ROLEX DAYTONA RAINBOW (116595 RBOW)
These models are extremely rare and only offered to the brand’s most devoted customers; therefore, they are in high demand not just among collectors but also among businessmen, famous soccer players Hollywood stars and creators There is a reason why the Daytona Rainbow is the most desired Rolex watch currently available. Many watch enthusiasts, in particular, favor the platinum model with baguette index hour markers or the John Mayer version.
There is no doubt that the Daytona Rainbow reference 116595 Rainbows is even more exclusive than some of the hottest chronographs currently available from Rolex. At Baselworld 2018, this unique version of the chronograph debuted alongside other novelties like the GMT Pepsi with Jubilee Bracelet.
36 colored baguette cut sapphires decorate the chronographs and bezel in a rainbow gradation, and in the case of the road, a rose gold watch is set with 56 brilliant Rolex Daytona rainbow cut diamonds. The black lacquer dial is perfectly cut and set with these gems. There are a total of 47 sapphires set in this opulent watch, with 11 more sapphires replacing the hour markers.
It goes without saying that Rolex has its own gemology and gem setting department for this kind of work, which requires a true craftsman to source such high-quality gemstones rather than actually working with them. Only a Horton horology expert could fulfill, so congratulations, Rolex.
The Rolex Rainbow is also available in two colors, pink gold crystals, and the subdials of the chronograph have undergone a crystallization process to give them a shimmering finish. Despite having more gemstones than the prior versions, which were made of white gold and yellow gold, the functionality was unaffected.
The solid oyster bracelet is fitted with the oyster lock safety folding clasp, and the case is still 100 meters water resistant. The hour and minute hands are made of bare blue luminescent material. The watch’s internal mechanism, the Rolex automatic in-house caliber 4130, has a power reserve of 72 hours, and there’s another important component right next to it.
Developed specifically 18-karat gold, The alloy was created internally and contains 76 gold. Due to its distinctive structure, the material is resistant to fading and allows the Rolex data owner to maintain its brightness over time. Ordinary rose gold loses its brightness over time and contains only 2% platinum. Based on the corrosive reactions of copper, and gold over time.
In any case, don’t bother asking your ad about the availability of the Daytona Rainbow because chances are higher that you already have one.
Moving on to the dial, we have a lovely black lacquer dial on this Daytona. You can also get this watch with the diamond-to-pave dial as well, but this one has the black lacquer tile which we personally think is much better. It’s also kind of been cut in these trapeze style shapes as well, which kind of tapers in towards the bezel or into the dial and is really beautiful. This watch looks and fits it much better.
The Daytona rainbow is the most sought-after Rolex watch, and we don’t think that will change anytime soon. The watch gained cult status as soon as it was unveiled at Baselworld, and may be the ultimate collector’s item.
