This week we have an array of vintage watches from a diverse set of brands. Two classic Replica Rolexes are complemented by a couple of brightly accented Zodiac and Heuer models, a really stunning Cartier Obus in yellow gold, and a Fake Tudor Submariner from 1984 with the rare “lollipop” hour hand. These watches will no doubt tempt collectors of any level, so read on for full details.
1961 Rolex Explorer Gilt Dial Ref. 1016 With Box
It would be difficult to ever get tired of this replica watch. It has everything you could want in a 1016, with a beautiful glossy gilt dial, the original bracelet, and perfectly even patina to the numerals, markers, and handset. It is simply a beautiful example of an iconic tool watch. You can read more about this watch here.
If you’re after something slightly more elevated and rare than the classic rectangular Tank, you have certainly found it in the Obus. This particular example in yellow gold exhibits the sharp square case and bullet-form lugs that define this idiosyncratic model, and the latter really add an elegant, but still subtle, sense of adornment.

1984 Tudor Submariner ‘Lollipop’ Reference 76100
This particular Tudor Submariner was produced only for a short time, but it left a lasting impression with its rare “lollipop” hour hand (notice it doesn’t have the little dividers in the round tip). The blue on the dial and bezel has faded slightly, but to gorgeous effect. Oh, and as something that looks equally great under the cuff of a dress shirt or paired with a t-shirt and jeans, it makes a fantastic gift. Birth year watch, anyone?

Wait, There’s More
In addition to these three watches, we have a broad selection of some other amazing timepieces, including a 1970s Zodiac chronograph, a 1940s Omega Chronomètre reference 2364, a 1960s Universal Genève Uni-Compax, a no-lume 1970 Rolex Datejust reference 1601, a 1970s Wittnauer Pro-Chronograph reference 7004A, and, last but not least, a 1970s Heuer Camaro reference 7220NT.
