Trying to identify a Daytona

Sorry I don't have a picture. I have run across a good opportunity to purchase a Daytona. The seller is trustworthy but isn't sure of it's authenticity herself. The things that are in question are as follows. The right sub dial has every other number from 1 to thirty one. The lower sub dial has every other number of 24hr time. Left sub dial has abbreviations for all seven days of the week. If anyone can tell me anything about it, it would be greatly appreciated.

It’s a fake.
If the person selling it isn’t sure about authenticity it’s a fake.
If you’ve joined here and this is your first post, it’s a fake.
If you don’t have any pictures, it’s a fake.
If it seems too good to be true, it’s a fake.


In case you aren’t sure, refer to the above.

None of the sub dials described are on a Daytona. It's either not a Daytona, or it is a fake watch of some sort.

Trying to identify a Daytona

The subdials you describe are on some of the worst fake Daytonas around.

Daytonas donít track a 24-hour scale, nor the day of the week, nor the date.
