Lot Essay

Offered in extremely good overall condition, the present reference is part of the rarest jewellery-set iterations of the Rolex Daytona chronograph. Crafted out of platinum gold, the timepiece participated in defying the idea that sports watches were bound to be manufactured in steel.

The dial with diamond and baguette-cut indexes displays a highly attractive ice-blue colour, enhancing the overall appeal of this fine timepiece. It is furthermore offered with the full set of accessories.

Reference 116506
Ref. 116506 is the first platinum Daytona Chronograph ever made by Rolex and was introduced at the 2013 Baselworld for the 50th anniversary of the model. Its most obvious innovation is the material of the case and bracelet, now produced in the most noble of all metals, the bezel and dial have also undergone important changes.

The chestnut-brown bezel is made of solid Cerachrom ceramic, with numerals and graduation drawn via PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition) of an ultra-thin platinum layer. The resulting effect is perfect legibility and aesthetic beauty.

The dial is a five-liner, in perfect Cosmograph tradition, with the Rolex, Oyster Perpetual, Superlative Chronometer, Officially Certified, Cosmograph at 12 o' clock below the Rolex crown, the red Daytona designation above the central subsidiary dials and set with sparkling diamonds that further elevate the dial to an even higher level. The chapter rings of the subdials are lacquered in the same tone as the Cerachrom bezel. The breathtaking and revolutionary ice-blue colour of the dial is repeated to the sinde of the subdials, perfectly complimenting the cool beauty of the platinum case.
