Quality & Trademark All our watches are water resistant but not waterproof; we do not recommend swimming with them or taking showers with them. Taking the watches underwater will revoke their guarantee.

  • Swiss or Japanese?

    Difference between Swiss and Japanese Quality:

    Body:
    The materials that are used for the casing, bracelet, and exterior features of both types of watch are the same. The only difference is in the precision of the manufacturing. Some exterior details may be closer to the original and the exterior features of the watch may be more exact on the Swiss models.

    Mechanism:
    The biggest difference between Swiss and Japanese quality is the mechanism itself. Swiss quality watches are made with Swiss ETA movement and are actually made in Switzerland. They are identical to the original in every way. Japanese quality watches are made with Miyota movement. This mechanism can sometimes be less precise.

    Features:

    • On Japanese quality watches the chronograph feature is sometimes just for show.
    • On Swiss quality watches the power reserve is better so it will need to be wound less.

    Warning:
    Although some sites may make a claim their replica watches are water proof no replica watch is water proof. They are water resistant. This means you cannot submerge your watch in water and you should remove it before taking a shower.

    WATCH INSTRUCTIONS AND INFORMATION

    Warning:

    This watch is water resistant not water proof. You cannot submerge your watch in water and you should remove it before taking a shower.

    Understanding your watch:

    The Crown: The crown is the main dial or knob on your watch. It is the biggest and the center one to the right. It is used to set and wind your watch.

    The crown has 4 positions:

    Position 1: Closed- When you receive your watch the crown will be in the closed position. Once you have opened the crown you need to press the crown inwards and turn it clockwise to screw it back into the closed position. It is always advisable to keep the crown tightly closed when you are not adjusting the date or time.

    Position 2: Winding- Starting with the watch in the closed position, if you turn the crown counter-clockwise the knob will unscrew, once unscrewed it will pop out. This initial position is for winding. Always wind in a clockwise direction (away from your body). Winding counter clockwise can damage your watch.

    Position 3: Date-Starting with the crown in position 2 gently nudge the dial outwards by pulling with your thumb and forefinger. It is important to note that pulling it all the way out will move it to position 4. You need to find the sweet spot between position 2 and 4 to change the date. If your watch does not display the date there will be no position 3. When the crown is in the date position it is very important that you do not force it counter clockwise. You can damage the mechanism.

    Position 4: Time- Starting from either position 2 or 3, with your thumb and forefinger pull the crown out until it stops. From this final position you can change the time. Always move the crown in a clockwise direction. Moving the dial counter clockwise can damage the mechanism.

    *Some watches (Hublot & Cartier) have 4 different dials or knobs that are used for setting the date and time.

    Operating Instructions:

    Winding your watch: When you first receive your automatic watch you will need to manually wind it for approximately 1 minute. This is what we call ‘jumpstarting’ your watch. From position 2 turn the dial clockwise for 3 consecutive minutes. Do not turn the dial counter clockwise. You could damage the mechanism.

    To ensure your watch is fully wound we recommend also winding it by 2 full clockwise circles 3 times a day for the following 2 to 3 days. After that your watch will continue to self-wind from the motion of your wrist provided you continue to wear it every day.

    Setting the Time: While the crown is in position 4 turn the dial clockwise (away from your body) until the hands have reached the correct position. Do not turn the dial counter-clockwise. You could damage the mechanism.

    Setting the Date: With the crown in position 3 turn the dial clockwise (away from your body) to change the date. If your watch also displays the day you may be able to turn the dial counter clockwise to change the day. Do not force it; if your watch does not have this functionality you could damage your watch by turning the dial counter clockwise.

     

    Chronographs: Many of our watch models feature up to 3 sub-dials. These are chronographs (essentially stop watches) with timekeeping intervals ranging from seconds to hours. The chronographs are activated with start/stop push buttons located next to the crown. To start a chronograph, simply push the button corresponding to that sub-dial, and press the same button again to stop it.

    How is your watch powered?

    Kinetic Watch: Your kinetic watch does not use a battery. Inside the face of the watch there is a small mallet which self-winds the watch according to the movement of your hand. If you take the watch off for more than 24 hours you may have to reset the watch and wind it.

    Quartz Watch: A quartz watch is powered by a battery. The battery will need to be replaced regularly in order to keep your watch in working order.

    Japanese vs. Swiss Watches:

    The materials that are used for the casing, bracelet, and exterior features of both types of watch are the same. The only difference is in the precision of the manufacturing. Some exterior details may be closer to the original and the exterior features of the watch may be more exact on the Swiss models.
    Swiss quality watches are made with Swiss ETA movement and are actually made in Switzerland. They are identical to the original in every way. Japanese quality watches are made with Miyota movement. This mechanism can sometimes be less precise.
    It is also common on Japanese quality watches that some of the functionality is for show only. By contrast, all the functionality of the Swiss watches is fully operational. The power reserve on the Swiss watches is better so it will need to be wound less.

