The Porsche 911 Carrera and top quality fake Rolex Cosmograph Daytona were both born in the same year — 1963. In addition to this, the sports car and driving watch shared a shaky start with limited success in the early days.
As the years rolled on, they gradually grew an appreciation from collectors despite the core design remaining essentially unchanged. Vintage 911s and vintage Daytonas in pristine condition garner incredible auction prices with no sight of coming down anytime soon.
Modern iterations such as the Rolex Daytona fake with black Cerachrom bezel and track-ready GT3 RS are almost impossible to acquire. The only glimmer of hope would be having a loyal custom with a dealer or being willing to pay over sticker price on the secondary/gray market.
The Porsche 911 and the Swiss movement replica Rolex Daytona fans are equaled by the detractors who say the Daytona has illegible sub-dials and the 911 has too much understeer. However, the legacy remains and the demand will surely never dwindle.
