2021 Vintage Rolex Tiffany Dials Datejust
Tiffany stamped Rolex watches are some of the most sought-after and collectible products in the vintage watch segment. They constitute a prized segment in the already booming market for vintage Rolex replica watches and offer the brand recognition of Tiffany & Co. and Rolex.
The fact that Rolex Tiffany dials are no longer being produced following their discontinuation in the early 1990s means that there are now a limited number of examples to choose from. And the number of these watches is dwindling as collectors snap them up. The double-signed dial adds another sense of rarity and distinction to an already sought-after model, and Rolex collectors prefer models that have a little flair to make them stand out.
It is not uncommon for a Rolex replica watch with a Tiffany dial to sell for twice or three times the price of a comparable model with a standard dial. Moreover, if the watch happens to be accompanied by the original Tiffany & Co. documents from the time of its original purchase, it is almost guaranteed to increase its resale value and collector’s value even further.
In August 2020, Christie’s sold a Tiffany dial fake Rolex Submariner ref. 1680 for $43,750, which is of a vintage Submariner 1680 with a standard dial. In November 2018, Phillips sold an Explorer II ref. 16570 with a Tiffany dial for over $32,000, and in December 2020, Sotheby’s sold a steel GMT-Master 1675 with a black bezel and stamped Tiffany dial for $44,100.
For vintage Rolex collectors, the Tiffany dial represents a bygone era in the company’s history. Rolex now prides itself on a fully autonomous production process and a strict level of quality control. Co-branded dials, not to mention the highly inconsistent dial printing process that occurred during the Tiffany & Co. partnership, are not tolerated by today’s Rolex – which is exactly why collectors will pay a premium for them.
