The Rolex Daytona in steel, with Cerachrom bezel
This isn’t the first Rolex Daytona chronograph to receive their ceramic “Cerachrom” bezel (the outer ring that surrounds the watch face), but it’s safe to say that it’s the one everyone’s been waiting for.
Last year, for the 50th anniversary of the Daytona, instead of a classic steel model with a black bezel, Rolex introduced a platinum Daytona with a blue dial and brown bezel — handsome, but also unabashedly a showstopping luxury wristwatch.
This year, at last, we’ve got the Daytona in steel, and with a black Cerachrom bezel. It may be the Rolex Daytona everyone wants, but it is definitely not the Rolex Daytona everyone is going to get; there’s apt to be a very long waiting list.
