Out of almost 200 watches presented at the auction, nearly two-thirds represented only five brands — Swiss made replica Rolex, Patek Philippe, F.P. Journe, Vacheron Constantin, and Omega. It was interesting to see the number and variety of Journe and Vacheron pieces being offered, whereas Audemars Piguet replica for sale UK was relatively subdued in this sale.
Fake Rolex Ref. 6239 (Lot 116), circa 1968 — CHF 1,724,000
And no, we didn’t forget Rolex. With the biggest selection on offer, most of the perfect Rolex fake watches fell within or around their respective estimates. The top-performing piece was one nicknamed “The Crazy Doc”, once owned by music legend Eric Clapton. This high quality replica Rolex is the only known yellow gold Ref. 6239 with a pulsometer scale.
The pulsometer was first introduced in the 1930s, when doctors would start the chronograph and use it to count the beats of a patient’s heart.

Copy Cartier Paralélogramme (Lot 252), circa 1960 — CHF 252,000
Fresh-to-market vintage 1:1 Cartier replica watches are already few and far between in the auction world. This extremely well-preserved Paralélogramme from the ’60s is even more exceptional. The parallelogram case and dial not only gave the watch its name but also inspired the highly celebrated AAA fake Cartier Asymétrique that we know and love today. This lesser-known but important ancestor bears hardly any sign of wear or age. It granted us a rare glimpse of its pure form and beauty in this sale.
