This is the one you’ve been waiting for. Steel Daytona. Cerachrom bezel. Drop the mic, cue the applause. The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona – reference 116500 to its friends – is a watch that lovers of the Big Crown have been clamouring for for years. And boy, have Rolex delivered. Not only is the bezel made from beautiful, impervious Cerachrom – but the design has been tweaked so that it evokes the Daytonas of yore. And the Australian RRP? $15,700. Not bad, not bad at all.
