With the year coming to a close, we’re doing some reflecting here at the vintage desk while also looking to an extremely compelling 2022. Over the past few weeks, the tension between interest in vintage and modern luxury replica watches has never been more palpable. Under this macro theme that is sure to play out over the coming months – if not beyond our upcoming year – here are four trends that the team and I are looking to in 2022 to better understand the vintage market. By no means is this a comprehensive list; many collectors are more interested in 1980s solid gold 1:1 Swiss Rolex fake watches.
If I will get comments below for anything here being “hype” or “cringe” it is sure to be the next few paragraphs. One, I welcome your thoughts and, two, there is no denying the grip that this chronograph from high quality Rolex replica watches holds on the minds of vintage enthusiasts. Love it or hate it, the best fake Rolex Daytona watches will continue to dominate a portion of the vintage world in 2022.
1973 Rolex Oyster Cosmograph ‘Daytona’ Sigma Dial Ref. 6265 with box and manuals
Manually wound UK wholesale replica Rolex Daytona watches have lined the auction catalogs of each major house for years. Vintage-focused Talking Watches episodes are no stranger to Paul Newmans, 6239s, 6263s, and all of the other nerdy perfect Rolex Daytona copy watches details you can think of. This is one of the most important watches in the world of vintage. That all being said, is a vintage Daytona a value play here at the end of 2021?
For his New York auction season round-up, Logan posed a similar question to the two Erics – Ku and Wind – and this pair of industry experts answered with strong opinions, as usual. Ku, the “super dealer” and founder of Loupe This, noted that the vintage Rolex market is “a little bit soft” but Wind, the proprietor of Wind Vintage and newly-minted podcaster, disagreed with the term soft, favoring “stable and still growing” while quick to point out that “there’s now an actual value proposition to buying a great steel vintage Swiss made Rolex Daytona replica watches for under $100,000, especially when modern Nautilus and Aquanauts are going so insane.”
I have to agree with the two Erics here. Of course, we are always looking for great vintage Rolex Daytona super clone watches for sale but over the past few months, the immediacy on the vintage desk has been much higher. We have to go and find exceptional Daytonas in this time where offering one poses great value to our end buyer. If you have been thinking about going after that “Big Red,” “Sigma,” or “Baby Blue” Daytona for years, now might be exactly the right time. Into 2022, the top replica Rolex Daytona watches market will serve as a decent marker for the greater vintage market’s health, just as it has for over a decade at this point.
