Amazing Replica Rolex Daytona 16520
Branded watch fans must know the history of the Rolex Daytona, when the brand established their relationship of the well-known car races in Daytona, Florida. However, the replica Rolex made up its mind to replace the Daytona’s hand-wound movement with an automatic one just over two decades after the first Daytona debuted. In 1988, they launched the amazing series, which finally included the Rolex Daytona model as their first collection of the automatic chronograph. Now let’s take a closer look at this item.
There was something that made these models extremely special, and it wasn’t just that they had an automatic movement. It was the fake Zenith El Primero automatic chronograph movement. The El Primero was not only the first but also the best automatic chronograph movement at the time. It was first launched in 1969, but when the brand was bought by Zenith Radio Corporation (ZRC) in 1971, the run of the revolutionary movement was cut short.
Therefore, when the Rolex was looking for an automatic chronograph movement for the Daytona, Zenith came to them. Rolex agreed that if Zenith could revive the production of the El Primero, they’d form a partnership. Zenith presented the first updated variation of the El Primero, the caliber 4030, in 1986. The Rolex replica request about 200 modifications before landing on a version that reached their rigorous production standards for the all-new Daytona.
Apart from the entire revamped El Primero movement, the Rolex Daytona 16520 also characterized several aesthetic updates from previous Daytona models. Some of the most notable changes include the addition of a sapphire crystal, a larger 40mm case size, lacquered and glossy dials, and applied metal hour markers treated with luminous material. These design changes coupled with the functional changes made this best replica watch more than just a superb tool watch—it was now an equally impressive dress watch.
The release of the brand new Daytona was an immediate victory. Particularly, the replica watches soon became one of the most highly sought after models for the brand, especially since it was only manufactured in limited quantities due to the outsourced movement. However, in spite of the success of the imagined Daytona, the fake Rolex still had its sights on something more. They wanted all of their models to characterize their own in-house movements, and the 16500 series was the only collection keeping them from realizing that goal.
The fake Daytona with its in-house movement keeps on being one of the interesting models in the Rolex family of watches. However, when the brand discontinued the Rolex series, it only provided to fulfill the demand for the El Primero models.
