About the brand
More than just the most recognized name in watches, Rolex has become one of the most recognized brand names period. Founded in 1905 by visionary businessman Hans Wilsdorf, Rolex’s pioneering legacy set the stage for all of modern watchmaking.
From the first automatic wristwatch to the first waterproof timepiece, there’s no shortage of innovations from the legendary watchmaker. In the 1950s, Rolex began designing tool watches for deep-sea diving, aviation, mountain climbing, and more. This trademark utility and consistency went on to become a signifier of luxury and prestige that persists to this day.
About the Beach Daytona
The Beach Daytona series, in general, are very reminiscent of the Stella dial Day-Dates Rolex released in the 1970s. It’s perfectly smooth and reflective dial gives off a perpetually wet look. Incidentally, the use of lacquer instead of, say, mother of pearl is also what makes this our favorite model in the Beach collection.
Another detail on the dial that sets this watch apart from most other Daytonas is the white gold Roman numeral hour indices complete with a watchmaker’s four for visual balance. Roman numerals are not very common on sports watches in general, though we have seen them on other precious metal Daytonas. Overall, we think they work really well on this timepiece. The larger size of the white gold indices as compared to baton markers helps add a bit of balance to the stunning green background.