    Trouble Shooting:

    Your Watch Stops Working: Your automatic watch does not use a battery and winds itself using the movement of your wrist. It is normal for a watch to stop after 24-48 hours of not being worn. You will need to wind your watch and reset the time as outlined in this pamphlet. It will then automatically wind itself once you start wearing it again.

    Your Watch is Losing Or Gaining Time: If your Automatic watch is losing or gaining time in a 24-hour period, while you are wearing it, the watch movement needs to be adjusted. All of our automatic watches feature Japanese Miyota or Swiss ETA movements with an adjustment screw just like the original. Any local jeweler can easily service these watches.

    Chronograph Doesn’t Work: Our Swiss watches have fully functional chronographs just like the originals. If one of the chronographs stops working it needs to be serviced by a professional. Servicing a chronograph involves removing the case and manually restarting or replacing the mechanism that controls it.
    Unfortunately many Japanese made watches do not have the separate mechanism necessary to operate multi-function chronographs. If you wish to have fully functional chronographs we recommend you purchase a Swiss quality watch.

    Battery Powered Watch Does Not Work

    If your watch is not fully operational when you receive it, it may be necessary to remove and replace the battery of your watch to restart it.

     

    We recommend having your watch serviced once or twice a year to ensure the mechanism continues to work.

Big Boy Watch For the Big Boys Only Review by Samuel Rosen
Rating
To all the negative reviews and jokers - In all seriousness..This watch is perhaps not for you. It's for someone who has reached a milestone in their life. Someone who has achieved something important and they would to commemorate it. I get the joke..wasn't that funny but I got it. One day when you grown up and hopefully make some money and something out of yourself, you'll understand. Until then, leave the big boy watches for the big boys. (Posted on 26/11/2017)
From an owner of this watch. Review by G. Hewitt
Rating
Along with new Rolex's going up in price... your used Rolex does too... eventually your used Rolex is worth more than you bought it new and you can sell it to break even or make profit... and thus the reason that so many collect these timepeices. Of course... if you want to invest your money... you can find a lot greater returns at a bank or financial advisor than in a Rolex. (Posted on 26/11/2017)
Beware of fake Daytona's Review by phil

I love my Daytona, I bought it off my Uncle from an Estate sale. I was not aware of the "Molex" watches that are floating around of this model. (Posted on 26/11/2017)
Right place and the right time Review by B. Morton
Rating
After talking to the dealer and then reviewing the sites I'm starting to think I should have also bought a lottery ticket. My wife and I walked into a local jewelers to buy a watch for my birthday and after looking at several types and brands the salesman, (a friend) leaned over the counter and said i have something else to show you. He asked the owner to get the "Daytona" and as soon as I saw it I knew that was the watch. (Posted on 26/11/2017)
Great watch Review by Thomas Busciglio III

The best watch I have ever owned. I own over 100 watches for citizen to rolex and this one by far is the best and anyone who knows rolexs are in awe if you have one of these. (Posted on 26/11/2017)
Got one in Jan/2006 Review by Where's My Stuff??
Rating
I started looking for a Dayton in Shanghai, China. The quotes ranged from USD6,500 to over USD8,000 but none of the dealers had any in stock. Then I was fortunate enough to find a white dail SS 116520 in Taipei, Taiwan earlier this year for about USD9,600. I had to wait for about a week before it turned up, but I didn't hesitate for even one second. (Posted on 26/11/2017)

Excellent timepiece Review by Rachaphon Wang
Rating
This is one of the most sought out timepieces of rolex. I just bought one yesterday from a rolex boutique in Southern California. I recommend anyone who is looking to get this piece not to make his purchase online as that would void rolex warranty. Furthermore, you do not know the history of the watch, it could be a fake or the movement might have been swapped out. (Posted on 26/11/2017)
Nice watch but not the best Rolex for everyday wear Review by J. Miles
Rating
The problem with the Daytona is that, even in all stainless steel, it is EXTREMELY susceptible to minor scratches, especially on the dial. I only wear mine VERY occasionally (the original green sticker on the back of the case is still like new) but I have some very minor scratches on the dial. (Posted on 26/11/2017)
Rolex Daytona- rare, beautiful, and worth every cent! Review by M. Gillum
Rating
As a fairly new Rolex Daytona owner (waiting list for 2 years), I concur with the statements made before me about availability, and cost. The watch speaks for itself (if real) and I am impressed with it more each day. Whether it is an object of love, desire, investment, or indulgence, wanting one is no sin, and owning one sheer pleasure. (Posted on 26/11/2017)
