Rolex is simply my favorite watchmaker so it should come as no surprise that I’m back with another one of my Rolex replica watch reviews. Today, as you might have already guessed, we’ll be doing a Rolex Daytona Mastermind replica video review. In fact, this watch is very similar to the one in my previous Rolex Daytona replica review I did a while back. But it has just a few added twists. You can buy it here.
The Rolex Daytona Mastermind Replica Review
The Mastermind series come in many variants but the one I chose for review is the Rolex Daytona black dial. As you might already know, I love single-toned or dual-toned watches and this Rolex Daytona Mastermind replica is as single toned as they come. So, without further ado, let’s proceed with the Rolex Daytona Mastermind replica review.
So, to get started with this Rolex Daytona Mastermind replica video review, there are a few things about this black Rolex Daytona that makes it quite unique right from the start. When I say black, I mean black all through. It is a watch that is best appreciated up close. I particularly love the skull under the Rolex logo on the dial. It renders it as a very limited edition type of watch. There are quite a few of these Rolex Daytona Mastermind replicas. But this pirate edition is my favorite and among the best replica Rolex Daytona watches I’ve seen.
There are three sub-dials on the face of the watch and they are very subtly displayed that they don’t look like they have their own separate mechanisms. The chronographs are for hour, minute and seconds. The hour markers are all elevated silver rectangles freeing up more real estate on the dial that would have been occupied by numbers. The 12-hour mark is replaced by the regal Rolex logo. The hour, minute and second hands are all silver and very visible in contrast against the black dial. By now, you must be wondering where the date window is. Unfortunately, there is no date window which is quite disappointing. The bezel is all black with tachymeter markings. The crown is black too displaying the Rolex logo and is flanked by two round push buttons on either side.
It’s always a pleasure to see a kinetic movement on any replica watch but I was very happy that this Rolex sports Japanese Miyota automatic movement. As I always point out in my reviews, and this Rolex Daytona Mastermind replica video review is no different, battery operated watches are not necessarily inferior. This is just a personal preference that I may exaggerate sometimes as a big fan of kinetic watches.
The case of the watch is ion-plated stainless steel and so is the bracelet which is 190mm long and 20mm wide. The bracelet ends in the signature Rolex deployment and security clasp with the Rolex logo. The watch’s all black color does make me wonder about its versatility as a fashion statement watch. It doesn’t attract attention and if that’s what you are looking for, you might want to try something flashier. That being said, the discerning eye will still appreciate this watch from a distance.
That’s about it for my Rolex Daytona Mastermind replica video review. But before I wrap it up, I’ll give it a rating and highlight its strongest point and major failing in my opinion. The watch’s strongest feature is the design and uniqueness. It is really different from most other Rolex replica watches, especially with the skull/pirate theme. The watch’s major flaw is the absence of a date window. This would not have been so obvious if it didn’t have other features like the chronographs and extra push buttons. So, my overall rating of this watch is a pretty good 78%. It’s certainly a watch I would recommend.
