Anyone born in the ‘80s knows it was a decade famous for leg warmers, epic sci-fi blockbusters and droppin’ E’s (among other things). It was also a time of real change in the world of luxury replica watches ca. Innovation was rife, Gerald Genta was Gerald Genta-ing, and watches were hitting mainstream culture – which is why there are so many epic birth year fake watches online in the ’80s.
Birth year high quality fake watches are a great way of marking a birthday, and feeling doubly connected to a watch on your wrist, so we asked the experts to pick out their faves from every year in the ’80s.
1981: Fake Rolex GMT Master REF 16750
No decade goes by without Rolex being Rolex and doing something big. Between the ‘70s and ’80s, cheap replica Rolex CA was riding the high of this dual-coloured bezel, or what you might know as the Pepsi Rolex. Supposedly released at the beginning of the ’80s, (the history books are a little cloudy here), it remained in production until 1988. A fairly short stint for the life of a watch. So if you can get your hands on one, such as this 1981 model, you’re talking the good stuff. With a quickset date function and a hacking second hands feature, it meant that the watch could be set to the exact second. The Swiss made fake Rolex GMT-Master 16750 (I struggle to remember PIN codes so we suggest writing that one down) also featured sapphire crystal, as opposed to earlier acrylic crystals and a slightly larger case at 40mm.
1988: Replica Rolex Day-Date ‘Birch Burlwood’
Everyone loves an offbeat Rolex super clone for sale. And in true ‘80s eclectic spirit: the big boys delivered. Wood on a watch? C’est magnifique! The perfect replica Rolex Day Date has long been associated with the upper echelons (the ballers) of society, but the Birch Day Date really toyed with the idea of inspiring difference amongst such an enamoured model. “It reminds me of a great moment at Swiss made fake Rolex during the ’70s and the ’80s when stone dials and wood dials were like aliens in the catalogues,” notes watch enthusiast, Nicolas Amsellem. “Nowadays these dials are coming back but the emphasis is much more on stones than woods, tragically. As a bonus, these birch dials feel“kitsch” because the texture and colour was very close to the style of the great Jeep Grand Wagoneer from this period with its wood grain sticker on the doors.” In summary? “Bring back the Birch!” Save the trees and store them in your watch.
