The Rolex 116508 Green dial and the Rolex 116509 blue dial

At Baselworld 2016, Rolex stunned us (or not) with the new ceramic Daytona 116500ln. Other than the new steel Daytona, Rolex also released two precious-metal versions which are the 116508 green dial and the 116509 blue dial. These two watches have added long-awaited colors to the Daytona collection.

You can see that the tachymeter scale on the bezel of the 116508 has been updated. The green sunburst dial is simply stunning with the yellow gold case. The green color here is a very dark forest green or some may call it Rolex Racing Green. It looks very sharp and classic, almost royal. There are red sub-dial rings and red color markers at each hour marker. The result is simply Super! It will surely be a hit as it is the first new dial for the YG Daytona in years, left alone the use of green, the signature color of Rolex.



The 116509 this year is updated with a blue sunburst dial. The colder tone of the blue color matches very well with the tone of white gold. The dial has red sub-dial rings and hands and markers made of white gold.

If you already have a steel Daytona, you might want to consider these two models. The green dial version is especially sharp in yellow gold case. It is certainly one of the killer combos you will find in the collection. However, the white gold version is good for low-profile people. Either will be a good choice for you.
If you need to buy one of these watches, we can get one for you at certain discount.
