Rolex Daytona Ceramic
The new Ceramic Bezel Daytonas in 18ct Yellow Gold and 18ct White Gold released at Baselworld 2017 were not much of a suprise as most believed it was only a matter of time until they entered the fray.
With the introduction of the 18ct Rose Gold (116515) version, there was demand for the other models to follow suit as to some it made little sense to have only one strap model with Ceramic bezel. It then seemed like it was imminent when the Strap versions of the Yellow and White were discontinued last year with very few orders being accepted.
What Rolex have released this year is a breath of fresh air for the range as not only have they introduced the Ceramic bezel to the whole Daytona Strap collection, they have also decided to offer them with the Rubber Oysterflex strap/bracelet that was first introduced on the Yachtmaster. This has also been included on the Rose Gold model and the change seems to have brought the look of the watch right up to date.
The 116518LN in 18ct Yellow Gold featuring Cermaic bezel and Oysterflex bracelet. RRP is currently £20,200
The 116519LN in 18ct White Gold featuring Cermaic bezel and Oysterflex bracelet. RRP is currently £21,050
The 116515LN in 18ct Rose Gold featuring Cermaic bezel and Oysterflex bracelet. RRP is currently £21,050
We would expect these watches to start arriving towards the middle of the year and we are currently taking details for expression of interest.
