Rolex Day-Date 40 VS Rolex Daytona – HK Snob weighs in


With the new Rolex 116500ln Daytona Ceramic out, the attention of us is back to the Daytona. However, let’s not forget the brand’s most iconic model, the Day-Date. A new olive dial version has been released with rose gold case and bracelet. It is also available in white gold.

Some of you may have the same struggle – to go for the Day-Date or the Daytona? While the prices of the two watches may differ a lot, the Snob would like to make clear his stance on whether you should go for the Daytona or the Day-Date.


1 Price

The Rolex Day-Date 40 is way more expensive than the Daytona as there is no stainless steel version for the DD40. With that said, you will have to pay around 190k -210k (gray dealer) for a DD40. With the Daytona, if you opt for the yellow gold, white gold or the rose gold version, you will have to pay around 180k-210k (gray deader). However, the Daytona can be had in stainless steel which is around 130k right now for the 116500ln. (HK AD official list price HK$95,000)

2. Practicality

The Rolex Day-Date is a way more practical watch than the Daytona. We bet you have to know which day and date it is more than to know the duration of your drive, given that most of us are not professional race car drivers? The Rolex DD40 has the date and day display which makes everyday life way more convenient than wearing the Daytona. Moreover, let’s not forget the DD40’s 72 hours of power reserve That means you do not have to wind your watch as much as the Daytona.

3. Rarity
How often do you see people wearing the Daytona on the street? Very, right? But you do not see a lot of DD40. So, why wear the same watch that others are wearing? Stand out by wearing the DD40 is a good choice to show your elegance and special taste.

4. The bracelet.

The Daytona has a Oyster bracelet which features the Easylink extension system. Most of Rolex’s sports watches have Oyster bracelet with them. Again, it might be too common. The DD40 has a President bracelet which reflects light way better than an Oyster band. The polished center links shine like nothing else. It is more comfortable as the links are smaller, they can adjust to the shape of your wrist better.

Vintage time – Rolex Submariner 1680

The Rolex Submariner 1680 is a good choice for you to enter the world of vintage Rolex. Produced from 1966 to 1981, the Rolex 1680 has a date display window as well as a Cyclops date magnifier. These are what the 5513 does not have. Also notable is that the 1680 has the chronometer status.
The Rolex 1680 Red Submariner is named because the letters Submariner are in red. These watches are around 80k to 100k in the market. A normal 1680 great white can be had at around 50k. The most special thing about this watch is that it has a acrylic crystal which sits quite high above the bezel. It has bezel edges but it is not domed like the 5513.

Also notable is the font used on the date wheel. These old-style fonts give the watch a rather retro feeling as modern fonts are very different. The crown of the 1680 is a triplock crown which ensures 200m water resistence. Most 1680 watches have Maxi dials. The dials of the 1680 differ according to the year the watch is produced. The fonts and the spacing can be different and please beware of that. The dial of the right period has to be paired with the case of that period accordingly.
The Rolex 1680 is a very good entry level vintage Rolex. It looks different from those massively worn 16610 and 116610. If you want to add some chic to your style, it is your best choice.

God, Please give me one more minute...

God, Please give me one more minute to say again “I love you!” to my brother.


"I don't wish you all sort of gifts.

I just wish you what most people don't have:

I wish you the time to be happy and to laugh

and if you use it, you can make something out of it.

I wish you the time for your doings and thinking,

not only for yourself, but also to give away to others.

I wish you the time - not to hustle and run

but the time to be contented.

I wish you the time, not to pass just like that

I wish that some of it may be left for you

as a time to marvel and trust

instead of just looking at the time on your watch.

I wish you the time to reach for the stars

and the time to grow, to mature

I wish you the time to hope and to love

There is no sense in putting this time off.

I wish you the time to find yourself to see happiness in each day and each hour.

I wish you the time also to forgive. I wish you the time to live.                     Elli Michler

I wish you had time even one more minute such that I can say one more time “Peter, I love you forever!”


Remembrance to my beloved younger brother Peter who passed away last night.
1835 27 Jul 2016.

Buying time: HKWF’s recommendations of watches under 100k (HKD)

1.      IWC Portugieser Automatic 7 Days

The IWC Portugieser Automatic 7 Days is one of the most popular IWC models seen on the wrists of watch enthusiasts.
At a little less than 43mm, the watch has a very proper size without being too small. It gives you enough wrist presence with the very well-polished and shaped case. The thickness of 14.5 mm makes it also a watch for sportier occasions.

With formal attire, this watch complements your looks very well as the dial is finished with classic Arabic numerals. The two sub-dials display the running seconds and the power reserve, which, when fully-wound, is 7 days. At 6 o’ clock is the date window and the watch comes with a very well made alligator strap. You can also buy Santoni alligator straps from IWC. They are very impressive straps with patina you will not see elsewhere.


2.      Panerai Pam442

Panerai has been in vogue for a long time. It has brought to the world of horology some very cutting-edge elements. For example, watch size has revolutionized because of this brand. Vintage-style watch dials and patina colored numerals are also two elements brought by the brand.

The Pam422 is a very loyal iteration of the brand’s deep-rooted history with the military. The watch comes with a domed sapphire crystal and a polished bezel and case. At 47mm, it is absolutely a watch to behold when worn.

It has a manual-wound movement on which a power reserve indicator is located and can be seen through the sapphire case back. The hands are gold in color and they complement the beige numerals. This is a fun watch to have as you can wind the watch looking at the power reserve indicator and get a taste of history on your wrist. The watch comes with a Panerai assolutamente strap which is very finely textured. 


