The Project X DS7 Custom Paul Newman Rolex Daytona and the other, colorful variations are as though some of the pieces from our “Watch What-If” series became real. I mean, sure, there are some varieties and colors to be had, but with certain brands, you are just not likely to see something that is, shall we say, a bit wilder than the rest of the lineup. Cheap Rolex Replica is a perfect example of this: despite the seemingly massive interest in newer designs, unless you head to some of the aftermarket customizers, you will not be able to get your hands on a lime green Submariner or a “tribute,” vintage-inspired Rolex straight from the company. The chaps over at Project X, an independent company providing customizations to original brand manufacturers’ watches, have tackled a particular Rolex that we do not often see customized: the Rolex Daytona.
Apparently, this is not their first rodeo with the Rolex Daytona either. Back in 2010, they had three limited-edition series, which easily sold out. As with their prior foray, this latest grouping still gives a tip of the hat to the Cheap Rolex Daytonas of the 1960s. They have replaced the bezel with a carbon black finished one, and around back, they have installed a display caseback (sapphire crystal, of course), with your Project X Custom Rolex Daytona purchase also including the original solid caseback.
What likely will attract the most attention are the Project X Custom Rolex Daytona dials this lineup has. Project X has associated these, appropriately so, to cars that are rather at home on the race track. You have the DS4 in Bugatti Blue, the DS5 with a British Racing Green dial, and the DS6 with GTO Red. Frankly, it is the dials that set these apart – if you are on the hunt for a Rolex Replica Watches like this, you already know the ins and outs of the watch itself.
The latest addition to the DS line-up is the Project X Custom Rolex Daytona DS7. As the brand describes it, “vintage watch enthusiasts will immediately recognize the look & feel of the original iconic ‘so called’ Paul Newman Rolex Daytona’s from the 1970s.” Project X has done a similar project some six years ago and they say that has been their most successful edition to date – and it’s easy to see why. Original Paul Newman Cheap Rolex Replica Daytonas have been selling for hundreds of thousands of dollars as resale values skyrocketed on the auction market. And while that price increase is for another discussion, the iconic design of the 70s Rolex Daytonas is something many would like to enjoy, but – tough we need not say this – a lot fewer can afford.
While the Rolex Pearlmaster is generally considered a lady’s watch, this new 39mm-wide model does have a distinct feminine touch, but is also something that I know for a fact will appeal to male customers in various parts of the world. For that reason, I feel more than comfortable putting on what is essentially a woman’s watch that is, for at least some clients, good enough for a man. Of course, this is an interesting phenomenon, as most lady’s watches are actually smaller versions of men’s watches, and the reverse is quite uncommon.
So, let’s discuss the movement for a moment. I actually recommend anyone keenly interested in the movement to read our above discussion on the Cheap Rolex Replica watches. I referred to those watches as perhaps the finest timepieces that Rolex has produced to date. What makes the 3235 movement special is how dedicated it is to accuracy. In addition to the standard COSC Chronometer rating given to each individual movement, Rolex now employs their own barrage of tests to ensure accuracy and reliability over time – that they simply call the “Rolex Chronometer Tests.”Above, I mentioned the ceramic inserts in the Cheap Rolex Pearlmaster bracelets. Let me explain that these inserts aren’t something you can see, but are rather hidden within the construction of the bracelet. The purpose of the ceramic inserts is to prevent any gold “stretching” that can sometimes occur over long periods of time where due to the softness of the metal, the links slowly deform. The ceramic inserts also protect the links from wearing over time as they fold over one another.
At 39mm wide, the new larger Rolex Replica Watches case loses the “Lady” designation and now feels like something that men would feel comfortable wearing. There are going to be plenty of people on this post complaining that no man should be seen wearing this timepiece, and I won’t argue with them, as that is a matter of taste. These would not be my first choice of stone-decorated Rolex watch, but the bold colors and beautiful detailing simply got me curious about wearing them.Rolex intentionally played with color, doing things such as having a blue to yellow/green gradient or purple to blue. These are exercises in color and gem-setting that just happen to mark the debut of the new 39mm-wide version of the Rolex Datejust Pearlmaster. While in the West, these would no doubt represent timepieces for women, there will be male buyers in the East, for sure.
Rolex has been on an interesting kick lately, debuting new movement technology in very high-end watches – often with precious stones. For example, last year in 2014, Rolex debuted their silicon Syloxi balance wheels in the new women’s Datejust collection. Here, again, you see the debut of the 3235 automatic movement that will likely inhabit more mainstream Rolex Datejust watches in the future, but presented in the glamorously niche Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust Pearlmaster 39 watch collection.
