While some might find the multicoloured gemstones peculiar, perhaps reminiscent of an Elton John concert costume, the Rolex Daytona Rainbow Replica is memorable in form and impressive in detail. And it is also, almost unbelievably, more desirable than practically any other modern Rolex.
The bezel is set with 36 baguette-cut sapphires in graduated hues, starting with red at 12 o’clock, and transitioning to yellow, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet. The Rolex Replica stones are splendid in colour; other watchmakers have done similar “rainbow” bezels but not quite as impressive.
While the original Rainbow featured diamond hour markers, the new Rainbow uses coloured gemstones, with each hour marker being a baguette-cut sapphire that echoes the bezel.
Inset onto the black lacquer dial, the chronograph registers are the same material as on the original Fake Rolex Watches Rainbow, being made of “Gold Crystals”. It’s actually a pink gold alloy treated to create a crystalline structure in the metal, giving it the appearance of semiprecious stone.
The lugs and crown guard are set with 56 brilliant-cut diamonds, though they seem almost like an afterthought compared to the party around the bezel.
In the standard Daytona style, the 40mm case and bracelet are 18k Everose gold, Rolex’s proprietary rose gold alloy that’s fade resistant. And the movement is the cal. 4130, an in-house Rolex Daytona Replica Watches chronograph that’s regulated to -2 to +2 seconds a day, the norm for a Rolex “Superlative Chronometer”.
Like all Rolex movements the cal. 4130 is technically solid, with all the features expected of a modern chronograph, namely a column wheel and vertical clutch, plus a free-sprung balance wheel that’s standard Rolex.
