When it comes to collect rare watches – and especially Replica Rolex watches – there are the classical ones, the rare ones and the others, the ones that you can find only once in a lifetime. This goes for an Albino Replica Rolex Daytona, a tropical coffee Paul Newman or a lemon dial Daytona Prototype. Those are the kind of watches that hardcore collectors are dreaming of – and even with the necessary bank account, there’s potentially no chance to get your hands on one of them. Today, we found one of these ultra-rare birds, a one-of-six known, the über-rare prototype Replica Rolex Single-Red Sea-Dweller Ref. 1665 dialed 500M/1650FT. And it’s for sale!

Let’s go straight to the right question: what is a Single-Red Replica Rolex Sea-Dweller and why this watch can be THE Sea-Dweller? Anyone who’s collecting Rolex replica watches sale and who did some research about such rare pieces knows that there are some myths: the Albino Silver Daytona or the Yachtmaster Daytona are some of these. They exist, however finding one is almost impossible. Holy Grails require some time, some patience and some researches to finally have the chance to be added to a collection – and a huge bank account is probably necessary too. The Single-Red Sea-Dweller is part of these once-in-a-lifetime chances. Only six of them are known around the world – and the worst is that not all of them have the same specifications.

Basically, the Single-Red Replica Rolex Sea-Dweller can be seen as a prototype, a first try from Rolex to develop a robust dive Rolex replica watches with the help of professional divers and scientists. The first examples of commercialized Sea-Dwellers are known as the Ref. 1665 Double-Red – meaning that the dials are written ‘Sea-Dweller – Submariner 2000’ on two line and in red (so-called Double-Red dials). They are featuring a helium escape valve and they can resist to water up to 2000ft / 610m. However, even if rare and highly sought after, the Double-Red is a known watch, produced and reported by Rolex as a commercial item. The question of the Rolex Single-Red Sea-Dweller Ref. 1665 dialed 500M/1650FT is a bit more complex.

We can assume that before launching the ‘officialRolex Replica Sea-Dweller on the market, Rolex made several attempts/tests to build a more robust dive watch based on a Submariner. Back in 1966 / 1967 Rolex might have created – together with COMEX – a series of prototypes intended to be tested and to see if they could meet the expectations of professional divers. These early examples of the Sea-Dweller came with a specific dial with the four lines you can see bellow, and a 500M / 1650FT water resistance.

Even if only six of them are known today, the production of the Replica Rolex Single-Red Sea-Dweller was certainly higher. The reason why these Single-Red watches are so rare now-a-days, could be simple. After a series of test, the early Sea-Dweller prototypes proved to be waterproof at depths greater than the original 500 meters (as written on the dial). As the fake Rolex watches uk were later sent in to Rolex for service, every parts was upgraded (dials, hands, cases with helium escape valve…) to the new specifications of the commercial Rolex Sea-Dweller Double-Red 2000ft, making the examples of the Single-Red potentially extinct – except for six of them, as reported (that sold for CHF 490,900 Swiss Francs).

Now comes the difficult part of the game, because even among those 6 cheap replica Rolex watches, we can spot some differences. Antiquorum states that two of them feature a helium escape valve and a patent pending case-back and bracelet. The other prototype Replica Rolex Single-Red Sea-Dweller Ref. 1665 – as the one we’re showing you here – comes with a case without helium escape valve, and also without “PATENT PANDING” engravings on the case-back – making it basically a Rolex Submariner with a greater water resistance.

This example of Replica Rolex UK Single-Red Sea-Dweller Ref. 1665 with 500M/1650FT dial – which is for sale in Luxemburg – is in an amazing condition, with a sharp case (with chamfered lugs) and bezel and still has its original tritium dial and hands. The case-back shows the reference 1665 engraved inside and it is reported to be a 1967 example.

Reviewing Replica Rolex Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II

Rolex replica watches uk presents a world first with its new version of the Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II equipped with a two-colour Cerachrom bezel insert in red and blue, combining the best in high technology with the iconic aesthetics of the original 1955 model. This colour combination, long considered impossible to create in ceramic, is a dream come true for enthusiasts of this emblematic model.

