Some brands, such as replica Tudor and replica Rolex UK, not only have much more scholarship, but also a more straightforward approach. The manufacturer would in some instances indicate the reference number and metal before the distribution process, which seems to be consistent amongst brands that have a higher production volume.
As far as on a transactional level, Miami-based vintage dealer Adam Golden of Menta Watches shared some insights. “More often, the caseback sticker doesn’t do much for collectors other than being a nice bonus. While it can be a selling point, it is generally hard to quantify a premium.” When asked whether there were any recent instances that stood out, he cited a Swiss made super clone Rolex GMT-Master ref. 6542. “Other than this example, I’ve never seen a full cheap AAA Rolex replica caseback sticker in its true form on a 6542. It shows no signs of being chewed off or worn at all. This one came by way of South America, and when I saw it, it was clear no one had assembled it.”
In regard to modern AAA high-quality super clone Rolex watches, Golden concedes that the rules are a bit different. “The authorized dealers nowadays take the caseback, case profile, and bracelet stickers off on-site. These show that the watch is truly brand new. I have seen instances where modern Rolex super clone watches with stickers have increased the trading price, as well as desirability.”
But stickers aren’t always necessarily a good sign. When it comes to service stickers, his reaction tends to be one of concern. “What did they butcher today?!?!”, his anxious response to evidence of it being in the possession of AAA perfect super clone Rolex’s service centers. “I’d rather not see that. It’s not often a best fake Rolex can escape unscathed from that place.”
