The Rolex Daytona 116500LN for a Special Day
Given its fixed position at the top of the Rolex pyramid, and the stunning auction results from the vintage watch market continue to surface, Rolex Daytona is an absolutely obvious potential watch brand when it should be on your radar this Father's Day.
We all remember the significant fanfare that came along with the first ceramic-bezel Daytona in stainless steel - the reference 116500 - and though the replica watch was released a few years ago, these models remain a proper pain to track down, with multi-year waiting lists present at retailers worldwide. As appealing as the ceramic bezel is, we still have a soft spot for the steel-cased Daytona 116520, which sports a matching engraved steel bezel.
The proportions of the modern Daytona have remained largely unchanged since the model migrated to a self-winding caliber in 1988. A 40mm case, screw-down pushers, and pronounced crown guards, paired with a 3-register chronograph dial layout ensure the Daytona retains instantly identifiable by any self-respecting watch enthusiast. Similar to the Explorer II, the Daytona is designed to go from day to night, and from the boardroom to the beach with ease, and given their ability to retain value and appreciate, they're one of the greatest investments in the watch world right now.
