The 24 hours of Le Mans celebrates its centenary, and Rolex has not missed the opportunity to present a particular version of its already renowned Daytona.
First, the differences start with the new Cerachrom ring with the number 100 finished in red, which is impossible not to notice, while the white counters emerge from the bright black dial.
We find a clear reference to the Daytona Paul Newman, already a very successful watch from the past. The Oyster case in white gold is equipped with a transparent sapphire case-back, allowing you to see the 4132 calibers of oscillating gold mass.
It is not over here because the other big gem is in the dial’s details. Instead of counting up to 12 hours, the hour counter, in honor of the historic competition, rises up to 24 hours, establishing an indissoluble link with the race. The central second hand allows the reading of 1/8 of a second while the two counters on the dial measure the passing of the minutes. This makes it easier for drivers to plan the route times and related driving tactics carefully.
Whoever wins the Le Mans will get a beautiful Daytona 116500LN 100 years 24 hours Le Mans, with a dedicated engraving on the case back. While for all of us, the opportunity to buy this jewel will be related to our spending capacity.
Listed on the Daytona Le Mans starts from 42,700 euros excluding taxes. If you want to dream, you can look at it in all its beauty here.
