The last time Inter Milan (or Football Club Internazionale Milano or simply, Internazionale) found itself headed to the Champions League Final was way back in 2010. Thirteen years later and the team is back again – awaiting the winners of Manchester City and Real Madrid.
In the Final-clinching, 1-0 win against rival AC Milan yesterday, the team’s manager, Simone Inzaghi, was spotted on the sidelines with a crisp blue suit and an instantly recognizable steel perfect replica Rolex sports watch on his wrist.
That would be the cheap fake Rolex Yacht-Master ref. 16622 – a 40mm stainless steel watch introduced by luxury super clone Rolex in the late 1990s following the success of the original solid-gold model that debuted in 1992. The first Rolex Yacht-Master copy for sale was the aquatic-leisure take on the Submariner design form with raised numerals on the bezel, no lume pip for diving, and a decreased water resistance of only 100m (this of course does not include the “first” Daytona-flavored Cosmograph Yacht-Master seen on one John Goldberger’s wrist during his first Talking Watches appearance).
Key design elements of this Swiss movement replica Rolex UK include the tone-on-tone grey/steel aesthetic, platinum bezel, and the red seconds hand. This particular design was eventually phased out when a newer high end fake Rolex Yacht-Master with blue color complements was released.
This means that Inter Milan manager Inzaghi is either a neo-vintage watch lover or has had this best quality fake Rolex for many years. I’d like to think it’s the latter and that he chose a special watch to wear both as a good luck charm and a celebratory piece. And Inzaghi isn’t the first person in international football in the last couple of years to wear a Swiss copy Rolex Yacht-Master publicly. Lionel Messi chose the modern rose gold model when he signed with Paris St-Germain in 2021.
The Rolex Yacht-Master replica for sale has come a long way since the introduction of the solid gold ref. 16628 in the ’90s. We’ve watched it become something of a cult hit both on the vintage/pre-owned and modern markets. And just this year, Swiss made fake Rolex surprised us all when it released the all-titanium Yacht-Master 42 – a watch that at one time had only been known as an unreleased prototype worn by actual yachtsman Ben Ainslie.
Of course, this is all to say that the Yacht-Master is a more significant watch in the top quality replica Rolex lineup than we often give it credit for – and Inzaghi made his just a little bit more significant last night.
