Sixteen Lots To fake watch At Tomorrow's Phillips 'Styled' Auction ADVERTISEMENT

It feels like just yesterday that I was sitting in a tent in front of Geneva's La Réserve hotel excitedly watching bids fly around for some of the year's more exciting watches. In reality it was almost a month ago, and that means it's time for the annual December auctions here in New York City. Things kick off tomorrow night at Phillips with "Styled," a special auction presented in partnership with classic menswear magazine The Rake and online retail powerhouse Mr. Porter. In reality, the sale itself is nothing out of the ordinary for Phillips ?there are a ton of very nice best replica watches from different eras, with a focus on the most desirable references ?but the marketing and presentation of the sale has focused on showing how these replica watches can be a part of a stylish life, hopefully drawing some new people into the auction room.

Ahead of the sale I had a chance to spend some time with the replica watches themselves, and I have to say there is a ton of diversity across the catalog and the usual attention to detail and quality hasn't flagged at all. It's always hard to pick favorites in a catalog like this ?and don't @ me if I missed your top pick ?but here are 16 replica watches that I think are definitely worth a closer look.

Patek Philippe Ref. 2526 Signed By Gübelin

I mean, did you really think I wasn't going to kick this off with a ref. 2526? This is without question my personal favorite Patek Philippe reference of all time ?it's automatic, waterproof, and about as perfectly balanced aesthetically as any man-made object can be. We've seen quite a few double-signed examples over the last year or two and they tend to bring in big money. This fake watch likely won't be a record setter, but it's in great honest condition, the case has taken on a really warm color, and the double-signed Gübelin dial looks to be in outstanding condition. If you want to learn more about this reference in general, check out Ben's in-depth story here.

This fake watch is Lot 64 and it carries an estimate of $20,000-40,000.

Rolex Paul Newman Daytona Awarded To The Winner Of The 1969 Daytona 500

Every auction season I tell myself I'm not going to call out any more Paul Newman Daytonas, but then replica watches like this surface. This Paul Newman is a 6239 in good, honest condition ?but that's not why I'm writing about it. What makes this piece so special is that it was given to driver LeeRoy Yarbrough for winning the 1969 running of the Daytona 500. It's not news that Daytona winners are gifted watches, but to think that one winner was gifted this fake watch is pretty crazy. The fake watch also comes with a letter from Replica Rolex USA that confirms its provenance.

This fake watch is Lot 13 and carries an estimate of $150,00-300,000.

Harry Winston Opus V

This one is too cool for me not to include it here. For over a decade (originally under the leadership of Mr. Max Büsser of MB&F), Harry Winston's Opus program provided a platform for independent watchmakers to try out experimental new ideas under the banner of a respected name. The fake watch we have here was created by Urwerk, as you could probably have guessed, and it's a total beast. You've got all that early Urwerk DNA, wrapped in a massive platinum case that, despite the watch's cool design, makes it a bit tough to wear. This is a fun piece of modern horological history, and one that you seldom see in the metal.

This fake watch is Lot 119 and carries an estimate of $60,000-100,000.

ADVERTISEMENT Rolex Ref. 6538 Big Crown Submariner

It's rare these days to find replica watches that are genuinely fresh-to-market, but when something like this pops up it feels like it was worth the wait. This Big Crown comes as a full package, with the fake watch itself having a thick case, nice bracelet, original bezel, and all the original hands, plus the box, guarantee, and chronometer certificate too. The condition is what stands out, with even patina throughout and no excessive polishing. One note: the scratches you see in the photo above are on the crystal, not the dial - in person the watch's condition really sings. It's hard to think of a cooler Replica Rolex sports fake watch to own than this big guy.

This fake watch is Lot 77 and carries an estimate of $300,000-600,000.

