Luxurious Rolex Daytona 116500 Cerachrom Bezel

Now, it should be noted that prior to 2016, Rolex had introduced the Cerachrom bezel to other models in the Daytona line, but only in solid gold and platinum. While these are incredible pieces, they are also unapologetically luxurious and out of the price range of many collectors. However, these first models paved the way for the rest of the collection, as they were the first Cerachrom bezels to be made from a single piece of ceramic.  
Many collectors thought Rolex would release a stainless steel Daytona with a ceramic bezel for the collection’s 50th anniversary in 2013, but the model that debuted that year was a solid 950 platinum version with a striking ice-blue dial and chestnut brown Ceracrhom bezel. a 40 mm stainless steel Oyster case with a black Cerachrom ceramic bezel, and a stainless steel Oyster strap, the new Daytona is exactly what everyone wants in a Rolex chronograph.
However, just because the stainless steel and ceramic Daytona are much more affordable than its precious metal counterpart doesn’t mean it’s actually easier to actually buy at the retail level. Today, even nearly five years after its initial release, the Ref. 116500 is still a difficult fake Rolex watch to find and add to your collection. Even on the secondary market, where ref. 116500LN watches have been trading at double to triple the retail price, these Rolex Daytona models are still selling very fast.
The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona ref. 116500 features a 40mm stainless steel Oyster case with a Triplock screw-down crown with three sealing zones to ensure that the precision technology inside is protected from water damage up to a depth of 100 m. The Daytona’s Oyster case also includes a sturdy screw-down caseback, and screw-down chronograph pushers to prevent accidental operation underwater.  Rolex Daytona 4fb26b255bd4819c7ab15d61d1421615-600x400
Unlike the earlier Daytona models, this current representation features fully solid links and solid end links for a robust design that is more resistant to stretching and wear. In addition, the satin outer bracelet and highly polished center links of this stainless steel Oyster bracelet create a beautiful dimension and luxurious style perfectly suited for work, leisure, or motorsports.
The clasp of the Rolex Daytona currently houses the brand’s proprietary Easylink extension system, which allows the wearer to instantly extend the strap by approximately 5 mm without the use of any tools. While it does not offer the same range of adjustment as the Glidelock extension system found on various Rolex replica watches models, the 5 mm provided by the Easylink system is sufficient to ensure a proper fit in most activities.
