Excluding the mythical reference 6270 and 6269, Rolex hardly ever embellished their chronograph models with precious stones. Yet, with the introduction of the automatic Daytona, the manufacture gradually incorporated elaborate Daytona designs to their line of production, due to changing tastes in the market. Only a handful of this highly appealing Daytona are thought to have been made and very few have appeared in public and the here offered reference 116589RBR is definitely one of the coolest in recent years. The 40 mm case in white gold is extremely well-preserved and is equipped with a very precious two-lines diamond-set, representation of the rigorous standards in quality Rolex is particularly skilled in. The The classic combination of the white gold case and black lacquered dial enhanced by diamond-set numerals is one of the most beautiful variants ever created for the Daytona line. This very black dial has been mounted under special request of a prominent Rolex costumer. The watch also comes with its full set composed of box, Booklets, service, tag and papers.
