This is a cheap replica fake. No daytonas are engraved on the case back. If new and everything works... I mean it runs... then it's worth is what you are willing to pay for it. Anyone else who knows this watch would not give you much if anything for it. Maybe in a pawn shop it might fool; someone and they may pay $100 for it but that's a rip off. These watches usually have a 21J auto Japanese mov't., fairly reliable, but far from being capable of supporting the true function of running a chronograph.
Better off to search for a quality daytona replica if you like the watch, and get an automatic asian copy of the 7750 valjoux movement, running at either 21600bph or 28800 bph, where all the chrono's function and support the sub-dial true functions of counting seconds, minutes, and hours. You can get a replica Daytona of this quality and reliability if you search the web and ask lots of questions before you buy. You should not have to pay more than $250.00 for this quality of Daytona, but be careful, lots of dealers out there will advertise this same datytona for as much as $625 to $1000, and it's the same Daytona replica, from perhaps the same factory in China, have the same asian auto mov't. and they'll ask much, much more. Don't be fooled. Know who you're dealing with. Get some facts and really know the watch, and learn more of the replica watch market before you ever place an order. Read what people are saying and talking about in "Replica Watch Info." or "Replica Geek" newsletters available to all replica watch collectors and enthusiasts.
So, to sum up... If any daytona you see has 24 hrs. at daytona on the case back... beware.. a red flag say's this is fake. By the way, the case back if knurled, is removed with a common jewelers watch wrench. Some of the cheaper daytonas might even be quartz.. but most I've seen with 24hrs. at Daytona have a 21J automatic mov't.
