This week’s featured watch is nothing short of sick. The Daytona itself is a gorgeous and impressive watch. Its various color and metal iterations suit each wearer’s unique sense of style. Like the classics? Go for a yellow gold white dial Daytona on a strap. Like it luxe? Bracelet all the way, and a platinum Daytona might just be up your alley. If you’re a lady who loves the men’s watch look, we’ve got a black dial Everrose Daytona with your name on it. But the Rolex Chocolate Daytona is our new personal favorite.
This gorgeous watch is a used Rolex we bought from a client last week in excellent condition. We could sit and marvel at the brightly polished Everrose case all day if the chocolate dial didn’t keep distracting us.
The dial features black Arabic markers, Everrose subdials, rose gold seconds track and rose gold hands (which are accurate up to 1/8th of a second – which you can also see from the fractions of seconds markers). The fixed black Cerachrom bezel is scratch resistant and UV-ray-proof, meaning it won’t ever lose its color. The bezel’s tachymeter engraving are painted rose gold to match the case.
A screw down crown and rose gold pushers ornament the side of the case.
We love the way the black leather strap ties the black ceramic bezel & markers together with the rose and chocolate. The rose gold Rolex Oyster deployant clasp is elegant and comfortable as always. To read more details on this watch, visit our listing for this Chocolate Daytona!
Rolex, one of the most distinguished watchmakers in history, released its update to the iconic Daytona line, the new Rolex Daytona 2013. Though many insiders were disappointed the revered brand didn’t completely overhaul the design with a fresh, technologically advanced version, the stylish new color schemes are leaving many breathless with anticipation. Here are some of the exciting new changes, even if they are fewer than expected.
A Classic Look For an Elite Audience
Outfitted in platinum, the new Rolex Daytona 2013 is certainly a luxurious piece of machinery, one that only a select few clients can acquire. The ice blue dial is subtly tasteful, and embodies the cool style of Rolex, fifty years into this model’s legendary reign. A complementary chocolate brown hue frames the face, setting off both the pearlescent dial and the chrome-like sheen of the platinum band. Flattering on both men and women, this latest version will set collectors back roughly $70,000, so you better start saving.
The Comfort of Familiarity
Of course, just because Rolex didn’t design a whole new Daytona doesn’t mean it’s somehow inferior in anyway. This beautiful timepiece boasts the same illustrious Rolex 4130 Calibre movement that you know and love. It’s simple, classic and infallible. There’s a reason Paul Newman sported this model as both an actor and a racecar driver. Plus, the oysterlock band and Easylink comfort extension are still available, standards that Rolex invented.
Even if you find yourself a bit disappointed that Rolex did not overhaul the Daytona’s design, rest assured this brand new beauty delivers in every other sphere of influence. It’s Rolex craftsmanship and modern style in an elite platinum package.
Baselworld 2013 gave Rolex the opportunity to showcase new colors for the Day-Date line of watches. These new color variants follow a trend Rolex started with the GMT-Master II and Daytona. The Day-Date is available in six colors and comes in three different gold cases. These new watches have a fresh feel and reflect the popularity of leather straps.

The addition of color is a bold move by Rolex, which has earned a reputation not only for quality, but conservatism. Each watch comes with a matching strap that compliments dial color. Cases come in 18ct yellow, white or Rolex’s Everose gold. Each metal case is available with its own variety of colored dials. New colors include: blue or cherry with white gold, green or cognac matched with yellow gold and chocolate or rhodium for Averros models. The new watches are the standard model except for color.
According to Rolex, the Day-Date was the first chronometer wristwatch with the date and day of the week spelt out on the dial when launched in 1956. Rolex characterizes the style of the new watches as elegant, but more informal than the original. Pricing for the new watches is not yet available.
Additional Rolex watches on display at Baselworld 2013 include the Yacht-Master II and Lady-DateJust PearlMaster. According to Baselworld, approximately 104,000 visitors from 100 countries attended Baselworld 2012. There were also 1,815 exhibitors from 45 countries. Baselworld 2013 numbers were equally as impressive. The event is highly regarded throughout the industry as a place to showcase the newest, best and most innovative watch designs.

Australian Adam Scott won the 2013 Masters at the Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia, on Sunday, April 14. His victory was won with great determination, excitement and style. Scott’s commitment to excellence extends far beyond his golf swing to include the finer things in life.

Scott’s affinity for the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Milgauss watch is a prime example of his commitment to excellence. This watch is sleek and exudes an air of sophistication. The metallic band is subtle and not at all gaudy, but the craftsmanship is world-class and a step above other time pieces. The Milgauss was designed to meet the needs of the scientific community and is capable of withstanding magnetic fields with a threshold of 1,000 gauss. The Milgauss has earned a reputation as the perfect magnetic shield through testing by CERN engineers.
Winning the 2013 Masters against Argentina’s Angel Cabrera was not an easy task for Scott. A sudden-death playoff between the two competitors was thrilling for sports fans to watch. Both players performed skillfully, but through determination Scott prevailed and took home one of the most prestigious victories in professional golf. This hard-fought victory was earned through sheer professionalism and impenetrable determination to win.

This gorgeous GMT is a rare model – the Rolex GMT Master 16758 features beautiful 18kt yellow gold features accented by diamond and ruby markers.

The watch’s distinct brown bezel is the perfect warm complement to its 18kt yellow gold case, dial and lugs. But what we like most about this watch is its contradictions – an elegant dress watch on a modern rubber strap, a rugged 24 hour unidirectional bezel with a factory diamond and ruby studded dial? Those combos create a fun and completely unique watch.
A relatively slim profile keeps this watch elegant (we’ve said it before, but as the ultimate explorer’s watch, the GMT needs to be ready to go from mountain treks to tuxes with ease).
Another feature we like about this watch is the preservation of the factory clasp. The B Swiss rubber strap is a fun customization, but you can’t beat Rolex’s quality when it comes to security – and this is a watch you don’t want to take any wrist risks with.