Patek Philippe Ref. 1589 In Platinum With Diamond Dial

This fake watch is...just flat-out awesome. What you're looking at is a possibly unique Patek Philippe with a 36mm platinum case and a creamy dial with diamond markers. Everything about this fake watch is superlative, from the color of the dial and sparkle of the diamonds to the extended lugs on the case, which have a ton of personality. I happen to think the above photo is pretty good, but this is a fake watch you truly have to see in the metal to appreciate. Only 43 examples of this reference are known to exist and most of those are yellow or rose gold (and without diamonds). Just so you know everything is kosher, the fake watch comes with a Patek Extract confirming the diamond dial as factory original.

This fake watch is Lot 59 and carries an estimate of $50,000-100,000

Vacheron Constantin Ref. 6782 Turnograph

What I love about this fake watch is how unexpected it is. You look at this from a distance and probably assume that it's a Replica Rolex Datejust ?but then you lean in and realize you're looking at a solid yellow gold Vacheron Constantin from 1970 instead. As you dig into the details you realize this is a Vacheron through and through too. The dial design is extremely streamlined and subtle, the bezel has fine decoration to it, and the movement inside has a solid gold rotor and the Geneva Seal too. The inclusion of the box and original guarantee put this one over the top.

This fake watch is Lot 87 and carries an estimate of $12,000-18,000.

Patek Philippe Ref. 5016R

There's tons of talk about how hard it is these days to get your hands on popular Patek references like the 5711A and 5164A. But what gets talked about way less is the other end of the Patek Philippe spectrum, where pieces are often available by application only or at the very least through a long term relationship with a top-tier retailer. The ref. 5016R is a perfect example of the latter, a mega fake watch that was nearly impossible to get, despite the fact that it was produced for 18 years (from 1993-2011). Only about 200 pieces were made during that time across four metals and with multiple dial options too. The piece here has a rose gold case paired with a silver dial, which is one of the more handsome and understated combos. The fake watch is a perpetual calendar with a retrograde date, a hidden tourbillon and a minute repeater. As you'd expect, the movement is pure insanity:

As a quick note, the consignor does not want the watch's full serial number public, so I have replaced the last three digits with zeros on the dial photos and blurred them out in the movement photos. This fake watch is Lot 7 and carries an estimate of $300,000-700,000.

ADVERTISEMENT Omega OT 2398 With Cloisonné Enamel Dial

While cloisonné enamel might not go with my personal style these days, it's hard to see these replica watches up close and not be wowed. That Omega saw fit in the 1940s to create luxurious dress replica watches with svelte automatic movements and so-called "Fantasy" dials with intricate floral enamel patterns is absolutely wild. My favorite thing about these pieces is how the enamel maintains a richness and glassiness even after 70 years and how that harmonizes with the worn-in gold case. I hope whoever buys this fake watch wears it and enjoys it ?it's a showstopper.

This fake watch is Lot 62 and carries an estimate of $30,000-50,000.

IWC Ref. 3705 Ceramic Fliegerchronograph

On its own the ref. 3705 is a fake watch worth owning: It was the very first ceramic chronograph in the word when it was released in 1994 and a fake watch that set the tone for much of what we'd see in terms of fake watch design over the ensuing decade or so. The example we have here, though, is special. Not only is it an extremely late ref. 3705, sold in 2001, but also it was purchased by Mr. Günter Blümlein (one of the modern fake watch industry's most important architects, and the man who saved IWC, Jaeger-LeCoultre, and others) for his wife. It's still fitted with the custom strap he had made for her wrist. This is one fake watch where you should totally disregard the estimate ?there's no chance this hammers for anywhere close to that.

This fake watch is Lot 71 and carries an estimate of $6,000-8,000.

Rolex Ref. 8171 "Padellone" In Yellow Gold

For a lot of collectors, the Padellone is as good as it gets when it comes to vintage Replica Rolex. These oversized triple calendar with moonphase replica watches are beautiful, fun to wear, and one of the more complicated replica watches Replica Rolex ever produced. People tend to freak out when rare steel examples pop up, but the example here in yellow gold definitely qualifies as exceptional due to the crisp case, which still shows all its hallmarks and original finishing, and the clean two-tone dial which is free from the blemishes often found on these pieces. This fake watch is fresh-to-market and I'd expect it will get considerable attention.

