The Rolex Rainbow Daytona in detail
Special features of the Rolex Rainbow bezel
It does not take a specialist to recognise a Rolex Rainbow model at first glance. With a colourful bezel that shines with sapphires ranging from red, orange, yellow and green to blue and violet, it has earned itself worldwide recognition. In total, 36 baguette-cut diamonds - rectangular, straight cut - adorn the bezel of the Rolex Daytona Rainbow making the watch a true masterpiece of Haute Horlogerie.
As a general rule of thumb, you can marvel at eight sparkling gemstones on the dial of the Rolex Rainbow diamond. Rolex, however, has produced some special models with a further 11 diamonds provided for index marking. If you cannot get enough of these gorgeous things then you can purchase models of the Rolex Rainbow in which the lugs and crown protector are adorned with brilliant-cut white diamonds. With over 100 gemstones, the Rolex Rainbow watch is a true eye-catcher that definitely sparkles on the wrist.
The stunning design of the Rolex Rainbow Daytona
When looking to buy a Rolex Rainbow watch, choose between a 40-millimetre watch case made of 18-carat white, yellow or Everose gold. The three-row Oyster bracelet of the Rolex Rainbow diamond is made of 18-carat gold and is designed both for security and optimal wearing comfort.
The yellow gold Rolex Rainbow Daytona model with a matt black dial and yellow diamond is particularly impressive. While the three-pointed Rolex crown is visible on the 12, the three, six and nine o'clock positions have gold Arabic numerals. One of its most standout features is the three discreet subdials at three, six and nine o'clock: they serve as the seconds, 30 minutes and 12-hour counters.
The technology check
Looking good is not the only positive about Rolex Rainbow watches - on the contrary: Since 2001, the manufacturer's 4130 caliber has been ticking with chronometer precision. And, as with every model in the Daytona series from Rolex, you don't have to forgo the coveted stop function in the Rainbow model.
The caseback, pushers and crown are screwed together to ensure water-resistance of up to 100 metres. Thanks to its manufacture from niobium-zirconium alloy, the spring is insensitive to magnetic fields. The Rolex Rainbow has a power reserve of 72 hours; if the chronograph function is switched off, this reserve is 66 hours.
