The question everyone wants to know is: why in the world did Rolex release a blue 50th Anniversary Daytona 116506 and not something green to match all the other 50 year models? Upon this release we almost had to check the calendar to make sure it wasn’t April Fool’s Day.
The new all 950 platinum chronograph from the crown features an “Ice Blue” dial with brown subdial rings and a matching “Chestnut Brown” Cerachrom bezel. The markings on the bezel are also a thin layer of platinum material.
With this color combo, many will buy it because it is a Rolex, but would any other brand be able to pull off light blue and brown?
Many Rolex fans were hoping for an all steel version with the same bezel to replace the high-polish steel bezel that scratches from looking at it. Maybe next year!