3.      Rolex Deep Sea D-blue

The Rolex Deep Sea D-blue has been a very popular watch since its release in 2014. The watch has a gradient blue-black dial with green letters “DEEPSEA”. The color combination has successfully revived a watch that would otherwise be a dull big brick on your wrist. Surely the black dial version is good looking as it looks professional.
However, the D-blue looks obviously more interesting. The ceramic bezel stands out more as there is color contrast between the dial and the bezel. The bracelet comes with the Glidelock clasp which is very useful. You can adjust the bracelet according to your wrist’s conditions. The 44mm case with its 18mm thickness together gives you very good wrist presence. It is indeed a heavy watch and a watch that can hardly go unnoticed.

The price of this watch will not drop too much due to limited supply. So, it is one of the best watches to retain its value.


4.      The Rolex Daytona 116520
What!? The 116520? What about the 116500ln? The new Daytona Ceramic?
Unfortunately, the 116500ln cannot be bought below 100k. So, if you do not have a Daytona yet and do not want to pay a premium for the new Daytona Ceramic, you can go for the 116520.
To many people, the price for a stainless steel Rolex should never exceed 100k. The new Daytona Ceramic is great but some of us may find it a bit expensive. The 116520, on the other hand, has been discontinued. That means the price of this watch will not go down. It is a very good investment for you at this moment when you can still easily find NOS 116520. As one of the most iconic Rolexes for 16 years, the 116520 is worth your money.
5.      The Jaeger-Lecoultre Geophysic True Second Universal Time


This is the watch for you if you travel a lot. Even if you don’t, this is also the watch to have below 100k. In short, this is a world-timer with a mechanical movement while the second hand ticks instead of sweeps. The rotor is in solid gold. At 40mm, this watch offers a lot.

It is an interesting thing to behold when you see how the mechanical movement actually makes the second hand tick instead of sweep. The dial is finely executed with a world map on it. It will be your best travel companion.

Dive watch comparison: Rolex VS Hublot VS Audemars Piguet

A diver may be the most frequently seen watch in Hong Kong. When paired with formal attire or casual wear, it serves its purpose well – not to dive – but to tell the time without yielding to conditions such as shock, water spills and extreme weather. A diver is reliable as it is water-resistant to certain meters. It is a very good everyday watch. Here, we have three contenders from three brands today. Let’s see which one wins your heart, and how deep you can dive.

1.      The representative of Rolex – the Deep Sea 116660

The Rolex Deep Sea 116660 is the crown’s deepest diver ever made. It is water-resistant to 3900m. But is it really its limit? No. You will not test it, though. The fact is that it must be capable to withstand the water pressure at over 3900m’s depth in order to have the official number of 3900m water-resistance. At 44mm wide and 18mm thick, it is a beast on the wrist. Two dial options are available which are the black and D-blue dials. Price wise, the black dial is around 20k cheaper with discounts. If a Sea-Dweller or Submariner cannot give you the solid feeling a diver should have, go for the Deep Sea and you will not regret.
2.      Hublot Oceangraphic 4000m

Being water-resistant 100m more than the Rolex Deep Sea, this Hublot is a monster watch on the wrist. The dial is very legible with an inner rotating bezel which can be turned by the crown at 4 o’ clock. It is 48mm wide and thicker than the Deep Sea. The main difference is the weight. As the case is made of titanium, it does not wear as hefty as the Deep Sea. It is a good choice for you if you are into something special.
3.      Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver


A diver with a display case back? Here you have the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore which is now offered with a see-through case back. The watch is “only” water-resistant to 300m. However, the polishing and the shape of the case as well as the finishing of the movement are top-notch. It is really a joy to see the well-decorated solid gold rotor on your diver, isn’t it? The watch has an inner rotating bezel which can be turned by the crown at 10 o’ clock. It is worn on a thick and well-crafted rubber strap.


Let us know which of the above your diver of choice is. To us, the Rolex Deep Sea is currently the winner as the price, the function and the value it can retain are the best among the three.

What make the crown stand out?

When we talk about watches, we always talk about Rolex. When we talk about Rolex, we always talk about…errr… the Submariner? the Daytona? Or… the Day-Date?
Have you wondered why Rolex has been so successful all over the world? HK Snob weighs in.
1.      Price
In Hong Kong, Rolex stainless steel watches are around 30k-90k. It means a stainless steel Rolex is never over 100k HKD (now it may be different with the new Daytona). That has been the case for many years.
A Rolex is a symbol of status in Hong Kong and many of us do not mind buying a symbol of status under 100k HKD. It is a mental trick. Rolex understands how big the amount of money we are willing to spend on their watches.

2.      Iconic design
Be it a Submariner, a Daytona or a Datejust, we can always recognize a Rolex easily. When worn on the wrist, you are wearing something that you know others will envy. There are so many iconic designs in the Rolex collection. Each of them has its own features and character.
This successfully makes people want to buy more and more after they own their first Rolex. Of course, movie stars wearing Rolex watches contribute a lot to its success, too.
3.      Practicality
Every Rolex is tough. Every Rolex movement is an unbeatable workhorse. Yes. This is the image of Rolex – its being super practical.
Although you may not dive with your Submariner or check the other city’s time with your GMT Master, these watches are made with practical function and outstanding durability.
You seldom hear that a Rolex is not accurate or it breaks down easily. Each Rolex watch has its own practical function. It has nothing excessive. The image of each Rolex model is so clear that laymen understand easily.
