The Rolex of Rolex’s Daytona 116523


For a long time the #Rolex Daytona has been one of the most desirable of the sports range i always aspired to own.  This particular one the 18k gold and stainless black dial gold sub dials probably not as appreciated as the stainless version especially as when 15 years ago the waiting list was 10 years to get  a stainless model which made me and others want one even more !  Years later i did mange to get a bi metal #zenith version used not new that i previously blogged about but in my mind still always wish to own a stainless version.  The 116523 was recent acquisition i purchased around 6 months ago and is the updated model with a couple of slight tweeks for the better, firstly  a new style clasp far better than old then solid gold middle links which reduces stretch on the bracelet over time and also Rolex rehaut security feature with serial number laser etched round inside of the bezel ring and lastly gold and black hands so the time is easy to read.  I basically only wore on special occasions and decide to part ways for a the same exact model but stainless as found its less flash but has the same outstanding appeal of the Daytona.  Which my next blog will about my new Rolex Daytona 116520 white dial.

Here is Breitling Navitimer 24 Chronomatic 24 hour.


Here is a very nice timepiece Breitling Navitimer Chronomatic 24 hour limited edition to 1000 pieces. This is a re-issue of the original chronomatic 24 hour in 1970,s, comes with a chronograph movement with a date window at the bottom size a 44MM case also comes on the navitimer world bracelet. The major feature of the watch is you can tell the time in 24 hours which it seems strange when you actually look at watch in 24 hour, as in the wrist shot says nearly 10 past 7 in the evening. but overall nice size and weight.

The Rolex Bracelet types


I thought i would blog about a few of types of bracelets Rolex use mainly oyster and jubilee, sports Rolex’s are oyster full separate links and jubilee on dress watches which are more smaller loose links but they did mix and match from time to time.   There all optional if you really wanted.  First is the stainless steel oyster in the picture comes fully brushed effect on Rolex Submariners up to around 2008 with not many changes over 50 years just slight modifications.


Second is Jubilee Bracelet in stainless steel comes on a lot of datejust’s but this as a concealed clasp version brushed on the edge polished silver in the middle, much nicer rather than the standard type clasp.


Third is a Rolex Oyster 18K rose gold and stainless steel,  this one comes on 2009 datejust’s very nice thick not flimsy at, all brushed on the edge polished in the middle.



Here is all 3 bracelets side by side.
