When you invest in a Rolex Daytona green dial watch, you’re investing in a piece of history. Learn everything you need to know about buying one of these iconic watches.
The Replica Rolex Daytona has a character all its own. Originally designed for endurance racing, this watch is known for its exceptional precision. The unique history of this watch has made it one of the most sought-after exclusives in the Rolex collection.
However, when paired with Rolex’s iconic green dial, the Rolex Daytona Green Dial has become a cult classic and is considered the Holy Grail by all serious Rolex collectors. Read on to learn everything you need to know about these remarkable pieces.
Rolex introduced the Daytona in 1963 as a chronograph sports watch designed to time speed on the race track. Rolex named it after the city in Florida that was home to NASCAR’s famous Daytona 500. Initially, the Daytona was unpopular as many watch enthusiasts did not find it appealing.
However, that all changed when Joanne Newman, wife of actor and race car driver Paul Newman, gifted him one of these fine watches. He infamously wore this watch throughout his racing career. Soon the Rolex Daytona was in the arms of countless celebrities, including Jay-Z, Jonah Hill, Michal Jordan and a host of other influential people. Newman’s Rolex Daytona sold at auction in 2017 for $17.8 million, making it the most expensive watch ever made.
However, it didn’t reach cult status until singer, songwriter and watch enthusiast John Mayer wore one of the watches. By 2019, it had sold out and was highly sought after among celebrities, athletes and hardened watch enthusiasts. The Rolex Daytona Green Dial is sometimes referred to as the “John Mayer” Daytona or other variations of that moniker.
The Rolex Daytona is one of the most popular and unique fake Rolex watches ever made. These timepieces are time-consuming because they use the extremely complex chronograph movement Type 4130.
As a brand, Rolex excels at adding all the little details that make its watches stand out from the crowd, and the Daytona green dial is no exception. This luxury watch features a classic design, similar to the original sports watch. It has the collection’s signature three sub-dials for recording racing speeds and a solid 18k gold strap with gold hands and hour markers. Although the dial and sub-dials are green, they are highlighted by a hint of red around the sub-dials.
