The history of the Rolex Daytona collection began in 1963. Today the Rolex Daytona is a chronograph with a worldwide reputation. We can’t imagine at all that Rolex Daytona super clone watches weren’t hot sellers in the first place. Today, the most popular watches on the market are the Rolex Daytona 116520 and 116500. Both are stainless steel watches, but the star of the show today is the Rolex Daytona 116500 with its ceramic bezel, the latest in a line of stainless steel Daytona watches.
The first Rolex Daytona watch was ref.6239, born in 1963. The watch was paired with the Valjoux 72 movement. This movement was very common and was used by many watch brands at the time. The turning point of the movement was in 1988. Rolex introduced the first self-winding Daytona, the ref. 16520. It housed the caliber NO.4030, based on the Zenith El Primero movement. In 2000, Rolex replaced the Daytona watches with an in-house manufactured movement, calibre NO.4130. The most popular Rolex Daytona 116520 is powered by this movement. The Rolex Daytona 116500 copy watch was born in 2016, replacing the ref. 116520.
Case And Bracelet
The 40mm diameter case is made of corrosion-resistant 904L steel. 904L steel has a higher shine than regular stainless steel and of course it costs more. No changes have been made to the 40mm case, the lugs have not gotten larger, and no new details have been added. The water resistance also remains at 100M. In fact, I think keeping the 40mm case was a very wise choice. The bracelet is also a 904L steel bracelet that matches the case.
Rolex Daytona 116500 With Black Cerachrom Bezel
The bezel of Rolex Daytona 1:1 replica watches has undergone a total of three changes. From the 1960s to the 1980s, Daytona watches were paired with either metal or acrylic bezels. From 1988 onwards, Rolex Daytona watches were fitted only with metal bezels, made of stainless steel or gold. It wasn’t until 2011 that the first Rolex Daytona watch with a Cerachrom ceramic bezel was created.
The first Daytona watch with a ceramic bezel was made by Everose, but ceramic bezels can now be found in more Rolex Daytona models. The Rolex Daytona 116500 was the first stainless steel version to feature a Cerachrom bezel, and it was one of the most anticipated versions. The new Cerachrom ceramic bezel is extremely scratch-resistant and will not fade with UV light. However, ceramic bezels can break from strong impacts and replacing a Cerachrom bezel is not cheap. The black ceramic bezel visually increases the diameter of the watch compared to the previous stainless steel bezel.
The tachymeter scale on the bezel has also undergone some changes. The small black dot below the numerals has been replaced by a triangle. The 60-100 scale is linked together. The Arabic numerals on the tachymeter now also rotate around the bezel and are no longer horizontally displayed the way they were In addition, the indices and numerals are filled with platinum. All in all, the different bezels give Daytona super clone watches a completely different look.
Aside from the bezel, the Rolex Daytona 116500 is not really very different from the previous 116520. The Rolex Daytona 116500 replica still has a white and black dial. According to the statistics, more people refine the white panda dial. However, the sub-dial ring within the dial has changed. The white dials are paired with matching 3 black rings. Conversely, the black dials are paired with 3 white rings. The contrasting colors of the dials look very vintage. According to statistics, more people refine the white panda dials. However, the sub-dial rings within the dial have changed. And they have become one of the hottest Rolex fake watches of all time.
While the Rolex Daytona 116500 is still using the caliber NO.4130, Rolex has replaced the movement with a blue Parachrom hairspring. So the movement inside the ref. 116500 watch does not change the numbering, but it provides more accurate time. This COSC-certified caliber NO.4130 is almost 20 years old and it is one of the best movements in its class. The NO.4130 caliber also has a better endurance than other Rolex calibers over this period of time, with a 72-hour power reserve value.
With its black ceramic bezel, the Rolex Daytona 116500 is more like a dress watch. The addition of the ceramic bezel also makes the Rolex Daytona Cosmograph replica watches more luxurious, but retains the vintage feel. The new look of the Rolex Daytona 116500 really stood out to me. But if you want to get closer to the history of the Rolex Daytona, the Rolex Daytona 116520 with a stainless steel bezel is a better choice.