Unique two-colour Cerachrom bezel

A technological and aesthetic feat, the new red and blue Cerachrom bezel insert is obtained via a unique manufacturing process developed and patented by Rolex, which enables the production of a single-piece, bulk-coloured ceramic component in two distinct colours. This insert echoes the traditional two-colour bezel of the original Replica Rolex GMT-Master and GMT-Master II models. An exceptional achievement on two counts, the innovation consists of creating a red ceramic disc – a colour that, in itself, is extremely difficult to obtain – and then locally modifying the chemical composition of each grain, right to the core of the ceramic, to change the red into blue over only half the insert with a perfectly clear demarcation between the two colours. The Rolex Cerachrom bezel inserts, introduced in 2005, have the advantage of being virtually scratch-resistant, highly corrosion-resistant, and their colour is unaffected by ultraviolet rays. Their diamond-polished surface offers a long-lasting lustre. The 24-hour graduation is engraved in the ceramic and coated with platinum via PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition).

The Oyster case, symbol of waterproofness and robustness

Replica Rolex GMT Master II


The GMT-Master II’s 40 mm Oyster case, guaranteed waterproof to a depth of 100 metres (330 feet), is a paragon of robustness, proportion and elegance. The characteristically shaped middle case is crafted from a solid block of 18 ct white gold, cast by Rolex in its own foundry. The fluted case back is hermetically screwed down with a special tool exclusive to fake Rolex watchmakers. The winding crown, fitted with the patented Triplock triple waterproofness system, screws down securely against the case. It is protected by a crown guard that is an integral part of the middle case. The crystal, with a Cyclops lens at 3 o’clock for easy reading of the date, is made of virtually scratchproof sapphire. The waterproof Oyster case provides optimal protection for the GMT-Master II’s high-precision movement.

Replica Rolex GMT Master II

The GMT-Master II is equipped with calibre 3186, a self-winding mechanical movement with a second time zone function and date display entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. Like all Rolex Perpetual movements, the 3186 is a certified Swiss chronometer, a designation reserved for high-precision watches that have successfully passed the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC) tests. Its design and quality manufacture ensure peerless precision and reliability. The oscillator, the true heart of the Replica Rolex GMT Master II watch, has a blue Parachrom hairspring patented and manufactured by Rolex in an exclusive alloy of niobium and zirconium. Insensitive to magnetic fields, the Parachrom hairspring offers great stability when exposed to temperature variations and remains up to 10 times more precise in case of shocks than a traditional hairspring.

Solid-link bracelet and safety clasp

The new GMT-Master II is fitted with a solid-link Oyster bracelet in 18 ct white gold, with an Oysterlock safety clasp that prevents accidental opening. It also features the ingenious cheap replica Rolex-patented Easylink rapid extension system that allows the wearer to easily increase the bracelet length by approximately 5 mm, for additional comfort in any circumstance.

Top Watches Meet the Rolex Replica Pepsi UK

It happened before the BaselWorld Fair even opened to the public. Just a couple of days before, a few members of the top Rolex replica watches press got the first look at the new Replica Rolex Oyster Perpetual GMT Master II watch. A world’s first, this timepiece features a Cerachrom bezel created in blue and red. Suddenly, the timepiece had a nickname: Pepsi. The reason for the moniker is evident with just one look at the timepiece. The press-given title also has roots in the original pieces made in the 1950s for Pan Am – they were nicknamed accordingly because of the red and  black aluminum inserts of the day. The new watch,  mind you, this is one expensive Pepsi at $38,250.

Replica Rolex Oyster Perpetual GMT Master II watch features a distinctive red and blue Cerachrom bezel.

