Sotheby’s New U.S. Head of Watches on Why Collectors Are Seeking UK Luxury Fake Watches Online With Riveting Stories

Fresh off of RollieFest, a two-day N.Y.C. gathering of some of the watch world’s biggest collectors, Geoff Hess, Sotheby’s new senior vice president and head of watches in the Americas, described his reaction when 175 collectors from 17 countries brought out their finest timepieces.

“I felt as if I had opened a bank without a vault,” Hess tells Robb Report.

The estimated value of all those top replica watches—including heaps of Rolexes, as the name of the event implies, but also Pateks, Cartiers, and APs—was “certainly millions,” he says. “No matter what part of the world you’re from, how young or how old, we all share the same passion for the details of our watches, the history they share.”

Hess is bringing that same spirit of inclusiveness to his new gig at Sotheby’s, which he started just two months ago, one year to the day from when he resigned from Phillips, where he’d served for four years as an international specialist in the watch department.

“I had a great experience at Phillips, I wasn’t disgruntled,” he says. “I had a six-month garden leave period and a six-month non-compete and it was quite flattering that Sotheby’s was willing to wait one year for me.”

As he gears up for his first New York sale, set for Dec. 7, Hess lays out his grand vision for how the high quality fake watches collecting category will evolve. “You’ll see a real focus on watches with provenance and narratives that collectors can connect with, watches with stories—and maybe a little less attention on the hype steel sport watches that attracted so much attention last year,” he says. “We have some single-owner collections coming, and a couple are even named, which is unusual.”

“I think collectors in general will be less focused on those hype steel sport replica watches for sale,” Hess adds.

So which makers, models, and eras are poised to rise in their place?

One promising direction points to the 1980s and ’90s, the period also known as “neo-vintage.”

“It represents a natural progression for a newer generation of collectors who’ve been buying mainly newer cheap UK copy watches,” Hess says. “The natural progression would be to go back one generation, not to the 1940s or ’50s, but to the ’90s, and that’s very consistent with what we’re seeing with respect to online sales.

“Online sales have been embraced by this new generation of millennials, attracting a newer and younger audience to our sales,” he adds. “Given we’re seeing an influx of new buyers, it’s not terribly surprising that there’s some focus on neo-vintage.”

The period is often associated with early Daniel Roth, Breguet, and Parmigiani, but Hess says he’s seeing “a huge increase in neo-vintage with respect to Rolex. Now people are looking at 16750s, the five-digit Swiss made Rolex replica watches. There’s much more newfound interest in that line.”

Dress watches may seem like they’ve been on the precipice of a more mainstream revival for a few years now, but Hess says that given the growing interest in smaller watches, now may be the moment dress styles finally lift off. Luxury Cartier fake watches‘ resurgence has a good deal to do with that.

“At Cartier, it was all about case shapes and iconic designs—they weren’t sport watches,” he says. “The Crash, the Cloche, the Assymetrique—all are smaller dress watches being embraced by collectors in a way we’ve never seen.”

Hess attributes the mania for Cartier to a broader trend that began during the pandemic, when interest in best replica watches soared. “So many new collectors are discovering the joy of collecting and with so many new eyes on the hobby, people are looking around like never before,” he says.

“It’s no secret that a lot of the sport 1:1 super clone watches are difficult to find, and allocation becomes a big issue, so you start looking around. And people are discovering things that have been underappreciated for so long. People haven’t talked about Breguet in a very long time.

AAA China Cartier replica watches is the best example,” he adds. “The Cloche, the new Tank Normal, one after the next, people are gravitating to these incredible iconic models.”

In the contemporary space, independent watchmakers continue to garner interest — but Hess emphasizes that their relatively low volume of production is the chief attraction for collectors.

“I’m seeing a great interest in the production of Lange,” he says, referring to the revered German maker A. Lange & Söhne, which belongs to the Richemont group. “They’re not an independent brand but their production levels are far lesser than other brands owned by big conglomerates. People are appreciating their innovation and construction and the rarity. That’s one brand where I’m always bullish.”

