blue dial replica Rolex Oyster Perpetual and Rolex Datejust for sale online

The 41 mm replica Rolex Oyster Perpetual is a definite contender for “The Only Watch You’ll Ever Need” category. With its classic dark blue sunray dial, the intrinsic quality that resonates within any Rolex case is blatantly obvious in the Oyster Perpetual, even at this relatively accessible price point. Although whether the actual watch is accessible at your local AD may prove a different story …


But if you can’t get your hands on one or fancy something a little bit different, what are your alternatives that deliver the same qualities – namely that special combo of formality with everyday wearability not to mention a beguiling blue dial? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered …


As is my modus operandi, I try to come in with a cheeky twist at the end of the story, and what better than another blue dial Rolex? Why not try going down from a 41mm size, to a vintage 36mm copy Rolex Datejust, one of the three most classic models of the Crown. Yes, this is a vintage piece, but a decent 1980s model with a service history can be found for $6000 – $7000, with a sunray blue dial and that classic fluted bezel. There is a good reason this has been a grail for many through the long production run – its balance is frankly sublime.

It will most likely come on the beloved jubilee steel bracelet, with the whole ensemble feeling feathery light, slightly loose and super comfortable if you’re used to a more modern watch. When serviced this will keep great time (well, it is still a Rolex, mate), be less flashy, and even work brilliantly on a smooth brown Horween leather strap.
