The Daytona is overrated and overpriced. No way is it worth 7950.

If the Daytona is overpriced, then I don't know what makes the Sub/GMT/EXP worth their asking prices. The Daytona's movement is phenomenal. I'd wager that it costs Rolex significantly more (way more) to produce a Daytona than a Sub-C, but the MSRP difference is only around $4K?

I'm not so familiar with the horological achievement in Daytona.
Does the chronograph have a vertical clutch?

The Daytona's movement uses a column-wheel. There aren't many 28,800 bhp chronographs out there with 3-day power reserves.

Compared to the module-based movement in the ultra expensive Royal Oaks, the Daytona is superior.

Interesting.
Is this something that's generally agreed upon?
I've always heard nothing but praises for AP chronographs while hearing mixed reviews about the Daytona.

Everytime I see a 116400GV out in public I think it's halloween for some reason... I guess the color scheme reminds me of a pumpkin.

The Royal Oak chronograph uses the Frederic Piguet calibre 1185, which, as far as I am aware, is an integrated chronograph movement.

When the Daytona came out in 2000 it won just about every independent award for about 3 years in a row and is still widely considered one of the best chronograph movements available at any price range meaning it competes with movements that cost several times the price.

The very fact that you are comparing it with AP is testament to it's quality.

seams you know a lots about watches, could you help me out?
I bought a Rolex Daytona on june 2013 from an AD, when I run the serial number I find out the date of production is 2008.
is this normal, or I consider this new watch as 5 years old?
Thank-you

Well.
I wouldn't compare it to the Patek and Lange chronographs....

If you really dislike the Milgauss, why wouldn't you select the AK over it?

(BTW, I really like the white diald Milgauss, and like AKs too).

Also, I am not completely sold on any PVD Watch. Just never heard anything about the durability of the coating. Nothing would be worse than paying over $1k to get the watch coated only to get a bunch of scratches in it that show up as shiny lines!

Back when it came out, a lot of magazines and reviewers did.

Simply put, at 34mm the Air king is too small and all of the dials are bland.
I also never select anything that is bottom/cheapest of the range.
