Perfect fake Rolex Daytona UK
It’d be hard to write a list of top panda dials and NOT include a vintage replica Rolex Daytona. I have a bit of a mixed opinion about Rolex replica as a brand. Still, even I cannot deny how downright sexy the vintage best Rolex Daytona fake watches were. Swiss made fake Rolex released the first official Daytona in 1963, the best replica Rolex Cosmograph Reference 6239, in a “reverse panda” dial configuration with a steel bezel. It was the first Rolex chronograph to feature the “Daytona” moniker on the dial. The Crown made a few different versions of the panda dial Daytona in the 60s and 70s, with different bezel material and dial designs. It’s tough to pick a single victor here, so I have narrowed it down to two. The “Paul Newman” Daytona replica and the Reference 6240.
The Paul Newman panda
The name “Paul Newman” has practically become folklore when it comes to the world of vintage AAA perfect Rolex Daytona replica watches. It’s very easy to get confused by the multitude of reference numbers and the addition of the Newman name. Paul Newman’s name usually refers to the dial, an “exotic” art-deco-inspired panda dial variant rather than the standard dial. Paul was always seen wearing it, and it kind of became his trademark of sorts. It’s not uncommon to see various reference numbers with the Newman name attached. However, if we’re talking about “The Paul Newman Daytona”, the one that sold for $17.8m at Phillips auction house in 2017. In that case, that is a reference 6239 with the art-deco panda dial and a classy steel bezel, and simple pump pushers. It was a gift from his wife, and what a gift it was!
Released in 1965, the 6240 was the successor to the 6239. It marked the introduction of the screw-down pushers, offering water resistance not found on its predecessor. That said, it wasn’t until 1967 was considered fully waterproof, and the word “Oyster” was added to the dial. The 6240 also moved away from the steel bezel and featured a black acrylic inlay instead. Possibly my favorite thing about the 6240, though, is the stunning silver sunburst dial. Combined with the black subdials, this is one heck of a watch. It’s not hard to see why these AAA high-quality replica watches have become so collectible — this kind of style never goes out of fashion.
