I am a huge fan of silver Rolex watches. You got to love its understated elegance and beauty! And one of my favorite silver color Rolex is the Daytona with the red seconds hand and the black and red sub-dials. I think that the thrilling red and black contrast over the calm silver dial is a very nice and interesting touch. It completely changes the looks of this classic watch.

If you are also an enthusiast of this gorgeous Rolex Daytona with silver dial and black and red small dials then I am pretty sure you need a reliable guideline for buying a good replica. Keep reading to see how you can turn a risky purchase into a satisfactory one just by paying attention at the details. Comparison is everything in this business and what better way to get an almost identical knockoff if not buy comparing every part of the original watch with the one of the fake?

Authentic White Daytona

I always take a good look at the dial. This is the more obvious part of the watch so it has to be very correctly imitated. The hour markers must be silvery with a very clean and simple look. And pay attention to the silver crown logo located at 12 o’clock. As you can see in the photo of the replica, the 5 peeks of the crown are too slim and the circular bottom hole is quite large. These 5 peeks should be fuller and the circular bottom hole should be smaller. Next, the minutes and hours hands should have a nice rounded top and not such a pointy one as the fake has. Usually replica manufacturers get the markings of the small tree dials right, but adding the correct outside and inside margins is a totally different thing. These should be very discrete, but the knockoff uses silver, thick circles which look very tacky and unaesthetic.

Rolex Daytona Imitation

Next, study the shine of the stainless steel. The original Rolex Daytona has a polished case and a bracelet with both brushed and polished links. These enhance its elegance. Unfortunately, replicas do not always clone this detail correctly. For example, in this photo we can clearly see that the imitation watch has an all brushed case and bad. There is no shine to the stainless steel and as a result of this; the whole knockoff looks dull and fake.

To make sure you end up buying a good quality Rolex Daytona replica watch, just follow the above example. It shows you all the important steps for making a correct and thorough comparison between the authentic watch and the fake one.

Sometimes, finding a good quality replica can be extremely difficult and challenging.  There are countless replica stores out there and each one offers a very large selection of replica watches, but from store to store the quality varies greatly. If only there would be a way to identify the reputable companies and more important: the high quality fake watches. Luckily for us, there is a way to protect our money from bad investments. If we first research the market, understand the particularities and important functions of the designer watch we love, and we make a thorough comparison between the original model and the replica we are considering buying then we have a high chance of purchasing an exact replica of superior quality.

genuine daytona for comparison

For instance, this Rolex Daytona with gold dial and two tone case and band can be quite tricky for replica manufacturers to correctly clone it. If you take a moment to examine the watch closely you will soon understand why. It has that beautiful champagne dial with matte surface that reflects the light so elegantly. Most replica watches fail in reproducing the exact same tone of champagne gold and its flawless texture. Usually on fakes, this type of dial will be either too shinny or too dull. It is very hard to get it right. The small three counters of this champagne dial Rolex Daytona are in the same color as the dial, but have a circular outlined surface. Also, on the outer margin each sub-dial has a slim polished ring and at the inside it has a black one. The markers are black and these display at the 3 o’clock counter: 10, 20 and 30 minutes, at 6 o’clock 20, 40 and 60 seconds and at 9 o’clock 3, 6, 9 and 12 hours. Most replicas will show the correct markers for these three dials, but will not have the inner black ring which separates the gradations from the plain center.

Daytona Knockoff

If you are considering buying this model then you should also pay attention to the hour markers. These should be identical to the original watch in all aspects. As you can see in the photos of the replica, one has diamonds markers just like the real watch while the other has luminescent dots. Also, the size is very important. The diamond markers should almost fit the space between the larger seconds indexes. They seem more spaced apart from the upper index.

You should also check the shine of the band. The bracelet is two tone. The silver surfaces are brushed while the gold ones are polished.

So you see when you’re informed and ready to invest your time and effort into comparing the replica watch with the genuine one, you are already on the right track of finding a very good quality replica watch that has a very authentic look, one that could fool even a trained eye.

The chronograph Daytona from Rolex has been created to celebrate fine watchmaking and as a way to make a watch that was created especially for professional car drivers and their fans. It allows drivers to measure the circuit they just elapse and calculate the distance and speed, so it can be extremely useful. Here we see the watch in a beautiful stainless steel version with red hands.

Genuine Rolex Daytona

This watch comes with 6 differences when compared to the original watch created by Rolex. The first difference that we noticed is the rim around the face of the watch. This rim is red for the replica watch while being white for the original brand watch. The numbers that show the hours seem to be also made with a different font in the replica watch, or appear a lot bulkier. Another interesting difference is the way the numbers are designed for each hour, but also the way that the hours seem to be complete inside the design in the replica watch, while in the original watch, the elements such as chronographs are placed on the hours’ number design. Another difference is given by the markings on the chronographs that seem to be different in the replica watch compared to the original brand; the replica watch chronographs have red gradations while the chronographs on the original brand keep the gradations white.

Daytona Replica Watch Errors

There seem to be different hands for hour, minutes and seconds on the replica watch too, as the hands are more elongated and the first two are completely made with white while the last is completely red. On the original watch the first hands, the hours and the minutes hands, are half white while the seconds hand is grey. Also, on the original watch, there seem to be red gradations in the rim that surrounds the face of the watch, which cannot be seen in the replica watch.
