Continuing our exploration into the world of luxury replica watches, we now look to one area of the watch often gets overlooked — the caseback. While it is true that the majority of the value of a watch rests in the dial, and that the subtle changes throughout the years tell the history of the particular watch brand, solid caseback engravings hold more personal stories and celebrate the owners’ of the best replica watch.
A dying custom, led by the astronomical prices that 1:1 fake Rolex sports watches now command, caseback engravings are often reserved for those that can take the financial hit on their investment or those who never plan on selling their watch. Normally done to commemorate an event or achievement — like the recent Rolex watches Keanu Reeves gifted his team for the wrapping of John Wick 4 — auction houses are striking gold in the sale of personalized high quality replica watches owned by notable individuals. A few historic examples are the $2 million USD sale of Marlon Brando’s Rolex GMT-Master and John F. Kennedy’s infamous Rolex Day-Date (aka the Presidential) gifted from Marilyn Monroe.
