Eric Clapton loves him some luxury Rolex replica watches. (And some Patek, but we’re talking about Rolex.)
So much so, in fact, that his collection is perhaps one of the most notable in the world. (I don’t even know what’s in it at the moment, but I feel comfortable making that grand, sweeping statement because I’ve seen some of the lots that have come up for auction over the years from his collection, and they’re kinda nuts: All manner of vintage top US replica Rolex Daytona watches and complicated, offbeat stuff. Rock star shit.)
And then there’s this thing, a Turn-O-Graph ref. 6202 from 1954, also owned by Clapton and going under the hammer at Christie’s as part of an online auction beginning tomorrow and ending on Dec. 10th. (Its estimate? $20,000-$40,000. LOL.) Never heard of the Turn-O-Graph before? That’s ok — it’s kind of a weird corner of 1:1 cheap Rolex fake watches history. But it’s important: Released in 1953, the model laid the groundwork for the Submariner, which curiously debuted the same year. (It looks at first glance like the Crown released both a prototype and the final product for public consumption — though the Turn-O-Graph was, in fact, a full-on production model. And it did not have the same intended use case as the Sub — see below.)
A quick glance at the 6202 reveals much of the same details that feature on the Sub: It’s got the black dial, triangle, dash and dot indices for hour markers, Mercedes hand set, screw-down crown, Oyster bracelet and — perhaps most importantly — a rotating bezel. (The 12 o’clock hashmark on this one features the famous “red triangle” found on certain early high quality replica Rolex Turn-O-Graph and Sub watches — a cool, subtle feature that’s found its way into the modern watch vernacular.)
The collector’s market for the Turn-O-Graph is an interesting one: It didn’t sell well and was pulled from the best online fake Rolex watches catalog about a decade after its release, though the nomenclature would resurface later. (What with all the marketing power behind the Submariner and a succession of releases that quickly improved upon one another, this perhaps isn’t a surprise. The Turn-O-Graph was sort of redundant replica watches for sale in the Rolex oeuvre.) Its use case was also interesting: Rolex designed it as a substitute for a chronograph, albeit one with increased water resistance: The bezel (“time recording rim” in early Rolex parlance) could be used to record elapsed time, and this is how it was marketed — to pilots and businessmen. It was also smaller than the Swiss movements Rolex Submariner fake watches at roughly 36mm, despite it’s Sub-like appearance.
For these reasons, it’s possible to snag a ref. 6202 — albeit admittedly, perhaps not a perfect one — for under $30,000 today, though because these copy watches shop site were made during the radium age, they’re sometimes found with tritium service dials. But compare, for a moment, the price of a 6202 with that of a 6205, a relatively early Submariner — you’re talking more like $50,000-$100,000. And if we’re talking about slightly later (but still relatively early) super clone Rolex Submariner watches store like the 6538, the “Bond” Sub — forget it: Multiple six figures.
Check this one out, for example, up on Chrono24. I can’t speak to the authenticity of the watch’s parts, the accuracy of the listing, etc, because I don’t know the bloke who listed it. But think about this watch for a moment: early best quality replica Rolex sports watches purchased by a USAF pilot in England in the early 50s with a gorgeous (albeit service) dial on its original bracelet, for $27,500. If it were an early Sub with that kind of provenance — pffff. Forget it. Particularly at auction.
This isn’t to say that Clapton’s Rolex Turn-O-Graph fake watches for men is going to hammer for a song — some notable collector in NYC will snag it for well above its estimate, which is calculated purposefully low anyway. I merely mention it to highlight the marriage of such an interesting, historically relevant, under-the-radar reference with such a notable personality and collector. Clapton was clearly struck by the 2021 replica Rolex Turn-O-Graph watches at some point in his collecting journey. Guess Slowhand was just ahead of the curve.

Somlo London & Omega Vintage
The 1970s were a time of experimentation for 1:1 cheap Omega replica watches who released a slew of imaginative watches featuring unusual dials. This excellent example is known as the soccer timer and introduces a 45 minute indicator on the chronograph minute counter, to aid football referees timing matches. Based on the venerable 861-calibre made famous by the fake Omega Speedmaster watches store, this watch was manufactured in 1972 and sent to the UK, available now at Somlo London.
