Rolex Daytona is one of the most famous and sought after watches in the universe. It is the ultimate racing watch, the timekeeping instrument that mixes fashion with functionality. With over 50 years of tradition and history, this watch is a true legend among legends. Its heritage can be outmatched only by its beauty and ability of breaking unthinkable records. No matter if you like dressy or sporty watches, the Daytona will appeal to the watch passionate in you.

The first Daytona series was launched at the beginning of the 60’s and it was produced until the late 80’s. Over the decades what first started as a race car watch turned into a true style statement. Now it is an extremely loved and appreciated timepiece that evokes luxury and sophistication. To date, the first series was the most famous and popular one that Rolex ever produced. These watches were printed with a unique four digits serial number that were extremely discussed and studied by watch collectors. In the early 90’s Rolex started producing a second Daytona series which is still being continued, but its popularity can’t outmatch the one of the original series.

GENUINE ROLEX DAYTONA

Genuine Rolex Daytona model 116509 with black dial and red hour hands

Rolex is known as the main sponsor for the Daytona endurance car race, a competition that was the inspiration for the watch’s name. At first, the watch was mainly worn by the drivers and fans that took part in the race, but as its fame continue to grow more and more watches aficionados opted for having a Rolex Daytona on their wrist regardless if they were racing fans or not.

Of course, its fame has not attracted only the attention of watches collectors, but also the one of replica manufacturers. This is how the Rolex Daytona became one of the most cloned timepieces in the world. A model that differentiates itself as a highly copied Daytona is the Rolex Daytona Cosmograph with black dial and red hands. This best seller is the number one choice for countless replica watches shoppers. The only thing is that not all knockoffs are of decent quality. Some of the fake timepieces out there are really bad and when you place an order online you should never take things for granted. Always spend a little time to evaluate the store and products, before submitting the purchase. This is what I usually do and it has always got me very good quality replicas. The last order I have received is a confirmation of my commitment to review all the important facts of an online purchase. I have bought and received a Rolex Daytona Replica that is simply stunning, but enough bragging. I will let this review say the rest.

The Dial

The dial of the Rolex Dayton is clean, but complex. Its amazing functionality is masked by an apparent simplicity, but believe me, there is nothing simple about this watch. This model, in particular, indulge our sight with a beautiful contrast between the smooth black dial and the vibrant red small dials, seconds markers and hands. As this watch was initially produced for car racing, the dial concentrates an outstanding utilitarian sense. The 3 and 9 o’clock counters count elapsed hours and minutes while the 6 o’clock one offers a precise reading of 1/8 seconds. These 3 combined allows drivers to accurately record their track times and tactics. The dial of my Rolex Daytona Cosmograph replica imitates the original one very nicely. When examining and comparing all the details I concluded that the color of the dial, the red details, the three small dials, the wording and fonts are identical to the ones available on the genuine timepiece. The only things different I have noticed are the white luminescent markers at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock. These are squared shaped on the real Daytona whereas on my replica these are slimmer and look more rectangular shaped.

The Case

Rolex is well-known for its amazing Oyster cases that seal the watch perfectly and protect it from any water and pressure damage up to depths of 100 meters. Its 904 L solid stainless steel case measures 40 mm in diameter and is manufactured rather as a monobloc middles case that is adorned with a screw down caseback and a screw-down winding crown with a triplock waterproofness system. Furthermore, the watch is equipped with a stainless steel monobloc bezel with engraved tachymetric scale that complements the dial gorgeously. There are no words to describe the superiority and perfection of the Daytona case design and performances. The truth is that my Rolex Daytona Cosmograph fake will never be as functional and high quality as the original one, but in terms of design it is really good. The case of my replica is manufactured from 440 solid stainless steel which is very similar to the 904L steel used by Rolex. And even if it is not made as a monoblock steel case, it manages to look very sturdy, elegant and beautiful. Including the bezel sports all the right engravings and markings, just as the winding crown has the little crown logo with three dots below it, meaning it is triple lock waterproofed. Of course, this knockoff isn’t waterproofed to 100 meters, but rather to 10-30 meters. The case back is also nicely made. The 440 solid stainless steel is covered by a green hologram sticker with a printed serial number.

