Two of the coolest Rolex replica watches we’ve ever seen will go on sale at Christie’s in Geneva on May 13th. One, the extremely rare pink and gold Rolex 6062 ‘Stelline’ tri-calendar with moon phase and the sought-after “star” dial, is expected to bring in as much as $2 million, making it a possible record-setting contender at a price at which the Rolex auction could easily exceed their estimates.
Christie notes that rose gold 50 refs. The 6062s was made by the iconic Swiss watch brand. There were only ten watches with Stelline’s star dial. The 6062(originally launched in the precursor to Baselworld back in 1950) was one of only two Rolex replica watches of the period fitted with moon phase.
The 3525 steel and gold chronograph is much cheaper, but more interesting is its former owner, pop icon Andy Warhol. It is an important watch for Rolex collectors, marking the first time Rolex matched a chronograph movement with an oyster case, and it was only made between 1939 and 1945.
This early Chrono has an interesting dial that says “ANTI-MAGNÉTIQUE,” and is said to carry the DNA of Daytona, the Rolex legend. While the steel and gold isn’t our favorite, but it’s from a celebrity, and while it doesn’t compare to Paul Newman or Steve McQueen, it’s definitely an extremely important watch.
Christie’s sold several other coveted Rolex items in the landmark sale, including a yellow “Padellone” best replica watch, no. 8171, commissioned by the family of the original owner and estimated at $450,000; A stainless steel “Paul Newman” Daytona 6263, with the Mark II dial, commissioned by the descendants of the original owner, is estimated at up to $550,000; There is also a “just released” no. 6239 with a tricolor dial dating to around 1969, with an estimate of $230,000.
Last but not least, there is a one-of-a-kind contemporary Rolex, the world’s first Daytona skeleton dial, made by the craftsman DE Geneve in collaboration with the racing legend Juan Pablo Montoya and estimated to cost as much as $100,000. Good luck to bidders!
