No offense here. But BALL CE and Rolex Daytona are deffinitely not the same caliber. Rolex Daytona is one of the most recognise and complicated model of rolex. But it you put rolex daytona beside UN chrono or Brueget complicated model. Daytona is nothing compare to it. So rolex maybe prestigue but it is also not really so prestigue in many other sense.I have Ball and Rolex plus other brands. Qualitywise, on the outside both are well built watches. However, brand name of Rolex is much, much more prestigious. I don't think the two can be compared...are you saying that you like a CE better than a Rolex Daytona?
This is like comparing a Ferrari with a well built Toyota Corolla. Price points are different, brand names are different.
If you prefer a CE over a Rolex, then the CE is the right choice for you. Most people who buy Rolex are not just buying the watch per se.
For a better comparison of BALL and Rolex(And in these case) CE with Airking or datejust. All cosc and uncomplicated dial with maybe date window. Then you would have a better judgement. You can only lied to yourself if you still think rolex is better looking at their price and functionality...