The Movement

One of the most fascinating things about a Rolex watch is its inside mechanism and the Daytona enjoys one of the most outstanding movements on the market. The Cosmograph Daytona comes with a Rolex caliber 4130 which is a high end self winding mechanical chronograph movement exclusively designed and produced by Rolex. The movement’s reliability and performance is enhanced by the fact that this mechanism has fewer components than a regular chronograph. Just as all other Rolex Perpetual movements, caliber 4130 is COSC certified as a Swiss chronometer. The distinctive quality of this mechanism is the Paracharom hairspring that enabled a better resistance to temperature variations and shocks. Needless to say, my Rolex Daytona replica doesn’t have the fancy caliber 4130 movement. Instead, it is equipped with a high quality automatic movement without any “pedegree”. The second hand sweeps smoothly, it doesn’t make any ticking sounds, it keeps very accurate time and the power reserve is pretty decent.

The Bracelet

The bracelet of the original Rolex Daytona is manufactured from 904L stainless steel and it is known as the Oyster bracelet. Its design and robustness are famous. Rolex uses the highest technology for producing the band and clasp and this is reflected in the comfort, aesthetics and durability it provides. This style of band was first released in the 30’s and it can be described as a broad, flat three piece links bracelet. Equally, the folding Oysterlock safety clasp with an Easylink 5 mm comfort extension link impresses by being both elegant and functional. It is the perfect alchemy of design and utility. The first difference between the authentic Daytona and the fake watch is that the latter is manufactured from an inferior type of stainless steel. Even though it is very nicely polished, comfy, resistant and heavy, it is just a pale copy of the authentic bracelet. Also, the clasp looks the same, has all the correct markings and is easy to use.

The Functionality

I like my Rolex Daytona replica. It works very well. I am very impressed with the functionality. Not many replicas manage to be as good as this one. . Of course, the winding crown has to be first unscrewed so you can push it – just as the real one does. Also, the watch keeps proper time. If I don’t wear it for a few days and power reserve is depleted, a few shakes puts the movement back in motion. Really, I am very impressed with its functionality.

The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona with black dial and red hands is a beautiful watch that is famous for its high performance and stylish design so naturally everyone dreams of owning one. I saw my dream come true when I ordered a replica of it. Now, I’m enjoying this beautiful Rolex Daytona knockoff every second I can. It is a good Rolex imitation. It works very well and looks very authentic. I am, truly, very pleased with it.

The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona is the modern man’s first choice for style, performance and distinction. Since the first days of racing sports, Rolex has been the watch brand that sets the pace for timekeeping innovations and outstanding functionality. For almost a century its chronographs have complemented the wrists of champions and record-breakers, public figures that were proud to wear the iconic Daytona when they were facing a new challenge. Throughout time, this exceptional chronograph watch has been acknowledged as the perfect instrument for setting new records and achieving unimaginable things.

GENUINE WATCH

The origins of the Daytona name are quite interesting. Daytona is, actually, the name of a city in Florida where at the beginning of the last century was held one of the most prestigious races in NASCAR. This was called the Daytona 500 and it was hosted on the Daytona International Speedway. As Rolex had a great reputation as the best manufacturer of versatile and durable sports watches that featured an incredible Oyster case, more and more professional racers started wearing its watches while competing in the Daytona 500. Soon its fame caught up and everyone considered Rolex’s chronograph watch as an iconic racing watch and started calling it “the Daytona”. The brand didn’t miss the opportunity of this association and begun producing the model under the name “Cosmograph Daytona”. To strengthen this connection even more, every Daytona 500 winner was rewarded with a complementary Rolex Daytona.  One could say that the success of this watch was inevitable as it was constructed specifically as a driver’s watch with a perpetual self-winding mechanical chronograph movement and the rare ability to simultaneously work both as a stopwatch and as a timepiece.

One of my favorite Daytonas is the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona 116523, a stylish accessory that has been designed to indulge your wrist with the classiest instrument of deciphering time and sophistication. How could you resist the impulse of owning one? The model sports a luxurious jet black dial and a revolutionary Rolex’s chronometer rated automatic chronograph movement known as caliber 4130, it is waterproof to 10 meters and- last, but not least- it is fitted with a beautiful gold and steel Oyster bracelet. You simply can’t go wrong with this watch. It is everything you need to impress. Unquestionably, these are the numerous reasons why a couple of weeks ago I decided to buy a replica of the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona 116523 and I am pleased to say that I already have received and I very eager to share my impressions with you.

