True vintage replica watches for sale uk – which by definition are at least 20 years old – don’t have to cost a fortune. In fact it’s possible to get one on your wrist from a blue chip maker for little more (and often less) than the cost of a new piece from a less impressive brand.
In short: good hunting ground for your next big purchase. But before you dive in, remember that vintage obviously means old, and that means you might have to live with a few superficial scratches, maybe a faded dial and probably the likelihood of having to treat your pre-owned acquisition a little more gently than a super clone watch that’s come straight out of the box.
If you’re prepared for all that, check out these eight vintage fake watches online uk you could buy for £2,000 or less, as recommended by four leading auction house experts.
Fake TAG Heuer Carrera, 1997/8
“The Reference CS3110 was the original Carrera revival watch brought in during the late ’90s, more than 15 years after the model was dropped. Although the brand was officially called cheap fake TAG Heuer by then, the CS3110 only carries the Heuer logo to make it more authentic. Its sized at a vintage 36mm, fitted with a Plexiglass crystal and powered by a lovely, manual-wind LeMania movement. We sold one in our last Knightsbridge auction for £1,785 all-in – but, with the spotlight on the perfect replica TAG Heuer Carrera for this year’s 60th anniversary, prices may start to rise.” Jonathan Darracott, Bonhams London
Replica Omega Constellation
“People might be surprised to discover that it’s possible to buy a beautiful, reliable and wearable vintage 1:1 replica Omega for less than £1,000. The model I suggest is the Constellation, a watch that was introduced in 1952 and became a best-seller – meaning many examples were made. The aaa quality fake Omega UK powered by the Calibre 561 automatic movement with an instantaneous date mechanism and has a screw-down case back. We recently sold a gold-plated example in good, wearable, fully working condition for £806.” Steven Yambo, Fellows Birmingham
