Question about Rolex Watches
The daytona you describe that has 24 hours at Daytona on the back is a relatively cheap replica daytona. It probably has a 21J japanese or chinese movement, and will probably not last very long under normal wear. The better ones out there are about $100, but you can get them for much less. The chronos do not function as the genuine daytona. The move and measure something, but who knows what.
So, this is a cheap imitation of the rolex daytona, and by no means is the best replica out there. There are better ones available with asian copies of the valjoux 7750 movement. These movements also vary in quality from the cheaper ones that run at 21,600bph, or the more upgraded mov'ts @28800bph. These have the running seconds at 6 position and hours at the 9 position.
You can search the web for a dealer that sells these better daytonas. Prices van start at around $190.00 and run up to more than $650.00 for the same watch and mov't. Depends on the dealer.. So, shop with knowledge and ask many questions before you ever purchase. You can get a reliable replica with automatic movement, depending on what model you're looking for... for less than $300. The SS series 116520 you can get a genuine looking replica for $140 to $223.

The quickest way to spot a fake Rolex is by the second hand. Is the second hand ticking or sweeping. If it's ticking it's fake. A real Rolex's second hand moves around the dial in one continuous movement.
Check for a small engraved crown on the crystal at 6 o'clock. Most fakes will have something similar. The difference is that the crown on a real one is almost impossible to see by just your eye.
Look for the word "Rolex" and the watch's serial number engraved at 6 o'clock under the crystal on the area between the crystal and the dial. While many fake Rolex watches post-2005 have this feature, they're usually printed, not engraved.
Most other ways relate to newer Rolex watches.
Hope this helps and hope it's the real deal.
