When the reference 116599RBOW first came out in 2012, it was not considered the most popular Rolex. A lot of people find it a “bold” watch which merely a few can sport.
Mesmerizing the aura of the rainbow, the most standout feature of the reference 116599RBOW is naturally the bezel. The silhouette of a rainbow can ignite Rolex’s imagination. Using the classic 18k yellow gold Cosmograph Daytona case as a base, the bezel is equipped with mutil-coloured baguette-cut sapphires, forming a rainbow pattern of reds, oranges, yellows, greens, limes, blues and purples. Much to everyone’s surprise, the colourful sapphires fit perfectly on the masculine and sporty watch, creating a unique but magnificent appeal.
The Rainbow Daytona had an uncommonly short production run for a modern Rolex and is now discontinued. Over its production span, the number of Daytona Rainbows that have been sold is extremely small, hence the availability is extremely limited. To date, the avant-garde creation has slowly grown in the heart of Rolex collectors and its prices have surged rapidly over the years.
Sotheby’s is very pleased to offer this daring masterpiece that has never been offered in any auction before.