Hess spent a year nurturing such optimism, reflecting on the springboard that Phillips gave him into the auction category. “I’d been a collector for 30 years, but I had never worked on the auction side,” he says. “It was invaluable training for me.”

“I would not have been qualified for my current position without my experience at Phillips. And more importantly, anytime you work for people like Aurel Bacs, you come out wiser and better,” he adds, referring to the charismatic Geneva-based auctioneer who runs Phillips’ watch department through his consultancy, Bacs & Russo. “I liken it to a sport: When you play tennis with people much better than you, you come out better.”

During the year he spent on the sidelines of the wholesale replica watches business, however, Hess hardly skipped a beat on the networking front. “I had lunches and dinners with collectors virtually every single day of the year,” he says. “My wife said, ‘You’re the busiest unemployed guy I know.’”

For nine months, he also worked on RollieFest, a labor of love if ever there was one. “Watches don’t just tell time,” Hess concludes. “They connect people.”

Why Ange Postecoglou’s Best Quality UK Fake Watches Collection Spells Hope For Spurs Winning Trophies Under Him

“And through it all, we’ll play the way we want too, with big Ange Postecoglou. Whether I’m right or wrong.” In this instance, Robbie Williams – and the Spurs fans singing this chant all around N17 – might be right. For now at least, Tottenham Hotspur have a new ange-l of a manager in no-nonsense talking Aussie larrikin, Ange Postecoglou.

Such is the Spursy nature of both Spurs fans and players, that could change in the space of a few matches. Completely irrespective of this, Postecoglou’s cheap UK replica watches game is all class, albeit very much not reflective of the lively way in which he has Heung-Min Son, James Maddison et al playing football.

That’s not to say he wears boring Swiss made fake watches – they are just a bit more on the classic side than we perhaps anticipated from the former Celtic, Yokohama F Marinos, Australia, Melbourne Victory, Brisbane Roar and Whittlesea Zebras (us neither) gaffer. Given the goals, the drama and the entertainment that’s been on show so far, some might assume the person responsible could own a rowdy, more daring set of AAA replica watches.

The last time Spurs won a trophy (2008 and counting), the Aussie was doing very little of note as the coach for Greek side Panachaiki. But having won the treble at Celtic last season, there are high hopes silverware might be on its way to White Hart Lane, not just in the shape of Postecoglou’s 1:1 top copy watches collection.

It’s very early in the season but so far it appears he has two go-to pieces (a Rolex Explorer II and an IWC Portugieser Automatic, both 42mm). Though there are no signs of him being superstitious (like he is with his lucky jumper) about rocking one at home games and the other away – yet – there are certainly a few details we can read into to determine how successful a Spurs manager he might be*.

Replica Rolex Explorer II ‘Polar’ 16570 Watches

Some people flex fake watches for sale; Postecoglou definitely just wears his. Nevertheless, in the 2-2 season opener against Brentford, intentionally or not Postecoglou showed his allegiance to his new club (the Lilywhites) through the colour of his watch – wearing white high quality replica Rolex Explorer II watches. This might sound like an oxymoron but the Explorer II is one of the more accessible (affordable and attainable) Rolex models, as well as being one of the sportiest. This plays into Postecoglou’s no-fuss approach to seemingly everything. It’s a watch that tells him the time, the date, and can handle a bit of an adventure week in week out (aka the highs and lows of supporting Spurs).

One other thing to note about the luxury Rolex Explorer II super clone watches is that over the 50-odd years it’s been in existence, the look of it hasn’t changed much. As many watch nerds can attest, Rolex is all about incremental changes and design continuity is one factor that makes the Crown so successful and stable in value. Success via stability is definitely something Spurs fans will be hoping big Ange can bring to their team. Also seen wearing it again for Spurs’ demolition of Burnley goes some way to proving it might be his no.1 choice.

