At first glance, it’s hard not to think of a Datejust when looking at the Rolex 1625 Turn-o-Graph. After all, the dressy dial, thin stick hands, applied rectangular markers and Cyclops over the date window are pure giveaways. Of course, the word “Datejust” on the dial seals the deal as well. It’s a funny thing because I’d wager that most think of a Datejust and the fluted bezel comes to mind. So, perhaps it’s this adder of the rotating bezel that comes off as a little incongruous to some because they’re so used to seeing something else in its place when paired with such a dial. That being said, the bezel is worth a closer look.
Let’s get into a little bit of history (for more, head here to this more extensive article). The original Turn-o-Graph was introduced in 1953 and the 6202 that appeared looked an awful lot like the Submariner that was still to come. It featured a black inlay rotating bezel and was offered with either a black or white honeycomb dial. With its introduction, it was actually the brand’s first production model with a rotating bezel. These models are scarce and rather expensive as they were only made for roughly a year until being replaced by the 6309 reference. Notably, the 6309 introduced a gold metal bezel, a trait that stayed with the model until it ceased production in 2011. At this time, it also became an official sub-model within the Datejust line. Also, during the 6309’s production, the watch became the official watch of the US Air Force Thunderbirds demonstration team and took with it the “Thunderbird” nickname that was often used in American Rolex advertising. In roughly 1959, though, the Rolex 1625 Turn-o-Graph was introduced and it was produced until 1977.
When viewed up close, it’s actually a gorgeous piece of finishing that’s often tainted by wear or, somewhat offputtingly, by dirt and grime. The whole thing is cast as one piece in 18-karat gold and, therefore, the numbers are in relief at the tens along with the stick markers at the 5’s. In between, there’s fine ridging that almost makes the whole thing so bright that it’s truly difficult for the eye to take in at once. Yes, there’s that much lighting contrast. Plus, all of these topographic features become collectors of daily detritus and make themselves accessible to dents and dings. This example, as you can see, is really in lovely shape.
The Rolex Datejust was launched in 1945 and it was the first watch with a date function. The model is available in oyster and jubilee bracelets. Men watches have pink gold and yellow gold case, while women watches have stainless steel with diamonds case. The watch’s dial come with champagne, black and mother of pearl colors. The list of features include automatic winding, mechanical movement, Caliber movement with men watch, date, hours, minutes, large seconds and water resistance. Rolex Datejust replica manufacturers carefully copy each of these features.
The collection includes impressive wristwatches for men and women, being available with different face, dial and bracelets. Only 1st grade Swiss replica watches make the list. The first Rolex Datejust model was launched back in 1945. It has a date aperture and it is a waterproof gold watch. It was the very first watch to show the date. Still, the first models were made without the magnifying Cyclops eye.
Today, the market is full with Rolex Datejust replica manufacturers, who can deliver top quality replica watches that include the elegance and features of the real one, for instance the magnifying Cyclops eye and the date aperture. On the face there is the “Superlative Chronometer Certified” inscription, along with the engraved model and brand. If you are truly lucky, you might even get a replica with a fluted bezel, which is just one of the features that can differentiate a real Rolex Datejust from a replica one.
When looking for the best copies of top replica watches available, you can never go wrong in choosing Swiss manufactured replicas as they are the ones that are made from high quality materials and they are also the ones that look extremely similar to their genuine counterparts. These replicas are made from precious and semi-precious materials which make them more durable than Japanese or Chinese manufactured replicas and the mechanisms used for the watches can also be similar to that of genuine luxury watches. The price of Swiss manufactured replicas can start from $1000 or higher depending on how similar it looks like to the original.
Rolex: Seeing Red & Blue
Prior to Baselword, Monochrome, a popular website predicted 5 watches that Rolex will introduce during the said event. They posted their predictions 2 weeks before Baselworld and guess what, Monochrome was 60% correct. Take a look at their hits and misses below:
Pepsi Rolex GMT Master II
According to the website, the “Pepsi” GMT Master is something that every Rolex fan is wishing for and last year, the company introduced the GMT Master II in blue/black combination which was thus coined the Batman GMT. The writers said they were hoping for a Pepsi GMT and they aren’t expecting any aesthetic or technical changes aside from the Cerachrom bezel in red and blue.
And it did materialize. The new GMT-Master II replica has a bezel in red and blue Cerachrom insert made in a single piece, something that’s never been seen before. It has a white gold case measuring 40mm and it has a price tag of the origian is $38,250.
This is the Rolex model that has a date aperture with a Cyclops eye lens over it. It is also recognized for its fluted bezel, which you should also find in knockoffs.

