ROLEX DAYTONA 116519 40mm Beach Turqoise White Gold
The question then isn’t “Is Rolex bold enough?” it’s, are you bold enough for this Rolex? This white gold example with a turquoise blue dial was released in the early 2000s as a part of a low production special series of Daytonas that would go on to be nicknamed the “Beach” Daytonas. The series consisted of four loudly colored models, two mother of pearl dials in yellow and pink, a green hardstone dial, and this blue lacquer one.The Beach Daytona series, in general, are very reminiscent of the Stella dial Day-Dates Rolex released in the 1970s, but of the Beach series, this model most reminds me of the Stella collection because of the lacquer dial. It’s perfectly smooth and reflective and gives off a perpetually wet look. Incidentally, the use of lacquer instead of, say, mother of pearl is also what makes the favorite model in the Beach collection. The blue on the dial is a Tiffany blue.
