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.
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.
