A green dial, the iconic color most associated with Rolex watches, sets this all-gold Cosmograph Daytona apart from the rest.
The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona ranks among the staples of Rolex watch collections, having been part of the manufacture’s history since 1963 — close to sixty uninterrupted years, and counting.
No wonder then, that this remarkable piece sporting Rolex’s flagship color enjoys such high demand among Rolex connoisseurs and watch collectors around the globe: there is something impressively coherent and ever-green in this combination.
The red Daytona text below the center, the dashes of red circles around its three sub-dials, and the infinitesmall red minute markers around the periphery of the dial bring the Cosmograph Daytona’s authentic link to the world of motorsports into the picture. These small, tasteful, yet important details also highlight Rolex’s attention to the smallest specifics.
On that note, a core reason for Rolex’s global status stems from the fact that such minute, yet fascinating details are abundant across all collections.
The satisfying process of discovering and understanding them takes not a glance, but years, if not decades of curious attention.
Presented in an exterior crafted exclusively from 18ct yellow gold, including the case, caseback, bezel, crown, pushers, bracelet and clasp, the Rolex Daytona in yellow gold offers absolutely stunning wrist-presence.
