Rolex Unveils New Platinum Daytona and GMT-Master II Watches
Watch enthusiast have been anxiously expecting to see what Rolex would bring to the table at Baselworld 2013 on the occasion of Daytona’s 50th anniversary. They probably expected a brand new model, but the luxury watch manufacturer decided to do a little something else. Rolex has unveiled two fresh versions of older models: a GMT-Master II and a Platinum Daytona, both with new color variations.
The Daytona keeps its original 40mm dimension, but brings a new light blue dial and a brown cerachrom bezel. The color combination is classy and quite alluring, but more changes would have been very welcomed as well. Inside the case is a COSC automatic chronograph movement, calibre 4130, with a power reserve of 72 hours.
Also still 40mm in diameter, the new GMT-Master II is powered by a Rolex Calibre 3186. It features a two color cerachrom bezel insert with a day/night configuration. The colors are blue and black, as you can see in the photos below.
