ROLEX DAYTONA PINK GOLD ref. 116505 FULL SET
In 1963, Rolex manufactures the Cosmogrraph Daytona, a watch dedicated to the racing drivers who battle on the car circuits in Florida and around the world.
It quickly becomes the ideal partner for race drivers. Legible, precise and resistant, it clearly meets the expectations of these users.
At first, it is mechanical with a plexiglas glass until 1987, then it adopts the Zenith El Primero automatic movement with a sapphire crystal. Since 2000, Rolex manufactures its own chronograph movement.
The proposed model is from 2010, a case with screwed crown, pushers and case back. It measures 40 mm in diameter and is in pink solid gold as the bezel with its tachymeter scale. The bracelet is also Oyster in pink solid gold, in other words a full gold.
A dial with applied indexes and luminescent hands. 3-counter chronograph with minutes totalizer at 3, hours totalizer at 9 and permanent second hand at 6.
The mechanical movement is self-winding and chronometer certified.
The Daytona is a reference in the field, an iconic watch that Paul Newman glorified in the 1960s.
This all-pink gold version, one of the most beautiful materials, is very elegant. An absolutely successful combination of colours.
The absolute chronograph highly desired by collectors and amateurs of fine watchmaking.
This splendid pink solid gold version is moreover proposed with its original box and papers, a full set not to be missed.
