UK Swiss Made Replica Rolex Beta 21 ref. 5100
There were about a dozen companies involved in the BETA 21 development. The original Betas never went into production — if they had then they could have been the first-ever quartz replica wristwatches online uk.
The perfect replica Rolex Beta 21 was so different — it came at the end of the 1960s when other high-end manufacturers were going ultra-slim. The Beta 21 movement is huge — about an inch by three-quarters of an inch — so it was impossible to make a thin watch from it.
The unusual shapes were just part of their appeal, the other part is that in the 1960s, high quality fake watches were priced on the basis of accuracy, so the more expensive the watch, the more precise.
In the 1971 catalogue, the most expensive non-gem-set Swiss made replica Rolex was a Day-Date costing around £4,000.
The Beta 21 was £14,000.
So, the next generation was only going to be made in small quantities because, back then, few people bought hugely expensive aaa quality super clone watches.
We don’t know the exact number made, but it is estimated that there were about 1,000 pieces. They are numbered and I have never seen one higher than nine hundred and something.
It is also suggested that only about 40-50% have survived as during the 1980s and 1990s, when gold hit prices of $1,900 and nobody saw value in quartz, a lot of the Swiss movement fake watches were scrapped.
Out of the estimated 1,000 pieces, about 80% were in yellow gold with 20% in white gold, hence the white gold ones are worth three to four times more today — somewhere around £60,000 to £90,000.
