Being one of the most revered models in Rolex¡¯s family and going to celebrate in 2009, the Daytona series has received yet another beautiful member, the 18kt gold Rolex Daytona Everose Ref. 116505 chronograph watch.
The Daytona, as one of the modern ¡°complicated¡± Rolex watches, is considered as most popular line in Rolex family. Its balanced aesthetics is widely recognized but is still undervalued by a few, while its ¡°complication¡± is a bit overvalued since it just have a chronograph complication.
Last year, Daytona welcomed its its 60th anniversary. To celebrate this big event, Rolex launched a new 18K gold Rolex Daytona Everose chronograph watch(Ref. 116505) which was a truly beautiful watch. Once it showed up, replica watch manufacturers smelt its commercial value immediately and started the copy process quickly. Nowadays, the rep market is full of rep 116505 -in different quality and price levels,though.
The 116505 is made in a stardard 40mm size. The case, crafted from 18kt rose gold , is fitted with Triplock winding crown and Oysterlock bracelet with Easylink adjustment system.Beating inside is a COSC-certified chronograph chronometer that has 72 hours power reserve.
Covered by a sapphire crystal that resists scratches better than normal glasses, the black dial is highly pleasing to look at. It includes three subsidiary dials: sub-hours dials at 6 o¡¯clock, 3 o¡¯clock and 9 o¡¯clock respectively.
The 116505, just like all modern Daytona watches, is water resistant to 100 meters. But I wonder if any owner will swim with this $35,000 luxury watch.
