Daytona is a very important series of Rolex. Most people buy Rolex Daytona watches not only because they are made of precious metals, but also due to their sporty style. Daytona is one of the best-sellng mechanical chronograph watches. Under its formal appearance, the design of Daytona never lacks sports elements, I think this is the main reason why there are a lot of people loving it. Daytona is a treasure model of Rolex, every jewelry elements used on this watch seems to be so natural. Let’s back to this replica Daytona watch first. Genuine watch has a reference of 116500LN, the replica is made by AR factory, there are two big selling points of the replica, one is its 904L stainless steel case, the other is the Asian 4130 movement, which is considered to be the most slim chronograph movement.
The case is made of 904L stainless steel, its diameter is 40mm and measured to be 13mm in thickness. Not only made of higher quality material, the case also has a top-level finish. The lugs and crown guards are polished, while other case parts are brushed, such case finish gives people a good visual effect. View the case from side, the lugs have a certain curvature, like they are naturally extended from the case. The back of each lug is engraved with secret symbols like genuine Rolex. Maybe each symbol has a special meaning, while I don’t know. The bezel insert uses real black ceramic and has silver Tachymeter markers that are in correct engraving depth.
On the black dial, there are three small dials. Small seconds hand is running on the subdial at 6 o’clock. Other two small dials at 3 and 9 o’clock have no functions, the two small hands are fixed. But the chronograph function is real, when you press down the button at 2 o’clock, the central seconds chronograph hand will start to work. Compared with Daytona replica watches from BP and Noob factory, the Daytona made by AR factory lacks funtions of 30-minute and 12-hour chronograph counter, it is a pity. But I think this is the only flaw of the replica. Silver hour markers, hour and minute hands are filled with luminous material, they will emit a strong blue light in the dark place.
Black rubber band is made of high quality rubber material imported from Thailand. Besides Panerai’s ASSO leather band, rubber strap is my favorite. Compared with stainless steel bracelet, rubber strap has a lot of advantages, such as waterproof, moisture proof, more durable, etc. If it is with a stainless steel bracelet, you will worry about being scratched. About the movement, it is an Asian clone 4130 that is based on a Chinese chronograph movement. AR watch masters spent a lot of time in developing this movement, although it has an extremely high stability, the movement still needs to be improved. The following are brief details of the replica to help you understand it better.
