Last night, Christie’s hosted its Rare Watches: Featuring The Kairos Collection Part I auction, which by the time the final hammer had fallen, saw no less than 16 world records fall. With 158 high quality super clone watches consigned to the Christie’s Geneva Spring Auction catalogue, the auction house achieved an eye-watering total sum of CHF23,840,700 (AU$34,448,023), which saw the average lot sell for more than CHF150,000 (AU$216,738).
While the catalogue included its fair share of white-hot wholesale replica watches, including a Cartier Crash, several Patek Philippe Nautilus references and 20 Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watches, there were also a fair number of weird and wonderful timepieces too. Despite the current international state of macroeconomic uncertainty, the best UK super clone watches market doesn’t appear to have been hit too hard yet, with some startling results that achieved many multiples of their upper estimate.
In that spirit, we wanted to highlight six results from Christie’s Geneva Spring Auction that speak to the ongoing hype of some fake watches for sale, and another four results that hopefully speak to a slow shift in what’s considered vogue. From the usual sports luxury super clone watches of Rolex, Patek Philippe and Audemars Piguet, to the emerging delights of non-Crash Cartier, MB&F and more, we’ve got something for everyone here.
Super Clone Rolex Daytona Ref. 6269 ‘Jack of Diamonds’ Watches – CHF 1,614,000 (Est. CHF 1.1m-2m)
While the vintage Daytona market might not enjoy the same strength as it had in the years following the sale of the Paul Newman Rolex Daytona copy watches online site, the appetite for rare examples with gem-setting remains ravenous. Produced around 1985 for the French market, this example features a diamond-set bezel, pave diamond-set dial and sapphires for hour markers, all cased in yellow gold. While it didn’t quite break its upper estimate, it attracted the highest price for any 1:1 cheap super clone watches in the auction.
Replica Cartier London Crash 1990 Watches – CHF 819,000 (Est. CHF 180k-280k)
The Swiss made super clone Cartier Crash is undoubtedly one of the hottest watches on the planet at the moment, with the likes of Kanye West and Tyler, The Creator catapulting its Dali-esque design into the collective consciousness in recent years. This example was originally sold in Cartier’s London boutique in 1990 and is the most desirable version of this emerging icon, with it believed around 20 were ever made. Despite the enthusiasm the perfect Cartier Crash fake watches is currently enjoying, Christie’s seems to have been a little bearish with their estimate, the upper limit of which was almost eclipsed three times over.
