What can I say about the high quality fake Rolex Daytona? After having this ref. 6263 on my wrist as I write this, I can’t deny that the hype is real. The ref. 6263 is one of my favorite Daytona references because of the Oyster case, the screw-down pushers, and the black bezel. These characteristics give the watch a much more aggressive and bold look compared to the earlier pump-pusher variations.
There’s just something about the screw-down pushers and black bezel that gets my heart racing. The example we have here today is from 1985, which marks the last era of the manually wound Daytonas; in a few short years, the next generation of automatic Daytonas would be available. To me, it’s cool to think about the last version of something and how after this, the steel bracelet replica Rolex Daytona ref.6263 would never be the same.
One thing that draws me to this example is its overall excellent condition. Specifically, the dial is to die for; all the lume plots are full and round, and the color of the lume all matches very nicely. Dials on these Swiss movement Rolex copy watches are so important, and when you see a good one, you understand why. The custard-colored lume looks beautiful against the silver dial – it’s just so good. Another nice thing about the watch’s aesthetic is the overall contrast – the bezel is black, the dial is silver, and the registers are black; it all just works so well together. Then, throw in that red “Daytona” text on the dial above the hour register and chef’s kiss.
Since it is ’80s week, after all, I would like to end here with some wise words from Ferris Bueller, “If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up.”
