Hands-On: Rolex Daytona ‘Eye Of The Tiger’ Or ‘Rorschach Test’ Diamond Set Watch Replica 116588TBR

Rolex has one of the longest track records of consistently, if not frequently, making outlandish and creatively designed watches. Seeing 2018’s Rolex Daytona Rainbow almost triple in value, from its $90,000 retail well into the $200,000 range is just one of many fitting examples. Now, let’s enjoy the latest iteration of outlandish, factory diamond-set Rolex Daytona watches with the Rolex Daytona 116588TBR replica, nicknamed “Eye Of The Tiger Daytona”.

“Tiger Eye” Dial

The new Rolex Daytona watch fake has a bezel set with 36 trapeze-cut diamonds while the dial is diamond pave with this interesting structure of yellow gold. Revolution magazine dubbed this one the Eye of the Tiger, as the dial should remind us somewhat of a tiger. Let’s just hope it isn’t a panther. The Arabic numerals ’15’, ’30’ and ’45’ are also made of yellow gold. The other hour markers, except the Rolex crown logo at 12 o’clock, are diamond-set as well.


Oysterflex Strap

Instead of a leather strap, this reference comes on their Rolex Oysterflex strap. Rolex also used this strap for their Yacht-Master 42 this year. This strap was introduced by Rolex in 2015 already, on Rolex Everose gold Yacht-Master watch replica 116655. An incredibly comfortable rubber strap, with a patented cushion system on the inside, ensuring the strap offers maximal comfort on the wrist.

18k Yellow Gold Case

This 40mm Rolex Daytona watch replica is made of 18-carat yellow gold, based on the gold Daytona with reference 116518. Turning the watch around, you’ll see a normal gold Daytona. Clean and solid gold case back with the typical incisions for watchmaker’s equipment. The lugs have gold marking on the inside, except for one that has a little Rolex crown engraved. The Rolex Oysterflex strap closes with an 18-carat yellow gold folding clasp with flip-lock, of course.

Caliber 4130 Movement

The Daytona ‘Eye of the Tiger’ replica is powered by their in-house developed caliber 4130 chronograph movement, like basically any other modern Rolex Cosmograph Daytona in the catalogue. A self-winding movement that offers a power-reserve of 72 hours and has chronometer precision. Better yet, it is regulated (after the movement has been chronometer certified and cased) by Rolex to a maximum daily average deviation of -2 and +2 seconds a day.