The Dial

This Daytona 116523 replica is an impressive timepiece that, just as the authentic watch, has a pretty intricate dial. Even though the color of the dial is black, the watch is anything but boring. The jet black dial is a classy choice that leaves room for numerous aesthetical additions such as the three gold color sub-dials: the central sweep hand allows an accurate reading of 1/8 seconds, whereas the other two counters display elapsed 30 minutes and 12 hours. These were designed so that drivers can accurately track times. Now that we have examined the functional part of the dial, let’s take a look at the aesthetics. To highlight the luxury factor of this incredibly popular racing watch, the dial has been decorated with 18 k yellow gold diamonds, Arabic numeral hour markers at 3 6 and 9 o’clock and yellow gold luminescent hands. Everything suggests class and sophistication. One glance at those 18 k yellow gold diamonds and you’re hypnotized. When we put the replica next to the original watch the dial seems to be pretty close, but there is one small thing that bothers me. The outside circle of the 3 small dials was supposed to be yellow gold color but for some reason on my knockoff it is silver. Even though, I don’t like this difference the truth is that it is only a minor one.

The Case

The key attribute of the Rolex Daytona is its uniquely durable 40 mm Oyster case that protects the core of the watch from external damages. Similarly, my Rolex replica is equipped with a sturdy 40 mm stainless steel case that features a triplock winding crown which screws down as to seal the watch tightly and hermetically. The final piece of the puzzle is the scratch resistant crystal that has a dual purpose- it accentuates the beauty of the Daytona replica by offering a clear view of the black dial and it closes the case perfectly as to provide maximum resistance under water.

The Bezel

The bezel looks very authentic as well. Just as the genuine Cosmograph Daytona bezel, the one on the replica doubles as a tachymeter, meaning, it measures elapsed time over a given distance. Combined with the chronograph function, you can use the bezel to measure speeds of up to 400km/h. I really think that the 18k yellow gold polished finished bezel accentuates the beautiful design of the watch.

The Movement

The authentic Rolex Daytona 116523 sports a fascinating caliber 4130 movement which has received the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute’s certification for high-precision. This self-winding mechanical chronograph movement was exclusively designed and produced by Rolex. Compared with a standard chronograph this mechanism has fewer components, thus improving the watch’s reliability. Another highlight of this Daytona model is the fact that it features a Parachrom hairspring which offers a better resistance to temperature variations and shocks. Of course, my replica doesn’t enjoy the same high quality caliber 4130 mechanism, the Parachrom hairspring and the other extraordinary technicalities. Mine comes with a very good automatic movement clone, one that keeps pretty accurate time and has the same functions as the real thing, but without the sophisticated and intricate internals. Still, it gets the job done and sometimes this is what matters the most.

The Bracelet

The Oyster bracelet of the Rolex Daytona replica delivers and impressive level of comfort, comparable to the one offered by the genuine watch. It is elegant and sturdy. The three-link Oyster bracelet is crafted from stainless steel and coated with 18 k yellow gold. It nicely wraps around the wrist as to provide that great feeling of luxury and refinement. No matter how much I studied the bracelet of my Daytona knockoff I couldn’t find any noticeable flaws. It really looks nice and durable.

The Functionality

The Daytona is an incredible watch with very useful chronograph functions. For instance, the upper and lower pushers screw down like the winding crown to ensure waterproofness. One press will start, stop or reset the chronograph. I was impressed to see that my Daytona 116523 replica works the same way. The small dials are correctly operated by the buttons thus allowing me to accurately count elapsed time.

Since the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona was first introduced in 1963 it has always met the demands of professional racing drivers. It is the super stylish and modern watch that helps you measure average speeds of up to 400 km/h with an amazing simplicity and accuracy, the timeless fashion icon that reunites the best of two worlds- motor sports and elegance-, the revolutionary instrument that offers the most innovative functions and, of course, the unquestionable symbol of luxury, power and wealth.

What we wear speaks to the world about our success in life so if we want to reflect greatness we need to have a watch that emphasizes classiness and superior performances. This being said, the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona 116523 Black Diamonds is the perfect pick for those who understand that a timepiece is not just an accessory, it is a social business card of an unimaginable value.

