Editor’s note: One of the biggest takeaways from John Mayerís Daytona-fest that was his Talking Watches Part 2 was the fact that the dude managed to blow up 2016ís yellow gold and green-dialled Daytona overnight. If you can get it now, get it. Hereís our original review (and Jasonís stunning pics) of this yellow gold stunner … Though the devastatingly cool new steel Daytona is the Rolex chronograph de jour,*this year the*brand also*released new variations of their classic chrono in white and yellow gold. Today, weíre having a look at the reference 116508, in 18 carat yellow gold with a new green dial Ė a colour combination that no Aussie can resist. The reference 116508 is the same 40mm Oyster case, powered by the calibre 4130, accurate to within -2/+2 a day. Indeed, the only difference between this reference and earlier models is the dial. But what a dial. Yellow gold versions of the Rolex Daytona are most commonly seen with black or champagne dials Ė the green is stunning in its sheen and richness.
