Sir Michael Caine Is Flogging Off His Personal 1:1 Top Fake Rolex Watches UK

It’s hard to believe that Sir Michael Caine is almost in his 90s. The legendary actor has been a paragon of British cool since the Swinging Sixties: his iconic Cockney accent, unflappable charm and suave dress sense, as well as his iconic roles in films such as Get Carter, The Italian Job and The Dark Knight trilogy.

Caine continues to dominate at the box office and on the silver screen – notably appearing in Christopher Nolan’s most recent mind-melter Tenet – but now, in 2022, he’s finally decided to slow down a bit. While he hasn’t retired from acting, he announced last year that he doesn’t want to make another film. Fair enough, too.

He’s also decided to sell some of his most prized possessions as he heads into his autumn years. On Sunday, noted London auction house Bonhams unveiled the sale as Sir Michael Caine: The Personal Collection, describing it as “a wonderful selection of items reflecting the breadth of Sir Michael’s career”… Including, most notably, Caine’s very own Rolex.

Specifically, it’s his 18ct yellow gold AAA UK replica Rolex Day-Date Oysterquartz watches (ref. 19018), which he’s worn on and off since the 80s, and even in films such as 1988’s Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.

As the name implies, it’s a quartz watch: something out of the ordinary for Rolex, which typically trades in automatic mechanical high quality fake Rolex watches. A reaction to the quartz crisis of the 70s, the Oysterquartz isn’t just atypical thanks to its movement – it also features a unique integrated bracelet design which perfect Rolex replica watches hasn’t revisited since.

Typically quartz best copy watches are less desirable than mechanical watches, but the Oysterquartz has a unique cult following thanks to its relative rarity. Rolex discontinued the Oysterquartz range in the early 00’s, so these replica Rolex watches wholesale online remain somewhat of a novelty; a curious historical footnote. Of course, this one is particularly desirable thanks to its great condition, as well as its celebrity connection.

It seems Bonhams have taken the lot down from their website – perhaps because of unprecedented demand or a pre-auction offer – but a preview on their website remains that gives an auction estimate of £8,000 – £12,000 (US$ 11,000 – US$ 16,000 / AU$ 15,000 – AU$ 23,000). That seems remarkably conservative, and we wouldn’t be surprised if it goes for much, much more.

Caine is actually a bit of fake watches for men connoisseur, having amassed a rather respectible collection over the years. Other than his Oysterquartz, he also owns a similar-looking, mechanical luxury super clone Rolex Day-Date ‘President’ watches, as well as pieces from brands as diverse as Accurist, Breitling, Certina, IWC Schaffhausen and Timex.

It’s not just his Rolex replica watches store site that’s going up for auction. Some other highlights include a pair of his iconic hexagonal glasses (pictured above) as well as a director’s chair from the set of Get Carter and a framed set of autographs from the 1970 Tony Awards ceremony including Julie Andrews, Mia Farrow, Barbra Streisand, James Stewart, Maggie Smith and of course, the great man himself.

“It’s going to be quite a wrench to part with so many treasured parts of my life and career, but it’s the right time to be moving on. I hope these mementoes will give their new owners as much pleasure as they have given us,” Caine explains.

It’s all set to go under the hammer in London on March 3rd. Not a lot of people know that.

What The 2022 UK Best Replica Rolex Watches Price Increase Means For Australian Consumers

While 1:1 Swiss replica watches brands love to talk about new model releases or brand ambassadors, they’re normally pretty tight-lipped about discontinuation or price increases – and no brand is more secretive than AAA UK Rolex fake watches, the world’s biggest watchmaker and the most famous luxury brand on the planet.

Hell, luxury Rolex replica watches is so tight-lipped about price increases that, according to insiders, they don’t even give their dealers that much of a heads-up – only revealing price increases as little as two weeks ahead of time. There’s no real set schedule for price increases, either, but it’s true that they’ve been more frequent over the last decade or so.

It can confirm that as of the 1st of January, high quality Rolex copy watches has indeed increased their retail prices for 2022… And not only that, but Australians have got a particularly raw deal.

The first thing worth noting is that the price increases aren’t even across the board. The average price increase was around 3-4%, but some models saw far greater price increases. Specifically, stainless steel models from Rolex’s “Professional” collection – which includes popular models like the cheap Swiss made replica Rolex Daytona, Explorer, GMT-Master and Submariner watches – saw average price increases of 10% or more.

But on top of that, it appears that in many cases, Australian prices for some models were increased more than prices in other markets. For example, the top wholesale fake Rolex Submariner ‘No Date’ (ref. 124060-0001) watches saw a 10.3% price increase in Italy and a 10.5% price increase in the United States, but a whopping 13.5% increase in Australia.

What gives? Well, it’s a function of the Australian dollar’s performance against the Swiss franc. On top of that, Swiss movements replica Rolex watches (indeed, many retailers) engages in what we’d like to call “aesthetic rounding”: that is, they like to round up their prices so that they end on a zero. You’ll never see a Rolex retail for $9,468; it’ll go for $9,500. If you catch our drift.

Rolex does go to great lengths to try and make sure their perfect super clone watches cost roughly the same no matter where you are in the world, in order to balance supply and demand. In that sense, we’re not being singled out – this isn’t an example of the ‘Australia Tax’ i.e. because we’re a small, geographically isolated market. It’s just due to our weaker dollar.

The million-dollar question is this: will the price increase affect the current ‘Rolex drought’? Probably not. It will probably just further push prices up on the second-hand/after/grey market (whatever you want to call it), but it’s hard to tell by how much. Prices on the aftermarket have long been rather disconnected and much higher than retail prices anyway…

All this means is that Australians will still continue to pay way too much for new top Rolex replica watches site, but we’re not significantly worse off than other consumers in other markets.

Aftermarket prices might become slightly higher in Australia as a reaction to the higher local retail price, but there’s unlikely to be a notable discrepancy between local aftermarket prices and overseas aftermarket prices – if prices get too silly locally, Aussies will just buy from overseas sellers, such is the nature of the beast.
