Swiss fake Rolex increases watch prices in UK as gold rallies

AAA quality replica Rolex has raised the price of some of its gold watches in the UK following a surge in investor interest in the precious metal.

Meanwhile, the price of its Yellow Gold 1:1 fake Rolex GMT Master has increased from £34,000 to £35,400 according to Bloomberg data.

It comes after gold prices hit a record high this year, rising 14pc over the year so far. Investors have been buying into the precious metal in anticipation of expected cuts to interest rates in the US.

Gold is often seen as a stable investment that becomes more appealing to investors amid times of geopolitical and economic uncertainty, compared with interest-paying assets such as bonds.
