Today, I’d like to introduce the 18ct Gold version to you. (watch version: 116518LN)
The Rolex Daytona Chronometer was born in 1963. At that time, it was not called Daytona at the beginning of its launching. Just in time for the opening of the United States beach race, so the watch was selected to join in the competition of designated timing instrument for the race, and was finally selected with excellent results. Daytona has also become the name of this excellent timepiece and came down from that time. After 54 years, it still maintained the classic design of the year. It combines Rolex’s consistent style of good quality, the traditional classics and modern aesthetics, as well as the good practicability to create the shining Rolex Perpetual Oyster Daytona Chronometer Gold.

Cerachrom word ring forming, the use of Rolex patented technology development. Cerachrom word bezel was made by Rolex patent technology.
The development of Rolex Daytona is an enduring hot topic. However, there are still something incomplete and even obscure mysteries about it. For example, the so-called “solo” dial — Daytona watch has only “Rolex” on it, no “Cosmograph”, no “Oyster”, and no “Daytona”. So, where is “solo” dial from? And what version does it made for?
First of all, we have to know the development of Daytona watch dials.
The printing of Daytona watch dial was a slow and gradual process. The printing of watch dial was changing when the watch was name as “Daytona”. After that, the Rolex chronograph watch was equipped with the “Oyster” watch case, and the printing of the dial developed again. All of these happened within several years. Therefore, watch dial has a shape when it was born, the it is added in some words, such as the earlier Oyster Pal Newman “RCO” or “Oyster Sottos”. These examples indicate that “Oyster” is added after “Rolex Cosmograph”.
In the world of Daytona, there are so many transition dial with “missing link”, which means they have some features of a acknowledged dial and some characteristics from another dial. There are “Swiss” watch dial, “Swiss + underline” watch dial and “T-Swiss-T” watch dial. All of these are in the small range of sequence number. Nowadays, there are several different versions of retro Daytona watches such as the general 6239, 6263, and rare 6264 and 6240.
We still think that the watch with the earlier 6239 “Swiss” watch dial is the most attractive sub branch in the Daytona family. At that time, they are called “LeMans”. Base on what concept to build this series is not yet clear. However, when talking about the single model, 6240 is a better example. In my point, I think 6240 is the most interesting one. There are also many watch lovers paying their attention on the 6240.
Nowadays, colorful objects more likely attract the eye. And those quality replica watches full of non-traditional color always are so fresh and full of charm. In 2017 Basel Watch and Jewelery Fair, there is such a class of watches, whose alternative color elements and classic watch styles make them more out of color style, if you like the fashionable color watch, then take a look at 2 new colorful watches in the follows:

Although the white dial is not very rare, it is very novel setting off by the delicate circular bezel and octagonal case, which is showing a unique sense of hierarchy.

The watch case with edges and corners is matching with a black crocodile leather strap, making this Swiss watch more fashionable and charming.
