Hands On With Rolex Daytona 116515LN

Posted on

Hands On With Rolex Daytona 116515LN Rose Gold, this in my opinion is the nicest looking Gold Daytona Rolex produce not too ostentatious on a Rubber B Strap as they can look over the top with full gold oyster bracelet. The watch original comes on a black or brown croc leather with the rose gold deployment clasp.  This model Daytona was probably the first of the Daytona’s to come with a ceramic bezel as I did always think why not put the ceramic bezel on the steel models? in 2016 at Basel they launched the steel Daytona with updated dial and bezel Rolex Daytona 116500LN  and was an instant hit waiting lists endless…. The white dial version Panda Dial always a hit white dial with black sub dials.

The Rose gold Daytona comes in 18K everose gold with a stunning chocolate dial with dark brown numbers not batons, black ceramic bezel with gold writing 400 kilometres or miles per hour. The movement is the Cal 4130 by Rolex fantastic chronograph movement features a parachrom hair spring which is Cosc rated to within 2 seconds which is another good selling point for Rolex!
If you eyes ares not that good the chocolate dial Daytona is terrible to see the time  at night but at worst I can check the time on my phone.

The oyster clasp looks stunning in everose gold with the rubber and this year at Basel World Rolex launched a new range to go a long side with Rolex 116515LN in a range of other precious metals 18k white gold and 18k Yellow gold on the oyster flex. The oyster flex is Rolex’s own rubber strap which is very nice indeed although not compatible with my model as the clasp fitment is different, Thanks Rolex was hoping to buy a oyster flex strap.  See picture below still think rose gold chocolate dial is the best looking one all thou the white gold version would be my second choice. I actual think would be nice to own all 3 versions and the steel white version but how many Daytona’s does a man need!!

The one thing I would say is great about this model on the rubber strap is the watch can be worn every day without looking really flash and wears well in casual wear as well as smart. The Daytona will always be a watch to have always has been, the gold versions are not as popular due to the price tag. The Steel Daytona in the shops excluding Rolex Authorized Dealers are fetching some where £14000 – £15000 so the precious models are not a great deal more also can be discounted so might worth a look at an used gold Daytona on leather strap if your thinking of the steel version.

Hands On With The Rolex Datejust II 116334

Posted on

Hands On With The Rolex Datejust II 116334 stainless steel with white gold bezel continuing the Datejust theme thought it would be a good piece to post about.  This model has also just been discontinued by Rolex following Basel 2017.

This model was never a hit with Rolex hence why they said goodbye I did like this model but felt the proportions was all wrong big watch big bezel little small crown. Size was 41mm with a white gold bezel on a oyster bracelet with a option of a jubilee bracelet at point of sale. But wore big with a diddy little crown Submariner are 40mm but have big crown and looked correct.

The dial looked well thou stunning blue with baton hour markers and date window at 3 o clock, I  did try one out but never bonded with the watch. Rolex must have listen to folk and more than likely sales of the actual piece, they was not a best seller also very expensive at last Rrp was around £6850 ouch!! They have just launched a 41mm Datejust with white gold bezel so that is to fill the gap for saying fare well to the Datejust II.  So do not be running out to buy one thinking it will be a future collectors piece as I doubt it will. It seems the latest crazy when a watch they finish production of.

Roger Federer Seen With New Sky Dweller

Posted on

As the title says a link to a article of Roger Federer wearing the new Basel 2017 Sky dweller 3 days after the launch at Basel in March. This watch in my opinion is going to be the one to have. The new Sky dweller comes in the 3 colours of the dial white, black and beautiful blue which reminds me of the Patek Philippe 5711 with blue dial.

This model comes in stainless steel with a white gold bezel on oyster bracelet, Rolex in-house annual calendar date movement with GMT function which is Rolex’s most complicated movement to press. The annual calendar date means you set the date once a year and if the watch is worn or placed on a watch winder it will keep the correct date and time for a whole year.

There is another type of calendar date on the market that Rolex not mastered yet, it is the perpetual calendar date which will keep the correct date even on a leap year up to about 100 years! Patek Philippe have plenty of these in their wide range of watches.

The Sky dweller was only made in precious metals when originally launched about 4 years ago 18Ct Rose gold, White gold, and Yellow gold up and till late last month which I thought was a great move by Rolex.  I always wanted a sky dweller but ranging from £27,000 to £38,000 was never made financial sense and a lot of money to own one piece. Now the same watch will be in the shops in stainless steel with white gold bezel, annual calendar date GMT function, 42mm size case stunner all for £10,600 wow got say will be the one to have in 2017.

I will be looking forward to hopefully getting a blue dial Sky Dweller as now the watch could be worn as an every day piece. The precious metals models not great for every day use as gold knocks really easy. Overall for £10k will be a Rolex show stopper that is if I actual get the call from my local AD as I can only assume the list is climbing especially as there have took the blue and black dial off the Rolex website now 3 days after Basel.

There is a link below to Roger Ferderer wearing his all thou he is a sponsor of Rolex and he does like sky dwellers !!
