A legendary watch that requires no introduction, the Rolex Daytona is perhaps the most coveted chronograph on the market. While its stainless-steel variants seem to demand all of the attention, it is the precious metal variants, like the ref. 116508 we have here, which slip under the radar and present a genuine source of value on the open market. In 2016, Rolex released two new models one in yellow gold with a green dial and the other in white gold with a blue dial. While under the radar at first, the demand for these models has exploded in recent years following an episode of Hodinkee’s Talking Watches featuring John Mayer where the artist showcases several of his timepieces, including these two Daytona models. Made of stunning 18kt yellow gold and featuring a beautiful green sunburst dial, this ref. 116508 makes a statement thanks to its gold, yet appears refined and sporty thanks to its versatile dial. The watch is the epitome of luxury and wealth. Carrying Rolex’s ever-reliable automatic cal. 4130 movement within its case and bearing Rolex’s signature Oyster bracelet, this luxury tool watch operates just as brilliantly as it wears on the wrist.
