Earlier this month, on this very website, we published a brilliantly persuasive story that said custom Swiss made replica watches are awesome and should no longer be taboo. Okay, fine, it was my story. And in the days that followed, I heard from many like-minded souls who would love a little more control over what they put on their wrists.
For all of you who agree – and also for those of you who still aren’t sure – I’d like to introduce you to Cooper Zelnick. He’s the founder of Cloister Watch Co., which is a tiny New York City studio devoted to restoring, refurbishing, and (yes!) reimagining vintage 1:1 online fake watches.

Zelnick is drawn to the oblong case and wide brushed bezel, which make the whole thing look like a silvery egg. If you can get past the general strangeness of it (or, even better, embrace the strangeness), it’s surprisingly versatile perfect copy watches. And it’s the inspiration for…

…this Calatrava, which has a custom matte-brown dial and the owner’s initials monogrammed above six o’clock. I tried it on myself, and of all the replica watches shop site Zelnick brought to set, this was the one I most wanted to walk away owning. I personally prefer the single stick markers to the double sticks on the 3580. The brown feels like it’s straight off some disco queen’s shag carpet. And that bracelet is just too cool.

When Zelnick found this almost a decade ago on eBay, it was in very rough shape and did not work. He’s got it running now, and he’s fascinated by the dial – which looks like a “mirror dial,” even though he’s pretty sure it was never meant to. The paint simply faded off. Zelnick thinks of this as high quality replica Rolex watches that’s gone past tropical (shall we call it subtropical?) and wound up somewhere far below the equator.

Look at three o’clock. Look again. The luxury Rolex super clone watches used to have a cyclops magnifier over a date window. Cloister polished off the cyclops, leaving the original crystal – and then added a stick marker where the date used to be. Seamless, no?
