Yesterday, on January 29, 2017, the 55th edition of the Rolex 24 (aka 24 hours of cheap replica Rolex Daytona) race took place, sponsored by, of course, Rolex. Part of what that means is that the winner get’s a special Rolex watch, so we were naturally interested to have a look at the watch itself.
After 659 laps over the course of 24 hours around the Daytona speedway in Florida, Ricky Taylor, driving the No. 10 Konica Minolta Cadillac DPi-V.R was the winner. Along with the bragging rights, the prestige of winning the race, and (obviously) the trophy, Taylor and his team (which includes Jeff Gordon) are also receiving a Rolex Cosmograph Daytona watch in two-tone steel and yellow gold with a white dial. This is clearly not just any Rolex Daytona, but is engraved on the back exclaiming it’s meant for the wrist of the driver who wins the grueling 24-hour race.
When discussing the win, Taylor specifically referenced the watch’s significance, saying, “After an intense race in tough conditions, it is such a relief to stand in Victory Lane as winners of ‘The Rolex.’ We take part in this race with the dream of winning the 24-hour marathon but also of one day putting a Rolex Daytona limited edition watch on our wrists. It really is the ultimate reward in motorsport and a reminder of our success. I’m very proud to be added to the accomplished list of Rolex 24 At Daytona winners.”
It looks like Taylor got the ref. 116503 Rolex Daytona which is the two-tone steel and 18k yellow gold model. Rolex slightly updated the Daytona line last year by introducing a cerachrome ceramic bezel model, but I don’t think anyone is going to complain about getting the gold bezel here. Specific Daytona models given to the winning team vary year to year.
What they share in common, however, is the satisfyingly pithy engraved case back with the race’s logo, the year, and the word “Winner.”
As one of their most popular line of Rolex cheap fake watches, the Rolex Submariner is a common choice for first-time buyers and seasoned collectors alike. Originally introduced in 1954, the Rolex Submariner line has undergone numerous revisions over the years, with certain vintage references attaining unparalleled levels of collectibility.
Many vintage Rolex collectors prefer the no-date Submariner to its date-displaying counterpart because it is more faithful to the spirit of the very first Rolex Submariner, the reference 6204. The no-date Rolex Submariner is the quintessential dive watch, and its timeless design makes it incredibly versatile and a true classic.
First introduced in 1962, the reference 5513 Rolex Submariner had a very long production run (even by Rolex standards), as it remained in production until 1989. The reference 5513 was almost identical to Rolex’s other, no-date Rolex Submariner at the time, the reference 5512; however, the reference 5513 was fitted with a non-chronometer-certified caliber 1520 movement, and lacked the additional “Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified” lines of text on the dial.
Due to its extremely long production run, a wide range of subtitle variations exists between different reference 5513 Rolex Submariners series replica watches, and each alludes to the era in which the watch was manufactured. Most obvious among these variations, and possibly the most important to collectors, is the type of dial on the watch.
Initially, the reference 5513 Rolex Submariner was fitted with a glossy, gilt dial that had gold lettering; however, in 1967, Rolex switched to the classic matte black dial with white text that can be found on many other vintage Rolex watches. Due to their narrow production window, reference 5513 Rolex Submariners with gilt dials are considered quite rare and highly sought-after by collectors.
Another dial variation that is of interest to collectors is the “meters first” depth rating, which is also indicative of an early production run. The original gilt dials, and some of the very first reference 5513 matte dials have their depth rating printed with the meters measurement listed first, while all later Rolex Submariner 5513 dials and contemporary Submariner dials have their depth ratings printed with the feet measurement appearing first.
Although it does not contain a chronometer-certified movement, the reference 5513 Rolex Submariner is the classic Rolex dive watch, and its 28-year-long production run is testament to its rock-solid (albeit non-COSC-certified) movement, versatile design, and timeless good looks. In fact, during the 1960s, while on vacation in England, a friend of the Prince of Kuwait purchased himself a brand-new reference 5513 Rolex Submariner with the hopes of impressing his royal companion when he returned home.
As the reference 5513 Rolex Submariner had just been introduced by Rolex a few years prior in 1962, it was still a relatively new design, and was considered to be a state-of-the-art dive instrument, intended to accompany Rolex diving replica watches and oceanographers as they explored the ocean’s depths.
