The mesmerizing Rolex Daytona Rainbow watch

The renowned watchmakers from Rolex have recently added to their collection a new awesome piece named Daytona Rainbow. This radiant watch wants to be an indicator of wealth with the amount of precious metals and jewels that it carries: the finish of the case and of the bracelet is of 18 carat gold, there are 36 diamonds spread around the dial and on the case, and the most important ones are the 36 rainbow colored sapphires, namely red, orange, yellow, green, blue, mauve and pink.

The three counters contrast with the black color of the dial outlining the precious jewels and metal. The watch is waterproof until 100 meters (330 feet), it has a chronograph that is accurate to within 1/8 of a second, a 30 minute counter at 3 o’clock and a 12 hour one at 9 o’clock, a small seconds hand at 6 o’clock and it is self-winding. It is working at 28800 vibrations per hour.

Letting the technical details aside probably the most difficult problem with this watch is finding some clothes to match it with. But once that is dealt with everything else should tick the right way.
