                   Rolex is introducing a scintillant gem-set version
                   of the Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona.
                   Created in 1963, this watch has established an
                   extraordinary track record in the world of motor
                   sport, rising to the rank of an icon. On this new
                   18 ct Everose gold version, in lieu of the emblem-
                   atic tachymetric scale, the bezel is set with a
                   gradation of sapphires in rainbow hues. The case
                   is adorned with 56 brilliant-cut diamonds set into
                   the lugs and crown guard, and the dial features
                   11 baguette-cut sapphire hour markers, each of
                   which matches the colour of the corresponding
                   point on the bezel. The chronograph counters are
                   in pink Gold Crystals, a material with a particular
                   shimmer effect, created during the crystallization
                   of a pink gold alloy by means of a special process
                   developed by Rolex.
                       Like all Rolex watches, the new Cosmograph
                   Daytona carries the Superlative Chronometer cer-
                   tification, which ensures excellent performance
                   on the wrist.

                                                   of virtually scratchproof sapphire. The waterproof

                                                   Cosmograph Daytona’s high-precision movement.
