There is nothing that echoes fame, wealth and prestige as the name Rolex does. You don’t have to be an expert or a fan to know how great this brand is and how exceptional its watches are. High quality, revolutionary technology, and innovative design- these are the key factors of its continuous success. Over the decades, Rolex has produced some of the most iconic, versatile and functional watches in the history of modern horology. Every timepiece is a proof of its extraordinary sense of innovation.

GENUINE GMT MASTER

Authentic GMT Master Watch

The GMT Master II is one of its most emblematic designs. Created in the 1950s especially for Pan Am pilots the watch was intended as a superior instrument able to display the time in different time zones. Even though many variations and improvements have been brought to the original Oyster Perpetual GMT, the classic design and basic features are pretty much the same even nowadays.

To understand how ground breaking the GMT Master II was when it first came out, we need to mention the fact that it was one of the first timepieces that could tell time in two different time zones at once. Its uniqueness was that it didn’t have just a fourth hand that circled the dial in 24 hours, but also a rotating bezel with 24 hour markers that could be used for controlling the second time zone. And so Rolex created a masterpiece that was acclaimed and loved by all globetrotters, not just by air pilots.

24 hours GMT hand

To use the GMT function you need to: rotate the bezel until the marker points to 12 o’clock, set the GMT to the current Greenwich Mean Time, change the hour hands and set it to the current timezone. When you pull the winding crown in the second position and you rotate it, the minutes move with the GMT hand and when it is in the first position, the hours hand moves by itself. This way, the GMT hand will show the GMT reference time and by using the bezel, you can set the second time zone.

One of the Rolex GMT Master II models that are most sought after is the one with two-tone case and black dial. This version comes with a 40 mm case and is manufactured from 904L steel and 18 karats gold. The reason why it is so popular is, of course, the 18 k gold. Elegant and opulent, the gold and steel case combination is the detail that marks it as a glamorous and precious timepiece. Simply said, it is the right choice for making a bold statement wherever you go. This is why I had to buy one for my Rolex replica collection. A while back I ordered it online and I have been wearing it quite a lot lately so I decided to review it and share my impressions with you.

The case

The case of the authentic Rolex GMT Master II is built to last. Manufactured from superior quality materials such as extremely durable 904L stainless steel and 18 ct gold, this watch is by all means a very resistant and refined timepiece that suggests richness and elegance. Its 40 mm case is complemented by a highly functional 24 hour graduated bezel. This bezel is part of its complex second time zone feature. It is used to set the different time zone. To ensure perfect waterproofness up to 100 meter this flawless case is adorned with a scratch resistant sapphire crystal that has a beautiful shine over the iconic Rolex dial. By taking a very close look at the case of my replica watch I realized that it is very similar to the authentic one. The size, the shape and markings of the case, bezel and winding crown are the same. The only thing I would have to point out as being different is the gold on the watch. But this is perfectly understandable. No one will manufacture a replica watch from actual gold because it would be too expensive. My replica isn’t manufactured from solid 18 ct gold and stainless steel. It is all solid stainless steel with plated 18 ct gold on the golden parts.

The dial

The timeless personality of the Rolex GMT Master II is defined by its flawless dial. Even though many things about this model were changed over the years, the basic dial design remains the same. Distinctively, the black dial is a beautiful interpretation of the GMT Master II. The elegant matte dial with sophisticated white glow in the dark and 18 ct gold markers and hands make a stunning contrast with the green 24-hour hand.   And at 3 o’clock we have the classic date window with the 2.5 X magnifying lens. I have studied very hard the dial of my replica trying to find some differences between its design and the one of the original watch. I was able to find just two. Firstly, the minutes indexes and writing on the dial which were supposed to be white are gold color. Secondly, the Oyster Perpetual Date writing is a bit smaller on my replica. The rest appears to be the same.

The movement

The GMT Master II watch comes with a Caliber 3186 movement which is an automatic movement designed and manufactured entirely by Rolex. Certified as a Swiss Chronometer, this very reliable mechanism features a Perpetual Rotor for bidirectional self-winding and a Parachrom hairspring for better resistance to temperature variation and shocks. Besides these innovations, the Caliber 3186 movement also supports the 24-hour timezone and date function. The actual uniqueness of this movement is that it allows you to set the new timezone without interfering with your reference time. You got to admit, it is hard to beat the Rolex in house Caliber 3186. Not even the best replica could match it. But there are still some very good imitations out there that offer great time accuracy and the smooth GMT function. My replica is one of them. It is quite precise and it has a functional second time zone hand thus allowing you to keep track of the time in a different time zone.

