The Full set 18k white gold Daytona Beach ref. 116519PRICE ON REQUEST
Extremely rare example of 18k white gold Rolex Daytona ref. 116519, manufactured in 2002.
Rolex’s Daytona Cosmograph represents one of the most iconic and sought-after wristwatches ever produced.
While early chronographs were produced as tool watches for motorsports and horse track racing, today they are a symbol of excellence in timekeeping, and precision haute horology.
The Daytona is appreciated for its contemporary aesthetic with a masculine vibe and can be worn by both men and women.
Since its introduction in 1963, the model has undergone a multitude of changes from metal to acrylic bezels, addition of screw down pushers, and various caliber changes from manual to automatic movements.
During the 1980s, Rolex began to adorn their sports watches with precious gemstones for their most exclusive and demanding clientele.
In the late 1990s through the 2000s, Rolex specifically utilized the ultimate luxury tool watch, the Cosmograph Daytona, as a vehicle for gemological experimentation, and as the present “Beach” Daytona demonstrates, a new aesthetic with new dial types.
For a short period of time at the turn of the 21st century, Rolex offered the “Daytona Beach” with four dial types including yellow mother of pearl, green chalcedony, pink mother of pearl and like the present example, turquoise.
The models were produced not in stainless steel but in 18 karat white gold, and provided a colorful and fresh joie de vivre to the collection.
Each example was offered with a matching colored strap, and they were very much an expression of a summer day at the beach.
The model also featured Rolex’s new in-house automatic movement – the caliber 4130.
Over the years the “Beach” series has become coveted by collectors, and today are highly sought after.
The present example features a wonderful turquoise dial. It is preserved in perfect condition, featuring a flawless dial an absolutely unpolished case. More over it is accompanied by the original Rolex guarantee, tag and booklets.
