Rolex Daytona Replica And Authentic – Mirror Image Or Not

12/20/2011 11:57

For the car enthusiasts, there is only one watch, the Rolex Daytona. This is a very popular model from Rolex because of what it stands for, perfection and precision for fast speeds. The name comes from the famous 24 hour endurance race that is now called Rolex 24 At Daytona due to sponsorship privileges. A quick history on this model will reveal that there are two series; the first one was created between the 60s and the 80s and every model used to have a four digit code. This made them extremely valuable because of the limited series produced and every collection needed to have one. Due to an increased demand for this watch, a new series was released with slight improvements and with a six digit code on every model. Although the watches from the first series had a pretty affordable price when they were created, they quickly became a small treasure and some collectors refer to one as the Holy Grail.

While the precision of a Rolex Daytona offers is impressive, it is all about the way it looks. Replica watches claim to offer the same overall look at just a portion of the original price and it might just seem too good to be true. There is no better way to see if this is actually real than getting the two watches and put them head to head.

At first sight, everything seems to be in order; the writing on the dial is accurate and so are the markings on the bezel. There is however a small difference in the secondary crowns, they have a slightly different design. Usually, there is a difference with the markings and this one is no exception; I am talking about the ones on the inside of the bracelet. The back cases of the two pictures is also different but the green hologram is actually quite common amongst replica watches.

So, the main difference between an authentic Rolex Daytona and its replica can’t really be seen while wearing it and it is just visible when you compare them up-close; chances are that most people don’t even notice them until they get an original and put them side by side.