The bracelet

The case of the Rolex GMT Master II is paired up with a beautiful three-link two tone bracelet with a folding Oysterlock easylink clasp. The actual bracelet is manufactured from 940L solid stainless steel and 18 ct gold. By using these two high quality materials the watch is considered one of the most expensive and refined Rolex models. Of course, the bracelet of my replica isn’t manufactured from the same materials. Instead, it is made from 316 full solid stainless steel plated with 18 ct gold where the actual gold should be. I am overall happy with the bracelet because it feels quite comfortable and authentic. It is sturdy and imposing on the wrist giving you the impression that it weights the same as the genuine one, plus it has a very nice shine and finishing.

With its contemporary and manly design, the Rolex GMT Master II is a magnet for the traveling enthusiast. Its versatility and functionality embodies sophistication and class so it is understandable why so many people want it and instead of spending a fortune on the original one they choose a good quality replica. This is what I did and overall I am very happy with my GMT Master II replica. It is a very well made imitation, except the font color issue, that looks and feels authentic, plus it keeps very good time.

Among the classic, fashionable and well balanced Rolex watches lies one very spectacular model, one that is definitely an eye catcher. This big, bold and outstanding timepiece is sophisticated as it is utilitarian. It is the professional time keeping instrument used by the skipper of a yacht. Rolex Yacht-Master II is its name and it comes with a unique and innovative programmable regatta countdown flyback chronograph developed and produced exclusively by Rolex.

Genuine Rolex

The first Rolex Yacht Master II was launched in 2007 and it was derived from the 1992’s Yacht Master which didn’t have the programmable countdown timer or any useful yachting function, as a matter of fact. But the new and improved Yacht Master II was a true professional yachting watch boosting a programmable countdown timer and a flyback chronograph, available in yellow and white gold. In 2013, Rolex unveiled the first version of the popular regatta-countdown chronograph watch in a 904L stainless steel case with a blue Cerachrom bezel insert. The model was a success both among yachting enthusiasts and watches collectors.

The distinctive feature of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master II is the regatta function offered exclusively by Rolex that allows its wearer to program the countdown timer from 1 to 10 minutes thanks to its incorporated mechanical memory that can be reset to the same countdown duration used previously. Another detail that makes the regatta such a useful yachting innovation is the fact that the countdown can be synchronized on the fly. You can adjust the countdown even after it started. This is a very helpful function for yacht skippers at the beginning of a yachting race. Actually, “regatta” is the name used for boat races so, obviously, the main purpose of the Yacht Master II is to be used during yachting races, to ensure a perfect start at the beginning of the competition.

I am surely not very fond of boats or boat races, to be more exact. But one thing is clear. I love a beautifully design watch that comes with an unusual complication. And the Rolex Yacht Master II is quite extraordinary. I especially like the stainless steel one due to its simple yet captivating contrasts. The immaculate white dial, vibrant blue dials, red accents and shiny silver case are magnificent. This is why buying a Rolex Yacht II in silver replica was one of the most rewarding things I ever did. I absolutely love this watch and you will soon discover why.

The case

The Rolex Yacht-Master II is a big watch. No one can deny this. Its 44 mm case makes it a very fickle watch. This huge Rolex isn’t for everyone. But once you get passed its big proportions you notice the beautiful Oyster case manufactured from a solid block of corrosion resistant 904L steel water resistant to 100 meters. The watch comes with the patented Triplock screw-down winding crown and a smooth integrated crown guard. The big, bright, bold bidirectional rotating bezel is one of the interesting details of the Yacht-Master II as it is the first watch to have the bezel directly connected to the movement. It is actually called a “Ring Command Bezel” and it is an essential part of the regatta chronograph. It lets you program the desired countdown duration. It is made from extra-hard corrosion resistant ceramic, it has engraved numerals and the inscription “Yacht-Master II” coated in platinum in the lower part of the bezel. As all Rolex watches, the Yacht-Master II comes with a scratch resistant sapphire crystal. Similarly, my Rolex replica has a 44 mm case crafted from solid stainless steel. It comes with the triple lock screw down crown, the same style of crown guard and the bidirectional blue ceramic bezel that features the correct font and size for the numbers and text. It even has a sapphire crystal. Everything looks and feels genuine.

The dial

This Rolex has a very unique design and the dial is a real attention grabber. It is without a doubt one of the most unconventional watches Rolex has ever produced. The matte white lacquer dial, the sharply contrasting deep blue hands, the Chromalight appliqued hour markers, the red seconds hand and the bright blue bezel are a magnificent combination of style and functionality. I like the fact that my replica has everything in the right place, in the correct size and font. The squared luminescent hour markers are correctly replicated, the central subdial has the right numbering and colors, and the wording on the dial is also exact. But I have noticed a couple of differences. First, the minutes and hours hands are not blue as on the original one and secondly the small seconds dial is silver and not bright blue, plus the numbers on it are different. These things are the main discrepancies I have noticed on my knockoff.

