The Rolex Daytona continues to be one of the most popular watch models that Rolex has ever produced. Its newest iteration, the Rolex Daytona White Gold Oysterflex 116519LN, was released in 2017. During its initial unveiling at Baselworld, it was enthusiastically received by the press and collectors alike.
However, Rolex has recently made some updates to the Rolex Daytona White Gold Oysterflex 116519LN. With that in mind, we believe that it is a good idea to take a closer look at this watch. Below, we will review its technical specifications, its overall design, and discuss some of the new features that Rolex has made available.
The Rolex Daytona White Gold Oysterflex 116519LN is powered by the 4130 caliber, which is one of Rolex’s newest movements. It is produced in-house by Rolex. The movement is perpetual and self-winding. Additionally, this watch has a chronographic complication as well.
The watch has a power reserve of 72 hours. Previously, the standard was somewhere around 40 or 50 hours, but 72 seems to be becoming the industry standard now for this, which is good for consumers across the board. The watch is water resistant for up to 330 feet, which is to be expected from a non-dive Rolex timepiece.
The Rolex Daytona White Gold Oysterflex 116519LN is offered in three different styles. These include white gold, yellow gold, and Everose gold. The last one of these is made from a combination of different gold metals and alloys, which give it an elegant light pink hue.
One of the reasons this watch has remained so consistently popular is because of its excellent design style. It perfectly combines Rolex’s need for sleekness and minimalism with an elegant sense of panache. It manages to do so in a way that grabs attention without being gaudy. In short, the watch not only looks great, but it is incredibly versatile from a design standpoint.
In 2021, Rolex decided to offer some updates to this watch. It is important to note that these changes were not deemed significant enough by the company to warrant an entirely new model number. However, because this watch is so popular among collectors, the news of the changes quickly generated interest and attention from the horological press.
These changes include the addition of meteorite black counters and the implementation of the yellow gold and rose gold cases, both of which have proved to be popular among consumers.
Rubber B is proud to offer a SwimSkin Alligator watch strap for this model of watch. Even though it has been constructed to mimic the look and feel of leather, it is made completely from 100% vulcanized rubber. It is 100% waterproof, making it ideal for all kinds of aquatic and sporting activities. It is also a great choice for those who like the look and feel of the animal hide but support eco-friendly and cruelty-free products. You can learn more about this strap here.
