Daytona has been one of the most popular replica watches in our market since Noob published the first super clone Daytona with 4130 movement several years ago. Now, Noob has been closed for two years, Daytona is still very hot, many factories have joined the production of Daytona replicas, Clean and EW are the first two, then 3K also shown their interest and started to make Daytona, but they used another name in this field, that’s BT, which is also named “Better Factory”. Why did 3K join the competition of Daytona? Because the market share is large and it has not been completely occupied by Clean factory, there is also a big profit, so I think these are the two main reasons. 3K factory’s flagship product should be Nautilus 5711, now it is hard to buy a Nautilus watch from 3K because they put all their energy into the production of Daytona, I don’t think this is a correct strategy, well, I shouldn’t worry about this, these people who can make such a large amount of replica watches must have a lot of money.
BT factory now has a large collection of Daytona, including models in stainless steel, yellow gold and rose gold. Now for super clone Daytona, BT factory has te most choices, but I can not say it is the best choice, because that will depend on the model you are buying, for some stainless steel Daytona, like Panda 116500, I still recommend Clean factory’s version. But for the best golden Daytona or yellow gold Daytona, the best one must be from BT. TW factory also makes golden Daytona, but their Daytona can not be called super clone, the Daytona from TW is middle quality because the movement inside is Asia 7750 and the case is much thicker than the genuine.
The Daytona is a two tone model from BT, the golden part on the watch is in yellow gold, both case and bracelet are made with 904L stainless steel, the case has a diameter of 40mm and is measured to be 12.2mm in thickness, not that accurate, some are 12.3mm or even 12.5mm, people said that this is normal and even not every genuine watch has the same case thickness. The yellow gold coating on the case and bracelet has a considerable thickness, but how thick the gold layer is? I am not sure. For such a golden watch, you may worry about the gold fading, but I have to tell you that the gold won’t fade easily, some clients want to pay extra to add gold thickness, I think this is unnecessary. If you have that money, why not buy a genuine Valjoux 7750 movement to replace, you know, increasing the gold thickness will need a lot of money.
The dial is also in gold tone. Three subdials are real, they have the same functions as genuine watch. Hour markers, hour hand and minute hand are applied with luminous material, they have a blue lume light in dark conditions. The dial is an exact 1:1 clone of the original, but if you take a genuine watch in hand and compare, you will also find the difference on the replica, so, like I said before, every replica watch can not be made to be perfect, on the dial, the font of the printings, hands’ length, the thickness of the small circles, if you care too much about these details, I think no replica watches can satisfy you.
The movement inside is a super clone 4130, which is the same movement used by Noob Daytona before, actually BT found the movement factory that supplied this 4130 movement for Noob before, this is the best clone 4130 movement that is closest to real Rolex 4130 Calibre. I think there will be no clone 4130 better than this one for a long time.
