Yes, manual-wind Daytonas were languishing in the showcases up until this point — truth, my dad tells stories of how the local AD in Fort Lauderdale simply couldn’t sell them. Interestingly, 19 years after the first automatic chronographs debuted, Swiss movement replica Rolex still didn’t have its own in-house solution. Instead, the brand turned to Zenith and opted to modify the El Primero movement.
AAA fake Rolex UK made changes such as removing the date function, slowing down the movement to 28,800vph, and giving it a COSC rating. The end result was the caliber 4030 automatic chronograph movement.
The cheap fake Rolex Daytona 16520 measured in at 40mm and featured a polished metal external tachymeter bezel. Like the Explorer II, it also came in both black and white dial options. This line of Daytona models also introduced a polarizing trend that found its way to later generations of the more luxurious sports models — polished center links.

These days, you’ll need €30K to enter the running for one of these watches. The positive is that they’re always in demand and are generally quite easy to sell.
