2017 Rolex Cosmograph Daytona on Oysterflex Bracelet

12:42 PM

At Baselworld 2017, Rolex introduced a new Cosmograph Daytona (Reference #116518LN) equipped with their Oysterflex elastomer bracelet. Another material innovation that makes this configuration unique is the black Cerachrom bezel, featured on the 116500LN stainless steel Daytona introduced at the trade show last year. The 2017 Oysterflex Daytonas are available in yellow, white or Everose gold.

The Oysterflex elastomer bracelet was originally introduced on the Everose gold Yacht-Master (Reference # 116655) in 2015. It combines a super-elastic metal blade with high-performance black elastomer to provide both flexibility and reliability. On the 2017 Daytona it is fitted with either a yellow, white or Everose gold Oysterlock safety clasp to prevent accidental opening. The clasp also features an Easylink rapid extension system that allows the wearer to increase the length of the bracelet by 5mm.

The Oyster case of the Daytona measures 40mm in diameter and is sealed by a Triplock winding crown. It is waterproof up to 100 meters and has a power reserve of 72 hours. The champagne-colored dial has a sunray finish with black sub-dials displaying the chronograph functions. A 4130 self-winding mechanical movement powers the functions with a precision of -2/+2 seconds per day after casing.
