Collectors, Rejoice! Ultra-Rare UK 1:1 Replica Patek Philippe and Roger Smith Watches Headline Two Big Auctions This Weekend

Get your bids ready. Beginning this Friday, June 9 with Sotheby’s Important Watches auction and continuing Saturday and Sunday with Phillips’ New York Watch Auction: EIGHT, it’s going to be a big weekend for collectors. Between the two sales, you can choose from a collective 270 luxury replica watches, including models from Omega, Zenith, Philippe Dufour and F.P. Journe.

Kicking off this exciting auction weekend is Sotheby’s sale, which commences in New York at 10 a.m. EDT. While the headliner is the ultra-rare “Pink-on-Pink” Ref. 1518 from perfect fake Patek Philippe, there are a couple other lots that are particularly notable.

The first is another pink gold offering from 1:1 replica Patek Philippe, a Ref. 5531R-010 World Time Minute Repeater, which is estimated to fetch between $1 million and $2 million. This 42mm watch is one of just 10 examples made in 2017 to commemorate The Art of Watches Grand Exhibition in New York, Patek’s 10-day retrospective. In honor of New York City, it features a miniature cloisonné enamel dial created by the artist Anita Porchet that depicts the Manhattan skyline. Among the 10 watches, there were two versions of the skyline—one in daytime and one in nighttime—and this particular lot is fitted with the “New York by Day” dial seen on just five of the produced examples. In addition, aaa quality fake Patek Philippe announced earlier this year that it would retire the production of the Ref. 5531R in favor of the Ref. 5531G, making this model even more collectible.

Another significant lot from Sotheby’s Important Watches auction is a cheap super clone Rolex Daytona Ref. 116519, Paul Newman’s last Daytona gifted to him by his wife, Joanne Woodward. This watch—offered alongside a Rolex Ref. 16520 “Zenith” Rolex Daytona replica for sale presented to Newman to mark his victory at the 1995 24 Hours of Daytona Race—is part of Sotheby’s “The World of Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman” series showcasing more than 300 individual items that the legendary actors’ assembled and enjoyed over the course of their 50-year marriage across dedicated live and online auctions throughout the month of June. Prior to this Friday’s sale, only two other Daytonas worn and owned by the Hollywood legend himself have been sold at auction, and both variations are expected to fetch up to $1 million.

“Paul Newman is a name in the world of horology that has withstood the test of time,” said Sotheby’s executive Leigh Safar. “Newman cemented his legacy with watch collectors through his influence on high quality replica Rolex’s most sought after model, the Daytona. As Rolex super clone online uk celebrates 60 years of the Daytona this year, we are proud to share in that milestone and present two models worn and owned by the Hollywood legend, which narrates the everlasting love he shared with his wife, Joanne, and his deep passion for racing. We are grateful to the Woodward Newman family for choosing Sotheby’s to present their parent’s collection to the world, with these copy watches standing as one of the most coveted and highly prized in the world.”
