Well, here we are, half a month after Baselworld, I’m actually hung up on one watch. That’s right you got it – the Rainbow Daytona. I wish I could reveal to you why I love this watch so a lot, however it’s quite difficult to articulate fixation. Let’s be honest, once in a while words simply aren’t sufficient. I’m humiliated to let it out, yet when I previously saw the new Rainbow Daytona in Everose my hands started to shake, my palms began to perspire, and the prick of hot tears stung the rear of my eyes. It was unexplainable adoration. To say I was distant from everyone else in my response is putting it mildly – I was given some genuine side-eye by my associates, however I couldn’t care less. This watch is dope, and here’s why.
All hail the Rainbow Daytona!
The Rainbow Daytona was first delivered back in 2012 in both white and yellow gold. It was made in VERY restricted amounts, hit clique status rapidly and has nearly significantly increased in an incentive from that point forward. This year Rolex shocked us all by dropping the Everose variant, and it is dynamite in the metal. The watch is very much like the two past renditions, yet the case and wristband are another metal and there are distinctive files at the hours, which, regardless of not appearing to be a ton, has a colossal impact.
The official name of this watch isn’t really “Rainbow Daytona” – this is exactly what it has been so warmly named in the course of recent years. It is authoritatively known as the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona reference 116595RBOW, a valuable metal chronograph with a sapphire-and jewel set case. The Rainbow Daytona is made of Everose, Rolex’s own amalgam of pink gold (an ideal ruddy tint), and it is matched with a dark veneer dial, Pink Gold Crystal sub-dials, 36 roll set sapphires in the bezel, 56 jewels set into the drags and case, and hued sapphire lists. The actual watch is controlled by the programmed type 4130 and is waterproof up to 100 meters/330 feet. So indeed, in the event that you need to swim with this watch, you can. I would not ordinarily recommend something like this, yet I highly empower it with this watch – would you be able to envision the radiance submerged at the sea shore!? I can.
The Everose gold truly draws out the tones on the bezel. I think there is something in particular about that pink tint that truly enhances everything, making the rainbow bezel more lively – which, we should get genuine, is truly what this watch required. The greatest change (to be reasonable there are just two) and the one that I am simply completely fixated on is the new arrangement of hour records. That is to say, have you seen them?! They are currently hued sapphires that coordinate the slope of the bezel impeccably. The past models included jewel set files (additionally set into a dark enamel dial). I think this change shows up, despite the fact that this watch is still lovely noisy. Also, you understand what they say – God is in the details.
The most amazing aspect for me are the files that coordinate the angle of the bezel.
The best thing about this watch is that it is so Rolex. It’s your standard Daytona, a customary chronograph (a device watch), decked out in entirely coordinated, hand-cut, hand-set sapphires sourced from extraordinary providers. In the event that you didn’t know, Rolex has around 20 in-house diamond setters and they possibly use stones of IF (Internally Flawless) quality, which means they have no incorporations, no defects, no nothing. Fundamentally, every stone and each setting is wonderful on the grounds that Rolex will make due with nothing less.
Hand-cut, hand-set, IF gemstones. Natch.
But it’s not what’s happening about this watch that makes it so extraordinary, but instead the general impression of the actual watch. A many individuals have poopooed this watch for being grandiose, over-the-top, and shabby, yet for me this watch is none of those things. Indeed, it’s noisy, and on the off chance that you asked me five years prior in the event that I would wear this watch the appropriate response would have been a hard “no,” however something throughout the long term changed, and I wound up fixating on it. I have no clue about why, my overall tastes will in general be customary and exemplary, yet something about the sheer pointless nature of this watch is the thing that truly gets me (that and the radiance, duh). However, for all aspects of me that adores this watch for absolutely stylish reasons, there are equivalent pieces of me that are dazzled by the assembling of this piece.
On the wrist, this watch is just as mystical as you could envision. It wears like a Daytona (clearly) and looks like Liberace – and I was unable to adore it more. I picture wearing it with pants and a shirt in the mid year, tasting rosé on the sea shore some place fantastic. Be that as it may, everybody is permitted to have their own Rainbow Daytona dreams, so have at it.
As I said, this watch isn’t for everybody. For hell’s sake, it’s not for a great many people! Be that as it may, I love it for precisely what it is: unadulterated extravagance. It’s not about wearability, reasonableness, or usefulness. This watch is about fun, and isn’t that what be the issue here? What’s more, before you proceed to say I am fixated on Rolex, I will reveal to you this – if Rolex is King, I am simply a humble subject.
You can purchase the Rainbow Daytona (on the off chance that you can get your hands on one) for $96,900 without the precious stone dial and wristband (indeed, that rendition exists as well). You can peruse more about this watch at Rolex on the web .
