ROLEX Cosmograph Daytona. Reference 116519 LN with Meteorite Dial. New Model 2021.


Rolex is presenting three new versions of its Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona. In this 4K video we show you the version in 18 carat white gold fitted with a monobloc Cerachrom bezel in black ceramic with a tachymetric scale, and an Oysterflex bracelet. The other two watches, one in 18 carat yellow gold and the other in 18 carat Everose gold, have a metal bezel with a tachymetric scale and are on an Oyster bracelet.

We are also proud to have our partner Vontobel provide us with in-depth industry knowledge, featured in their latest “Swiss watch industry outlook”. You can find it here:​​​

The material which adorns the dial of these new Cosmograph Daytona watches – metallic meteorite – comes from an asteroid that exploded millions of years ago. On the voyage between planets, fragments of this natural extraterrestrial material, primarily composed of iron and nickel, cool by a few degrees Celsius every million years, creating unique, distinctive crystallization within the material that is impossible to recreate on Earth. Metallic meteorite is rare and challenging to work with, but once it is cut into thin sections and a chemical treatment is applied, the great beauty of its interwoven internal structure is revealed. These fascinating and varied formations are known as Widmanstätten patterns.