Are The AAA Swiss Made Fake Omega Marine Chronometer The Most Accurate Vintage Watches Money Can Buy?
We wear US top replica watches to know the time… don’t we? Given that I, and many other collectors I know, have strapped a watch on in the morning and only later that afternoon realised the watch has been neither set nor wound, maybe it is more a piece of wrist jewellery than we realise. Having the correct time is another issue altogether. Smart 1:1 Swiss made fake watches and radio-controlled quartz have made the precise time available to all who want it, but lovers of vintage don’t seem to care much, often rotating their watch back into storage long before any significant discrepancy appears. But what if you love vintage watches but also prize supreme accuracy? Step forward, the luxury replica Omega Megaquartz Marine Chronometer watches.
The R&D frenzy that accompanied the launch of Seiko’s Astron quartz watch in 1969 and the flawed Swiss Beta 21 that followed in 1970 meant that improvements in quartz movement design came thick and fast. Top Omega fake watches put 30 million Swiss francs into the creation of an unbeatably accurate movement and came up with an oscillator that beat 288 times faster than that at the heart of the Beta 21, a watch accurate to five seconds a month. This calibre 1500, known as the “Elephant” due to its twin-battery “ears”, was accurate to less than a second a month and so qualified as a Marine Chronometer, a standard much higher than regular COSC chronometer certification for mechanical perfect replica watches. Battery life was still an issue, as the watch would only run for five weeks – unacceptable for long-term accuracy – and so further work was needed.
By 1972, cheap Omega replica watches had fixed the power-drain issue and released the calibre 1510, a non-chronometer rated but still supremely accurate watch as the Constellation Megaquartz. In 1974, a tweak to the movement saw the calibre number change to 1511, but, more importantly, a tweak to the marketing saw the fake watches with Swiss movements submitted to Besançon Observatory for 63 days of testing, a renaming to Constellation Marine Chronometer Megaquartz and a hike in the price. Each watch was sold with a detailed chronometer certificate detailing the watch’s performance during the test and the movement number engraved on a plaque affixed to the end of the imitation watches for sale case. The plaque and a matching screwed bezel were in 14k gold on a steel case, except for in France where the demand for visible hallmarks on all gold led to a rare steel-on-steel combination.
With such levels of accuracy, it was important not to interfere with the progression of the seconds hand. This meant that the Marine Chronometer also had an independently adjustable hour hand to allow for travel across time zones. To allow synchronisation with the atomic time signal, a small “hacking” button next to the crown allowed the second hand to be paused.
China wholesale copy Omega watches’ Marine Chronometer was produced until 1980, by which time the affordability and ubiquity of quartz left it looking expensive and irrelevant. It stands as an important landmark in consumer timekeeping, being the most accurate non-thermally compensated replica watches shop site ever made – a title it holds to this day. (Citizen’s calibre 0100, accurate to one second/year, is thermally compensated, temperature change being the greatest cause of variations in timekeeping.) Couple this with distinctive, utilitarian looks and you have the makings of an icon.
Unlike the non-chronometer-rated Megaquartz which came in a variety of configurations, the Marine Chronometer came in one look only, unless you count the French all-steel watches and the handful of all-18k-gold examples replica Omega watches for men produced as a rare, limited edition. This means that for those in the know, the Omega Marine Chronometer best quality super clone watches is instantly identifiable. Such extraordinary precision is, however, available for remarkably little cost. With a total production of around 7,000 pieces, these are not common watches, but neither are they impossible to find, but it is the ingrained snobbery against high-quality quartz that keeps the prices low. At auction you can pay as little as £1,200 for a watch on its own and as little over £3,000 for a rare “full set” with original box and papers. At a dealer you will pay more, but at least you should have the peace of mind of some kind of warranty. Beware of cheap non-runners. It could be a basic battery change, but with all vintage fake watches store paypal, especially vintage quartz, it’s a huge gamble and the subsequent repair bill can easily make the watch uneconomic. Let someone else do the hard work while you enjoy record-breaking time keeping for a bargain price.
