Rolex replica watches launched Daytona for the first time in 1963, and 6239 is the first Daytona in Rolex history. Produced from 1963 to 1969. Daytona’s English DAYTONA appeared on the watch dial for the first time.

Rolex Daytona 6239, with a size of 37 mm, the biggest appearance feature is that the watch uses a stainless steel bezel, and there is no lock handle on the timing button, just an ordinary button. At the same time, under the crown of the watch dial, only the words ROLEX COSMOGRAPH are written. In addition to the ordinary style dial, Daytona 6239 has a “Paul Newman” dial. That is, the small chronograph uses square scales, and the hour markers and chronograph scales are located on the outer ring of the dial, which is usually a Daytona with black and white contrasting color dials (there are also gold dials, etc.). It was named after the actor Paul Newman wore it.

The Rolex Daytona 6239 is a manual chronograph that uses the Valjoux 72 series manual chronograph movement. This chronograph movement was purchased by Rolex Luxury replica watches from the Valjoux movement factory (the Valjoux movement factory was later acquired by ETA). It is a cylindrical wheel, horizontal clutch, and manual winding chronograph movement.

Daytona 6263, Rolex’s first “Oyster” Daytona.Luxury replica watches

Daytona 6263 is the next-generation follow-up model of the previous 6239. The Rolex Daytona 6263 was produced from 1971 to 1987. The appearance of 6263 is generally the same as that of 6239, but the configuration has been upgraded.

Rolex Daytona 6263, with a size of 37 mm, the biggest change in appearance is that the watch uses a black acrylic bezel, and the chronograph button has a screw-in lock handle. Since the chronograph button has a screw-in lock handle, it has a complete oyster case configuration, so a line of oyster OYSTER English is added under the crown of the dial. Similarly, in addition to the regular dial, the Rolex Daytona 6263 also includes the “Paul Newman” dial style. Due to the timing button screwed into the lock, the value of the complete Oyster configuration, 6263, is often higher than that of 6239.

Rolex Daytona 6263 is still a manual chronograph, using the Valjoux 72 series manual chronograph movement. But specifically for Valjoux 727, Valjoux 727 increases the swing frequency from 18,000 times/hour of Valjoux 72 to 21,600 times/hour.

Daytona 16520, Rolex’s first “automatic” Daytona.

Rolex Daytona 16520 is the follow-up model of 6263. The watch has undergone tremendous changes from the inside to the outside. The previous Daytonas are all manually wound, and 16520 is Rolex’s first self-winding Daytona. 16520 was produced from 1988 to 1999.

Rolex Daytona 16520, size 40mm. 16520 has established the style of today’s Daytona from size to appearance, and it has been used until today. Another major change of Daytona 16520 is the movement. 16520 uses the EL PRIMERO automatic chronograph movement from Zenith. Rolex reduced the swing frequency of the EL PRIMERO movement from 36,000 times/hour to 28,800 times/hour, and renumbered it as Rolex 4030 automatic chronograph movement. The reason why Rolex chose the Zenith movement was because of the impact of the quartz crisis in the 1970s, a large number of watch factories and movement factories closed down. At that time, among the high-end watch factories, only Zenith could quickly resume mass production and provide Rolex with high-quality self-winding chronograph movements, so EL PRIMERO was selected by Rolex.

One of the distinguishing features of the appearance of Rolex Daytona 16520 is that due to the use of Zenith EL PRIMERO, the small second hand of 16520 is at 9 o’clock, which is different from the position of Daytona that uses Rolex’s self-produced movement (the self-produced movement is at 6 o’clock), you can recognize Daytona 16520 at a glance.

Daytona 116520, Rolex’s first “self-produced movement” Daytona.

Rolex Daytona 116520 is the follow-up model of 16520. The most significant change of Daytona 116520 is that this watch is the first watch in the history of Rolex replica watches to use the “self-produced automatic chronograph movement”. The Daytona 116520 was produced from 2000 to 2015.

You read that right, Rolex replica watches did not launch the first self-produced automatic chronograph movement, the 4130 movement, until 2000. As mentioned above, before the 4130 movement, the movements of Rolex Daytona were all outsourced. The 4130 automatic chronograph movement uses a cylindrical wheel, vertical clutch combination, 72-hour power, and outstanding overall quality. It is one of the benchmarks of contemporary automatic chronograph movements. The 4130 automatic chronograph movement has been used since its launch in 2000 until today.

From the appearance of the watch, Daytona 116520 has the same overall appearance as the previous generation 16520. It is still 40 mm, with a stainless steel bezel and fine-tuned details. However, due to the replacement of the 4130 movement, the layout of the watch panel has changed,

and the position of the small second hand is at 6 o’clock on the panel. This is the identifying feature of the 4130 movement Daytona.

Rolex Daytona 116500 is the follow-up model of 116520, and it is also the model currently on the market. The biggest change of Daytona 116500 is that it is equipped with a ceramic bezel. 116500 has been produced since 2016.

Rolex best fake watches is very cautious about the use of new materials. In 2011, 116515 with a rose gold case was a Daytona with a ceramic bezel. After that, in 2016, the ceramic ring was popularized on the steel shell Daytona, which is the 116500. The Daytona 116500 with a black ceramic bezel is reminiscent of the black acrylic bezel of the early Daytona 6263 (including 6241). Also starting from the 116500 generation, Daytona’s market price began to rise rapidly. Among them, the “panda” color matching of white dial and black chronograph dial is the most popular.

In addition to the ceramic ring, 116500 continues the 40mm size and uses the Rolex 4130 automatic chronograph movement. 116500 is the culmination of the current steel case Daytona. As for the new Daytona watch that Rolex replica will release at the upcoming Geneva Watch and Miracle Watch Fair, we will wait and see.