The Rolex Submariner Date reference 116610LV series replica watches, aka “Hulk,” is the Rolex Submariner we all know and love (there are always dissenters, I imagine) but with a green ceramic bezel and green dial. It commands a price premium over the more traditional black ceramic bezel and matching black dial “classic” Rolex Submariner 116610LN reference model and further exists in the interesting pantheon of green Rolex watches that have often been released as special anniversary pieces for the brand.
As is the case with many timepieces that I eventually end up being very fond of, the green-dialed Rolex Submariner green dial fake watches were not a timepiece I was immediately enamored with when it was first debuted in 2010. It was hardly that I didn’t like it – especially as I am pretty sure green is my favorite color – but rather that I was a bit ambivalent towards it. I believe my thinking at the time was that the black-dialed Submariner was so good, it was going to be tough to convince consumers to get green instead of black, or to ask them to pony up and buy both. I also want to note that while the green “Hulk” Rolex Submariner 116610LV isn’t a limited edition, it’s not the type of watch Rolex will make forever. Its popularity has kept it in production, but Rolex could quietly stop making it at any time without notice or reason.
Over the years, I’ve admired the green Submariner from afar seeing it on fellow watch lovers, celebrities, and even hearing some people criticize it. Someone whose taste I admire even called it “uncool.” Mind you, at the time, this person was wearing a Rolex (a vintage Daytona on a bund-style cuff strap) so they weren’t exactly hostile to the brand. I believe their reasoning was that in their opinion wearing the green-dialed Rolex Submariner 116610LV came across to him as though someone was “trying too hard.” Trying too hard to what? Well, perhaps stand out or be unique.
I agree that if that is why you purchase this watch, or any watch for that matter, then it isn’t cool. I do, however, disagree that the green Rolex Submariner 116610LV isn’t a cool watch – it just depends on how you wear it. First of all, green is obviously a key color for Rolex, given that it is the brand’s primary trademark hue. What I like, however, is that Rolex likes to play with various shades of green. That means the various green Rolex watches out there, from Daytona watches to Presidents, have different shades and finishes of green. I personally think that if I were sufficiently funded I would very much like to have a collection of as many different green-dialed Rolex watches as I could get my hands on.
Another justification for me in adding the green replica Rolex Submariner 116610LV Date to my collection is that I already had another similar modern Rolex Submariner watch in black. However, this wasn’t the Submariner Date but rather the Rolex Submariner “No Date” reference 114060 which has a beautiful symmetrical dial. Thus, I didn’t have a Rolex Submariner Date in my collection, so adding the green Rolex Submariner 116610LV didn’t feel too redundant.
Mention Bamford Watch Department replica Rolex watches and you’ll get mixed looks from watch lovers. Understandably, there are those who think that customizing a Rolex is almost sacrilegious. On the other hand, there are those who defend Bamford and insist that they provide a cool option for watch lovers who love Rolex but want something a little different, for a variety of reasons. I’m not a fan of all of their work, but I’m quite fond of their new Heritage collection. Clearly, I’m not alone, because in just the short span of a few months since its introduction, Bamford is bolstering their Heritage collection with two more watches – the Bamford Heritage Explorer I and the Bamford Heritage Bicolor Paul Newman Daytona watch.
The Heritage collection is new to Bamford and was only released earlier this year. As its name clearly suggests, it’s inspired by the looks of vintage Rolex replica watches. As an example, one of the earlier Heritage watches is the Bamford Heritage MilSub that’s unmistakably inspired by the vintage MilSub made by Rolex in the Seventies for the British Ministry of Defense. It’s a wonderful marriage of the old and the new.
Joining the pack is the Bamford Heritage Explorer I, which draws ideas from the vintage Rolex Explorer I ref. 6350. Many of the lovely traits of the vintage Rolex Explorer I 6350 are found on this watch, including the glowing warm look of the gilt dial, the 3-6-9 dial configuration, and the unique textured honeycomb lattice dial. The honeycomb dial is a nice touch because it was only found on rarer versions of the 6350 Rolex Explorer. Other features that the Bamford Heritage Explorer I has that are shared with the vintage 6350 Rolex Explorer include the lollipop seconds hand and the large oversized crown with no crown guards.
The Bamford Heritage Explorer I is based on an actual current Rolex Explorer, and so it comes with a modern 39mm stainless steel case. The case, however, has been given Bamford’s signature light grey Military Grade Titanium Coating (MGTC) for better resistance to wear. Additionally, because it’s based on the Rolex Explorer, it has Rolex’s bulletproof caliber 3132 movement.
