The Rolex Daytona Rainbow in Everose gold (reference 116595RBOW) is one of those watches that leaves me as confounded today as it did when it was presented last March. Albeit a ton of the consideration of this year’s Rolex discharges went to their GMT Pepsi , the Deepsea Sea-Dweller and GMT bi-shading models , their excessive Daytona Rainbow Everose 116595RBOW was discussed a great deal as well.
Rolex Daytona Rainbow Everose 116595RBOW
In 2012, Rolex presented their Daytona Rainbow in yellow gold (116598RBOW) and white gold (116599RBOW). Amazingly uncommon pieces that showed the abilities of Rolex craftsmanship for setting stones in watches. These watches are barely seen, as they are just delivered in exceptionally restricted numbers. These watches are regularly replicated, which means a gold Daytona is being tweaked with secondary selling precious stone setting, yet you don’t even must be a specialist to see that they don’t coordinate the first Rainbow. At all.
Where the primary Daytona Rainbow in yellow gold and white gold had precious stone set hour markers, this new form in Rolex’ own rose gold compound called Everose has 11 loaf cut, rainbow-shaded sapphires as hour markers. These hour markers shading match the 36 loaf cut sapphires as they have a similar rainbow degree. The 40mm Everose gold case has likewise been set with valuable stones, as you’ll find it adorned with 56 splendid cut jewels set into the carries and crown monitor. Some portion of the trouble delivering these watches is coordinating the shaded stones.
With a retail cost of $96,900USD, you would feel that purchasing a Rolex Daytona Rainbow Everose 116595RBOW is simply an issue of peddling out the cash. It isn’t. As said over, the creation is restricted and you presumably should be very much associated with an enormous Rolex AD or Rolex themselves to have the option to buy one.
If you want to then again go for a used yellow or white gold variant from earlier years, you have something else coming. As of late, the yellow gold Rolex Daytona Rainbow reference 116598RBOW was unloaded by Phillips in New York for an astounding $212,500USD (unique retail cost was $89,100USD). On the used market, as on Chrono24, the costs for an all unique Rainbow in yellow gold are similar.
It isn’t the first occasion when that Rolex transforms the Daytona into something wild. Albeit the utilization of gold and jewels can be seen frequently in Rolex’s history, in 2004 they presented the Daytona reference 116598 SACO, otherwise called the Daytona Leopard. A panther print dial with precious stone hour markers and a bezel set with 36 roll cut yellow sapphires showed Rolex’ audacity.
The tie likewise had a panther print to coordinate the dial, and the gold end-pieces were set with splendid cut precious stones. The Rolex Daytona Leopard reference 116598SACO can in any case be found on the used market and at barters every now and then, and costs are somewhat north of $50.000USD.
Back to the Daytona Rainbow in Everose gold. In the engine, this Daytona is equivalent to some other present day Daytona reference, so fueled by the Rolex type 4130 development. This development has been altogether planned, created and produced in-house by Rolex. It highlights a column haggle grip instrument for exact chronograph activity. It has all significant and present day Rolex developments ready, similar to the Paramagnetic (compound) Parachrom hairspring, that guarantees strength with regards to temperature changes and – because of its unique permit – isn’t touchy to attractive fields. On top, the development is destined to be precise up to – 2/+2 seconds every day overall and has a force save of 72 hours. Rolex has never been very ‘show off’ by putting their developments up for show utilizing a sapphire caseback, so likewise on this Daytona Rainbow you’ll locate a strong (Everose) gold one.
An Everose gold case and arm band alone isn’t for everybody, not to mention a bezel and dial set with roll cut sapphires in a Rainbow shading plan. What’s more, on top, jewel set hauls and crown watches. Presently, you can locate this appalling or if nothing else ‘not your style’, yet what baffled me is the fascination this watch has available and maybe the community of Rolex authorities. At the point when I put it on my wrist in Basel, it certainly had some fascination for me. Due to the Everose gold, yet the sapphires in rainbow tones and the pink gold subdials give a pleasant difference to the dark lacquered dial. The solitary things I am not partial to are the precious stone set carries and crown monitor, to be honest.
Everything is executed flawlessly, as it is consistently the situation with Rolex. I’m not a Rolex authority, but rather have (and have had) something reasonable of their models and it is really the single brand that never fizzled on me with regards to their items. Rolex guarantees they keep up the best expectations with regards to the use of materials, yet additionally for the determination of their valuable stones and the setting of them.
Whether it is the combination of tones, the utilization of valuable materials or the way that its creation is so amazingly low, these Rolex Daytona Rainbow watches are high sought after, demonstrated by the costs that individuals will pay for them. The low creation may be a marker for theorists that this watch may even go crazier in the future. Although more watches delivered for the current year multiplied in cost for different reasons (think GMT Pepsi for instance), the expansion from its RRP of $96,600USD to approx. $245.000USD it got on the Phillips sell off in Geneva last November, is extremely noteworthy, to say the least.
To me, this Rolex Daytona Rainbow ref 116595RBOW is the craziest watch of 2018 I’ve come across. Notwithstanding watches from different brands that are maybe significantly more extreme or more complicated, it simply bewilders me how a colorful execution of a Rolex Daytona can set such countless hearts ablaze and simultaneously, can be so atrocious to other people. That, beside how the market “financially” reacts to a significant piece this way, is the thing that intrigues me most about this Daytona Rainbow.
