The reference 116 523 was the first stainless steel and yellow-gold Daytona chronograph to feature Rolex’s new in-house caliber 4130, replacing the famed Zenith El Primero caliber 4030. The steel 40 mm Oyster case is ringed by the distinctive Daytona gold bezel and a steel case. With its two-tone coloring, steel and 18k gold, it has arguably the most versatility compared to all its steel and all gold stable mates. The white dial is changed into a cream color and it is untouched is gorgeous with the red Daytona signature and the applied yellow-gold baton numerals. Moreover this specimen comes with its original guarantee.
