Rolex Daytona 116506 ’50th Anniversary’

Brand: Rolex


The 50th anniversary Daytona

‌When this beauty came in, everyone stopped what they were doing and quickly came to look at this truly unique watch. There is something to this watch that just draws you to it.

‌The 116506 was released in 2013 for the 50th anniversary of the Rolex Daytona and it caused quite the stir. It was the first Daytona featuring the ceramic bezel and Just like the 16610LV’s green bezel, many people didn’t understand the need for something so ‘extra’. Why platinum and why the contrasting ice blue dial against the chestnut brown bezel and sub dials. It was unnecessarily heavy and it stood out too much. It was the 1960’s all over again where the Daytona wasn’t received well and was sold at discounts. Believe it or not, but the previous owner actually got a discount on it of 25%. Can you imagine?

‌We think it might be one of the best-looking Daytona’s ever made. We like that it stands out and that there is weight to it. We love the fact it has got the subtle diamond hour markers that look more like stick markers but once you take a closer look reflect the light like no other. The diamonds work even better because of the dial color making it truly ice like. It also was the first Daytona ever to be crafted in platinum which makes it even more collectible.

‌There is so much to learn about the Daytona and it might be the model with the richest history of all since it was the most turbulent. We’d definitely recommend to check out the following websites to learn all there is to know.

We hope Rolex continues to make daring and unusual designs. Not only because of the collectability, but also because it’s what the world of watches thrives on. Incremental changes will only get you so far, disruptive ones open up new dimensions.

‌This watch comes full set and in mint condition. It has recently been checked by the Rolex Service Centre and is running beautifully. To top it all off, it comes with the non-baguette dial to.
