Rolex is not a brand that likes to celebrate anniversaries. 2013 marks the 50th anniversary of the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona collection, and Rolex did launch a new Daytona watch that year. Of course, it was also a completely unexpected watch. Of course, this is a completely unexpected watch, as it is very expensive and has reached collector’s level. The knock off Rolex Daytona 116506 has many innovations, such as the first use of platinum, a maroon ceramic bezel, and an ice blue dial.
Case And Bracelet
The Rolex Daytona 116506 copy watch has a medium size, a very comfortable 40mm. As the title says, this Rolex Cosmograph Daytona replica watch is made of platinum. In addition to the case, the oyster bracelet is also made of platinum. So, although this watch is not big in size, it weighs a lot more (286 grams) than a regular stainless steel watch. This weight is the sign of a quality platinum metal. But it doesn’t feel awkward or uncomfortable to wear. There is a polished center link in the Oyster bracelet that consists of three links. The Rolex safety clasp has an adjustable 5mm platinum extension. In addition, the bezel and the indices and hands inside the dial are made of platinum.
Closely associated with the Rolex Daytona watches is Paul Newman. Paul Newman wore a Daytona watch during his racing career and was given to him as a gift from his wife. Today, the Rolex Daytona Paul Newman watch is one of the hottest and most popular knock off watches at auction. Paul Newman was a famous actor and was no longer a young man when it came to motor racing. But we were all fascinated by his blue eyes.
For the Daytona’s 50th anniversary, instead of re-releasing a classic Paul Newman watch, Rolex is re-releasing a brand new Rolex Daytona 116506. The blue and brown dial is a tribute to Paul Newman’s eyes. The dial boasts chronograph counters at 3 and 9 o’clock, and a 60-second subdial at 6 o’clock. The longest hand in the dial is not the seconds hand but the tachymeter hand.
Maroon Ceramic Bezel
The brown color on the ceramic bezel is a new color. In Paul Newman’s younger days, it had thick, curly chestnut hair. Rolex first used the Cerachrom bezel on best Daytona replica watches in 2011. The two Everose watches released in 2011 were paired with a black ceramic bezel. The Rolex Daytona 116506 platinum watch released in 2013 also came with a ceramic bezel, but in maroon. This was also the first time that Rolex Daytona 1:1 replica watches used a maroon ceramic bezel. It wasn’t until 2016 that Rolex used a ceramic bezel on its stainless steel Daytona watches. This also meant that from that year onwards, Cerachrom bezel finally became a standard accessory on Daytona watches.
The knock off Rolex Cosmograph Daytona 116506 is driven by the in-house Rolex 4130 movement. This movement was introduced in the early 21st century. In order to increase the reliability of the NO.4130 movement, Rolex has increased the performance while reducing the number of parts inside the movement. These parts are specially made by Rolex. In order to prevent magnetic fields from affecting the accuracy of the watch, Rolex has installed a Parachrom hairspring inside the NO.4130 movement. Of course, the accuracy of this movement is not to be questioned, as it is COSC certified.
The combination of ice blue, brown and platinum is perfect. However, the Rolex Daytona 116506 made of expensive platinum is only available to a select few. If you want to experience this particular Rolex Cosmograph Daytona replica watch, buying a high quality replica watch from Hont Watches is a better option.
