A Brief History of Rolex Tropical Dials
Just as with clothes and shoes, it's important that your replica Rolex fits well. It's too tight. It's uncomfortable. It looks like a child's watch. Being too loose not only makes the watch look sloppy but also makes it spin around your arms, making it easier to beat and stretch. If you need to get a perfect size but don't know how to size Rolex, read our handy guide for some useful tips.
Although we colloquially say that a person wears a fake watch on his wrist, this is not the case. The watch should be placed under the forearm, near the wrist. Whether you're wearing a metal bracelet or a Rolex leather strap, here's our take. Wearing a watch directly on your wrist can be uncomfortable for several reasons.
Firstly, the bone that protrudes on the pinkie side of the wrist will likely hurt if there's a heavy fake Rolex watch sitting on top of it for a long time. Besides, the winding crown will have a tendency to dig into your hand, finally causing blisters or scratching. Horrible!
Some Rolex replica watches come decorated with clasps that can be adjusted. For example, the modern Rolex Submariner, Deepsea, and Sea-Dweller watches are outfitted with the Glidelock adjustment system. If you look underneath the Glidelock clasp, you'll see that you can extend or contract the bracelet in 2mm increments without a tool. You just need to pop the adjustable side of the bracelet from the clasp and glide it back and forth along with the clasp until you find the size you need, then click the bracelet back into place. Submariner replica watches with the Glidelock system extend up to 20mm while the Deepsea and Sea-Dweller extend up to 26mm.
Some other fake Rolex watches, such as the Datejust, GMT-Master II, Daytona, and many others, come with an Easylink extension system for micro-adjustments. Using a similar method as above, you can just pop one side of the bracelet away from the clasp and extend it out for a larger fit or fold it inward and snap it back for a tighter fit.
If the fake Rolex still doesn't work with the built-in extension system, it may be necessary to remove a link or two from the bracelet. You can find a watch expert you trust to do this, or if you feel confident, you can do it at home with some tools. If you want to remove the link from the Rolex bracelet, remember that the clasp should be as centered as possible with the case, not off to one side, to maintain balance.
If you're going to remove the chain yourself, you'll need the right screwdriver, a soft cloth, a Rolex on top while you're working, and some paper towels. Use the screwdriver to carefully unscrew a pin holding two links together and pull out the pin. Then wipe the leftover Loctite residue on the pin with a paper towel and set it aside. Repeat the above steps and unscrew the pin on the other side of the link to be removed. To put the bracelet back together, apply a small amount of Loctite to the end of a pin, connect the two open links, pass the pin through the hole, and carefully rotate it back into place. Make sure to keep the remaining links and pins in a safe place in case you need to retool or sell your Rolex in the future.
