But itís the dial of the rolex replica uk that really impresses. The dial is painted black with a subtle wave pattern print. The hands are chunky and they are coated in striking Superluminova dark orange. The indices and rim of the replica watches sale seconds dial - at the six o'clock position - are also of Superluminova dark orange. The dial is busy but the rolex replica uk gets away with it - I think because of the massive 27 mm dial. You get a display of hours and minutes at the center, a small second at the three rolex replica uk position with day and date display at the nine o'clock position. The titanium combined with black dial with touches of dark orange make this rolex replica visually stunning. There's no doubt that this replica watches sale is really going to be a winner for Oris. Do I have any reservations Not really. Some might say that the watch is a little too big for everyday wear.