The movement

The Yacht Master II comes with a Caliber 4161 COSC certified self-winding movement that has a distinctive column-wheel chronograph. At the heart of the watch there is another exclusive Rolex innovation, an oscillator that has a blue hairspring made of Parachrom, a special alloy that is very resistant to magnetic fields, temperature variations and shocks. Of course, the biggest quality of this Rolex movement is that it supports the extremely complicated regatta function. Even though my watch is just a replica it still has a very good Japanese movement that is accurate and enhances a working subdial. Its functionality is not as intricate and spectacular as the original one, but come again I don’t really need a programmable countdown timer that will ensure the perfect start at the beginning of boat races. Oh, and let’s not forget that the original one costs over $18,000 and mine was only a couple hundreds.

The bracelet

The timepiece has a solid link Oyster bracelet crafted from solid stainless steel fitted with the exclusive Rolex Oyster safety clasp and the patented Easylink comfort extension system that allows you to make the band bigger by about 0.5 cm. The design of the Oyster bracelet reveals polished center links and satin finish outer links with polished edges. Similarly, my fake Rolex watch has a stainless steel bracelet with links that are shiny in the center and matte on the outer part, and, of course, the very useful extension. The bracelet feels very comfy and elegant on the wrist. It has a very authentic look and weight.

The Rolex Yacht Master II is a very technical watch with a very unique design. It is the kind of timepiece that demonstrates why Rolex is one of the best watches brands in the world. So, naturally, every watch passionate people or person with a fascination for beautiful things wants to have one. I am a huge fan of this design and I was looking for a good replica of this model for a while. My Yacht Master II knockoff is fairly good. It has a very good automatic movement, great functionality. It is manufactured from good quality materials, has the correct wording and sizes, but has a couple of differences that I was able to spot from the first moment. Being a very unusual and not very popular model, people are not so familiar with its design so coming across someone that can actually spot these differences is very unlikely.

A watch doesn’t have to be just a watch. A watch can be hypnotic. It can be classy, stunning and untamed at the same time. It has to have that “je ne sais quoi”, pardon my French, to be spectacular without even trying and, last but not least, to be everything you’ve expected and a bit more. Just like this Rolex Daytona reference 116508 with green dial and yellow gold case. It gives a totally new meaning to everlasting perfection. It is a whole package deal. Elegant, masterfully crafted, exceptionally accurate and eye catching, this wonderful timepiece is now mine and I can’t wait to share with you my thoughts on this great replica watch.

Authentic Daytona watch  model116508

Authentic Daytona 116508

Maybe for most people the word “replica” is a real turn off, but not for me. I have the perfect example that owning a replica watch can be as rewarding as having the original one just that you don’t have to break the bank to buy it. Take this Rolex Daytona, for instance, it has cost me only a couple hundred bucks and it looks amazing. Not only that, but I am also very impressed with its authentic design, perfect representation of the genuine markings and logos, exact sizes and weight. It is a terrific acquisition and I feel like it was definitely worth it.

Before we get to the actual part where I review my watch, let’s take a look at what the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona stands for. The Daytona debuted in 1963 as a professional racing watch. The best drivers were strong supporters of this model due to its amazing features. The highly legible bezel with a tachymetric scale and the flawless chronograph were the key elements that allowed drivers to measure average speeds up to 400km/h. The face of motor sports as we know it has changed due to the Rolex Daytona and soon this perennial watch became the icon for exceptional functionality.

As any other famous timepiece in the world, the Rolex Daytona has known an impressive pallet of variations and improvements- both cosmetically and technically. As it is one of the most representative chronograph sports watches on the planet, it is easy to understand why by now the brand has perfected and re-perfected everything about its functionality. The only thing that can be done to reinvent it is to bring small design chances. Sometimes, these are truly magnificent and send an echo throughout the watch world. In 2016, Rolex has launched its new Cosmograph reference 116508 during the Baselworld show. The watch is as stunning at it can be. It has a deep green metallic dial, a 18k yellow gold case and bracelet and an amazing charisma.

