Offered here is a beautiful example of the Rolex Daytona Platinum 116506.
All watch enthusiasts and collectors waited with bated breath back in 2013; all eager to see what Rolex would release to celebrate the 50th anniversary of what is arguably the most desirable watch of all time, the Rolex Daytona.
When it was released, it certainly came as a surprise to some as its initial reception was best described as mixed. Popular opinion was the watch released would be a steel Daytona with a new ceramic bezel, but this was far from the case (The watch world would have to wait another 3 years to see this watch in the flesh!). Following the release of the Everose Daytona two years prior in 2011, the world knew Rolex was capable and willing to put a Cerachrom ceramic bezel on its beloved Daytona. It had certainly proved popular as the new material of choice amongst the rest of the professional range; the Submariner and GMT-Master II. Instead, Rolex chose to release a platinum Daytona, with an ice blue dial and chestnut brown Cerachrom ceramic bezel, the 116506.
The dial itself is Ice-Blue; a colour reserved only for watches manufactured by Rolex entirely in Platinum. Before this release, this dial colour was most frequently associated with the Rolex Day-Date II. To anyone in the know, this instantly identifies a special quality in the watch otherwise not possible to identify without closer inspection, of its material. Its chronograph subdial is framed in a Chestnut brown, which matches its Cerachrom ceramic tachymeter bezel of the same colour. Usually when we hear the word “brown” used to describe something, rarely does this conjure up any notion of excitement and wonder. However, on the Platinum Daytona, the depth, richness, and warmth of the bezel need to be seen to be fully understood.
The movement is the Rolex Calibre 4130. First introduced in the year 2000, it was the first watch to feature Rolex’s patented Parachrom hairspring. Famous for its anti-magnetic properties, as well as temperature and shock resistance. It was further improved in 2005 with an oxide coating, creating the now-famous blue colour, and resulting in a longer life span for the part. It has a 72-hour reserve, 44 jewels and a frequency of 28,800 BPH resulting in the second-hand sweep one associates with a Rolex.
The overall condition of this Daytona is excellent. The Platinum case retains its factory finishes, with the lugs all being symmetrical along with the top edges and polished finishes being unmarked. The stunning ‘Ice Blue Dial’ is beautiful with the lume clear/sharp as it left the Rolex factory.
The bezel's Cerachrome bezel is in excellent condition along with the 3-piece/link Platinum Oyster bracelet.
This stunning Platinum Daytona is also accompanied by its original Rolex boxes, service booklet, card, and pouch.
