The Rolex Rainbow Daytona In Everose Gold

The most collectible modern Rolex returns in Everose.

There aren't too many modern Rolex that become cult items almost instantly – the Rainbow Daytona is one that did. Available in yellow gold and white gold in extremely limited numbers, these watches have become the choice of rockstars and Hollywood elites, as well as the most prominent collectors in the world. And now, out of nowhere, we have it in Everose! The bezel is set with 36 baguette-cut sapphires in a rainbow gradation, the mid-case is set with 56 brilliant-cut diamonds, the dial is black lacquer with counters in 18 kt pink gold crystals, and the hands themselves are rose gold. This is about as close to an artisanal watch as Rolex makes.

Initial Thoughts

Demand for the Rainbow in white and yellow has been slowly picking up steam for the past few years and they have been trading for more than double retail for some time now. To see a third guise of this mega-Daytona is a surprise, and you can be sure this is not a watch that will be sitting in windows – that's for sure. Expect this one to go to those that already own a Rainbow or two and while its look may not be to most's tastes, this watch is one of the most interesting and important in the current Rolex line-up.
