Rolex Day-Date 40 Watches 18k White Gold Waterproof Replica Watches

Rolex Day-Date 40 Watches 18k White Gold Waterproof Replica Watches

Earlier today we reported on the new Rolex Day-Date 40 replica watches release as soon as Rolex made the watch public, and now, we are following up with a hands-on with all versions of this new model. Having met Rolex today on the first day of Baselworld 2015 – which actually is a press day and not open to the public – not only could we see and photograph the new features on this latest release, but we also received detailed explanation about them. Let’s see, now, first-hand how the Rolex Day-Date 40 is new, and what it offers for those in the market for a dressier – albeit highly versatile – classic piece from the manufacture.

What wasn’t entirely clear at the time of the release but we now know for certain is that the Rolex Day-Date 40 does, in fact, replace the Rolex Day-Date II, tuning the “DD” down ever so slightly from 41 to 40 millimeters wide. Rolex actually refers to the Day-Date as its “most prestigious model,” and so it is no wonder the latest and arguably greatest Rolex movement is making its debut in this updated collection as well. First things first, we will discuss the new looks and then go on to discover further details of the new Rolex 3255 caliber.

18k White gold Rolex fake watches, Everose gold, 950 platinum, and 18k yellow gold – those are the four new versions the Rolex Day-Date 40 is available in, and you can see them all above. There are, of course, several different versions depending on case material, dial pattern and indices, but we have seen all four metals – as the Rolex Day-Date 40 will exclusively be available in the aforementioned materials (no steel version) – so you can get a good idea of what to expect in terms of looks.

Rolex has debuted new dial options, where the patterns are created by laser etching a sunray finished dial, making for incredibly sharp and accurate lines – of different widths, depending on the model – running across the dials. The etching is subtle when it comes to depth; it is not like guilloché that results in deeper, more three-dimensional grooves on the dials. That is not at all to say the new Rolex dials lack depth, what you get instead is the mixture of the silvery, soft glow reflected by the fine sunray finishing, rendered more visually interesting by the laser etched lines which seem to stand out more or nearly completely disappear, depending on how the light falls on the dial. The overall experience is a dial that is beautiful to look at and is extremely versatile in its appearance – with the applied indices adding some extra volume and definition, also improving legibility.

Speaking of indices, the options include the more traditional stick hour markers which are said to have improved lume – a welcome development despite the rather formal appearance of the Rolex Day-Date copy watches. On the other hand, you have the also hand-applied Roman numerals, each of which are made up of several faceted pieces of gold, resulting in a “deconstructed” look. Despite the historic flair of the Roman numerals, this design looks highly technical and perhaps a bit more masculine, particularly compared to the simple way how Roman numerals are usually constructed.

I recently ran into George Bamford – of Bamford Watch Department – who shared with me that he will soon entirely stop customizing Rolex replica watches for customers. This news is sort of a big deal given that Bamford put his name on the horological map by being the world’s premier aftermarket customizer of Rolex timepieces. Anyone in the know always thinks of Bamford when it comes to serious Rolex watch customization, and any time someone sees a black-colored Rolex, chances are the Bamford name comes to mind. While Bamford still has some Rolex watch orders to fill, one of the world’s most famous modern-day Rolex collectors is putting “the crown” behind him.

George Bamford will instead focus the majority of his time to working with Jean-Claude Biver and the LVMH Watch Division that’s under Mr. Biver’s leadership. Biver oversees Hublot and Zenith, while currently serving as the CEO of TAG Heuer. Bamford quietly debuted this relationship recently when introducing a few limited edition Zenith watches customized by the London-based timepiece modifier. It now turns out that this is just the beginning, and that Bamford will be working closely with Zenith and TAG Heuer, as well as possibly Hublot for future models.

Is this what Jean-Claude Biver means when he regularly talks about the importance of love? It certainly seems this way if you interpret “love” as also meaning “cooperation.” While Rolex is often called “the crown” (given their logo), Jean-Claude Biver is often referred to as the “king” of the watch industry. He is certainly among the most powerful. Mr. Biver’s success is often linked to his ability to cleverly create synergies where they are available. Effective cooperation is a cornerstone of Jean-Claude’s management style, which is perhaps why he was able to make such a compelling argument to George Bamford about working together. According to Jean-Claude Biver, “George (Bamford) has proven that he knows how to “tune” a watch and also that he is able to make a very classic watch into a trendy watch.”

Bamford, who was clearly excited to work more closely with Mr. Biver and his teams, shared with me the incredibly pragmatic argument presented to him by Jean-Claude Biver. It isn’t a secret that Bamford’s relationship with Rolex was tenuous at best. Bamford was not an official Rolex waterproof fake watches dealer, and in order to do business needed to purchase Rolex watches in the market, and then later modify them. Rather than support the practices of an interesting modifier, Rolex took the stance that Bamford, like all watch customizers was removing the “authenticity” of a Rolex rendering them (among other things) not eligible to be serviced by Rolex service centers. That means even though Bamford never touched the mechanics of any Rolex watch, the company itself refused to repair or service Bamford-modified Rolex watches. The move prompted Bamford to create his own service department.

If you know George Bamford, then you know just how much of Rolex copy watches mega-fan he is. The entire concept of modifying Rolex timepieces began when he wanted to change the look of a Daytona model he had. Soon Bamford became the go-to name for high-street shoppers looking for a familiar, albeit more exclusive timepiece shopping experience. Getting a totally personalized, or otherwise uncommon modified Rolex watch proved to be a winning formula for many luxury consumers seeking enhanced personality in their choice of watch.
