Les Artisans De Genève La Montoya fake Rolex Daytona Watches

As a chronograph, the Rolex Daytona has few equals. It is made to an extremely high standard with sturdy 904L Oystersteel, a Cerachrom bezel that is super wear-resistant and never fades, and of course that highly reliable caliber 4130 movement within. But you know what’s the problem with it? Its own success has made it all too familiar. It might have a long waiting list at the boutiques, but replica rolex watches you can always spot a couple in big cities and major airports. How can one satisfy his desire for the Daytona but still have something that is distinctive? It’s not your only such option, but I suggest taking a look at the new Les Artisans De Genève La Montoya Rolex Daytona, a highly customized Rolex Daytona made especially for racer extraordinaire Juan Pablo Montoya.


Montoya, who has enjoyed success in Formula 1, NASCAR, and IndyCar, is a big fan of the Rolex Daytona, as it turns out. You would be too if you had managed to win a couple through racing. Montoya won the Rolex 24 three times and was gifted a Rolex Daytona each time to celebrate and commemorate his win. In total, Montoya said he has about seven or eight Rolex Daytonas, but what he really wanted was a Daytona that was unlike any other. This is where Les Artisans De Genève come in.
Les Artisans de Genève is no stranger to customizing Rolex Daytonas. The Tribute To Rolex Daytona 6263 and Kravitz Design KL01 are fine examples of the kind of work that they do, but the La Montoya is probably the most extreme yet. The La Montoya begins life as a bog standard stainless steel Rolex Daytona. The 40mm stainless steel case is mostly untouched, and the La Montoya retains the Daytona’s chunky screw-down pushers and Triplock crown. Les Artisans De Genève did not disclose whether the base watch is the older 116520 or the newer 116500, but the tachymeter has been replaced with a forged carbon one.


Look at the dial, however, and you will notice that everything has changed. The La Montoya features a heavily skeletonized dial and movement. The counters have been replaced with ones that wear the colors of Colombia – Montoya’s home country. The chronograph counter hands have also been swapped for pencil-shaped ones that are color-matched to the counter. Finally, the tip of the central chronograph seconds hand is given a red sandblasted finish. The only things that are untouched are the white gold hour and minute hands.
The caliber 4130 within has been thoroughly skeletonized and it is visible through a sapphire display caseback, which is yet another modification to the watch. The entire movement was disassembled, skeletonized, and finished by hand so that the bridges now have hand-beveled edges. The basic construction remains, such as the column wheel, as well as certain traits unique to Rolex such as the red anodized wheels. The rotor has been swapped too for one that is made out of 22k grey gold. It’s a unique choice for a rotor material, though I must say that the design of the rotor reminds me of that of some Miyotas.

Rolex Submariner 116610LV In Green Watches

The Rolex Submariner Date reference 116610LV, aka “Hulk,” is the Rolex Submariner we all know and love (there are always dissenters, I imagine) but with a green Rolex Submariner Date ref. 116610LV 40mm wide ceramic bezel and green dial. It commands a price premium over the more traditional black ceramic bezel and matching black dial “classic” Rolex Submariner 116610LN reference model and further exists in the interesting pantheon of green Rolex watches that have often been released as special anniversary pieces for the brand.


As is the case with many timepieces that I eventually end up being very fond of, the green-dialed Rolex Submariner was not a timepiece I was immediately enamored with when it was first debuted in 2010. It was hardly that I didn’t like it – especially as I am pretty sure green is my favorite color – but rather that I was a bit ambivalent towards it. I believe my thinking at the time was that the black-dialed Submariner was so good, it was going to be tough to convince consumers to get green instead of black, or to ask them to pony up and buy both. I also want to note that while the green “Hulk” Rolex Submariner 116610LV isn’t a limited edition, it’s not the type of watch Rolex will make forever. Its popularity has kept it in production, but Rolex could quietly stop making it at any time without notice or reason.


