Several months ago, GM announced their V2 edition of Rolex Day-Date 40mm, which is heavier than the V1 and closer to genuine in weight, just about one month ago, GS factory also published this type of Rolex Day-Date with similar weight to genuine, it is the first time for GS factory to make 40mm Rolex Day-Date, they only made ladies Datejust before, I do not know why they started to make the Day-Date, perhaps they saw the big profit which GM factory has earned from the better V2 Rolex Day-Date.
Now both factories form a direct competition, maybe you will ask me which one is better, I will tell you both have a similar quality, but I still suggest you buy from GM factory, because it is one of the earliest watch manufacturers to make the best replica Day-Date.
There are two movement options for the Day-Date, one is 2836, the other is 3255, it is said that the weight of the replica with 2836 movement is about 10 grams heavier than the one with 3255 movement. The other details such as case material, bracelet material and finish are the same.
This Rolex Day-Date in the pictures is made by GS factory, its dial looks cracked, actually it is not, the dial is actually made with special stone, I do not know how to call it, the hour markers are set with diamonds, there are correct engravings on inner bezel, which is also engraved with serial number at 6 o’clock. So, if you are going to buy a box with this Rolex, you need to tell your dealer to type the correct model number and serial number on the Rolex card, or it will be meaningless to pay extra to get an original box.
Both GM and GS provide a lot of Rolex Day-Date replica watches made with 904L stainless steel, some are plated with yellow gold, some are with rose gold, the dial colors also vary, almost all genuine Day-Date models on Rolex’s official website can be found with replicas in the GM or GS’s collection. I know you concern if the replica has two important features, one is the laser crown logo in the crystal at 6 o’clock, the other is the precious metal logo and symbols on the the lugs, both genuine features can be found on the replica, by the way, if you choose the replica with a 3255 movement, then the adjusting of time, day and date will be the same as genuine watch.
