Item received was not new and had an unauthentic bracelet,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Rolex Daytona White Index Dial Oyster Bracelet Mens Watch 116520WSO (Watch)
I was so disappointed after waiting a long time to receive this item. It came in the wrong Rolex box with a manual for a different watch that was printed more than seven years ago. The watch was clearly not new with scratches and the worst part is the bracelet had been switched and had on it the newer style case but with an old braclet that according to the Rolex dealer was likely not authentic. I could not believe frankly what was sent. I contacted the seller and after several calls finally was told to return it. Stay away from this purchase and only buy a new watch that is complete. So disappointing!

This review is from: Rolex Daytona White Index Dial Oyster Bracelet Mens Watch 116520WSO (Watch)A great watch from a great manufacturer, at least now that they manufacture their own movements. But why would you pay substantially over retail for ANY watch? Just for cache? You can have the stainless AND gold Daytona for less money, same movement and a lot of gold in the watch. Having said that, this is a very large and impressive if not somewhat clunky watch with a busy dial and the subdials can be a bit tough to read with us older people. So be sure it looks good on your wrist and you are happy with the legibility before purchasing. I also own the new Explorer II release with the new calibre movement and it's almost too big for me. Decide why you need the chronograph complication. It will not be cheap to maintain and adds initial cost. There are better movements (and value) out there but there is no substitute for the Rolex name. It's iconic, affordable and holds value really well. Lastly, make sure you know the date of manufacture. Rolex has issued new movements over... Read more

Rare, collectible, and prestigious,

This review is from: Rolex Daytona White Index Dial Oyster Bracelet Mens Watch 116520WSO (Watch)I bought my ss Daytona this past year and it has been my go-to watch almost everyday. It has a tremendous feel of quality and it just looks great with a suit or casual dress. I have gotten quite a few compliments from the sales crew at the finer watch stores; even some of them haven't seen this watch up close and personal. With that said, if you are not a vip at an authorized dealer, expect to pay a hefty premium over msrp when buying through another source. And do expect the watch to appreciate in value via regular price increases and its exclusivity.
The only complaint I have with the watch is that it is missing a date complication. But once I put it on and enjoy the look of its timeless design and the substantial feel on my wrist, all complaints about the date complication goes away.
So if you are fortunate enough to buy one, you should go ahead and do so. Wear it for a few years and if you don't like it you can probably sell it for at least what you... Read more
