50th anniversary Daytona Platona Ice Blue

Nov 29, 2019,19:14 PM

Just picked this one up, and it surpassed all my expectations !! It is heavy since the entire watch and bracelet is made from platinum, but once the watch is sized on the wrist, it is fully balanced and the weight is gone. The ice blue dial is just a masterpiece, changes colors depending on the light. The platinum circles around the subdials really standing out !! The dark brown accents of the bezel and dials trully works amazing with the light blue, and on top of all the platinum metal color and shine just wow, it is blueish silver matching the whole package.  One need to see it in the flesh to appreciate it!

(No Paul Newman, vintage valuation etc), this is definitively top 2/3 gorgeous Daytona.

I’ve had the luck of seeing both versions in the wild and in a glass display at an AD. Both are stunning in their own right. Wear yours in the best of health 🙏🏻

Rolex’s Flagship.

I agree with everything you say. The heft does just seem to float away once on he wrist. Rolex nailed it for me for a 50th Anniversary Daytona. The colours work perfectly. I love how the colours change. Mine says hi and this shot shows how different they ...  

Sublime, this photo. [nt]

One of my favorite

from this brand 👌👌

To be honest, I disliked it when it was unveiled, several years ago, and I had to see it in the metal to change my mind. The brown / blue combo is far from being evident on the official pictures, BUT...

In the real, it is another story. It belongs to this category of daring Rolex, with the Green Milgauss, the YachtMaster and the Air King. And it is a winner. Bravo, congratulations! Nicolas

I agree with you Nico.

Wasn’t 100% to begin with but am 110% convinced now. It’s funny how some watches grow on us. M.

Thank you all for the kind word !!

Very interesting comparison photo

I really prefer the platinum but there is obviously a big price difference

Brilliant!! [nt]
