Rolex announced no fewer than 16 new replica watches for 2021. The brand’s sport watches were naturally the most anticipated as the Explorer II celebrates its 50th anniversary, but there are some more exciting releases you won’t want to miss. They include some unexpectedly funky dials, some subtle but important updates and a couple of notable sleepers. Even small changes from Rolex are big news, so here are the takeaways from Rolex’s 2021 releases.
The next-generation cheap fake Rolex Explorer II is upgraded all around
There were predictions of something big for the Explorer II’s 50th birthday, but that didn’t materialize. Rather than a massive departure from the model that’s known and loved, the 2021 Explorer II is simply the new generation, packed with all the latest Rolex tech and features. Though visually almost identical to the previous reference, the biggest news for the Explorer II is its movement: Rolex’s automatic 3285 upgrades various features compared to the outgoing caliber, including a longer power reserve of 70-hours. (It’s the same movement that was introduced in the GMT Master II in 2018.)
In addition to the movement, the stainless steel case copy Rolex Explorer II is refined all around. Those refinements include the use the brand’s own Chromalight illumination for better low-light visibility of the dial, a slightly thinner case, and the latest Rolex Oyster bracelet. You’re basically getting the same great Explorer II with black or white dial options as before — only better.