This model has varying bracelets and dial colors and materials. From yellow Gold to black leather.
This model was released in 1956. It was designed for scientists who sometimes visit places with different forces in magnetic fields. The watch should be good enough to withstand 1,000 gauss. The European Council for Nuclear Research has approved of the Milgauss’ ability to do so. It has an orange second hand with shaped in a lightning bolt. These are the important features to look for in replicas.
Rolex Daytona with Red Daytona Lettering and Panda Dial
The article published on Monochrome went on to say that Cerachrom bezels are the newest trend for Rolex and they possess excellent qualities including being scratch resistant as well as being able to prevent fading. Having said this, Monochrome wanted a revival of the Daytona 6263 one of the coolest Rolex watches ever made. They predict that the Daytona will have a Panda dial and a red text that read DAYTONA, with a black bezel and screwed pushers. They also predict that it would still be a platinum case but with a black ceramic bezel.
Unfortunately Rolex didn’t launch a Daytona with the details that Monochrome predicted. Although they introduced a new Daytona, it has a platinum case, pave diamond dial, bezel set with 36 diamonds and baby blue subdials.
The Lady datejust, made from 904L stainless steel, everose white or 18ct yellow gold offers a wide variety of dials and straps allowing for a customised Rolex watch unique to the individuals tastes. Dial options include mother of pearl, meteorite, diamonds and floral combinations added to a bezel that can come adorned in diamonds, fluted or off set with diamonds.

Rolex is recognized as the pioneer of countless innovations. As early as 1945, the Geneva watch manufacturer, just to catch up with the 40th anniversary of the introduction of the Oyster Perpetual Datejust log. It’s that simple, fast-jumping calendar is a milestone in the development of watches.
1947 Rolex Diary – First Edition
One, two, three – only three hands, no longer redundant! This is Rolex’s motto for decades. Whether we are talking about pocket watches or watches, the industry has for many years only to its customers to provide three-pin table – in addition to chronograph and some rare and complex calendar watch. But in 1945, Rolex presented the first fast-track mechanism of the calendar watch.

The introduction of the silver face plate, green time standard style, Datejust II is the most visual effect of a past, Rolex never marked what style is a commemorative version, most with only the introduction of new models, such as 16610LV, 116718LN, 118348, etc. Etc., but many can be found from the different face plate design. But this section is the Datejust launch of the first 64 years, may not really have any commemorative significance, but the collection market, Rolex’s special design is valuable, Datejust II is the most worthy of consideration.
Watches are no longer a time keeping machines at present, they are fashion accessories especially for men. Well known for their fashion appearance, exquisite workmanship, sophisticated function and high-performance durability, brand replica watches are also impressive for their expensive price tags. Not every one is able to own his/her favorite watches. Even the rich are hard to own all their coveted timepieces. This facilitates the existence of replica watches which will be sharply cheaper than those original ones.
A Rolex watch is one of the most luxurious timepieces in the world. The name alone is synonymous with wealth and luxury. Due to its popularity, the Rolex watch is often counterfeited and sold to unknowing customers who think that they are getting the real thing at a good price. However, it is possible to spot these fakes and avoid purchasing them. All it takes is a thorough knowledge of the Rolex brand and a dose of common sense.
Check the “made in” sign. Most Rolex watches are made in Switzerland, which is indicated by a “Swiss Made” sign near the bottom of the watch. If the manufacturer’s mark on your watch says “made in China” or any other country with a reputation for producing cheaply-made products, you would be wise to avoid purchasing it.
Listen for a ticking sound. If the watch ticks, it’s a fake. A true Rolex does not make a traditional “tick-tock” sound like most watches.
