In 1960s, Rolex decided that the name of its chronograph wristwatches will be changed to Cosmograph Daytona. At that time, the popular Rolex replica chronograph watch was equipped with calibre Valjoux 72 that Rolex purchased from Valjoux. In the later 10 years, Rolex didn’t changed anything of Daytona till the late 1970s. Rolex released Ref.6236 with an important function modified which was the waterproof chronograph pushers.
The chronograph timepieces in early days were only designed to ensure the safety of crown, while the pushers were only protected by with gaskets. Because of the disadvantages of such a structure, many models of Rolex had been damaged for the water entering into the interior of the case. The new white dial copy Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Ref.6263 was water resistant to a depth of 50 meters which was almost 6 times more than the old Ref.6263
Ref.6263 was the one and only model of Rolex that equipped different movements due to different case materials. The manual-winding knockoff watch with white gold case had been equipped with Valjoux chronometer movement, and “Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified” has been set under the position of 12 o’clock. However, the one made from steel was equipped with ordinary calibre Valjoux.
Les Artisans De Geneve is a company that was created in early 2016 with a mission of “recreating” existing and vintage watches. Initially distinguishing themselves from the customizers like Bamford, they chose to create pieces like their tribute to the Rolex Daytona 6263 replica watches UK which strayed from being too radical in how it was reimagined. Later in the year, came this watch, the Les Artisans De Geneve & Kravitz Design LK 01 Rolex Daytona. Partnering with Lenny Kravtiz’s design firm, Kravitz Design, Les Artisans De Geneve went all out in creating a brash and audacious black DLC and gold Daytona on a black military cuff strap. The mere inception of this concept is designed to generate love or hate opinions, but after spending time with this watch there is one undeniable fact – the product is meticulously done and objectively impressive in its execution.
The LK 01 is based on- the Rolex Daytona Ref. 116523. This is the two-tone steel and gold model introduced in 2000, but the two have little in common when you consider the before and after. Les Artisans De Geneve disassemble the watch and movement by hand and then begin their extensive process of modifying the piece. The case is treated with a black DLC and the bezel is replaced with one that is bakelite treated, done using a machine that dates back to the 1970s.
I really appreciate the use of bakelite for the bezel as it’s a novel and actually practical material. For those not familiar, bakelite is a temperature resistant plastic made of phenol and formaldehyde that is flexible to mold and durable once set. This is no ordinary plastic, and vintage bakelite items like jewelry, billiard balls, and chess sets (among many other items) are highly valuable and prized. And, of course, the Rolex GMT Ref. 6542 fake watches have a bakelite bezel and was sold for something around six-figures. Of course, part of the reason for this value may be due to the fact that the watch was discontinued when the decision to fill the numerals with radium was met with the unfortunate reality that bakelite could break, subjecting the wearer to the radium. In any case, in a world of ceramic bezels, I really enjoyed and appreciated the distinct aesthetic and feel of the bakelite bezel on the LK 01.
The black bezel has white tachymeter numerals and indices with a gold inner and outer ring. In addition to this, the chronograph pushers and crown are also done in gold which contrasts quite nicely with the black DLC case. It’s far from being an entirely original pairing of contrasting colors, but the exquisite quality and finish is clear as soon as the watch is handled.

There is no doubt that the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona is a venerable institution of modern luxury Rolex watches, even though the collection has been around since the 1960s. Since its birth, the Rolex Daytona watch has seen a range of versions and evolutions, but for the most part, it has been considered one of the most important chronograph sport watches of all time. This year at Baselworld 2016, Rolex once again introduced a few new versions of the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona including this handsome-looking reference 116508-0013 (116508 YG) 18k yellow gold version on a matching bracelet and with a handsome, deep green metallic dial. This is a new addition to the 116508 Daytona collection (yellow gold models), and I want to add that, ironically, the green dial color looks better in person than the slightly too-bright images Rolex has on their own website.
The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona cheap fake watch is a unique success story of wrist watch families for having so much popularity, even amongst a large range of versions, movements, and styles that were produced over the years. “Daytona” is a highly profitable name in Rolex watches when it comes to both new and vintage models. A market dud when it was originally released, the so-called “Paul Newman” Daytona collection earns top dollar by demanding collectors at prices almost utterly out of whack for what most enthusiasts would consider to be the sum of its parts and prestige.
In the 1990s, steel Rolex Daytona replica watches UK were all the rage – which Rolex reportedly produced in “insufficient” quantities given market demand. The result was both a waiting list as well as mark-ups for new steel Rolex Daytona models. Rolex managed to do it again this year in 2016, during a time when timepiece collectors lining up to purchase new watches at retail prices are arguably at an all-time low.
If you’ve read our Reference Points on the Rolex Replica Paul Newman Daytona Watches, you will understand that dial printing for the Daytona was a slow, evolutionary process. They began one way, then, when the name “Daytona” was assigned, developed from there. Then, when the “Oyster” case was provided to Rolex’s brand-name chronograph, they evolved yet again. And this all happened within a few years, so in many cases, you might see a dial that was born one way, with a single word being added later – such as those found in the incredibly early Oyster Paul Newmans called the “RCO” or “Oyster Sottos.” These terms, of course, indicate the word “Oyster” is added below the words “Rolex Cosmograph” as something of an afterthought.
The world of Cheap Fake Rolex Daytona Black Bezel Watches are filled with “missing-link” dials – those that feature some traits of a certain accepted dial type and others from another – and they very likely could be correct. There are double Swiss dials, double Swiss underline dials, and double T-Swiss-T dials, all within a very small range of serial numbers, for example.
Now all full-spec 6240s should have the MK1 bezel and MK0 brass pushers seen below – but the vast majority of 6240s have lost one or the other. To me, like I said with the early 6239’s, there is no point in buying a 6240 unless it features the traits that define it – so without the MK0 pushers, I would personally have little interest in a 6240.
I would venture to say that dial correctness for the 6240 is about as murky an area as one could possibly imagine, even in the often opaque world of vintage Limited Edition Rolex Fake Watches UK collecting – which brings us to the watch at hand; the 6240 “Solo.”
We’ve seen so far that dials can be born with and without different lines of text, in particular in the early 1960s Daytonas. The most minimal of all Daytona dials is what you see here – the so-called “Solo” dial. All you have on these dials is the word “Rolex.” Nothing else. The story goes – and the term “story” is used here in the literal sense because, as with any old Rolex, the firm will neither confirm nor deny the origins of these dials – that the very earliest 6240s could have been born with these dials. The market now accepts seeing these Solo dials on 6240s with serial numbers in the 1.2 to 1.4 range. They’ve been popping up from time to time for a few years, but few really paid attention to them.
