The Replica Rolex Datejust II for Father’s Day

Rolex Datejust II

Different from the Submariner, the replica Rolex Datejust is a greater dressier alternative that equally highlights the masterful engineering and finishing of all things Rolex. With case sizes ranging from a compact 34mm up to a pretty more contemporary 41mm, there is a Datejust model out there to suit all wrist sizes and aesthetic preferences. What’s more, the model range is by far the broadest in the brand’s collection, providing an array of watches to choose from in steel, gold, or two-tone configuration, with a baton, Roman numeral, or even diamond-set indices. Because the collection is so broad, it would be unfair to narrow the Datejust down to a single reference.
The smooth-bezel Datejust II 116300 has a little bit of appeal on account of its slightly less flashy aesthetic when compared to its fluted bezel siblings. On the other hand, there’s a fair level of appeal to rocking a piece that speaks more to the Datejust’s roots – such as the stainless steel and yellow gold Datejust 116233 with a fluted bezel and champagne dial. This classic two-color aesthetic paired with Rolex’s signature features, such as the gold groove bezel and the Silver Jubilee bracelet, creates a truly timeless design that helps make this configuration instantly recognizable as a Rolex watch. 
The Rolex Explorer II is firmly on the tool/utility side of the brand’s catalog; however, its thinner case profile and flatter fixed bezel help make it a fair bit more versatile if you’re looking to tuck under a shirt cuff. The Explorer II was a serious departure for Rolex when it first launched in 1971, created specifically with explorers, adventurers, and spelunkers in mind.
A heavy application of luminous material on its indices and hands, and a 24h indication using an oversized hand are important elements of its design that still carry forward to the present day (though past references scaled-down the 24h hand size for a brief period). In addition to its large orange hands, the IE II is arguably one of the more low-key Rolexes on the market, as its case and bracelet are specially made of stainless steel, and its entire surface is brushed rather than highly polished like countless other watches.
Offering dual timezone functionality via its independently adjustable hour hands, the Explorer II makes an ideal companion for both travel and everyday use. Occasionally referred to as a Rolex replica for a non-Rolex guy, the Explorer II is a fantastic choice for someone on the market for a truly versatile daily wearable watch that will last a lifetime.