Fake IWC Portuguieser Automatic IW500710 Watches

Postecoglou’s predecessors – of which there are many recent ones – were (generally speaking) far more fancy and flash in their horological tastes. Antonio Conte had a tussle with Thomas Tuchel wearing a Rolex Daytona and Jose Mourinho was big into Hublot Big Bangs to name a few. That said, anyone who knows about Swiss movements replica watches will vouch for the fact that having this classic IWC model play second fiddle to a Rollie doesn’t just point to astute watch rotation, it also shows big Ange hasn’t just googled best wholesale fake watches for football managers and followed suit. If he had googled such, he might have noticed Jurgen Klopp is a big IWC fan, though he’s more of a Big Pilot’s kinda guy. Postecoglou and Portuguieser may be a perfect match (phonetically as well as tonally to Spurs away colours) but given this model has been classed as a benchmark in the world of luxury replica watches online for – wait for it – more than 90 years, him strapping one to his wrist denotes a level of horological knowledge and expertise that not only surpasses past Spurs coaches, but also reveal much about his personality. He’s far more interested in doing his homework rather than just going along with the hype – be it for his players, tactics or watches.

While there remains a level of consistency between the two perfect replica watches (same size, both automatic movements), it’s the differences (tool watch vs pilot’s watch; steel bracelet vs leather strap; white vs blue dial) that show Postecoglou has a plan B when plan A isn’t working. Which is why, however mad it might seem, we believe his watch game provides as good a bearing as any about how Postecoglou will fare at Spurs – regardless of what Robbie Williams sings about him.

UK 1:1 Top Most Popular Fake Watches For 2022

As we kick off our first publishing day for 2023, we take a moment to review what you told us were what you wanted to see on this site over the last 12 months. These are the most popular Swiss made replica watches for 2022.

Our pick of 6 excellent GMT watches which are great alternatives to the Rolex GMT-Master II Replica Watches

Next up, another list! This time, Rolex fever grows strong. Over the last few years, especially, availability of AAA UK Rolex fake watches have become as scarce as hen’s teeth. Getting your hands on one is like obtaining a prized possession, requiring that you become eternally grateful to the authorised dealer who allowed you to buy one. This is strange retailer-consumer relationship dynamics, with the tables turned. But such is the current state of affairs. Sigh.

The article lists 6 alternatives to the cheap replica Rolex GMT-Master II watches, a superb watch, but an unobtainable one due to its extreme popularity. So our list comprise of suggestions of 6 alternatives.

Review: The New Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar Chronograph Ref. 5270P-014 Fake Watches

And in fourth place, we finally have a review. We do pride ourselves as one of the few remaining websites to offer long form, detailed and comprehensive reviews with our own photography. These reviews take a long time and a lot of effort to prepare and publish. But it seems to us that our readers continue to prefer lists, and easier to read briefings.

And it takes a magnificent perpetual calendar chronograph from the venerated maison of high quality Patek Philippe copy watches to make the cut.

Perhaps its the magnificent degrade green dial which stole the cake. But we think its the continuation of the fascinating combination of the perpetual calendar measuring long periods of time in juxtaposition with the chronograph designed to measure short periods of time which captivates the imagination. Of course, the mystique of the best replica Patek Philippe watches maison, and the superbly excellent design and finishing are also critical.

Review: The New Replica Patek Philippe Calatrava Ref. 5226G-001 Watches

And as if to prove the mastery of the Patek Philippe house to captivate imagination, next on the list is another Swiss movements Patek Philippe fake watches. This time, the time only Ref. 5226.

But this Calatrava is perhaps atypical of perfect Patek Philippe replica watches. A new design language utilising their signature hobnail pattern, but on the case side instead of the bezel or dial, and choosing a very interesting textured surface for the dial makes the Ref. 5226 a much more casual Calatrava than ever was before. And truly an very interesting direction from this grand maison.