In fact, the Replica Rolex GMT Master II watch is a grand mix of aesthetics, high technology and – well – Rolex DNA. It recalls the original two-toned m 1955 model but features a color combination ceramic bezel that was long thought impossible to create.   The red and blue Cerachrom monoblock bezel   is quite complex and expensive to make.  One of the difficulties in creating this Cerachrom bezel comes with the heating process and its relation to the color red. In intense heating and firing, red breaks down reducing its vibrancy. To achieve the intense red hue, Rolex engineers had to totally reconfigure the molecular structure of the color – no easy feat. Then, , via a specially developed and patented  manufacturing process, each grain of the chemical composition is locally modified to the core of the ceramic to change the red into blue on half of the bezel insert.

The coloration of the bezel with distinctive start/end colors is the result of a patented process.


The Rolex Cerachrom bezels  were first introduce nearly a decade ago and have the distinction of being virtually scratch resistant, highly corrosion resistant and unaffected by UV rays. Underscoring the material’s resistance to the elements, Replica Rolex Yachtmaster choose to unite this bezel with famed, robust Oyster case – with guaranteed water resistant to 330 feet.

The case is crafted from a solid block of 18-karat white gold.

The 40mm watch features a black lacquer dial, Chromalight applied hour markers and hands and an Oyster bracelet.  You can ask about the Replica Rolex Oyster Perpetual GMT Master II watch at your authorized Rolex jeweler, but they will most likely know it better as the Pepsi watch.

Introducing The First Best Rolex Replica Submariner Watches UK

Rolex produced the very first Submariner in 1953 with this model ref. 6204 watch. The Replica Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner would go on to not only become one of the most iconic timepieces in the world, but also one of the most heavily emulated, desired, and studied. The Replica Rolex Submariner was the first diver’s watch from Rolex and followed a legacy that started in 1926 when Rolex released its first water-resistant Rolex replica watch, the Oyster.

Replica Rolex Submariner - 1953

Rolex really began its life in making dive watches with Panerai. True enough, early Panerai watches contain Rolex movements, and for a while in the 1930s, the Swiss and Italian companies worked together on military dive watches based on Panerai asking Rolex to help it produce timepieces for the Italian Navy. Rolex learned from this experience but it was not until the 1950s that Rolex would release its own dive Rolex replica watches. The original Replica Rolex Submariner began a long era of experimentation and improvement. The original ref. 6204 was produced for a year or less, and even that same year a few other versions of the Replica Rolex Submariner were being produced or planned. In fact, for most of its early life, the Replica Rolex Submariner went through an intense series of not only evolutionary steps, but also design experimentation. This has led to an extremely rich area for collectors because so many versions existed early on in the model’s history.

Today the Rolex Replica Submariner is sized at 40mm wide, which is no larger than medium by most Replica Rolex GMT Master II watch standards. The original 1953 Replica Rolex Submariner was just 37mm wide. It was also water resistant to just 100 meters. Rolex quickly increased that to near 200 meters and today the Replica Rolex Submariner is known by everyone to be water resistant to 300 meters. As a dive watch, the original Replica Rolex Submariner has a rotating dive-style timing bezel as well as the iconic case shape that has more or less been represented by all the Replica Rolex Submariner models that came after it.

Aside from the very different dial text compared to most other Replica Rolex Submariner models, the most notable difference is the lack of “Mercedes Benz star” style hour hand. A key element of the Replica Rolex Submariner is the distinct hour hand, designed as such to look different than the minute hand for easy under-water reading. Rolex didn’t get to that until a bit later. The hour markers on the original Replica Rolex Submariner persist today, but Rolex experimented with various versions soon after the ref. 6204 was released. Another interesting design feature is the gold-toned hands and hour markers, which persisted on various Replica Rolex Submariner models through the 1950s.

Given that the Replica Rolex Submariner is such an iconic and popular Rolex replica watches today, it is interesting to see how it all started. The full history of the Replica Rolex Submariner, why Rolex produced it, how they marketed it, and the many versions that followed is the subject for several books. So we’ll end this article with that, and if you happen to find one of these ultra-rare Replica Rolex Submariner watches, consider yourself incredibly lucky.
