Andrea Parmegiani is a confident collector. As the 24-year-old son of Davide Parmegiani (one of the most respected watch dealers in the world), Andrea could get a pass for being shy, timid, and even overly deferential to his father’s decades of history in the watch business. And while he certainly speaks respectfully of and with the big collectors he works with on a daily basis, instead of being a clone of his father’s tastes, Andrea has worked alongside him – developing his own collecting style while sourcing rare best Rolex replica watches as a part of a small team at Monaco Legend Group where his father is co-chairman.
Certainly, the pair’s close relationship helped form Andrea Parmegiani’s view, but after following him for some time on social media, I grew to enjoy Parmegiani’s taste and collecting as distinctly his own. It’s a more youthful take on the Italian market of passion and deep knowledge, but it’s also often something gem-set, like the CA top fake Rolex ref. 1804 Day-Date watches in Platinum with a “Brooklyn Bridge” dial, diamond bezel, and diamond indices he was wearing when we first met in New York.
Replica Rolex GMT-Master II Ref. 116758 SA Watches
When I think of Parmegiani, I think of gem-set watches. And his love of them comes from a young age – maybe chalk it up to being a kid fascinated with shiny objects, but he quickly gained professional exposure to the cheap replica Rolex GMT-Master II SARU watches (with sapphires and rubies – and diamonds, of course) and its similar cousins.
“I remember the first day I went through the stock of watches my father had and I immediately was fascinated by all the SARUs,” he said. “He had all the metals – white gold, yellow gold – all the dial combinations – normal and full pavé – and all the stones, like the black stones, rubies, sapphires, and diamonds. Seeing all those, all the quality and variety and casework meant I fell in love with SARUs immediately.”
Part of that love was because he saw the gem-set high quality copy Rolex GMT watches as more subtle than the extravagant gem-covered pieces he had seen in the past (though he’ll wear those too). “It was more subtle,” he told me. “It was too good to be true.”
This variation, however, is particularly rare with full pavé dial, blue sapphire and diamond bezel, and diamond lugs but born without the more common diamond pavé center-link bracelet. And it almost got away from him – a part of the lesson his dad taught him: that you can’t keep things for yourself, with rare exceptions.
“I was begging my father not to sell any of the watches from the SARU collection,” he told me. “But surely, with time, he started selling – that’s just business. One went, then another went, then another went. There were maybe three or four Swiss movements Rolex replica watches left in the case, including this one, which I liked the most. As he prepared to bring it to a client, he checked the papers and saw my grandfather’s name. At that moment he realized that my grandfather, who worked in jewelry, had bought this watch directly from Rolex, brand new.”
It became clear this one watch had to stay in the family, and Andrea is now its caretaker.
Fake Rolex ‘Zenith’ Daytona Ref. 16559 SACO Watches
Keeping with the themes of chronographs, gems, and Rolex replica watches for sale, which ties a lot of this collection together, here’s the most recent purchase in Andrea Parmegiani’s collection. It also breaks the rules of Parmegiani being a strap guy, but can you blame him? Here we have an extremely – and I mean extremely – rare best quality fake Rolex Daytona ref. 16559 SACO watches. That means sapphire cognac (in Rolex speak), for the incredible sapphires set on the watch. Then there’s the peachy mother-of-pearl dial that shifts in the light. Think it’s too “extra”? Andrea gets that.
“I love how Rolex did the diamonds on the endlinks on these Daytonas,” said Parmegiani. “Some people think it’s too much. For me, it’s just all about always about how Rolex super clone watches wholesale are a reflection of my own taste and what I think of the watches themselves. I really don’t let myself get influenced by other people’s judgment. I really like to enjoy the things that I wear, and I enjoy this a lot. This is like a talisman for me. Wearing it makes me feel strong, confident, and like I am being true to myself.”
The watch has special emotional meaning that ties back into why he loves gem-set 1:1 replica Rolex watches in the first place.
“My grandfather worked with precious stones with jewelry, which probably formed my attraction really to precious stones – rubies, sapphires, emeralds, and diamonds. With the 18k white gold, I think it really adds contrast and allows these stones to come out, and I think of him when I see that.”
Let’s get back to the rarity one last time. There are only six AAA China fake Rolex Daytona watches that were made with the combination of cognac sapphires, diamonds, and cognac baguettes between the lugs, Parmegiani told me. But even more, when I showed a picture of this Rolex replica watches for men to a friend of the Parmegiani family, he remarked that there are only two known with the light mother-of-pearl dial seen here. As they say in the auction world, “find me another.”
