c.2005 Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Meteorite Dial - White gold - Ref.116519 ***SOLD***
c.2005 Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Ref. 116519 (now discontinued) with the rare Meteorite dial – in solid 18k White Gold.
The model reference 116519 actually refers to a white gold watch on a leather strap and not bracelet as we have pictured here.
We are told that the original purchaser bought the watch as standard on a black Alligator strap and then later purchased a blue Alligator strap from Rolex together with a new white gold bracelet. This is all included in our package at no additional cost to you, although these will have come at a substantial added cost. As the watch has been worn predominantly on the bracelet the two straps are almost like new. All of the other references of this watch we have seen for sale are on a leather strap but none with both, let alone two leather straps.
The intimately reflective Meteorite dial adds a deep glistening texture to the watch, lending it a new look every time the wrist turns. Applied white gold Roman numeral hour markers interspersed by square batons at 3, 6, and 9. Red, central chronograph hand with matching corresponding red sub dial hands. Chronograph pushers at 2 and 4 straddling a chunky white gold crown at 3.
The red hands and the rare natural Meteorite dial is what really sets this watch apart from other Daytona's. Every time you look you see a different sparkle in the dial which is mesmerising!
Subtly brushed outer bracelet links with a sleek, smooth polish on the central band. The watch has been mainly worn as can be seen, on the gold bracelet, hence there are some marks and a couple of extremely minor rub marks that can easily be polished out and should you wish, we can have our watch maker do this.
The solid bracelet clasp fastens in a beautiful sturdy manner, and together with the heavier bracelet, makes for a larger piece which doesn’t overstate.
The inner and outer box comes with operating instructions, swing tag and spare links for the bracelet as well as the two leather straps.
