2016 Daytona Ceramic Ref 116500LN


It seems official MSRP price has been released overseas but not yet in Rolex  AD HK.

The Overseas price is US$12,400

Converted to HKD is HK$96,100

Since there is launch of this new Daytona soon in August/September.

There we can see there is something happened.

The dealer is keen on keeping up old stock of Ref 116520.

So we can see two extremes, price is very high as Black HK$97,000 and White HK$94,000 which is almost $9,000 higher than it as in 2015.

Rolex Had discontinued the production of older version Ref 116520.

So there is lesser new unit in the market, What I can see is that a lot of people will keep waiting for new one 116500LN, and on the other hand, many people will try to buy the pre-owned one which still stand at a quite reasonable price say for black HK$76,000 to 88,000.

So, what is your choice?

1. Wait for new Daytona C Ref 116500LN ?
2. Go to buy high for new old stock of Ref 116520?
3. Go buy a pre-owned 116520?

Note , As for those who made a reservation to me on new Daytona Ceramic Ref 116500LN.

I would like to collect deposit of US$4,000 or will have hard time to mobilize my cash flow to buy for all you Fans of the new Daytona. of course those who offers me deposit would get it with priority!

Up to now I have 11 reserved for White and 1 black!
(1 from BR, AU, SIN, UK and rest are all from the Philippines.)

It is quite sarcastic that HKWF being a HK Blogger does not get any request from HK... LOL!

Note that one renowned HK Rolex AD in TST has been offering their client with HKD$140K for the new Daytona C. Knowing that the list has been queuing up over 60.

This new Daytona C will create a lot of heats at least 5X of GMT Master II BLNR Batman and Deep Sea Blue...

Let's watch out!

PS , I almost forget the Singaporean Friend is actually working in HK, so he is a HK potential buyer.

how much are you selling? and u think what colour is better? does it worth to collect the current version of Daytona now? thanks

I really don't know what the initial price will be, we speculate over price on the HK$96,000
Likely up to HKD$120,000 or more.
Then go down to HKD$96,000 after 1 year to 6 months.
Base on my personal opinion, the 2016 one is more practical for use as it is ceramic bezel.
And it is not advisable to buy the current one Ref 116520LN as price is so high now
up to HK$10,000.

Lets wait for the Ref 116500LN

WHITE is better...

I have 12 order with just 1 black!

hi if i wanna order from u, what should i do? and how much are u selling? u think the current one Ref 116520LN price will up or down later? i think there are lots of 116520LN on the market now.....

If you want to order send me US$4000 as deposit, and that I could get a better deal when I get hold some of the biggest dealer in EU, Pricewise I really don't know, definitely is not HK$96,000, likely about HK$130,000 in the few months (2-3motnhs I speculate).
Buying at what price is your decision, as many other people sending money for deposit they want to get it ASAP when the watch is released. if anytime you back off not want to pursuit of order, I refund you.

dear hk snob
this is anonymous the one that ask you about daytona ceramic steel
a lot thks again for your generous answers
i inquired this weekend in makati greenbelt 5 washington rolex watch
boutique about rolex daytona ceramic they said they already sold 3pcs since
august 15 and the price is p722000- only could you verify with your
customers and friends here in philippines if it is true.
thanks a lot


HK Snob said...


I doubt as P722,000 is about HK$120,000
I really would go to buy if they have

As in HK the AD is selling HK$13,5000 for White that is Peso 810,000

is that Possible, But I think you can verify at PWC, they should know!

Hello HK Snob, I am curious what the currently prices are for both the black and white. Will be making a trip back next week and want to find one.

HK Snob said...

Price is getting high again on Daytona as they reduced production more than 50% in 2017.

White May be HK$140K, Black may be 130K HKD now.
