Why You Should (Not) Buy A Watch From Your Birth Year — Is That UK Swiss Made Replica Rolex Really The One You Want?
I’m pretty sure many of us either thought about buying or actually bought a watch from our birth year. I know I have at least thought about it. But it never happened. When I was looking for one back in the late ’90s, I could have bought a 1968 Swiss made fake Rolex Submariner 5513 Meters First, but I didn’t like it that much. Stupid? With current knowledge, absolutely. But they were different times back then, kids. I didn’t like it enough to wear it, and that was that. Recently, though, we had a talk here at HQ about why you should (not) buy a watch from your birth year. For instance, ask yourself: is that perfect replica Rolex UK really the one you want? I will share some views and ideas with you. But I’m also curious how you feel about birth year watches for yourself or your kids. And what about birthday copy watches?
Mechanical replica watches for sale UK are all about emotion. I get that. I feel that too. But when it comes to “birth-year watches” it seems I’m more rational than emotional. When I played with the idea of finding myself a nice watch from my birth year in the ’90s, I came across a 1968 cheap fake Rolex Submariner 5513 Meters First in a now-gone Amsterdam watch shop.
Please be aware that back in those days, the market was completely different than it is today. Steel Rolex sport copy watches online were not scarce at all, and vintage was still called “second-hand.” To be honest, “second-hand” doesn’t really have a pleasant ring to it. Neither does “pre-owned,” for that matter. And because I approached the Rolex Submariner replica online UK as a second-hand watch, it felt like it. The bracelet rattled, and the scratches hurt my eyes. As a watch novice, I wanted my watches to be spotless. And that’s why I bought a new Explorer II 16570 “Polar Express” (with a persuasive discount, FYI).
Is that top Swiss fake Rolex really the one you want?
Final question: will I ever buy a watch from my birth year? Well, if I ever get serious about a luxury replica Rolex Day-Date Ref. 1803 “Wide Boy,” that would be cool to find one from 1968. But if there’s a watch from 1969 that looks better, it’s a done deal — I’ll go for the younger one. And you know what? If I then wear it a lot and it becomes part of me, my son – now fully awake watch-wise – will notice the bond between dad and his AAA quality fake watches, and on one glorious day – I’m guessing October 8th, 2045 – I will take the “Wide Boy” from my wrist and put it on his. How about that?
