At the age of 12, when most boys are peering into the windows of candy shops, Patrick Getreide was pressing his nose against the glass of watch boutiques. Such is the danger of attending boarding school in a city like Geneva. Getreide passed by a particular store every day on his way to school and began to covet one of the AAA UK super clone watches, an Omega. “I looked in the window 50 times, and on the 51st time, I went in and announced that I wanted to buy the watch,” says Getreide. “Of course, I didn’t have the money. I had five francs per week for pocket money. But the guy liked me — he was impressed that a 12-year-old kid wanted to buy high quality replica watches — and he said, “It’s fine.” So, I was giving him five francs every week. It went on for weeks, and one day I called my father and I said, If I pay by five francs a week, it’s two years or more before I can own it, so my father paid out.”
Over the next four decades, Getreide went deep down the cheap super clone watches collector rabbit hole, and today, his 600-piece collection is one of the most valuable and historically important in the world. It is now on display at the British Design Museum, the first stop on a world tour that will include New York City. It is the first private Swiss made fake watches collection to exhibit in either a gallery or museum. With the help of his advisors, Getreide narrowed his treasures down to 168 representative samples in 11 categories, which collectively represent some of watchmaking’s most important milestones over the past 100 years.
Rolex Chronograph Super Clone Watches
The OAK collection exhibition traces the evolution of the best super clone Rolex Oyster chronograph watches from its early days, starting with a Ref. 4500, a two-subdial model from the 1940s, and progressing to the three-subdial Ref. 6034 and Reference 6036 triple-calendar models of the following decades. It includes many examples of the now-legendary (and almost impossible to get) top Rolex Cosmograph Daytona copy watches, first seen in 1963. Examples include several with Paul Newman dials, one of which was originally owned by NASA astronaut Walter Cunningham (above) and one of the rarest of all, a special model made for the Fuerza Aerea del Peru (FAP), a Peruvian military force created by the merger of the Peruvian army and navy.
The collection also includes the very first example sold of the platinum-cased Rolex Daytona super clone watches wholesale with ice-blue dial, launched in 2013. It was acquired by Getreide from a charity auction and remains in pristine, unworn condition.
Replica Rolex Sports Watches
Rolex has always been at the forefront of sports fake watches shop site, and it remains at the core of the brand’s production. The brand is unmatched for robustness, which explains why so many vintage models are so highly collectible — they age well and work through anything. Oyster Perpetual, meaning “waterproof,” with an automatic winding system — defines most series in the brand’s production in both the modern and historic sense. The OAK collection includes a representative historic sample that traces the development of the 1:1 super clone Rolex sports watches, including a 1973 Submariner Ref. 1680 Submariner Red, a steel diver’s watch with a Mark II dial (meters first, followed by chronometer rating). The 1680 is a “transitional” reference, in that was the first Submariner to feature a date complication magnified by the famous cyclops lens.
Rolex GMT-Master Super Clone Watches
The GMT-Master’s history began with Pan Am commissioning Rolex to develop a watch for its pilots in the 1940s and 1950s, to help them keep time in multiple zones. The GMT-Master back then was notable for its Bakelite bezel and fourth hand to calculate a second time-zone. The collection includes such China online replica Rolex GMT-Master watches notables as the “Pussy Galore” worn by the villain of that name in the 1964 James Bond film “Goldfinger” and a Ref. 17600 Pepsi bezel model worn by astronaut Chuck Yaeger.
