On the occa­sion of the largest watch fair in the world, Rolex unveiled no less than five new watches. This arti­cle is writ­ten to focus on the new Rolex Cos­mo­graph Day­tona platinum!

Rolex unveiled at the first day of Basel­world a new Cos­mo­graph Day­tona, two new Day-Date, a new GMT Mas­ter II, and a new Lady Date­just Pearlmaster.

Today we take the advan­tage of only speak of Day­tona cel­e­brat­ing its 50th anniver­sary this year and there is already plenty to do!

Detail on the new Daytona

This new model was cre­ated to cel­e­brate the 50th anniver­sary of the great Day­tona. 50 years of hap­pi­ness between a watch and its pub­lic, it is not noth­ing! Admit­tedly, this iconic model has always cap­ti­vated fans, and indi­vid­ual enthu­si­asts of horol­ogy and auto­mo­tive. New Day­tona was expected, and like every year before the Basel fair, spec­u­la­tions were rife. Now it’s there, we can describe it as ele­gant and time­less as her sis­ters, and she takes the oppor­tu­nity for some very orig­i­nal col­ors, while remain­ing very faith­ful to the model in its forms.

This mag­nif­i­cent 950 plat­inum ver­sion is also 40 mm and hap­pi­ness comes back than ever with a ceramic bezel, but not just any. This is a one-piece bezel Cer­achrom brown choco­late that sur­rounds and high­lights a blue dial glac­ier reflec­tion cap­ti­vat­ing. On the same dial, a nice reminder of the color of the bezel on three coun­ters hall­marks of Daytona.

At the heart of the beau­ti­ful, excep­tional cal­iber, 4130, devel­oped and man­u­fac­tured in-house by Rolex, as indeed all cal­i­bres. This mechan­i­cal chrono­graph with col­umn wheel and auto­matic wind­ing move­ment is pre­cise and of course COSC cer­ti­fied per­for­mance. The oscil­la­tor includes a patented Rolex PARACHROM Spi­ral devel­oped in an exclu­sive alloy. This spi­ral is a small con­cen­trated know-how which has high sta­bil­ity against mag­netic fields and tem­per­a­ture changes.

Hand strap, this course is a solid-link Oys­ter 950 plat­inum clasp Oys­ter­lock with the famous patented Rolex; but also with a mesh exten­sion Easylink, which per­mits adjust­ment to 5 mm, always pro­vid­ing great comfort.

We will return very soon on all new Rolex that are excep­tional news brand.

We all noticed the pro­fu­sion of pages ded­i­cated to the Rolex brand or its leg­endary mod­els groups. But none of these pages were an offi­cial page!

Rolex has made the leap to our delight as we now have at our dis­posal a flood of infor­ma­tion and beau­ti­ful pic­tures directly within reach. The launch was the first day of the fair in Basel, with an offi­cial announce­ment on Rolex.com.

Remains to be seen what will be the talk of the brand in the media and how this page will be hosted. We always have hope because with a brand that has as much fame (more than 400 000 fans in two days), there is a good chance that things are still made in full.
