I have been seeing a steady decline in the quality of several replicas, most notably replicas of watches with automatic chronograph movements. These include replicas of the Rolex Daytona, Omega Speedmaster and Breitling Navitimer. Just about every replica I see is utilizing a low quality mainland Chinese copy of the Valjoux 775X-series movement. These watches often have both running and functionality problems. They are often WILDLY inaccurate, sometimes running as much as 30 minutes per day fast. The chronograph functions often don’t work properly and frequently fail to reset to “zero” as they should.
My client sent this watch back to the seller, via insured Priority Mail. After weeks of emails, he was told that they couldn’t give him a refund because the watch had been opened, voiding the warranty. Of course they only knew this because my client told them that the watch had been inspected. He was able to get his money back from his credit card company, ONLY BECAUSE HE COULD PROVE HE RETURNED IT. This is a big “gotcha” with a lot of these online sales. If there’s no address to ship back to, and no proof of return, you will not get any help from your credit card company.
Rolex SA was founded in 1905 by the German Hans Wilsdorf and his brother-in-law, Alfred Davis. Contrary to popular belief, Hans Wilsdorf was neither Swiss, nor a watchmaker. Wilsdorf & Davis was the original name of what later became the Rolex Watch Company. They originally imported Hermann Aegler’s Swiss movements to England and placed them in quality cases made by Dennison and others. These early wristwatches were then sold to jewelers, who then put their own names on the dial. The earliest watches from the firm of Wilsdorf and Davis are usually marked “W&D” – inside the caseback only.
Rolex has also made a reputation in watches suitable for the extremes of deep-sea diving, aviation and mountain climbing. Early sports models included the Rolex submariner, Oyster Perpetual Sea Dweller 2000 (in 1971). This watch featured a helium release valve, co-invented with Swiss watchmaker Doxa, to release helium gas build-up during decompression. Another sports model is the Rolex GMT Master II, originally developed at the request of Pan Am Airways, to assist pilots in transcontinental flights. The Explorer and Explorer II were developed specifically for explorers who would navigate rough terrain – such as the world famous Everest Expeditions.
