It’s hard to know where to start with a review of the most coveted watch of the year (and we suspect for many years to come). More specifically, it’s hard to be objective, to provide a meaningful review of a timepiece that has been so intensely speculated upon and scrutinised. For many people, the Daytona is the ideal, iconic watch design, and this new 116500LN replica Rolex watch is a near perfect blend of old and new.
The single biggest update on the new Rolex Daytona series fake watch is, of course the bezel. It simultaneously refreshes the watch while giving it a distinctly retro look – quite a feat. Rolex first introduced its proprietary ceramic material – Cerachrom – in 2005, gradually drip-releasing it across its professional range. The diamond polish finish combined with the properties of ceramic that make it virtually scratchproof and impervious to colour degradation, mean this watch will always look new, and super shiny – so don’t expect to see a ‘2016 Rolex Daytona ghost bezel’ appearing on Antiquorum auction listings in 40 years’ time. For most people this is a good thing, though I can’t help thinking that sidestepping the ravages of age might take a small part of the magic out of a watch. Oh, and the other change? The tachymetre numbers now follows the curve of the bezel, rather than having all the text on the same axis. It might just be me, but I think it looks cleaner this way.
The case, meanwhile, has remained the same – still at 40mm diameter Rolex replica watches UK, without the addition of maxi lugs or anything new-fangled. There must have been great pressure to mix things up, but I think keeping it unchanged is the smart play. It’s worth noting that the screw-down chronograph pushers are still in evidence, and while they’re an essential part of Daytona DNA (and blue-murder would be screamed if Rolex removed them) I find them a hassle to use in real life. But then again, who uses a chronograph with any regularity.
Aside from the bezel, this was the only other part of the Daytona to see some design tweaks. The 116500LN dial comes in black or white, and from what I’ve heard the fan favourite is the white. The most obvious dial change is the rings surrounding the subdial. The white dial now has a black ring around the chronograph totalisers, giving it a very vintage, almost panda dial look. Because of the novelty of the white dial, I suspect it will be the hotter property for the next few years, though the black is, as always, very sharp.
Different Rolex best fake watches UK models are more, or less popular, in different parts of the world. In the United States, the Rolex Cellini has certainly been among the least popular Rolex pieces because the US is primarily a sport watch or at least casual watch market. The Rolex Cellini is very distinctly a formal dress watch, that in the US has been mostly over-looked because our dress watch market is dominated by Rolex Datejust and Rolex Day/Date watches. Not to mention the fact that in the US it is completely acceptable to wear a Rolex Submariner with a suit. So where has Rolex taken this new Cellini family?
In a 39mm-wide precious metal case, the new Rolex Cellini is the tuxedo-to-the-office suite of Rolex watches. More formal that the Datejust, the Cellini has a thinner case and more traditional design that, for the first time, has style cues to the Oyster case. In fact, the Cellini has been an odd man out in the Rolex world for not having an Oyster case. That means it has 50 meters of water resistance, but in many ways is just as dedicated to long-term durability. Of course, the most notable “Oyster-like” style feature is the diminutive fluted bezel and caseback.
In other respects, this is very much the mainstream, slim, classic timepiece that Rolex has been missing. The most basic version is the Cellini Time, with just the time, but for me the most interesting versions are the Rolex Cellini Date fake watches and this Rolex Cellini Dual Time because they add elements that Rolex does not offer in other models. As is common on many Rolex watches the caseback of the Cellini is devoid of any text and in this case is rounded and polished in a classic form.
Those familiar with Rolex know that anything actually new, versus updated, with Rolex is a big deal. Not only does the Rolex Cellini have a new case, but it also offers the only dual time complication in the Rolex watch family. Arguably, this is similar to a GMT complication, but they are a little bit different as for many people a Dual Time watch is more convenient to read if you are merely interested in the time where you are and at home.
Earlier today we reported on the new Rolex Day-Date 40 replica watches UK release as soon as Rolex made the watch public, and now, we are following up with a hands-on with all versions of this new model. Having met Rolex today on the first day of Baselworld 2015 – which actually is a press day and not open to the public – not only could we see and photograph the new features on this latest release, but we also received detailed explanation about them. Let’s see, now, first-hand how the Rolex Day-Date 40 is new, and what it offers for those in the market for a dressier – albeit highly versatile – classic piece from the manufacture.
What wasn’t entirely clear at the time of the release but we now know for certain is that the Rolex Day-Date 40 does, in fact, replace the Rolex Day-Date II, tuning the “DD” down ever so slightly from 41 to 40 millimeters wide. Rolex actually refers to the Day-Date as its “most prestigious model,” and so it is no wonder the latest and arguably greatest Rolex machinal movement fake watchis making its debut in this updated collection as well. First things first, we will discuss the new looks and then go on to discover further details of the new Rolex 3255 caliber.
18k White gold Rolex Day Date replica watches, Everose gold, 950 platinum, and 18k yellow gold – those are the four new versions the Rolex Day-Date 40 is available in, and you can see them all above. There are, of course, several different versions depending on case material, dial pattern and indices, but we have seen all four metals – as the Rolex Day-Date 40 will exclusively be available in the aforementioned materials (no steel version) – so you can get a good idea of what to expect in terms of looks.
Rolex has debuted new dial options, where the patterns are created by laser etching a sunray finished dial, making for incredibly sharp and accurate lines – of different widths, depending on the model – running across the dials. The etching is subtle when it comes to depth; it is not like guilloché that results in deeper, more three-dimensional grooves on the dials. That is not at all to say the new Rolex dials lack depth, what you get instead is the mixture of the silvery, soft glow reflected by the fine sunray finishing, rendered more visually interesting by the laser etched lines which seem to stand out more or nearly completely disappear, depending on how the light falls on the dial. The overall experience is a dial that is beautiful to look at and is extremely versatile in its appearance – with the applied indices adding some extra volume and definition, also improving legibility.
