The Rolex Daytona White Gold: A Shooting Star in Precious Metal
Of all the models in precious metal, the Rolex Daytona White Gold is by far the most sought-after timepiece in the world. The greyish hue of the 18-carat white gold underlines the sportiness of the racing chronograph and offers first-class luxury with maximum understatement. Only connoisseurs with a trained eye will recognise that this is a Daytona in white gold and not a stainless steel model.
Whether you are looking for attractive Rolex Daytona white gold prices or a stainless steel model, you will find the model you are looking for in our online shop! Every watch is inspected for authenticity by certified CHRONEXT watchmakers and comes with our 24-month warranty.
Gold Medal for the Rolex Daytona in White Gold
The first models of the Rolex Daytona in white gold were launched in the 1990s as reference 16519. However, the Daytona has only become really popular in recent years. This is mainly due to the attractive configuration options because, in contrast to the stainless steel Daytona, the choice of luxurious gold models is much greater. While you can buy the stainless steel collection exclusively with a steel bracelet and with a white or black dial, you can choose from several combinations for the white gold version. Two interesting versions, in particular, have attracted the attention of numerous collectors and enthusiasts in recent years:
- Rolex Daytona white gold/rubber with Oysterflex bracelet (ref. 116509)
- Rolex Daytona white gold/blue with blue sunburst dial (Ref. 116519LN)
Good reasons for precious metal
Not despite the hype on stainless steel, but precisely because of the stainless steel hype, buying a Rolex Daytona in white gold is particularly attractive. For one thing, the white gold Daytona is a welcome alternative to the stainless steel version that is sought after everywhere. On the other hand, the Daytona price also plays a decisive role. Thanks to the now extremely high market prices for the stainless steel reference 116500, the difference to the precious metal Daytona is no longer quite so great. Another aspect that should not be underestimated is the versatile design options of the white gold model. The Oysterflex strap is one of the best rubber straps in the watch industry, underlining the sporty look of the Daytona while offering excellent wearing comfort. The available dials (five for the white gold bracelet, three for the Oysterflex bracelet) either highlight the watch or blend harmoniously into the overall composition.
Rolex and white gold: A unique combination
Hardly any other manufacturer has as much knowledge as Rolex in the development, production and processing of exclusive raw materials. At one of its four locations, in Plan-les-Ouates about a quarter of an hour from Geneva, Rolex maintains an eleven-storey building that houses the manufacturer's main laboratory and a gold foundry. Here, every alloy used by Rolex is developed in-house, cast and finally processed into high-quality cases, bracelets, hands and indices. Every material used by the Geneva manufacturer is subject to the highest quality standards. The Rolex Daytona in white gold has an 18-carat alloy that, in contrast to stainless steel, is somewhat warmer and greyer and quickly casts its spell over you. The weight of white gold is also quite a bit higher compared to stainless steel. It is precisely the mix of understatement and luxury that makes the precious metal one of the most attractive materials in the field of high-quality timepieces.
