At a certain point, it feels like Adam simply stopped caring about what the often cranky world of serious copy watch collectors told him he must own, and decided to just start having fun. He’d seen some of the custom pieces the folks at Artisans de Geneve have done, and one night while laying in bed, he decided to email them out of the blue with the idea for his own perfect replica Rolex Daytona.
After months of emails and Zoom calls, Adam and AdG founder John Isaac came up with the idea of a single gold 1:1 fake Rolex Daytona with screw down pushers and white, Paul Newman-style dial – similar to the 6263 featured above – but with their own tweaks. You see skeletonized sub dials, and a WHITE bezel. On top of that, the entire dial and bezel are luminous, so they light up in the dark.
Adam describes this project and the resulting Rolex replica for sale as one of the most rewarding things he’s done, and in many ways, it flies in the face of all the traditional watch nerdery that he’s subscribed to for so long – and that’s probably why it feels so good. This Swiss movement fake Rolex is his, in every single way, and it was born out of things that he loves for his own reasons. And there’s something beautiful about that.
