If you ask any serious watch connoisseur to name the most iconic and the most desired watch in the whole world, he will surely say “Daytona “- without any hesitation. No other watch has the same awareness and the same distinction as the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona. Launched in 1963 and produced in various versions ever since, it is the ultimate racer’s watch.
Still, regardless of its many design variations, the stainless steel models are particularly prized by collectors. I have to admit that I am also very fond of the stainless steel Daytona. My all-time favorite is the black dial. I just feel that no other watch can match the distinctive modern look of the Rolex Daytona II with black dial, black ceramic bezel and stainless steel case.
One thing is for sure: the world will never have enough Rolex watches. Each day, the company manufactures thousands of pieces and the demand continues to grow. Still, there are ten times more people who dream of owning one. Unfortunately, the price represents the reason why for many of us, it will most likely continue to be just an impossible dream. A Rolex watch is very expensive and not everyone can afford such jewelry.
Yes, the impossibility of buying a real product is what aliments the market of replica watches, and I must say that Rolex is one of the world’s most copied brands. This is actually good news for Rolex fans that can’t afford the original product as the more Rolex copies there are, the better the quality is. Manufacturing a large number of items of the same design or brand allows, in time, a sustainable improvement of the quality both in terms of design and inside movement.
You should also check the shine of the band. The bracelet is two tone. The silver surfaces are brushed while the gold ones are polished.
