Baselworld 2016: Rolex Cosmograph Daytona in stainless steel with new Cerachrom bezel & pricing

by Nick Gould on March 16, 2016

Baselworld 2016 is here and Rolex have teased us in the last couple of days with a couple of short clips on Instagram and Facebook.  We had a feeling we would see an updated Daytona and our guess proved correct!  Introducing the new updated Rolex Cosmograph Daytona in stainless steel with Cerachrom bezel.

The modern Rolex Cosmograph Daytona finally receives the scratch resistant Cerachrom bezel, replacing the previous stainless steel bezel.  This means no more scratches on the bezel and makes the watch look like its older vintage brothers!  The font for the bezel is usually found on precious metal models but it has now been used on the new stainless steel models.  The 904L stainless steel case remains at 40mm.

The dial of the Daytona remains unchanged apart from the sub dial registers. On the white lacquered dial version they are now a black colour with white markings, which makes them more legible.  It is also reminiscent of the previous 16520 model which had coloured sub dials for the white dial.    The black lacquered dial remains the same as the previous version.

We like the updated Daytona and are pleased to see the Cerachrom bezel on the stainless steel models & we will be bringing you a hands on review of the watches very soon!  So keep an eye out for it.
