  • Artist Biography

    Rolex

    Swiss • 1905

    Founded in 1905 England by Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis as Wilsdorf & Davis, it soon became known as the Rolex Watch Company in 1915, moving its headquarters to Geneva in 1919. Like no other company, the success of the wristwatch can be attributed to many of Rolex's innovations that made them one of the most respected and well-known of all luxury brands. These innovations include their famous "Oyster" case — the world's first water resistant and dustproof watch case, invented in 1926 — and their "Perpetual" — the first reliable self-winding movement for wristwatches launched in 1933. They would form the foundation for Rolex's Datejust and Day-Date, respectively introduced in 1945 and 1956, but also importantly for their sports watches, such as the Explorer, Submariner and GMT-Master launched in the mid-1950s.

    One of its most famous models is the Cosmograph Daytona. Launched in 1963, these chronographs are without any doubt amongst the most iconic and coveted of all collectible wristwatches. Other key collectible models include their most complicated vintage watches, including references 8171 and 6062 with triple calendar and moon phase, "Jean Claude Killy" triple date chronograph models and the Submariner, including early "big-crown" models and military-issued variants.

Ref. 116506
The reference 116506 was introduced at Baselworld in 2013 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona model and is the first Daytona offered by the brand to be encased in the noblest of metals – platinum. Sporting an extremely attractive ice blue dial exclusively used on platinum models by Rolex, the Cerachrom bezel contrasts with a charming hint of chestnut brown, transcending the whole appearance of the timepiece. The present example, with dated International Guarantee card of 2014 is one of the very first and is presented in excellent condition. Complete with full accessories it is available with immediate shipping.