Green Daytona Replica Dial

The dial

With this model, Rolex went for a more attractive and distinctively handsome glossy deep green dial that evokes the brand’s official color. It is the perfect face for the company, the design that says it all. Rolex is all about pure perfection and it has always been. This hypnotic green dial is enhanced by red color accents in the “Daytona” name, hour markers and in the inner chronograph subdials rings. Another detail that augments its elegance is the use of 18 k yellow gold hands. But looks isn’t everything so this superb dial enjoys the legendary Daytona functionality as well. On the main dial we have the center hour, minute and seconds hands whereas on the small dials we have additional functions that improve its usability. The central sub-dial has the sweeping second hand that allows you to accurately read 1/8 second, the counter at 9 o’clock displays 12 hours and the one at 3 o’clock 30 minutes. Another strong asset of this watch is the highly legible Chromalight display with luminescent blue hour markers. This makes it so much easier to tell the time in the dark. Now take a look at the pictures of my rolex replica watch and at some of the authentic one and tell me what differences you can spot. I will tell you right from the start that it will be very difficult to find any. The fake watch is close to perfection. The only slight thing I could mention is that the hour markers from 3 and 9 o’clock are too neatly aligned with the 3 and 9 o’clock counters. But the difference is almost impossible to spot. It took me a while to see it.

The case

Even though the Daytona is one of Rolex’s oldest unchanged models, the brand has managed to keep its popularity high by focusing on precious metals and stones that boost its prestige and status. Well, I’m not a huge fan of gold or “blink blink” elements, but from now and then I’m swept off my feet by a gold watch that knows how to play its cards right. And this is just the case of my new Rolex Daytona  116508 replica watch. The original model comes with a 40 mm case manufactured from 18 ct yellow gold. This oyster monobloc case has a simple, but stylish screw down case back, a 18 ct yellow gold fixed bezel with an engraved tachymetric scale, a masterfully constructed winding crown with triplock triple waterproofness system and a scratch resistant sapphire crystal. Furthermore, the watch is water resistant up to 100 meters. The case of my replica watch is similar to this impressive Daytona only in some aspects. My knockoff has the same size. It measures 40 mm in diameter. The nicely built oyster case features a yellow gold fixed bezel that has been engraved with the tachymetric scale in the correct font. It has a beautifully simple brushed finished screw down case back and an easy to operate winding crown that features the correct markings on its end part. And, of course, the sapphire crystal that shines elegantly over the dial and has the small Rolex crown laser etched above the 6 o’clock position. All these similarities are impressive and surprising for a replica. The first main difference is the fact that my fake timepiece isn’t manufactured from 18 ct yellow gold which is very expensive, but from solid stainless steel triple wrapped with 18 ct yellow gold. And then the other thing that isn’t and couldn’t be the same is the water resistance. My imitation watch isn’t waterproofed up to 100 meters and I could never expect it to be. It is a nice clone and a very exact one, but it has its limits.

The movement

At the inside of this gorgeous Rolex Cosmograph Daytona there lays hidden a very sophisticated gem, the most important and extraordinary part of the watch, the in-house Rolex-made caliber 4130 automatic chronograph movement. This self-winding mechanical chronograph movement was exclusively designed and produced by Rolex. It operates at 4Hz, has a 2 days power reserve and 12-hour chronograph complication, but its architecture includes less components than a standard chronograph which means that the watch enjoys a superior reliability. Just like all the other Rolex Perpetual movements, this caliber 4130 one is a certified Swiss chronometer, features a Parachrom hairspring that provides maximum resistance to temperature variations and shocks and a bidirectional winding perpetual rotor. After all that has been said above I can’t expect anyone to think that my replica is as good as the original one in terms of automatic movement and functionality. I mean, I absolutely love this knockoff, but I got to be realistic. The 4130 caliber costs thousands dollars while my replica is just a couple hundreds. Still, my imitation Daytona is equipped with a 21 jewels Japanese automatic movement that works surprisingly well, keeps nice time and offers great value for its price.

The bracelet

Now, let’s take a look at the bracelet. Rolex is famous for its Oyster bracelet introduced in the late 1930s that is basically a very comfortable, narrowing three-link bracelet with brushed outer links and polished centers. It goes without saying, in 18 ct yellow gold it looks like a million bucks, but why should it cost a fortune? My Daytona replica has the same particularly comfortable and robust metal bracelet with broad flat three piece links manufactured from full solid stainless steel triple wrapped in 18 ct yellow gold. It feels authentic and sturdy, it looks genuine and classy, plus it comes with the iconic folding Oysterlock safety clasp with Easylink 5 mm comfort extension. What more could you ask from a replica?

The Rolex Daytona Cosmograph 116508 with green dial and yellow gold case is a rarity among its kind. Rolex doesn’t make that many yellow gold Daytona’s and the fact that it chose such a unique color for the dial reconfirms its importance. It is a key model within the collection, a watch you simply can’t miss out on.  If you are into bold, but classy timepieces then this green Daytona replica is the right one for you.

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 Daytona replica 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 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. As with all Japanese replica versions with chronograph, sub-dial don’t have same functions like on genuine watch.

Fake Rolex Daytona stainless steel and black dial

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.
