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.
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.