UK Cheap Rolex Explorer 214270 Replica Watches For Men

I am aware that my colleague Ignacio also showed you an aaa fake Rolex Explorer in his Pre-Owned Spotlight article last week. His pick was an early one from 1957. Although that watch is still clearly related to the modern Explorer, many things have changed. Not all of them are for the best — I’ll be the first to admit that — but in general, you could say that in terms of technical aspects, a modern perfect replica Rolex UK is better than its older counterparts. One of the things that makes this cheap copy 2012 Rolex Explorer 214270 so interesting to me is that it is a 39mm watch.

The original Explorer was, as you know, 36mm, and the current luxury super clone Rolex Explorer has that same diameter as well (again). Rolex reintroduced the 36mm Explorer in 2021, simultaneously discontinuing the 39mm version. The latter only survived for 11 years, which, in Swiss made replica Rolex terms, is a rather brief period. I am not very interested in the effect this might have on the value over time, but I like oddities. Whether they’re particular models (the Milgauss and Yacht-Master come to mind) or odd sizes, the less common Rolex replica watches for sale uk are interesting to me.

The 39mm high quality fake Rolex Explorer looks better on my wrist than the 36mm Explorer (my wife has one, and I’ve tried it many times). On the first 39mm Explorers, the minute hand was too short and didn’t reach the minute markings on the dial. While aaa quality super clone Rolex corrected this later on with the”Mark II”, this is the earlier version with the short minute hand.

This Swiss movement replica Rolex Explorer 214270 is offered on Xupes for €8,699 and comes with the original Rolex box and papers. I realize that this price is higher than the retail price of a new top super clone Rolex Explorer (€7,000), but that’s today’s situation. If you prefer the current 36mm version, you might find some luck at the authorized best copy Rolex dealer.

UK Best Quality Replica Watches For Young Men And Women

Fake Cartier Pasha And Rolex Explorer 14270

The perfect fake Cartier Pasha on a man was the only way to make this work. I like that it’s also two-tone. He’s giving high-school jock energy in this photo with that jacket. I think it’s ironic that he’s wearing a luxury replica Cartier Pasha, which would’ve been a girl’s watch at that time. Instead of your girlfriend borrowing your watch, you could borrow hers. And then the cheap fake Rolex Explorer – it’s the perfect unisex tool watch because it’s 36mm. It’s masculine without being overbearing, which is so cool.
Replica TAG Heuer Formula 1 41mm Date

I love the 1:1 replica TAG Heuer Formula 1. This is where TAG excels. It’s so sporty as well, especially with the letterman jacket. I think the best of TAG is watches like the original AAA fake TAG Heuer Formula 1. Watches that are not too serious. The bezel is really cool, and the crown matches the bezel. And the LV jacket really just ties it all together with the white pants. It’s almost a year-round, go-anywhere look. You can wear white pants to the bodega if you want.


A few months ago, we came across a rather special prototype (first spotted by Jake at Rolex Magazine), a titanium edition of the cheap fake Rolex Yacht-Master 42 worn by Sir Ben Ainslie. Rolex has never used titanium to make an entire watch. Period! Until the discovery of this prototype, a No-Date YM with a matte titanium case. It seems that luxury replica Rolex UK was going back to its roots with experimental watches, testing purpose-built models in real-life conditions. Ainslie has been spotted on several occasions with this watch, including during the 2021 Prada Cup. The copy watch in question was an instrumental take on this white gold version, made in an alloy named RLX Titanium, with a matte dial and no date.

Having spotted this best quality replica Rolex in the wild inspired us to adapt the concept to a standard edition available to the general public. So here’s what could be the first-ever commercialized Rolex titanium watch, a sporty, toned-down super clone Rolex Yacht-Master 42 Titanium. The way we’ve envisioned this watch is relatively simple: a 42mm case in a matte, darker titanium tone, yet identical in shape and proportions to the white gold version. The textured bezel with its raised scale would also be retained. In addition to having a time-only display, the dial would also display a new matte texture and hands matching the colour/material of the case.

