Master Stroke -- Part 1 of The Replcia Rolex Day-Date Watches

There was also a yellow-gold version. The steel version had the same case dimensions as the gold watch. However, the Bakelite bezel was brown and it did not have the Pepsi colour scheme. This was a perfect match for the matching dial and hands in gold.Bell & Ross Replica Watches These hands were not the Mercedes pattern hands found on the steel version. They were a more elegant, dressier version that is more common on Day-Dates and Datejusts. Also, the dials have hour markers in yellow-gold with small luminous dots in their middle. These are now called "nipple dials".

Second Wave

Rolex introduced the second series GMT-Master in 1959. This reference would continue until 1980. 1675. The new 1530 series movement was featured in this new reference, which was the case for the GMT-Master: Calibre Calibre 1565. Crown guards were the most distinctive feature of the new watch. The case was now 40mm in length (not including the crown guards). It was also available in stainless steel (1675/0), and yellow gold (1675/8).Rolex Submariner Replica The crown guards were not included in the yellow gold watch cases until 1967. Although the case was larger at 40mm, it looked more elegant due to its lack of crown guards. Rolex introduced an aluminium insert standard on their ref. 1675. The steel watch had a standard Pepsi bezel, while the yellow-gold version had a brown insert. Two crown guard versions were also used on the 1675. Collectors refer to the first iteration as either pointed crown guards, (PCG), or cornino in Italian. The guards' thin profile was the reason. As used by Submariners, the later version is thicker and more rounded.
