If you ask someone who don’t know much about antique watches whether the antique fake Rolex Ref.6062 good-looking or not, the answer must be no. Although the Ref.6062 “the Dark Star” has been favored very much by many watch collectors, many people will say that it is only an old and broken timepiece.
Created in 1950s, Ref.6062 was the first moon phase mass-produced automatic wristwatch which was waterproof. The gold case copy Rolex could also be considered as the most complicated model of the watch brand with the function of date display, day of week display, month display and moon phase indication. The movement was the one especially developed and manufactured for this model.
The auctioned antique imitation watch with brown leather strap perfectly explains a commonly seen phenomenon in antique watches industry. The watch looks new doesn’t mean it is a good antique watch yet. The case that looks like it’s been burned represents the oxidation over time. You can imagine that it been rarely worn and became to be like this somewhere in the world. It could be said that there will not be the other model that is same with this one.
