Watching David Dobrik content is a guilty pleasure of mine. It is mindless fun when you’re just looking to unwind, kickback, and have a laugh or two. Known as the “Vlog Squad”, Dobrik is surrounded by a recurring group of fellow vloggers and in some instances major celebrities looking to engage with his massive fanbase. One friend of David Dobrik is the singer Madison Beer. To promote her new album, she joined Dobrik on his now filmed VIEWS podcast. During the chat and interview, Beer can be spotted wearing a yellow gold Rolex Daytona ref. 116528.
While Beer has been spotted wearing other Rolex watches, such as a Datejust, any time I catch her filming with Dobrik she always seems to have her trusted Daytona on. The watch looks great on her wrist, and is further proof of why watches do not necessarily need gender labels. As a singer with around 22,600,000 followers on Instagram, she could likely have any watch she wanted.
The fact this Daytona seems to be Beer’s daily wearer is evidence that its design speaks to her taste and lifestyle, and I am all for it. When you look at how Rolex categorises these watches on their site, Submariners, GMTs and Daytonas all fall under the “Professional” category. This is why I have begun referring to the aforementioned watches as professional, sport, or tool watches versus “men’s Rolex”.
The Rolex Daytona ref. 116528 yellow gold with white dial is 40mm in diameter and utilises the in-house Rolex caliber 4130 with 72 hours of power reserve and a vertical clutch column wheel chronograph architecture. The bezel is made of gold, versus the more modern ceramic, evoking the classical aesthetic of the Rolex Daytona but in a modern build and diameter. It is such a versatile watch, being both precious and robust. It’s the kind of watch you can wear to both black tie formal affairs, or as Beer does below on a trip to Disneyland.
