In fact, UK Rolex Daytona replica wasn’t the first Rolex chronograph (it was 1935, when Rolex released its initial chrono model, with the separate central second hand and the Valjoux movement). However, the Rolex Daytona was distinguished by the two crucial innovations, which made it instantly popular and the typical model of the Rolex.
Rolex adopted new mechanism with three chrono counters, which ensured a splendid precision. In addition, Rolex presented a tachymeter scale engraved on a bezel for the first time. With these functions that offered precise measuring of elapsed circuit time and average speed, car racers could acquire lots of information they needed to know.
The Rolex Daytona copy watches have been updated with up-to-date models, but the essence of the first Daytona is still alive. At present, it features the in-house Caliber 4130 chronograph self-winding movement, which provides stable power reserve of 72-hours (66 hours if the stopwatch is in use). In addition, the advanced movement allows central hand to count time with 1/8 second accuracy. Owing to the blue Parachrom hairspring, it also enjoys admirable resistance to shocks, temperature changes and magnetic fields.
The bezel is enhanced by the tachymeter scale, which is served for measuring speed of up to 400 units per hour (expressed in miles or kilometres). Beneath the Bezel, the legible dial is distinguished by three chronograph sub-dials. A small second counter is at 6 o’clock position; a 30 minute counter is located at 3, while a 12 hour sub-dial takes 9 o’clock position.
