Single-Owner UK Fake Rolex Submariner ‘Explorer Dial’ 5512 Sells For Over $250,000

An original-owner Swiss made replica Rolex Submariner ref.5512, Explorer Dial, coming up for auction is not a regular occurrence, so when one does appear in the wild, it is most certainly newsworthy. One such watch, bought by a coal miner from Nottinghamshire England 56 years ago for a mere £70, came up at auction at Gardiner Houlgate out of the U.K., and just sold for £217,000 (well over $250,000). The estimates for the sale ranged from £150,000 – £250,000, so it fell at the higher end. The hammer price was £175,000, with the larger amount reflecting buyer’s premium and other associated fees.

According to the auction listing, the owner of the Rolex fake watch with black dial was born and raised in London. During World War II, he was conscripted as one of the so-called Bevin Boys, who were young men chosen by lottery to work in the coal mines in the North of England as part of the war effort (The name is taken from that of Ernest Bevin, who was Minister For Labour And National Service). The listing further indicates that he purchased the watch from Watches of Switzerland in London on December 22, 1964, as a 40th birthday present to himself. When he passed in 1995, he left the watch to his daughter and son-in-law, where it stayed in the family until this sale. Included in the auction catalog for this watch was an assortment of photos of the original owner and his Explorer Dial Sub. This is one of those kinds of stories you hardly ever hear anymore.
The origins of the Explorer Dial copy Rolex Submariner with steel bracelet date back to the mid-1950s with the reference 6200, known for its big crown and no crown guards (for a deep dive into all things Submariner, including Explorer dials, Stephen’s Reference Points is a must-read and a must-watch). We have seen a few examples of Explorer Dial 6200s in episodes of Talking Watches with both Mark Haddawy and John Mayer. You may also recall a certain seven-figure sale of a reference 6538 Explorer Dial Submariner back in 2018. Explorer Dial Subs were also produced in both the reference 5513 and 5512. Interestingly enough, most of the 5512 crop of Explorer Dials were made for the U.K. market, which certainly explains the watch that just sold here. All of this is to say that Explorer Dial Subs in any reference – but especially the 5512 – are exceedingly rare.
Speaking of which, I think the nature of this sale (in terms of provenance and rarity) puts it squarely in the category of some of the more crazy finds we have covered. I am thinking about the LeCoultre Deep Sea Alarm found in a bin at Goodwill for $5.99, or the more recent Antiques Roadshow episode with the unworn Paul Newman 6263 Daytona. Just when we think we have seen it all, something else comes along. If nothing else, this is a great story about a well-loved watch.

New 2020 Rolex Replica Watches UK With High Quality For Sale Online

Rolex replica would normally unveil its novelties for the year at Baselworld in March and have them on sale several months later in the summer or fall. But this year, most of the new watches hit authorized dealers in the same month.

Dealers are delighted by the timing of this year’s launches, the speed at which the new watches will hit stores and the highly commercial focus on entry level priced models including the steel case fake Rolex Submariner and steel Rolex Oyster Perpetual in 36mm and 41mm sizes. “I think the strategy is sound,” suggests Mr Betteridge.

“Their simplest movements with nothing but cool and shockingly new fashion colours should appeal to a new client, be easier to supply and will get those new folks into a watch that is engineered to a standard that is exceptional and will be new to them. I’ve always sold the Explorer 1 as the Timex without the stigma of low cost, but honestly it’s the most durable and accurate timepiece a rough character can buy; and then you make a buck selling it beat up,” he adds.

Damon Gross, chief executive of Hyde Park Jewelers, a Rolex AD with three stores in Denver, Colorado, is also a fan of the Oyster Perpetuals, particularly the 36mm Rolex Oyster Perpetual fake watches with vivid coloured dials.
“I think the “Stella” dials are the real sleeper,” he predicts. “If the Stella dials of the 50s and 70s are any indication, these should be a big winner for those who are paying attention.”

Rolex made DayDates with brightly colored enamel Stella dials in the 1970s, initially for the Middle Eastern market before they became more widely popular and collectible.

Commercially, it is the Submariners that have Hyde Park customers excited. “Cermit — my term for it — and the non-date Subs seems to be the big winners,” says Mr Gross.

For Roberto Chiapelloni, CEO of Manfredi Jewelers, which has a Rolex account in New Canaan, CT, the Submariner upgrade to a new movement and slightly larger 41mm case will do nothing to dent demand, but he is personally more excited about the Oyster Perpetuals and Swiss automatic movement Rolex Sky Dweller fake watch on an Oysterflex strap.

“It is quite easy to love the new copy Rolex Submariner, but I’m really happy with the Sky Dweller on the Oysterflex bracelet. It will appeal to a much larger audience, especially men who think a gold bracelet on a larger watch is a bit more then they want. The absolute winner from my clients, and myself, are the Oyster Perpetuals. The colors are a really welcome addition, and I can’t wait to see them in my store,” he tells us.

Hamilton a venerable American jeweller with three luxury boutiques in Princeton, Massachusetts, and Palm Beach, Florida, is being hit by a wave of demand from its affluent and expert customers.
“We have received hundreds of email and phone inquiries from our known clients and collectors, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive,” the company’s CEO Hank Siegel says.
“The subtle but significant changes to the Submariner and Submariner Date are terrific and will serve to enhance the desirability of that model range. We are very happy that the precious metal options in 18ct yellow gold and 18ct white gold were retained, as both are very good sellers for us. The entire range is a winner and will do well,” he predicts.

Mr Siegel was the only retailer responding to who mentioned the significant additions to Rolex’s ladies’ DateJust range. “The Datejust 31 upgrades and dial choices are terrific. As an example, the Oyster Steel with white gold and diamonds has many beautiful dial choices and provides a wonderful choice for a woman’s watch with a large number of variations in bracelet, dial, and bezel combinations to satisfy most every taste. We think that the sales of this style will continue to grow nicely,” he believes.

However, like many other Rolex partners, it is the Oyster Perpetuals that left the greatest impression. “We LOVE (Mr Seigel’s capital letters) the Oyster Perpetual introductions. Everything is right about them – the price range, the dial colors and the case size ranges. In particular the silver dial with the gold hands and chapter dots brings back a look that was made by Rolex years ago, and is beautifully updated. We think it is an instant classic. The fun other colors in tropical tones as well as the classic black and blue will appeal to an audience that previously may have passed over this reference, at an accessible price. We have had many , many calls and inquiries and are excited to be able to display these in our locations soon,” he concludes.
