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.

Rolex does not engrave the case back. If it says 24 hours at Daytona, or wording like that, the watch is not real... It's a fake, or as we say more kindly.. It's a replica, and can be bought on any replica watch web site for $30 to $80, for an automatic mov't., 21J, made in China.
Also, the sub-dials will not function on this watch. A Daytona needs the proper movement to operate the chronograph as it was intended..... To act as a stopwatch.. and measure time... seconds, minutes and hours. This is done by activating pushers at 2 and 4 positions, and the pushers on 21J replicas just don't operate a chron. for the purpose of measuring time. They may move and measure something else, like military time, or the date, but definitely not record seconds, minutes or hours. There are also no manuals on how to operate the Daytona that comes with these replica watches. You should know how this watch functions and how to operate the pushers, and what they do before you should buy and enjoy this type of chronograph watch. It's simple, just take the time to ask people in the know... how the daytona works, what the sub-dials measure and how to use them, etc. In no time you'll understand the operation of this beautifully made watch. Unfortunately, a daytona is out of reach for most of us... That's why seeking out a quality rolex replica for much less money is the way to go if you love this watch... A quality one can look, feel, and function just as good as the authentic Daytona, and you won't have to out out over $10K to get one.

This is one sign it maybe real. Everything from the solid headpieces, double steel pins, crew together band, gas relief valve, etc. can be signs that this is a real Rolex. Your best bet is always to go to a Rolex dealer or qualified watch maker/technician for an inspection. Good luck!

Thank you for contacting FixYa.
1. Rolex watches don't tick! An immediate way to tell if a Rolex is authentic is to listen to it. If it's ticking, it's definitely a fake!
2. Genuine Rolexes are made from very sturdy materials. For this reason, they are going to feel heavy in your hand. Your fakes are constructed from cheap, less-durable materials, and because of this, are usually very light. A real Rolex will have bands that are full and solid. Knock-offs will usually have links that are hollow, which is why they weigh so very little.
3. Rolexes have a smooth and continuous second hand movement. Another way to tell if a Rolex is authentic is if the second hand jerks as it travels around the face. If it does, it's a textbook fake.
4. Rolexes have a crystal bubble called a "Cyclops Magnification Bubble." This crystal bubble magnifies the date 2.5 times. Your fakes will usually be off-center and made of glass, and only offer 1.5 times the magnification.
5. Another sure way to tell is to look at the lettering and numbers. If you look at these with a jeweler's loupe, every line and edge will be perfect and precise. On a fake, the lettering edges will not be clean. Serial numbers and case numbers will often look as though they were sand-blasted, or will not be etched cleanly into the surface. Any imperfection will tell you right away if the Rolex is authentic.
6. All Rolexes feature a hologram sticker on the back. This sticker features the Rolex Crown and case reference number. Counterfeits will have the sticker, but it will not be holographic.
7. Certain models of Rolexes have an extra seal called a "Triplock Crown Seal." This feature is common to your Daytona and Submariner models and is found between the winding tube's threads. It will be missing on all of your replicas.
8. Rolexes have a micro-etched crown. Etched into the crystal just below the 6 o'clock position is a tiny crown. The mark is so small that it can only be seen under magnification. The detail on this micro-etching is perfect, making it impossible for the imitations to duplicate.
9. Knock-offs will usually have a glass, or "skeleton" case back. Genuine Rolexes will never have a clear or see-through case back. This should be a dead giveaway and will immediately tell you if the Rolex is authentic.
10. Rolexes have a face that is composed of sapphire crystal. Faux watches will usually use regular glass instead. Because of the extremely smooth surface, water dropped onto the sapphire crystal face of a true Rolex will always bead up. On a fake, the water will simply spread across the face and will not bead up.
Best regards. Jewel
