The original Rolex Daytona became an icon in the early 60’s when the first series was introduced. It was produced until the end of the 80’s and remains one of the most exclusive and expensive luxury lines ever created. Part of the excitement comes from the fact that each model had a unique four-digit code that made them the ideal collectibles, especially today. Although a second series was introduced in the early 1990s and is still produced, the first series remains iconic. Rolex is the main sponsor of the Daytona 24 Hours race and the watch was designed, from the beginning, to have the incredible precision that car enthusiasts are looking for. Over the years, the Daytona, as well as other Rolex replica watches, became popular due to the status symbol they represent.
Being such an important luxury icon, it is one of the most falsified models in the world and that means that there are many bad copies that do not deserve to be named. Of course, there are good imitations but, as a rule, they are difficult to find due to the abundance of cheap watches. To better understand the most common differences when purchasing a replica of a Rolex Daytona, we will make a small comparison between a good copy and the original watch.
What stands out from the outset from the outset is the quality of the steel. The authentic Rolex watches are made from a single block of high quality steel, which gives them a unique look and feel. Replica watches are not made exactly the same way and that can be noticed with a good eye.
A fairly common difference is the brooch. While not so obvious, the location of the Rolex crown is different and also the size of the clasp. The letters written on the inside of the brooch are also different.
The mistakes are quite small and most people would not even notice them, and this is how a good replica watch should look. The weight of the watch can be a good indicator of the quality of the steel used and is the reason why some stores include this detail in the descriptions. In general, it is a well made copy.
