Reinforcing its commitment to creative dial designs, Rolex places its excellence in métiers d’arts at the forefront of this sensational 40mm Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona. The stunning dial features a leopard motif created with 243 diamonds and black lacquer. The subdials of the chronograph are color-coordinated in black and champagne.
For a unique twist on telling time, the numerals do not feature the traditional hours, but rather minutes — 15, 30 and 45 — and eight gold-set diamond markers form the other indices. The bezel is meticulously set with 36 trapeze-cut diamonds weighing 4.58 carats.
The Perpetual Calibre 4130 self-winding chronograph movement equipped with a paramagnetic blue Parachrom hairspring and bidirectional winding rotor powers the watch. It is a Superlative Chronometer certified by COSC and Rolex, and the proprietary Oyster case is water resistant to 100 meters.
