This was supposed to be a big year for the perfect fake Rolex Daytona. It was the 60th anniversary of the model, after all. And sure, putting a display caseback on the platinum Daytona was a surprising move, but with only a few little tweaks, I left Watches and Wonders unimpressed.
Apparently, I was waiting for the wrong anniversary.
When the 100th anniversary of the Le Mans race came around in June, luxury replica Rolex UK made the best Daytona they’ve designed in years, with the new Rolex 126529LN – aka the new “Le Mans Daytona.” The Rolex Daytona was originally meant to be the Rolex Le Mans, but that never happened. Until June, the Rolex “Le Mans” was the Double Swiss Underline ref. 6239. But this isn’t that watch. It’s not even a steel 1:1 fake Rolex Daytona. It’s something entirely different.
Steel Rolex Daytonas replica for sale are fine, but the weird rings on the subdials created a visually busy watch. Now, there’s a white gold version that’s far and away better, with a white gold bracelet, full, bright white subdials contrasting against the black sunburst dial, a ceramic bezel with red “100” marker, and a white gold border for more contrast, and display caseback – don’t let anyone tell you cheap fake Rolex‘s finishing is bad enough to be worth hiding. But the thing that I love about it is that, with the lollipop subdial indicators reminiscent of a Paul Newman Daytona, it shows that high quality replica Rolex can still acknowledge the fans and their own history without making an homage.
The inaccessibility that has come with the demand for vintage Swiss movement replica Rolex UK can sometimes make you feel like Rolex is this giant, unfeeling, unaware company. The new Le Mans high quality fake Rolex Daytona will certainly still be nearly impossible to get, but it’s a perfect nod from Rolex to say, “Yeah, we know what you like – we like it too.”