Rolex Daytona is a watch that does not need any introduction. To Rolex fans, it is undeniably the most loved watch, perhaps, matched only by the Submariner. The Daytona Cosmograph was such a great legend in automobile racing, that during the ’60s, the watch got the nickname “Daytona” after the famous Daytona International Speedway race. Nowadays, Rolex still is a very dedicated spon­sor of the most prestigious automobile races.

If you ask any true watch collector what is the most sought after and difficult to purchase watch, he will most certainly answer- the Daytona. The Rolex Daytona Cosmograph enjoys a status and cult-like following that no other timepiece has ever experienced. The different variations for the dial, case material and strap are numerous, but the most preferred ones are the stainless steel models with a simple white or black dial. I especially like the white dial Rolex Daytona all in silver. Rolex happens to make relatively few white dial watches and out of these few choices, I like best the looks of the white Daytona.

As you can see from the below pictures of this Rolex Daytona Cosmograph white dial replica, under the shiny sapphire crystal there is a beautiful white dial adorned with white gold hands and markers, designed to offer great legibility. The same luminescent coating is painted on the markers and hands to provide low-light visibility. The material used to make the replica is solid stainless steel and I particularly like the look of the polished bezel, case and center links of the bracelet which accentuate the elegance and refinement of this fake Daytona.  Even though the imitation watch has a highly polished finish, the tachymetric scale of the bezel keeps a reasonable legibility, also under bright light.

The 40 mm case and triplock crown complete the overall authentic look of the Rolex Daytona replica. I also like the fact that the chronograph buttons screw in to enhance its water resistance. The bracelet and clasp of the replica are particularly inter­esting as these are made just like the real ones. The links are full solid stainless steel and not hollow, also, these are connected by threaded screws not by pins. The deployant clasp is made from solid stainless steel and has a nice polished appearance.

The Rolex Daytona with white dial is an iconic timepiece, a real legend that throughout decades it has adorned the wrists of men with exceptional taste in watches. I now have my very own Rolex Daytona, even if it is just a replica. It looks very authentic and it keeps pretty good time. I love everything about it, from the crystal to the clasp and I simply cannot understand why I should spend a fortune on the original watch when I can get such a great replica for just a couple hundred bucks.

The Rolex Daytona was introduced in 1963 and it was a timepiece that aimed to fulfill the needs of professional racing drivers. This didn’t keep the watch from getting a lot of attention from those who weren’t professionals and soon it became one of the models well known from Rolex. The watch comes with a lot of features and a whole new and interesting design when compared to other watches in the same category.

Front View

Side View

The original series first appeared in 1963 and it contained a limited collection of watches. The series was reintroduced in the 80s too and since then it has become a cult classic. This raised its value among collectors and those who wanted to buy a watch they can pass on to generations and generations, especially since this watch had tradition and history behind it. Due to the fact that the watch is so popular and the fact that it looks extremely well done even to a person who isn’t a watch aficionado, there have been people creating replicas of this particular watch. The replicas, although they look the same, have a smaller price in comparison, which makes them available for those who cannot afford spending a fortune on a watch. Unfortunately, a lot of people are making cheap looking replicas that are sold as grade A replicas online and offline; this is detrimental to the buyers and those who are creating well-made replicas. Make sure that you always look at the details of a watch to see whether it is a high quality replica or not.

Here, for example, we have a Daytona 2 watch with great details and very high quality craftsmanship. We will analyze each of its sides and see how exactly it matches the original.

First, we can easily see how well polished the watch is and how beautiful it looks; this is a very important aspect because sometimes replica watches are a bit more matte and hardly shine as well as the originals. But this watch has been polished to perfection and even the lovely metal shade has been achieved making it, at least at first glance, very similar to the original.

The original watch is a heritage to the famous motor racing circuit in US, the Daytona circuit. We can see on the dial the name together with the three accurately crafted chronographs. On the side of the watch we can see the crown with the Rolex logo on it, just like on the original watch. Another interesting detail that can be seen is the writing on the inside of the bezel; this can only be seen if we look at the watch dial from one side and the fact that it’s there only makes this replica a high quality one; there are very few replica manufacturers out there who actually craft their replicas to such fine detail. The Rolex logo on the clasp is another reason why this is an exquisite replica watch and why it should be a great buy for anyone wanting a Rolex. It’s hard even for a person who is an expert in watches to realize that this is a replica and not the original watch.
