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.
At Baselworld 2016 Rolex introduced a new version of its nautical watch, the Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master, for the first time in a combination of 904L steel and Everose gold, with a warm-toned chocolate dial Rolex replica watches UK.
Sporty but sleek, the new Yacht-Master 40 is strongly characterised by its bidirectional rotatable 60-minute graduated bezel in Everose gold with polished raised numerals and graduations which stand out clearly against a matt, sand-blasted background. This bezel is not just decorative and can be used, as an example, to calculate the sailing time between two buoys.
The use of gold and steel on the same watch has been a signature feature of Rolex since 1933, when the brand registered the Rolesor name for this combination of metals.
On the Yacht-Master, Everose gold is used for the bezel as well as for the centre bracelet links while the winding crown, the middle case and the outer bracelet links are made of 904L steel.
With its middle case crafted from a solid block of steel and the fluted case back hermetically screwed down with a special tool that allows only Rolex watchmakers to access the movement, the Rolex replica Yacht-Master 40 waterproof watches to a depth of 100 metres / 330 feet.
The winding crown is fitted with the Triplock triple waterproofness system and protected by a crown guard that is an integral part of the middle case.
The chocolate dial with sunray finish is enhanced by pink gold applied hour markers and hands which are treated with Chromalight for long-lasting luminescence in poor light conditions. The sapphire crystal features a Cyclops lens at 3 o’clock for easy reading of the date.
The Yacht-Master 40 is equipped with calibre 3135, a self-winding mechanical movement beating at 28,800 vph and offering 48 hours of power reserve. It features the patented blue Parachrom hairspring which is insensitive to magnetic fields. According to Rolex fake watches UK , this kind of hairspring hairspring offers great stability in the face of temperature variations and remains up to 10 times more precise than a traditional hairspring in case of shocks.
Only Rolex could steal the show at the world’s largest watch fair by introducing a new bracelet. But the Rolex Yacht-Master 116655 is more than a novelty bracelet replica Rolex watch UK– it’s perhaps Rolex’s sportiest watch yet.
Anyone who says they predicted new Rolex Yacht-Master series replica watchesat Baselworld 2015 is lying. No one saw this coming. It’s a completely left-field move for a company whose mantra is “evolution, not revolution”, and while the watch is an eminently contemporary update to the Yacht-Master line (the matte black bezel, the matte black dial), it’s the new Oysterflex bracelet that has stolen the show.
So, what’s it like? It’s a surprisingly sporty model – especially for a gold watch. Largely this is due to the strap, though the matte black Cerachrom bezel certainly helps.
What’s also surprising is just how stealth this watch is. A gold sports Rolex fake watch usually rates fairly high on the bling-o-meter, but I suspect the Everose Yacht-Master will fly under the radar, with only glints of gold from the indices to catch the eye. Matte bezel, matte bracelet and matte dial combine to create the blackest Rolex we’ve seen outside of the (cross yourself Rolex faithful) Bamford Watch Department.
The watch comes in two sizes: not the standard 35mm for the mini Yacht-Master but 37mm (with the new Syloxi equipped calibre 2236) and 40 (calibre 3135). Props to Rolex for resisting the urge to go with bigger case sizes. The other surprise about the watch is how vintage the dial looks: The gold Rolex logo, Chromalight filled applied gold indices and single line red text all combine to create a dial that takes inspiration from the coveted gilt dials and red line references in the world of vintage Rolex.
