Rolex Daytona Platinum 116506 Hands-On

As I keep saying, thehttp://www.modserap.com/rolex-replica-australia-for-sale.html was created to be a very good dive Rolex, and by measuring the features of its design and functions it certainly is. I will start with the basics, the finely milled case is 42mm wide in titanium (no Rolex watches are) and is water resistant (again) to 500 meters. In addition to titanium there is some Steelinox in the case (probably for parts of the deployant and inside the case). The case has an automatic helium release valve, and an impeccable rotating diver's bezel. I will venture to say that the clicking action when rotating the bezel is actually better than a hublot big bang king replica. Both watches feature ceramic bezel inserts but the Pelagos has a more austere looking matter ceramic bezel. The numerals and markers in the bezel are likewise lumed... and the lume is of the highest quality in my experience.
I can't say enough good things about the quality of the case. The angles are so precise and the polishing is so good, it just sort of makes fun of others that are made on less sophisticated machines. Then again, backed with the power of the industrial wonder that is rolex Submariner replica au, Rolex is sort of cheating. A careful inspection of the case allows you to see these details and the precision of the CNC machines used to cut the cases. Look for example at the tiny, but perfect "teeth" around the edge of the bezel.
The dial has a flat AR coated sapphire bezel over it which allows for a clear view of the dial when looking at it straight on. AR coating is applied to only the bottom of the crystal I believe. The dial is a high-contrast black and white multi-level face with large hands and hour indicators. Rolex aficionados will recognize the historic "snowflake" hour hand design. The design of the hands and hour markers marginally reminds me of the angular dial of the Sinn U1. Though, this is a very different dial on the Pelagos. What you have is hour indicators and hands that look like filled in, blocky, non-showy versions of those on a Submariner. Lume coats all the hours and hour markers and is excellent in its bright blue color. I like that there is a lumed point on the seconds hand and that the dial is very useful with full minute markers but nothing unnecessary. Good to have the date as well. It must have been a tough choice to be so "utilitarian," but Rolex opted for a 100% monochromatic dial without a single "accent" color to spoil the tool Rolex feel. The more I look at the Pelagos the more I think it is like the Submariner's brother that goes home at night to work out, rather than out to party.
