  • Catalogue Essay

    First released in 2016, the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona reference 116500LN found instant success. For many years, enthusiasts had been hoping for a steel Daytona with ceramic bezel that would echo the references 6263 and 6241, with a contrasting, black-colored bezel rather than a metal one – and their patience was finally rewarded.

    Still powered by the in-house caliber 4130, the reference 116500LN came offered in two dial variants – black and white – and both have become the most sought-after models in Rolex’s entire catalogue. Virtually unobtainable now at retail, it remains nonetheless an extremely attractive, durable, and versatile timepiece for any collector.

    The present example Rolex Cosmograph Daytona ref. 116500LN with a white dial is offered in excellent overall condition with minimal signs of use and wear. Accompanied by its full set of accessories, the present example will surely delight collectors who would like to skip the waiting list and acquire one now.

  • 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.
