Perhaps the most fascinating thing about these unconventional Rolex watches is their agility, the ability to manipulate or specify anything around their actual theme, inspiration, design, or execution. In the fake watch’s 14-page official presentation, Rolex dedicates two entire pages to saying: “The Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona was born to race, and is the benchmark for those with a passion for driving and speed.” Like anyone says!
To its credit, Rolex does refer to this version as “mysterious and sparkling” — a description hard to argue against. The two words are right where the show ends, because behind them is a very dry description of 36 trapezoidal diamonds in the bezel and a paved black lacquered dial, “a champagne-colored chronograph counter interlaced with black lacquered and diamond.” The rest of the whole document is Rolex describing its impressive traits, such as the Manufacture Rolex Caliber 4130, the Oyster case, the Oysterflex bracelet in the proper same way as it does with all other replica watches.
As for the core specs, the case is the olden but golden 40mm-wide Oyster Cosmograph Daytona case, fitted with a non-removable lug-structure that allows no three-link solid gold Oyster bracelet to ever be fitted.
Inside the solid 18-karat gold case is the Rolex Manufacture Caliber 4130, exactly the same movement you would find in each and every other currently produced Cosmograph Daytona. The Cerachrom ceramic bezel has been replaced with 34 trapeze-cut diamonds, all invisibly set, stacked closely next to each other — experts refer to invisible setting as the most challenging setting technique in watchmaking, as the preparation of the slot, as well as the cut, has to be exactly right throughout.
I understand that, in today’s PC world, it’s probably best not to say anything — and if the Swiss watchmaking culture is surely world-class in something, it is “choosing not to comment” on anything. You either get it/love it at first sight, or you probably never will, and Rolex appears not to make an effort to tip you over — save for its nice photography.
Whether you, I, or anyone else likes the Daytona 116588TBR Rolex replica watch, objectively speaking, it’s a watch, both in its execution — there’s a reason why you won’t see the invisible baguette setting, or trapezoidal cut diamond bezel, in its bold look. To get back to the original point, I’ll end with the following comment. It is easy to think of Rolex as a privileged brand that runs the world, but if what Rolex is doing is easy, so are the brands.
