Last year was the big one, the steel Rolex Daytona Ceramic 116500LN replica watch. Dreams came true for many collectors, waitlists are still extremely long and people are willing to pay a 50% premium to get their hands on one. A success? No, a commercial blast. Rolex has been listening to expectations. Indeed, there is no more black or silver dial options (at least without diamonds) for the metallic bracelet versions. Still, the Daytona story is not over yet, and some references are missing from the catalogue, in particular the white gold versions. No more leather strap options either. In fact at present there are only 4 options in white gold available in the current collection (Last year’s blue dial version, and 3 with diamonds – black, black mother of pearl or white mother of pearl). This is short. Too short? Probably.
Thus, for Baselworld 2017 Rolex could come with a new Daytona white gold ceramic replica collection, and of course with the Ceramic bezel on it – it has been so successful that it would be a shame not to use it. We have 4 versions in our mind:
Silver brushed dial, black contrasting sub-dials, white gold bracelet
Silver brushed dial, black contrasting sub-dials, leather strap
Black dial, silver contrasting sub-dials, white gold bracelet
Black dial, silver contrasting sub-dials, leather strap
Of course, this Baselworld 2017 Rolex Daytona White Gold collection needed to be differentiated from the steel versions. Thus, the sub-counters are different, with a sort-of panda look (which has always been part of the gold versions) and a silver option instead of the white dial offered on the steel Rolex daytona chronograph replica version – and this version has something of a silver 6263.
