The Daytona Everose reference 116 505 debuted at the Baselworld 2008, and meets the highest standards of design and functionality matching a sporty yet elegant style. The watch can accurately measure speeds up to 400 miles per hour, which, along with the chronograph sub-dials, has led to its reputation as a racing watch. In fact, all these functions are powered by the caliber 4130 with the COSC certifies precision. The exclusive Everose 116 505 is created from a block of 18K Everose gold as well as the genuine Rolex Oyster bracelet with Oysterlock clasp in 18K rose gold in stunning condition. The bezel is 18K Everose gold with a fixed engraved tachymeter scale. The watch here offered is a wonderful specimen in attractive and very well preserved featuring a black lacquer dial with very rare and uncommon set baguette-cut sapphires in a Rainbow color scheme and a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. This dial was especially requested by the previous costumer directly during a service in Rolex, which was happy to satisfy his desires considering the long relationship between the Maison and the collector. The whole watch shines thanks to the pink gold used while the sapphires in rainbow colors and the pink-gold subdials give a nice contrast to the black lacquered dial. Sold by the previous owner, it is, furthermore, offered with its original warranty card.