Below deck, we’d find the classic calibre 3230, shared with the Submariner 124060. And to continue with the nautical/regatta vocation, this version could be worn on the brand’s superb Oysterflex rubber bracelet – we don’t honestly expect AAA quality fake Rolex to release a textile NATO strap… This way, this 1:1 replica Rolex Yacht-Master 42 Titanium No-Date could recuperate the sporty credentials of the YM collection while still being different from the Submariner.

UK Best Quality Replica Rolex Sea-Dweller Deepsea ref. 116660

Some of you will know that there is only one Swiss made fake Rolex that I would love to own, and that’s the Sea-Dweller ref. 16600. It was my pick for the best replica Rolex watches from the 1980s. But after its discontinuation in 2009, the follow-up to my favorite Sea-Dweller was a huge slap in the face. People were stunned in 2008 when 1:1 UK fake Rolex introduced the Sea-Dweller Deepsea ref. 116660, otherwise simply known as “the Deepsea”.

The Sea-Dweller was no longer the Submariner’s bigger brother. The Deepsea looked more like its nephew on steroids. AAA fake Rolex decided to take a different route with the Deepsea, making it bigger, bulkier, and improving its specs.

First off, the case size increased from 40mm to 44mm. A nice detail is that best quality replica Rolex chose to use a titanium case back to ensure that the watch wouldn’t be too heavy. For the Deepsea, Swiss movement copy Rolex improved the water-resistance to a whopping 3,990 meters (or 12,800 feet). It was made possible by using a 5mm-thick sapphire crystal to withstand the pressure.

Furthermore, it was equipped with an automatic helium valve at 9 o’clock. And lastly, top Swiss replica Rolex equipped the watch with a visible Ringlock system that made it possible to keep its chunky presence limited to 17.7mm thick. Alas, its dimensions were by no means modest. People who have worn the Deepsea will know that it’s a proper chunk of steel.

A familiar movement
Next to improving its performance, Swiss movement fake Rolex also equipped the watch with a Cerachrom bezel, new Chromalight lume, and a new movement as well. The first-generation Deepsea was powered by Rolex caliber 3135. This movement has become one of the brand’s most well-known movements. It operates at 28,800vph and has a power reserve of 48 hours. As most of you will know, cheap replica Rolex UK used the movement for almost 30 years before replacing it with caliber 3235 in 2015. Rolex updated the Deepsea in 2018 and equipped it with the new movement.

What more is there to say about the heavyweight of uk luxury replica Rolex divers? It is an impressive watch that is a great professional diving tool. But as we all know, most of the Rolex Sea-Dweller Deepsea fake watches online will not see the great depths of the seas of our planet. As a regular daily watch, the Deepsea is not for most people. It is too big, chunky, and heavy for most people to wear on their wrists.

But the Swiss made copy Rolex Deepsea has a large group of dedicated fans who like its big and bold presence. But it’s safe to say it’s a divisive watch and why it is the entry point of this week’s list. Finding a Rolex ref. 116660 fake for men is not that hard, and you can expect to pay roughly between €10K and €15K. The “James Cameron” D-Blue edition with the same reference number was introduced in 2014 and starts at roughly €15K.

WATCH COLUMNS: Should I invest in property, UK Swiss Replica Patek Philippe or Fake Rolex?

Property usually appreciates steadily with an average year on year gain of 5%, but the watch market is erratic. Some years will see 2 – 4% increases on minimal risk replica watches online uk, but in other years there will be 20% to 100% gains.

Investment grade watches
Unsurprisingly, Swiss made replica Rolex watches are among the best performing investment grade watches over a five year period.

A relatively safe investment option is the fake Rolex Submariner ref. 16800: its average 2016 price was £4,710, compared to £9,556 in 2021.

That’s a 102% gain, or 20% yearly average.

