Poor Raheem Sterling has endured a rough time of late. There was the familiar heartache of England being knocked out of the World Cup with Gareth Southgate’s team adopting their customary roles as plucky nearly-men destined to lose against the first decent team they face. If that wasn’t bad enough, while Sterling was in Qatar, armed robbers broke into his Surrey home and stole luxury replica watches reportedly worth £300,000 (about AU$545,000). The incident forced the player to make a temporary return from England duty, forcing him to miss the team’s victory over Senegal. But as Sterling recovers from this bitter double-whammy, hopefully he can console himself with a bit of retail therapy by replacing his lost high end fake watches once the insurance money finally comes through.
Just imagine yourself in this situation. If the bulk of your super clone watch collection suddenly disappeared overnight and you were given the money to replace it, would you opt for like-for-like replacements? Or would you take the opportunity to make considered upgrades on the contents of your watchbox, buying slightly improved variations on a theme?
There is no record of the exact watches that Sterling lost in the robbery. But photos show that the four-time Premier League winner is very much a die-hard Rolex man. The 27-year-old has, for example, been spotted wearing a stunning Everose 1:1 replica Rolex Day-Date 40 in rose-gold with an olive green dial bedecked with Roman numerals.
Another regular is the 27-year-old’s AAA quality fake Rolex GMT-Master II BLNR with the bi-colour bezel that’s earned it the Batman moniker. The Swiss movement replica Rolex Yacht-Master in 18k Everose gold is a further Rolex in common rotation on Sterling’s wrist.
