The precious Rolex Daytona copy watch with gold bezel that will be auctioned next month has been described as the world’s one and only chronograph wristwatch with red dial. Why? The movement it equips is not the famous and symbolic Cal.4130. Instead, it is the precise Zenith El Primero 400.
Sotheby’s never provides more background information, so it is a mystery. Some people suspect that the unique model might not the authentic, but all the details of the dials of this perfect Rolex fake watch have been verified carefully including the numbers and words. All the elements are exactly the same with the standard dials of Rolex.
The back of this red dial imitation watch is engraved with Jean Singer & Cie, which was the dials manufacturer of Daytona at that time. In short, the red dial was created by Rolex and it had been assembled into the gold Daytona ref.16528.
