Rolex 2013 Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona Platinum
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of 1963′s emblematic Daytona, Rolex unveiled a platinum edition of the Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona at this year’s Baselworld. Donning a chestnut brown monobloc ceramic Cerachrom bezel and an icy blue dial, this marks the first time the design has been crafted entirely in 950 platinum as the precious metal handles the safety clasp closure and solid-link bracelet. The piece is also equipped with Rolex’s in-house calibre 4130 self-winding mechanical chronograph movement, which proves infinitely more reliable than its counterparts thanks to a design that incorporates significantly fewer components. Retaining Rolex’s signature Oyster case, this nod to Paul Newman’s trusty timepiece will be available from select retailers in extremely limited numbers.
