It was an eventful Masters in Augusta, Georgia this past weekend. Tiger Woods made an improbable return to the game after a life-threatening accident, my friend Rory McIlroy (ok I interviewed him one time) caught fire on Sunday posting a record-tying round of 64, and Scottie Scheffler nearly went wire-to-wire en route to his first Major Championship. While Scheffler slipped on the green jacket for the first time and hoisted the trophy that looks like the Augusta National clubhouse, he wore on his wrist a recognizable two-tone 1:1 replica Rolex UK nicknamed after a certain soft drink.
That’s right, the long-driving, unflappable, Scheffler chose the steel and Everose gold AAA replica Rolex GMT-Master II ref. 126711CHNR – also known as the “Root Beer” GMT – as his celebratory watch. We’ve long said (I’ve long said) that two-tone is making a comeback. Well, there’s nothing like a 25-year-old, first-time champion choosing a bi-metal super clone watch to show proof of that fact.
An interesting tidbit worth mentioning here is that this is only Scheffler’s fourth win on the PGA Tour. His first was just this past February, meaning all of his victories occurred in the span of three months. In his previous trophy ceremonies, the now-number-one golfer in the world was bare-wristed.
It would appear that his meteoric rise has resulted in a luxury replica Rolex UK ambassadorship though there’s been no formal announcement, as of yet. What’s interesting is that, as an ambassador, he’s able to select the perfect fake Rolex watch he wants to wear. In the past, we’ve seen Jordan Spieth with a polar dial Explorer II and recent Masters champion Phil Mickelson with a Cellini clung tightly to his wrist. The point is, ambassadors to the Crown choose the high quality replica watches that speak to them. It would appear that two-tone speaks to Scheffler.
But it’s also just a killer watch, and inarguably one of the best executions of steel and gold made by any brand. I just wrote about Tudor’s new Root Beer GMT over the weekend and touched on how it takes much of its design from this very watch. Released in 2018, this particular Swiss made replica Rolex captures the essence of two-tone because it’s paired with a bi-color bezel in complimentary black and brown (hence the soda-centric nickname).
Now, this wasn’t the only Rolex fake for sale UK to make an appearance at the trophy ceremony. Augusta National Golf Club Chairman Fred Ridley wore a cheap copy Rolex Submariner ref. 116610LV, also known as the “Hulk” Submariner due to its green Cerachrom bezel and matching sunray green dial. And last year’s champ, Hideki Matsuyama, had a different – newer – green Submariner by way of the top fake Rolex GMT-Master II ref. 126610LV which has since been named (unfortunately) the “Starbucks” Submariner. Needless to say, both paired nicely with the iconic green jacket.
Congratulations, Scottie, on your first Masters win and on filling your two-tone Swiss movement replica Rolex GMT with a memory you’ll surely never forget.
