Steel vs Black – whenever a reference 6263 or a 6265 shows up at our Vintage desk, we always debate about which reference is better. The Daytona reference 6265 was offered with a steel (or gold) bezel and the reference 6263 which was offered with a black acrylic bezel. That’s basically the difference between the two perfect UK sale Rolex Datona replica. They were both also available with black or silver dials and that difference splits the opinions further. Even my colleagues here at the online store are split with which reference and dial combination they prefer.
My vote goes for this exact combination: A reference 6265 with a steel bezel and a black dial, with the red “Daytona” logo right above the register at six. It captures the essence of vintage and modern in a way that flows beautifully together. The steel bezel adds a bit of additional sparkle which makes it ever-so-slightly dressier compared to the stark black acrylic counterpart on the ref. 6263. The black dial has faded perfectly, with a hint of anthracite grey which reminds me of a blackboard. While I do like a creamy patina on the lume in general, on this watch, the paleness of the patina goes well with the black and white color. And the touch of red on the “Daytona” logo right above six is what makes this watch sing for me. Red is such a powerful color, and when used against a monochromatic background, even the smallest amount has a great impact. And this AAA high-quality replica Rolex, with the caliber 727, still gives me the satisfaction of winding the watch manually.
Considering this watch is from 1983 and thinking about which other best fake watches were being produced at the time, again I love how perfect UK sale replica Rolex kept to their core design and they did not budge. This Daytona has truly stood the test of time. A man or a woman can wear this watch today, and it doesn’t particularly look too new or too old or too anything, it’s just a nice solid watch that wears well on the wrist, it just is.
