2001 Rolex Daytona Beach 18K WG (Ref. 116519) Green Chrysoprase Stone Dial W/ Rolex Guarantee Paper
Unapologetically bold yet perfectly executed, the Rolex Daytona Beach draws inspiration from the colorful history of the namesake of the Crown’s halo model by utilizing perfectly cut stones and lacquers. The ref. 116519 Rolex Daytona Beach was produced in an exceptionally low quantity and was offered in 4 different colors, a yellow or pink mother-of-pearl dial, a blue turquoise dial, and the deep apple-green Chrysoprase stone dial featured here. All are accompanied by matching lizard skins straps with white gold deployment buckles and accessories.
Due to the bold nature and diminutive production numbers, the Rolex Daytona Beach models have grown in popularity at an exponential rate. And are especially celebrated as a colorful anomaly from the characteristically rigid personality that Rolex carries to this day. The example here is presented in exceptionally well-preserved and original condition, featuring its original Rolex guarantee paper as well as its original and matching green lizard skin bracelet.
