The DayDate Rolex is one of the classic watches everybody knows about and desires to wear someday. Unfortunately for most people a Rolex watch is not something everybody can afford so most of us have to choose to wear a replica.
The Rolex DayDate is the watch that made Rolex famous. It was introduced in the 1956 and is known to be the first chronometer wristwatch that also had a day and date complication. This was a big deal back then and it improved Rolex sales greatly. But the mechanism wasn’t the only thing that made the DayDate desirable, it’s beautiful elegant and timeless design was what made most people buy it. Nowadays it is considered a classic and a rare pick among collectors. The newer collections don’t come in a simple selection anymore, you can now choose even from crazier colors such as green or blue. However, most people choose the classic colors for their watch, especially since it’s the type of watch you wear with your best suit.
But unfortunately to own one of these watches you would have to pay more than $20 000 and that is a price a few people can afford. This means that most of us will have to settle with a replica. Since the need for replica watches is so high some of the manufacturers take advantage of their clients by putting up replicas that are not at all similar with their original watches. Here we have the original watch along with a replica watch and they have been put side by side for comparison.
At the first glance we can see that the watches are pretty similar and there aren’t many differences between them. One of the first things we can observe is the fact that the hour and minute hands are black on the original watch but silver with a white design on the replica watch. The lens over the date is also a bit more rectangle on the replica watch while on the original it’s very round. Another thing that might be hard to observe is the fact that the font on the Daydate at the top is bolder than the one on the original watch.
These are small differences but some of you who are looking for a replica might want to buy something that is without exception the same as the original. However, if you are looking for a good replica this could be it as the differences aren’t that impressive and it could pass as an original watch for someone who is not well versed in watches.