Likewise, the cheap fake Rolex Explorer II ref. 216570 saw an 88% gain in the same five year period, with today’s average price standing at £10,000, a 17.5% average annual gain from its 2016 value of £5,330.

The luxury replica Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711 has seen an impressive 370% gain in the last five years, from a 2016 price of £17,600 to a current value of around £108,000.

While this is certainly not indicative of a typical investment experience in the watch market, it does highlight the importance of having industry knowledge and insight.
Another example is the white gold 1:1 copy Richard Mille RM11, which has risen from £74,000 in 2016 to a present day value of around £180,000, a gain of 142%.

While a Richard Mille replica online might not have appeared to be a great investment five years ago, the vast majority of RM copy watches for sale are now experiencing similar levels of appreciation.

Brands including Tudor, Vacheron Constantin, Bulgari and Cartier are currently making exceptional strides as investment vehicles but while they pose a greater risk than safe brands like high quality super clone Rolex, they offer the potential for far greater returns.


Replica Watch spotting in films has become somewhat of a sport for many enthusiasts. Getting a pixelated glimpse of a lug here and an applied numeral there under a cuff can send many to forums and blogs in search of the exact model. Although sometimes the identification of perfect replica watches are made a lot easier through the help of brand partnerships defining a certain amount of screen time and even social media coverage.

While the world of brand partnerships has grown exponentially in recent years, it’s not the only way best 1:1 replica watches end up on screen. From actors seeking advice from experts to bringing their own timepieces on set, there are plenty of paths to AAA quality fake watches appearing on the silver screen.
After a UK copy watch has been identified, the speculation as to how it got there begins. With the various ways that a best quality replica watch could end up adorning a celebrity’s wrist, the mystique of the how and why can lead many down a rabbit hole. Anyone on Instagram is acutely aware of the array of pages dedicated to celebrity super clone watch spotting, as well various websites, all of which allow you to conduct your own research.

Whether organic or paid for, the value of a few seconds of screentime for a brand is undoubtedly valuable. In fact, the celebrity cachet attached has, in several instances, been immortalised in watch collecting culture.
While this is perhaps the obvious choice to start with, it would be remiss of us to talk about wholesale replica watches UK in films and not mention the world’s most famous secret agent. In the six-plus decades since the franchise’s first inception, 007 has sported a handful of iconic fake wristwatches online, which often doubled as gadgets.

When Bond first appeared on screen in 1962 in Dr. No, played by Sean Connery, a cheap fake Rolex Submariner reference 6538 was on his wrist. Bond fans will instantly know that he famously wore a best replica Rolex in the novels. Interestingly, Bond’s creator, Ian Fleming, didn’t specify which model or reference the secret agent wore, only that it was a “heavy UK copy Rolex Oyster Perpetual on an expanding bracelet.” According to popular lore, Dr. No producer Albert Broccoli lent Connery a high quality replica Rolex for filming. Specifically, a highly collectible Rolex “Big Crown” Submariner reference 6538, nicknamed the “James Bond Submariner.”
In 1995, Pierce Brosnan revitalised the flagging franchise by stepping into Bond’s shoes in GoldenEye. He also found himself wearing an luxury copy Omega onscreen for the first time.

It was a decision from costume designer Lindy Hemming, who felt that a built-for-purpose Omega was a more authentic choice than a Swiss made replica Rolex, which was peak luxury in the 1990s. Watch industry titan Jean-Claude Biver, who was then the director of international marketing for Omega saw an opportunity and effectively turned James Bond into an top Swiss fake Omega ambassador. In fact, it was Biver’s suggestion to take a lower fee in exchange for more favourable contract terms when it came to Bond’s super clone Omega exclusivity. Suffice to say, this was a decision that paid off in the long run.

The domino effect of this decision has been felt in the two decades since, with Swiss made replica Omega firming up an official relationship with the Bond franchise and releasing a slew of limited edition “James Bond” Omegas. For luxury copy Omega, two of the biggest marketing events on the calendar are the release of a new Bond film, and the Olympic Games.
