A legendary Rolex model that has enjoyed unequalled recognition since its launch in 1963, the Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona presented at Baselworld 2012 offers yet more of the enchantment for which it is renowned. This new Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Rainbow boasts a distinctively refreshing colourful design. Rainbow is because along with its 18 ct yellow gold case and bracelet, its bezel is set with baguette-cut sapphires forming a rainbow pattern (reds, oranges, yellows, greens, blues, mauves and pinks sapphires).
The three counters in yellow Gold Crystals makes great contrast with the black lacquer of the dial. These exclusive counters highlight the crystal structure of the gold in a play of reflections and colours. This is also available in white gold, for a more discreet look.
That’s not all. Cosmograph Daytona Rainbow also features more than fifty diamonds, studded on the case and on the dial. If you add Rolex’s proprietary calibre 4130, a self-winding mechanical chronograph movement, you’ll get a true horological wonder.
The retail price is $89,100 and availability is limited due to the difficulty of matching the coloured gemstones.
