Now Rolex has been favored by many watch lovers by the self-winding mechanical movement. During the period of the quartz crisis, Rolex launched several perfect fake watches with quartz movement.
In 1971, Rolex released the first quartz watch ref.5100. Since it is equipped with the huge calibre Beta21, the Rolex copy with gold bracelet features a 40 mm case. But Rolex wanted to develop their own quartz movement. Till 1977, Rolex finally launched the quartz movement which was called as Oyster Quartz.
Referring to Gérald Genta, you will think of the classic Patek Philippe Nautilus, Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, Omega Constellation and so on. However, few people know that he had ever designed a superior fake Rolex watch during 1960s to 1970s – Rolex King Midas.
The gold case copy Rolex King Midas is inspired by the ancient Greek art. It looks avant-garde and trendy even now. The inspiration is exactly the Parthenon temple. If you place the watch on the side, you will find the triangle is just like the roof of the temple.
While the highlight of this perfect imitation watch is the crown which looks like the sun over the temple. Unlike the luxurious bracelet and case, the dial has been designed to be very simple and concise.
