The Original Rolex Daytona has become an icon in the 60s when the first series was introduced. It was produced until the late 80s and remains one of the luxury watch lines most exclusive and expensive ever created. Part of the excitement comes from the fact that each model had a code unique four digit product has the ideal collection, especially today. Although a second series was introduced in the early 90s and still happens, the first set remains emblematic. Rolex is the title sponsor of the race 24 Hours of Daytona and the clock was designed from the beginning to have the incredible precision sought by car enthusiasts. Over the years, the Daytona, Rolex and other watches, has become popular because of status symbol they represent.

Being a luxury icon so important, it is one of the most counterfeited models in the world, which means that there are many bad copies that do not deserve to be named. Of course, there are good imitations but usually difficult to find due to the abundance of cheap watches. To better understand the most common differences in the time to buy a replica Rolex Daytona, we will do a little comparison between good copy and the original timepiece.

What stands view from the top is the quality of the steel. Genuine Rolex watches are made from a single high-quality steel block, which gives them a unique look and feel. The replicas watches are not made in exactly the same way and can be seen in a positive light.

A common difference is the finishing touch. Although not so obvious, the location of the Rolex crown is different and also the spindle size. Letters written inside the staple are also different.

The errors are quite small and most people do not even notice, and is this the way it should look good replica watch. The weight of the watch can be a good indicator of the quality of steel used and is why some stores include this detail in the descriptions. Overall it is a well-made copy.

The unstoppable Tank de Cartier

After last year’s Tank Crash and Tank Anglaise, make way for the very masculine Tank MC whose 1904 movement already equips the Calibre de Cartier watch. The skeletonised version in palladium is powered by the patented 9611 movement which also equips the Santos 100.

The Tank watch has been by Cartier’s side since it was launched in 1917. The very first prototype, so the story goes, was made for General John Pershing who led the armed forces which the United States deployed in Europe during the First World War. Since then, the Tank has become part of the Cartier legend, inspiring countless versions over the course of its almost century-long history: Tank Cintrée (1921), Tank Chinoise (1922), à guichet (1928), étanche (1931), Basculante (1932), Asymétrique (1936), Must (1977), Américaine (1989), Française (1996), à vis (1999) Divan (2002), Solo (2004)… Last year, the Maison was in the spotlight with two new iterations, namely the Tank Anglaise and Tank Crash, an opportunity to chronicle the history of this iconic timepiece, not least in an exhibition staged at the 2012 Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie in Geneva.

Clearly the Tank provides an endless source of inspiration, as this summer Cartier is launching a new version, the Tank MC whose initials stand for Manufacture Cartier. Indeed, this new Tank watch, in its rose gold, steel and Fine Jewellery version paved with baguette diamonds, will come equipped with Cartier’s first in-house movement, the 1904 MC which already drives the Calibre de Cartier and the large Tank Anglaise.
