The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona is one of the most famous and sought after watches on the market. Launched in 1963, its 50th anniversary in 2013 was highly expected by all the watch collectors. To celebrate this birthday, the manufacture introduced a new reference 116506 entirely in platinum, powered by a 4130 caliber, with a chestnut brown Cerachrom bezel and an ice-blue dial with the historic red Daytona signature on the dial.
This reference was only the third Rolex watch to be fitted with a Cerachrom bezel. Rolex took years to develop this new material. Patented in 2005, Cerachrom is the contraction of the French word céramique and the ancient Greek suffix chrom. This component is virtually scratchproof, highly corrosion resistant, and its color is unaffected by ultraviolet rays.
Another version of this iconic model which will undoubtedly make history.
