Catalogue Note

The Daytona Rainbow was first introduced in 2012 in yellow gold and later in white gold and pink gold. Mesmerising the aura of the rainbow, the most standout feature of the watch is naturally the bezel. The present watch, cased in white gold, is embellished with multi-coloured baguette-cut sapphires, forming a glittering rainbow encircling a contrasting black dial adorned with diamond-set numerals. Much to everyone’s surprise, the colourful sapphires fit perfectly on the masculine and sporty watch, creating a unique but magnificent appeal.

Only a handful of these pieces are produced each year by Rolex. This is due to the difficulty in sourcing perfectly calibrated sapphires of the right colour to construct the spectacular rainbow beautifully adorning the bezel.
