best Rolex Daytona replica watches

Most recently the company has launched the Series 2 and 3 Limited Edition Rolex Daytonas which will soon be followed by the launch of the Series 2 and 3 Limited Edition Submariners (apparently Series 1 is quite popular with Mr Bond himself Daniel Craig, although he’s supposed to be an replica Omega man, but that’s another story entirely!).Aesthetically and in suppleness and comfort, it resembles a rubber strap, while its resistance is comparable to that of a metal bracelet.
Highly reflective of current trends the Series 2 (pictured above) appears to be the more customized of the two editions, having received the full PVD treatment. This is understated, masculine luxury at its finest. Not being a Rolex man per se myself, I have to admit that I did not pay too much attention to the launch and so I thought it was time I take a closer look to find out what all the fuss is about. rolex-078848_06

Series 3 is somewhat a more subdued affair and non-enthusiasts may be forgiven for not realizing that this is a customized piece. Whilst it also looks quite cute with its monochrome design, brushed case finish, carbon coated bezel and white chronograph hand vaguely reminisce of the iconic ‘Paul Newman’ Rolex Daytonas of the 1970s, in my opinion you’re better of with Series 2. The photos don’t really do it justice but effectively what this means is that this particular Daytona started off life with a black dial but over the years it has faded to a nice rich brown color.
As far as customized rolex go these two are certainly quite nice. They have maintained enough of the timepiece’s original character that they are easily recognizable and the quality of the work is excellent.
Best of all though this replica Rolex Daytona Series comes with boxes, papers and pretty much everything else you could ask for! As you can see it is in excellent condition with no obvious marks or scratches. The original case and bracelet are also in excellent condition, particularly given the timepiece’s age, and if you turn the piece over you will discover the original, unblemished caseback with the word “Rolex” printed horizontally.
There are few watches that elicit more of an emotional response from collectors than a good quality Rolex Daytona. In a similar vein to Bamford & Sons, Projext X Designs offers both bespoke and limited edition cheap replica watches, with the latter being innovated in highly limited runs of just 24 watches which will not be repeated once sold out.

IWC

The classical iwc pilot’s chronograph replica watch

The steel, black-dialed chronograph is one of the most popular watch types. it’s a versatile, utilitarian classic and almost every brand has the understanding of the theme. iwc’s is their everlasting popular pilot’s chronograph, a mix of military style and casual elegance. it’s a classic in reality as well in name.IWCIWC
should you have focused on the iwc over the past several months, you’ll have noticed it’s on a few of an aviation kick, refreshing the whole pilot’s family and adding some tantalising novelties like the limited edition ‘le petit prince’ edition of the big pilot and the ingenious timezoner. since these are really so impressive, they’re not the bread and butter of iwc’s pilot’s line. that falls to fresh faces like the mark xviii, and updated stalwarts like this one, the pilot’s chronograph.
when you see the watch at the first glance, you could doubt if it is the same watch. but take another look carefully, and numerous small tweaks become apparently different.
the most obvious is the removal of the altimeter-style triple date window, which in turn allows for the iwc branding to be moved back to the three o’clock position. also gone are the printed arabic minutes at the outer edge of the indices. all minor changes, but they add up to a dial that’s slightly simpler and certainly closer to the watch’s historical origins.
the other changes concern the strap. for the leather version, the alligator strap has been replaced with santoni calfskin – a nod to the watch’s utilitarian roots that doesn’t detract from the premium offering of the pilot. the stainless steel bracelet – always one of the best quality offerings at the price-point – has also received a makeover and is exceptionally comfortable, owing to the deployant clasp with micro-adjustment, which allows you to make small adjustments on the wrist, simply by pressing the iwc logo.
these changes aren’t earth-shattering in their magnitude, but all add up to a replica watch that is a marked improvement in my mind. the design is cleaner, more balanced and more comfortable to wear.
