I have not heard the news about APS Daytona for a long time since they released the Daytona last time, well, APS factory has succeeded in AP, but they failed in their Daytona project, no one bought. Just two or three days ago, Z factory announced that they will publish Daytona soon, and now their Daytona comes out, 116500, including the white and black model.
I do not think Z factory will get a success in this project, they will fail again, just like their Submariner in the past. You may still remember that Z factory made Submariner 116610LN and 116610LV before, after the closing of Noob, then Z factory started to make replicas of the Submariner, they thought many people would have bought their Submariner replicas, because Noob has been closed for a period at that time, and as a big factory, ZF has the same popularity as Noob in the market, but customers did not buy their Submariner even they lowered down the prices next, now, Z factory is still selling their Submariner at a special price, few people are interested in.
Well, I think their Daytona will have the same result as the Submariner. First, people now have a high recognition on the Daytona made by Clean factory, even though their Daytona watches are the most expensive, but still often sold out, and people usually need to wait for some days after placing the order. Second, besides Clean Daytona, we still have another good option, which is BT Daytona, whose quality is also super, I do not think the quality of ZF Daytona can catch up with that of BT Daytona. I got the two Daytona from ZF today and compared them with Clean’s, found the hour markers are not polished as good as Clean’s, so, even ZF will sell at a cheaper price, but I do not think our customers will buy them. Unless they improve the dial details and update the finish on the case and bracelet to the quality level on previous ARF Daytona, then they can gain some customers.
