Last year, Rolex was the discussion of Baselworld on account of its madly well known tempered steel Daytona with Cerachrom bezel 116500LN ( see our hands on survey here ). Of course at that point, the ‘Crown’ is making some further increases to the Daytona line-up this year, all in valuable metals (Yellow, White and Rose Gold) and all highlighting dark Cerachrom bezels. What is astounding nonetheless, and enjoyably thus, is the way that each of the three models are fitted with the brand’s licensed Oysterflex wristband and security clasp.
When we distributed our yearly Rolex Baselworld 2017 forecasts , we speculated accurately that Rolex would dispatch a 18k white gold adaptation of the Daytona this year, complete with Cerachrom bezel. What we didn’t see coming however, was the way that it would be combined with an elastic Oysterflex arm band. Notwithstanding the white gold rendition, there is likewise a 18k yellow gold model and an Everose gold model.
The Oytserflex wristband was first presented in 2015 on the Rolex Yacht-Master ( see our hands on audit here ). The fundamental thought is to give the comfort and energetic style of an elastic lash however with the strength and life span of a metal wristband. At its center is a superelastic metal cutting edge, over the highest point of which has been formed an elite dark elastomer – a tough material that is especially impervious to ecological effects.
The tie is shut utilizing an Oysterlock wellbeing catch in a similar metal as the case, which has been intended to forestall unplanned opening. It is likewise outfitted with the Rolex-licensed Easylink quick expansion framework that empowers you to build the arm band length by roughly 5 mm on the off chance that your wrists swell somewhat in the warmth, etc.
For the remainder of the new Daytona assortment, everything basically remains equivalent to (we would expect – it is Rolex all things considered). The case is as yet 40mm and each of the three models are outfitted with oneself winding type 4130, which has been moved up to the Rolex Superlative Chronometer Certification of being exact to +2/ – 2 seconds for every day.
The dials of every one of the three models highlight a sunray finish and differentiating dark subdials, with the hands produced using a similar metal as the case and documented in with Chromalight (the Rolex variant of lume). The white gold rendition gets a shiny dial, while the yellow gold model has a champagne dial and the Everose gold model has an Everose dial. Costs are: EUR 25,000 for the Yellow Gold 116518LN, EUR 26,150 for the White Gold 116519LN, EUR 26,150 for the Everose 116515LN.
Stay tuned for live photographs once we get hands on with these models soon.
