Lot Essay

Rolex is a watch manufacturer who can alternate seamlessly from classic to avant-garde designs. This has been demonstrated numerous times over the decades. For example, the gold reference 6262 in the late 1960s and early 1970s, the diamond-set reference 6269 and reference 6270 in the 1980s, the beach Daytonas and the Leopard at the beginning of the new millennium. This tradition of innovation lives on in the second decade of this century, as the present watch demonstrates.

Whilst maintaining the case style and overall dial layout of a normal Daytona, it is apparent that this masterpiece is anything but normal. The bezel is set with baguette-cut sapphires in the colours of the rainbow, the lugs and crown guard are set with brilliant-cut diamonds. The case design is sublime, encasing the large white masterpiece case in a multi-coloured aura. The innovation continues on the dial. While the graphic is similar to that of normal Daytonas, the colour scheme creates a daring masterpiece of innovation and design exploration. Diamond-set numerals shine on the pitch black dial, as do the meteorite subsidiary dials, whose colour scheme is revolutionary on a Daytona. Their indefinable three-dimensional camouflage crystal shards effect imparts a delicate glitter that combines with the markers and the bezel in a fusion of glittering lights.
