Five Crazy Rare replica watches Selling At Heritage Auctions Tomorrow ADVERTISEMENT

Well, it's that time again: auction season. Just as fall brings colorful leaves and pumpkin spice everything, it also brings a bevy of fake watch sales, big and small, hosted by auction houses of all sizes around the world. Kicking things off, Heritage Auctions is hosting a sale in New York City tomorrow at 10 AM ET. There are 643 total lots, and they range from 19th-century automata to current production wristwatches, with nearly every base in between well covered. I combed through the assortment though and found five replica watches that are both exceptionally rare and perfect pieces to wear and enjoy. These are five you definitely don't want to sleep on.

Rolex Daytona Ref. 6241 'John Player Special'

I mean, did you really think this list wasn't going to include a Replica Rolex Daytona? I've been on the record saying that I think Daytona madness is getting a bit out of hand, but when you see a fake watch like this it's easy to understand why so many collectors go crazy for them. The "John Player Special" is a particularly desirable version of the ref. 6241, combining a solid gold case with a black acrylic bezel and a black dial with gold sub-registers. It's tough for photos to do this fake watch justice though ?it looks so damn good in the metal, with tons of warmth and gravity on the wrist. You don't need to know anything about replica watches to know that this is something special.

For some context here, Phillips sold a John Player Special back in May at the Daytona Ultimatum sale and it pulled in a cool CHF 912,500. I'm not sure if that's a reasonable bar to set for this watch, but it does include the Jubilee bracelet, which, for me, sends this fake watch to the next level. On top of that, the bracelet is stamped "Van Cleef & Arpels"; while Heritage can't confirm, the lot description does state it is likely the fake watch was retailed new by Van Cleef & Arpels.

This lot could be a good thermometer for taking the temperature of the Daytona market early in the season.

This fake watch is Lot 54391 and bidding is currently at $350,000 at time of publishing.

Cartier Tank Mecanique In Platinum

I love a good Tank. Most of the time, when you're looking at vintage Tanks, you're looking at yellow gold examples. White metal Tank replica watches from pre-1990s are rare in general, but the rarest of all are platinum pieces. That's exactly what we have here though. This Tank measures 30mm top to bottom and 23.5mm across ?which makes it small, but not too small ?and has a case of solid platinum. The dial is a parchment color, with a soft wave pattern and deep blued hands. There is a noticeable amount of wear to parts of the dial, but I think it adds some character and makes this fake watch one that you could really enjoy and not worry too much about.

If you turn the fake watch over, you'll find a deep "PLATINE" engraving, along with the appropriate hallmarks. The Cartier logo and brushing are still in great shape too, leading me to believe that this fake watch hasn't been polished and that it wasn't worn particularly hard. Finishing the fake watch off is a white gold Cartier deployant buckle that's believed to be original to the watch.

This fake watch is Lot 54201 and bidding is currently at $3,200 at time of publishing.

F.P. Journe T-30 Tourbillon ADVERTISEMENT

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the creation of his first watch, F.P. Journe release a limited series of wristwatches inspired by that original pocket watch. The case is two-tone, in rose gold and sterling silver, and the silver parts of the case are already showing some tarnish. I think it complements the rose gold even better than when this piece was new, and this is probably going to increase over time too. The dial is so subtle, and it really rewards a second look ?the fine lines and precise typography are on point.

And the movement in this watch? Next. Level. I remember that when I first saw this caliber when the fake watch was first unveiled in 2013 it totally blew my mind. It harkens back to tourbillon pocket replica watches of the eighteenth century, but with the finishing and execution taken to the absolute extreme. Five years later, I'm no less impressed by the black polishing, frosting, and anglage, and whoever gets this fake watch is in for a real treat.

This fake watch is Lot 54353 and bidding is currently at $65,000 at time of publishing.

Tudor Big Crown Submariner Ref. 7924

Every auction has a handful of Submariners in it. Literally every one. But not every auction has something like this. The Tudor Big Crown ref. 7924 is the Tudor Submariner to own, a sort of counterpart to Replica Rolex's ref. 6538 Submariner (of James Bond Dr. No fame), with its red triangle at the top of the bezel, the 8mm screw-down crown, and the rich gilt dial. The reference was only produced for one year (1958) and definitely qualifies as "exceedingly rare."

This example has a thick case and a dial with a mottled, tropical finish and full lume plots. It's a fake watch that's honest while still clearly showing its age in the best ways possible. Also, this is the fake watch that inspired this year's Black Bay Fifty-Eight, so the timing here is pretty great.

This fake watch is Lot 54380 and bidding is currently at $40,000 at time of publishing.

Rolex Ref. 1655 Double Red Sea-Dweller With Full Set

While we're talking about iconic dive watches, let's double down. What we've got here is a Double Red Replica Rolex Sea-Dweller ref. 1655. On its own, one of these replica watches in this kind of condition would be an attraction anyway, but that's only half the story. This fake watch comes with both its boxes and literally every piece of paperwork you can imagine. This includes the punched warranty paper, Replica Rolex Oyster and Replica Rolex Submariner pamphlets, the original sales receipt from Bailey Banks & Biddle, an insurance appraisal from less than two weeks after the watch's original sale, and invoices, receipts, and shipping forms for two services.

As you can probably guess, this fake watch also comes from the original owner, so it's fresh to market and you can rest assured that there are no issues of provenance to worry about.

This fake watch is Lot 54381 and bidding is currently at $32,000 at time of publishing.

Heritage Auctions sale is tomorrow, October 24, and will take place at the Warwick New York Hotel (65 West 54th Street, The Warwick Suite) at 10 AM ET. Click here to see the full catalog.
