A Pot of Gold at the End of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona Rainbow
As Rolex watch aficionados were eagerly anticipating the release of the new model Sky Dweller and the Submariner 114060M at BaselWorld 2012, they were treated to a timepiece which was hard to miss. The New Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Rainbow. The bezel is embedded with a rainbow array of Sapphire crystals. While some may think the watch is a tad to colorful, I can definitely see its mass appeal. This timepiece has everything going for it. Like those gorgeous, smart, rich, popular girls who sweep across college campuses watched with admiration and envy.
So here is the 10 reasons why you would want the New Oyster Perpetual Rolex Cosmograph Daytona
a) A Rolex - luxury watch brand known by all.
No explanation required as to the quality of the watch. Status symbol right on your wrist.
b) The Watch is an Oyster Perpetual - Click to read story behind the watch.
Groundbreaking innovation of 1926 exponentially increasing water resistance, dust resistance and shock absorbancy of the timepiece. (The Watch was actually advertised in a fishbowl for dramatic effect.) Now almost 90 years down the line Rolex is experimenting with a Rolex Deepsea Challenge, which can remain water resistant to a depth of 12,000 meters or 40,000 feet. This Oyster Perpetual Model is water resistant to 100 meters or 330 feet.
c) The timepiece is equipped with a Perpetual Rotor. The perpetual rotor is a highly efficient self-winding mechanism consisting of a half moon rotor, which is affixed to a central pivot, but which can pivot back and forth in response to the natural motion of the wearers wrist. Energy transmitted to the mainspring has a fifty hour power reserve.
d) The watch is a Superlative Chronometer. Superlative is a Rolex trademark to accentuate the distinction of a Chronometer. Unlike the Chronometer used in nautical navigation of days gone by. Chronometers today are a title of distinction and quality awarded to a watch movement, which has undergone stringent COSC testing performed over 15 days and nights.

e) If you are a professional race car driver or an enthusiast there of. The Daytona Cosmograph is equipped with two critical racing features. Designed for the professional race car driver in 1963, the Daytona Cosmograph is equipped with a chronograph and a tachymeter scale on the bezel enabling the driver to calculate elapsed time on the speedway and calculate average speed. This chronograph is accurate to a whopping 1/8th of a second with handy 30 minute counter placed at the 3 'o'clock and a 12 hour counter at the 9 'o'clock. The small seconds hand is situated above the 3 'o'clock.
f) If you happen to pass through a strong magnetic field - the oscillator of the timepiece is equipped with an innovative Paramagnetic blue PARACHROM hairspring which markedly increases the precision of the timepiece and increases its shock resistance up to 10 times more than that of a regular ferromagnetic alloy hairspring.
g) The security of a watch is only as good as the clasp that keeps it on the wrist. No worries losing this baby. The watch is equipped with a folding Oysterlock Safety Clasp ensuring that one will not find a wrist empty of watch.
h) If the Rolex fits wear it and to increase this likelihood, a Rolex timepiece is equipped with a patented extension system known as the Easylink 5 mm comfort extension link. So don't despair if the bracelet is a touch to snug.
i)And ladies - the watch is a perfect beauty. A rainbow of 36 baguette-cut sapphires ring the bezel in perfectly matched shades of color. Available in 18k yellow or white gold, the 40 mm case is flanked by diamond set lugs. The crown guards are embedded with diamonds as well creating the look of pure luxury.
The black lacquer dial beams with yellow or white gold crystal counters where 8 diamonds in gold settings mark the hours between the 18 ct gold 15,30,45 and 60 numerals.
j) The final desirable appeal of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona is the fact it will match every last piece of clothing in one wardrobe.