Over the years, I’ve admired the green Submariner from afar seeing it on fellow watch lovers, celebrities, and even hearing some people criticize it. Someone whose taste I admire even called it “uncool.” Mind you, at the time, this person was wearing a Rolex (a vintage Daytona on a bund-style cuff strap) so they weren’t exactly hostile to the brand. I believe their reasoning was that in their opinion wearing the green-dialed Rolex Submariner 116610LV came across to him as though someone was “trying too hard.” Trying too hard to what? Well, perhaps stand out or be unique.
That’s sort of funny if you think about it because the Rolex Submariner is among the most copied watches in the world. Nevertheless, I’ve never worn anything that feels the same as an authentic Rolex Submariner on the wrist, nor that has the same visual impact, especially the brushed finishing on the bracelet and the pristine detailing of the dial. At 40mm wide, it is the smallest sport watch I will wear.

fake Rolex Explorer 214270 watches

It was back in mid-November 2016 when, for no reason at all of course, I decided that I needed some retail therapy to help me get out of the inexplicably dark mood I was in. So, what does a watch lover do when they need retail therapy? Go replica Rolex watches shopping, of course. After consulting with all my aBlogtoWatch and fellow enthusiast buddies, I was down to two options: a Rolex Explorer II Ref. 216570 black dial or the ubiquitous Rolex Submariner Ref. 114060 no date (if I could get an Explorer II with no date, I’d likely have opted for that).


I’m not going to keep the mystery going here, but after I made my decision I talked to one of the consummate watch professionals whom I entrust for purchases, George Mayer over at Govberg Jewelers. Shortly after that I had my Explorer II on the wrist and I couldn’t be happier. However, the decision was tougher than I had imagined and, in an ideal world, I would have gotten both the Explorer II and the Submariner. Here, I’m going to attempt to objectively compare the two watches to help make this decision a little easier for anyone out there struggling with the same choice.


It’s no secret that steel sports watches are the “it” pieces at the moment (writing this in early 2018, for posterity) with ceramic replica Rolex watches Daytonas and Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711s trading at thousands of dollars above their asking prices. This is a topic of justified frustration from a lot of watch enthusiasts who simply want to pay a fair price for a watch they want but unfortunately market trends and inventory can make getting some models nearly impossible, and the recently introduced steel Pepsi GMT is going to be another impossible to find model trading at way above retail.
Some time ago, our David Bredan did a head-to-head of the Submariner 114060 and the Tudor Heritage Black Bay. This is a little different as there isn’t one solid value proposition, but I will cite David’s piece throughout this article when it comes to the Submariner. So, without further ado let’s take a look at the sale Rolex Explorer watches 114060 vs. the replica Rolex watches Explorer II 216570.


Civen the buzz and angelic choral singing surrounding the new ceramic-bezel Rolex Daytona, we’ll give you a pass if you didn’t notice that sale Rolex Explorer watches quietly updated the Rolex Explorer. A subtle update, this refreshed Rolex Explorer features a set of fully lumed numerals and a re-sized handset, marking a course correction for one of replica Rolex watches most recognizable and enticing entry-level models. The Rolex Explorer has long stood as the entry point for Rolex’s most sporting group of watches, and it’s easy-wearing charm and versatile design belies its history as one of the brand’s most prolific adventure companions. This newly refreshed iteration is a practical and useful nod to the Rolex Explorer’s roots as a sport watch and adds some much-needed refinement to the modern design.
While the reference number remains unchanged as 214270, a closer look will suggest a considerable refresh against the current generation that was announced in 2010. The 2016 Rolex Explorer retains the 39mm sizing and, being a Rolex sport model, the case uses their 904L steel. The movement also remains unchanged, with the replica Rolex watches running Rolex’s 3132 Superlative Chronometer automatic movement, with 48 hours of power reserve, a Parachrom blue hairspring and Paraflex shock absorption.
With a minimal and function-driven aesthetic like that of the Rolex Explorer, it doesn’t take much to unbalance the design. The previous version (the 214270 up to Baselworld 2016) wore beautifully, but in the move from 36mm (reference 14270) to 39mm, some of the magic was lost. We saw the unfortunate shortening of the minute hand which was a bit too short to fill the dial or reach the minute track. With the new 214270, the Rolex Explorer returns to the proportions and design of the 14270.
Those brightly polished arabic numerals are out, replaced by lume-filled versions similar to those seen in previous generations. While this is a small change, considering both the sporting and flexible intention of a watch like the Rolex Explorer, lume is important and should be an integral element in the Rolex Explorer’s design. Additionally, consider the Rolex Explorer’s roots. Today’s sale Rolex Explorer watches design is based on the 1016 replica Rolex watches which was launched in 1963 with painted numerals to offer as much glow as possible, a goal mirrored in this 2016 version.
Eagle-eyed types will likely notice the slightly updated handset, which is now slightly larger overall and features a longer minute hand. While the previous version’s minute hand was not terrible, its proportions were off, and this change is nothing if not welcome. The hands and markers feature a blue variant of Rolex’s Chromalite lume and the glow is similar to what you get from a Rolex Submariner or sale Rolex Explorer watches . With a sporting lifestyle in mind,
