Do not buy counterfeit / replica watches over the internet. Do not ask me where to buy any counterfeit watches. I do not sell these watches. These pages are here to show you (A) how convincing the fake high-end watches have become and (B) that you should not buy any high-end watch from someone you do not know or trust.

Rolex Daytona 2007

I came upon this counterfeit Rolex Daytona during my travels in 2007. The real problem with the fake daytonas is this: While they use a high-quality ETA Valjoux 7750 movement, the subdails are just too far apart - It's a dead give-away. For example: I saw a Daytona just today, and I knew right away that it wasn't a fake one. The subdials were properly clustered together, closer to the center than is possible with the 7750 movement.

This fake Daytona uses an ETA Valjoux 7750 movement. The real movement used in the Daytonas are Valjoux 72 (earlier, vintage models) and the Zenith El Primero (later models). Recently Rolex has taken this movement in house. Well, fake dealers just don't have Valjoux 72's to install, and the Zenith is way too much money for them to pay, although it is available to a select few. I have seen one counterfeit Daytona that used a Zenith movement, cost was around 2500 USD.
