In these images you can view every odd warmth, each finger print, every scrape, but the most interesting point to note is the nearly glossiness on the dial. They appear as if they’re almost enameled, or lacquered — they’re not, however, in such pictures, they look as though they would be.The dial layout is the one thing that I could see someone griping about to the new Daytona. Five. Do we need all that, in particular that the last lineup that reads “Cosmograph”? Surely not, but I find it charming that Rolex, after 53 years of creating this watch, still calls it a Cosmograph, even though I’m quite sure nobody outside several dweebs like me know exactly what that means. This is a Daytona to many folks, and they simply may leave it at that, however they don’t, which I enjoy a lot. Nevertheless, text hefty at 12? Certainly. Oh, and naturally we’ve “Daytona” in red at 6 o’clock, which I know people will love, although I do not.The new Cerachrom black bezel with platinum PVD treatment is amazing and rich looking, shiny and elegant. As collectors favor the 6263 with black aluminum bezel to the 6265 with polished steel bezel, I guess too that over time these black bezel watches will probably outsell their metal bezel predecessors.As for the build quality of this watch, and also the superb quality 4130, read this story about “The K Series Rolex Daytona Replica Way,” in particular the last section about the chronograph movement. It will tell you everything that you will need to know.
We’re here at Baselworld 2013 and Rolex Daytona Ticking Replica has shown off a couple of new model iterations including a platinum Rolex Daytona and this black and blue colored Rolex GMT-Master II. Essentially just a new color variation of the current Rolex GMT-Master II range, this new version employs a two color cerachrom bezel insert (a first for Rolex) in a day/night arrangement of blue and black.
Still sized to 40mm and powered by the Rolex Daytona Vs Submariner Replica Calibre 3186, this new model is little more than an additional color choice for buyers looking for some of that classic Pam Am panache. Rolex announcements are a big deal at the BaselWorld and crowds formed quickly when the new models were displayed outside of Rolex’s booth. Onlookers seemed to have mixed feelings about the mostly-cosmetic updates and the lack of a specific 50th anniversary piece for the legendary Rolex Daytona.
Alongside the black and blue Rolex Daytona 455b Price Replica GMT-Master II is a new blue and brown platinum Rolex Daytona. This is not the Rolex Daytona that many were expecting. Also still 40mm, this new version features a case and bracelet made of 950 platinum along with a light blue dial and brown cerachrom bezel. New colors and metals aside, the platinum Rolex Daytona (ref 116505) is powered by the Calibre 4130 COSC automatic chronograph movement with 72 hours of power reserve. This new version comes on the year of the Rolex Daytona’s 50th birthday and while the color combo is interesting, many were expecting a brand new model with an updated case size. While it is totally possible that Rolex is still planning to celebrate the Rolex Daytona’s 50th with an official model, it doesn’t look as though Basel will be the host for that announcement. Now that Rolex is the official sponsor for Formula One, they may have a more race-focused and Rolex Daytona-appropriate stage for such news, only time will tell. For now, it is safe to say that while the new platinum 2013 Dayonta may prove to be a successful model, many BaselWorld attendees were expecting something completely different.
While the new variations of both the Rolex Daytona and the Rolex GMT-Master II are undoubtedly cool pieces, neither are brand new models, nor do they differ greatly from the current formula for each model range. I rather like the blue and black Rolex GMT-Master II and think that it is a nice addition the Rolex GMT-Master II family. What do you think of these new versions? Maybe Rolex has something else up its sleeve. rolex.com
