The mens Rolex Cosmograph Daytona watch replica looks good. The case still measures 40 mm and it is still waterproof up to 100 meters… The ceramic bezel has in fact totally changed the appearance of this chronograph.
That rating means that the new Rolex Daytona also sports the Rolex Superlative Chronometer Certification, of which you can read all about right here. A new aesthetic choice I love is the black snailed sub-dials on the white dial model, while the other available version in black dial has gray snailed sub-dials. Now, let’s get our hands on this new Rolex Cosmograph Daytona and see what it has to offer in person. I’s about time the steel Rolex Daytona got an upgrade, as it’s been about sixteen years since we’ve seen it refreshed.
Rolex has also made an effort to preserve the legibility on the bezel through a process they developed that involves moulding the graduations into the ceramic before it’s heated up to 1,500 degrees celsius. After this, it’s coated with a thin layer of platinum using a PVD process. What this process does is create a level of definition in tandem with the contrast of platinum and black ceramic.
Furthermore, the tachymeter scale has been updated so now it “follows” the rounded shape of the dial – the numerals were “horizontal” on the previous version. One final point about the bezel before moving on is that it’s one single piece holding the crystal in place on the middle case, which helps with waterproofing.
The wait is over with the new-for-Baselworld-2016 luxury Rolex Cosmograph Daytona copy watch reference 116500LN in 904L steel. It uses a new monobloc Cerachrom bezel in black ceramic with an updated tahcymeter design, shedding the older engraved metal bezel. It’s still got the calibre 4130 movement, but is now tested by Rolex to +2/-2 seconds per day accuracy, which is super impressive for a mass produced chronograph.
The calibre 4130’s oscillator has a Rolex patented blue Parachrom hairspring made in a proprietary alloy. The Parachrom hairspring is resistant to magnetic fields, allowing it to offer stability in situations that also include temperature variations as well as shocks, where it can remain up to 10 times more precise than a traditional hairspring. The automatic movement operates at 28,800 vph (4Hz) and affords a power reserve of 72 hours, which we’d normally say is more than ample if you want to take it off for a weekend or even a long weekend… But, we don’t think you’ll be getting tired of a brand-new Rolex Cosmograph Daytona that soon.
What dramatically improved is the quality of the movement. Now it is regulated to -2/+2 seconds a day. The power reserve is 72 hours. It is still a 4 Hz caliber and it has no silicon balance spring, but the Rolex-own Parachrom balance-spring. And Rolex now is testing the entire Rolex replica watch UK in a dedicated procedure to finally name it Superlative Chronometer.
