The year of 2017 is the most significant year for Roles Daytona loves, because the company successfully launched a Daytona with a ceramic bezel in steel. However, for the year of 2017, Rolex has a big progress of the Daytona line, which is also in gold style. The yellow and white gold Daytona watches will all be getting Cerachrom (Rolex-speak for ceramic) bezels this year. But, the most surprising thing among all is that these watches will come without a traditional Oyster bracelet. Some people appreciate it, some don’t like it, but there’ clearly a market out there for it.
I’ll share my opinion of the Oysterflex strap later, but first of all, let’ take a review of the basics of the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona, which will be known for anyone who knows the Rolex Daytona. These new rolex Daytona replica watches will come in a 40mm-wide case and will be made in 18k white gold and 18k yellow gold, and they will now come with Cerachrom bezels. There’ a third version in Everose as well. Technically, the Everose Rolex Cosmograph Daytona already had a Cerachrom bezel when it was launched, but it joins the other two here since it will now be provided with an Oysterflex bracelet.
From the year of 2015, the Everose Yacht-Maste has become the first watch to have the Oysterflex. The Oysterflex strap is very unique in that it is not just a rubber or elastomer strap. No, Rolex does not do things the simple way. On the contrary, a super elastic blade is used and then molded over with elastomer. The aim was to create a strap with the reliability of a metal bracelet and the comfort of an elastomer strap. For the new Daytona watches here, they will also get an Oysterlock safety clasp with the Easylink mechanism that soon raises the strap length by about 5mm – great for warm days when your wrists expand.
One thing to mention about the implementation of the Oysterflex strap is that different from the replica rolex Yacht-Master, the Rolex Daytona watches will come with special end links so that there isn’t an unsightly gap between the strap and the case. In addition, however misgivings you might have about the bracelet will be easily forgotten once you put these watches on your wrist. Elastomer is really so suitable and comfortable on the skin, and Rolex makes it even better by having fins under the strap that create a cushion between the strap and your wrist. This offers convenience for your wrist to enlarge and contract a bit without making the watch feel too loose or tight. Also, the fins help vent the inner part of the strap on hot days.
The rest of the case is sublimely completed. The polishing is spotless, and the screwed-down pushers and the crown are all immaculately crafted and feel comfortable to use it. Water proof is rated at 100 meters, which really should be the bare minimum these days for any watch that names itself as a sports watch.
As far as the dials concerned, the yellow gold model will come with a champagne dial, instead, the white gold model will come with what Rolex calls a “steel” dial, however, the Everose model has a very luscious pink dial. Each model will also have hands made out of the same gold material as their cases. In my opinion, I prefer the dials of the white gold and Everose model best. The “steel” color, which is really more like a silvery-grey or slate, is pretty fresh and harmonious to my eyes. As for the Everose model, the pink dial complements the Everose case so, so well.
Inside these new Rolex Cosmograph Daytona watches lie the legendary Calibre 4130, Rolex’ own in-house chronograph movement. It has everything you expect from a chronograph movement at this price point, including a column wheel with vertical clutch, and a lengthy power reserve of 72 hours. It also has a Parachrom hairspring, made out of a special blend of alloys that permits it to be less influenced by shocks and magnetic fields. What’ more, it meets Rolex’ new Superlative Chronometer certification, which means it’ll run between -2/+2 seconds a day and will ensure a warranty period of 5 years.
Therefore, OK, these new Rolex Cosmograph Daytona replica watches are a bit unusual, special and unexpected, but they are still exceptionally beautiful watches .No mention of some people’ misgivings about the Oysterflex strap, I personally believe that in fact they are appealing, special, and sporty, and I have seen them win the trust and love from those who could be considering a sporty chronograph from other well-known brands.