This fake watch is Lot 74 and carries an estimate of $220,000-360,000.

Patek Philippe Ref. 5396G

Not all Tiffany-signed Patek Philippe replica watches are equal. This fake watch is a limited edition annual calendar made exclusively for Tiffany & Co. to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the New York Patek Salon in 2012. Only 100 pieces were made, and with a black dial, applied Breguet numerals, luminous hands, and a white Tiffany stamp, it's basically collector catnip. If you want to learn a bit more about why this fake watch is so special, a certain John Mayer told us why he bought one for himself when the fake watch was first released.

This fake watch is Lot 19 and carries an estimate of $50,000-100,000.

Bulova Chronograph Given To President Eisenhower

Bulova is one of those brands that doesn't get enough credit these days, especially when it comes to their history. There is a long and storied connection between the American fake watch brand and countless important world figures, with a handful of American military figures in particular having deep ties. This little black-dialed chronograph was given to President Dwight D. Eisenhower (though exactly when is unclear) and since then it has had a few owners along the way. If you want something with real provenance but that shouldn't totally break that bank, this might be a good bet.

This fake watch is Lot 45 and carries an estimate of $10,000-15,000.

ADVERTISEMENT Early Patek Philippe Monopusher Chronograph

This fake watch comes from the pre-reference number days of Patek Philippe (1928 to be exact) and is one of only 27 known monopusher chronographs produced by the brand during that era. It has an officer style case in yellow gold and a beautiful dial with printed Breguet numerals and discrete sub-registers. Adding another layer of intrigue, the fake watch was sold in 1933, during the dark days of the Great Depression, so whoever bought it must have still be doing ok somehow. These almost never come up for sale, but this is actually the second one available in as many Phillips sales.

This fake watch is Lot 47 and carries an estimate of $300,000-500,000.

Vacheron Constantin Historiques Cornes de Vache 1955 For HODINKEE

Well, this one looks familiar. Last month in Geneva we saw the first HODINKEE limited edition fake watch hit the auction block in the Laurent Ferrier Traveller For HODINKEE, and it performed rather admirably. We only made 36 pieces of this take on Vacheron's beautiful, vintage-inspired chronograph, which pairs a steel case with a dark grey dial featuring a pulsation scale. Check out the original launch post for this fake watch to learn more, and you can bet we'll be watching to see how this does on Wednesday evening.

This fake watch is Lot 72 and carries an estimate of $20,000-30,000.

Movado Sub-Sea Chronograph

Sometimes, despite what we might like to think, the name on the dial makes all the difference. If the fake watch here said "Omega" or "Longines" on the dial, you'd be looking at something with a much higher estimate. However, the nice thing is that the fake watch is every bit as cool with the Movado signature and it will end up being much more affordable too. This 35mm waterproof chronograph has a sharp steel case, an absolutely incredible dial with a creamy patina and bright blue tachymeter scales, and luminous hands. The fake watch looks almost totally unworn, which is a bit of a shame considering how good it looks on the wrist.

This fake watch is Lot 90 and carries an estimate of $7,000-14,000.

Cartier Privée Paris Collection Tortue Monopusher

This is one of the true sleeper lots of the sale. I've never understood why these replica watches don't fetch more on the open market than they do, and I believe they're one of the best buys you can find if you want something with a bit of history and a bit of mechanical interest. On the outside you have quintessential Cartier design and inside you have a movement designed by Francois-Paul Journe, Denis Flageollet and Vianney Halter. It's tough to do much better than that. You can learn a bit more about this fake watch by checking out Talking replica watches With Ahmed Rahman, who shared his with us.

This fake watch is Lot 100 and carries an estimate of $8,000-14,000.

"Styled: Timeless replica watches & How To Wear Them" is taking place at Phillips in New York City (450 Park Avenue) at 6 PM ET tomorrow, December 5. You can view the full catalog here.
