Excluding the mythical references 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 is 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-line diamond-set bezel, representation of the rigorous standards in quality Rolex is particularly skilled in. Moreover it also presents a composition of dark mother-of-pearl dial that matches perfectly the diamond-set bezel and creates an absolutely perfect frame without appearing excessive. The case is also protected by the original films that Rolex mounted to not scratch the precious case, so it remains immaculate as if it had just been produced by the factory. The watch also comes with its original Rolex Card Warranty that completes this beautiful variant of the Daytona line.
