Bring A Loupe is going for the Midas touch this week, offering mostly yellow gold replica watches. We’ll begin with a very slick replica Rolex Precision “UFO” and a solid gold fake Rolex GMT-Master watch with a so-called “nipple dial.” Following those is a more modern gold Tank Asymetrique and a (you guessed it) gold-plated Gallet chronograph with a colorful dial.
The special look of the Rolex model explains its peculiar nickname, “UFO.” It is amazing to think that with this Precision, perfect Rolex replica watches was already offering a particular kind of integrated bracelet way back in the 1950s, when they wouldn’t truly take off for two decades. To add interest, this is actually the very first time I’ve seen such a watch in yellow gold! It gets even more captivating when you look at the engravings on the inside of the caseback and the clasp, respectively “DS&S” and “WAB.” Both indicate U.K. suppliers that the fake Rolex contracted in the 1950s, letting you know everything is in good order. While this watch is absolutely unique, there’s something very locally-produced about it that sets it apart.
As a matter of fact, there’s no need to introduce the GMT-Master model, although this yellow gold example comes with a specific dial, which carries a funny nickname. The “nipple dial” moniker comes from the very specific shape of the hour indexes, only found on yellow gold and two-tone sports Rolex watches from the ’70s and ’80s.
To be frank, it’s the same good old rolex replica GMT you know and love, only in solid cheap replica Rolex 18k yellow gold. It comes with the exact bezel, which has a brownish hue matching the tone of the dial (the two-tone models have a corresponding two color bezel). The caseback is engraved with a name and a date, probably the first owner, and the date of the purchase. It is a great sign of its history, although some collectors prefer a caseback without commemorative engravings. In terms of condition, the lugs clearly show some previous polishing, but this is to be expected on a piece of this age; similarly, though that’s unconfirmed, I would bet on some stretch in the bracelet.
