    Help with purchasing Rolex Daytona Rainbow

    Hello!
    I've never purchased a rep watch before,
    I'm looking at purchasing a watch from intime03 (https://www.intime03.co/rollie/5680-...let-a4130.html) and I'm not sure which movement to go with or if this the ideal supplier to go with.
    If anyone could give me some first time advice, would be greatly appreciated!

    There are some other option you can look at here

    https://dtime.store/search.php

    Type Rainbow in the search box and click the magnifying glass

    D-time is not a TD, but Ryan at Intime is a great choice of dealer. Just send him a link of the one you want, he can source it from another website.

    The one you linked looks kind of cheap, but face it any of these won't hold a candle to gen plus everyone will know immediately that YOU (or I) would never be able to afford this. The real one is $96K. The one listed at Intime has only 5 or 6 colors of glass stones in the bezel, no gradations of color like the D-Time ones.

    All of these are going to have either inop chronos or an A7750 movement where using the chronos is a gamble on whether or not you break the movement. Also they will be noticeably and disgustingly thicker than the gen and the Noob, if using an A7750.

    The only Daytona with properly functioning chronos is the Noob with a true clone 4130 movement and they don't make a Rainbow model yet, probably never will.

      Those watches listed on DTime are exact the same one on Intime. They are NOT any better. DTime just use stock gen photo for their cover listings.

          Still, there is another choice of dial. I did forget to mention that D-time uses a gen photo in the first pic on their row of pics. Look at the rest of the row to see what you would be buying.

          +1 Hor-Fan on the monstrosity!

          The other dial choice has a different bezel with more gradations of color like the gen

              Thanks a lot for the informative reply. It sounds like these aren’t good value for money, as someone quite new to this what would you reccomend looking into from the Rolex line as a first watch?

                  You'll have to choose a model you want. Submariner is always a safe choice for your first rep. Most of us end up with several.

                  Look here for some choices

                    Seriously, get what you like and what speaks to your sense of style. Just don’t buy a rep that you will be self-conscious about wearing, otherwise you won’t enjoy it. An obvious fake is uncomfortable to wear.
