Rolex has recently launched a brand new Daytona with Meteorite dial at Watches and Wonders. However, Rolex has not changed anything technically on its treasured and modern Daytona apart from the dial. The new Daytona watches still sport a 40mm case and gold or black ceramic bezel. Even the durable Calibre 4130 movement powers them.

The new Daytona still offers you two bracelet options – the Oyster bracelet or the Oysterflex rubber bracelet. However, what outshines the new Rolex Daytona versions is the sparkling Meteorite dial. Let’s here explore the extraordinary and coveted new Rolex Daytona Meteorite Dial.

The New 2021 Release: Rolex Meteorite Dials

Meteorite dials are not new in the Daytona lineup; however, Rolex equipped a ceramic bezel Daytona with this dial style the first time. The Reference 116509 was the last Daytona to feature a meteorite dial besides a steel case, bezel and bracelet.

The watch is still available in the retail market. However, the fact is that the Daytona 116509 did not have much popularity due to its Roman dial. Keeping this in mind, the new Rolex Daytona Meteorite Dials will undoubtedly capture collectors’ attention.

Rolex offers the Daytona Meteorite Dials in yellow, white or the brand’s signature Everose gold. This boosts the entire appeal, highlights the texture and sheen of the Meteorite dial better than the Reference 116509.

Why the Name ‘Meteorite Dial’?

Well, the ‘Meteorite Dial’ is not any standard, cool name. The leading Swiss watchmaker makes use of meteorites to design and craft this unique and ingenious dial design. Now, what do you mean by ‘Meteorite’?

A meteorite is found at the centre of the billions of years old asteroid. This rock floats in space and falls on the Earth. Rolex explains that the meteorite’s centre gradually gets transformed and produces unique metallic patterns. However, these patterns result from the slower cooling of molten asteroid cores.

Rolex utilizes these space rocks to create a unique dial style, and each dial features a distinctive geometric pattern. Interestingly, meteorites are not as rare as you may think them to be. You can found them readily and are not too pricey or precious to acquire. But meteorites are undeniably unique, and most watchmakers use the component for their most popular, costliest, and collectable models.

A Close Look at the New Rolex Daytona

When you look at the all-new Daytona, the Meteorite dial is likely to the first feature to capture your eye. However, the dial comes with several little details worthy to note.

  • It flaunts the pointed gold-outlined baton hour markers, filled with the brand’s patented Chromalight lume that glows blue in low light conditions.
  • Moreover, the baton markers at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock are bulkier and smaller, making space for the sub-dials.
  • And the 12-hour marker side has the Rolex crown emblem instead of the index.

The three new Daytona watches flaunt black sub-dials in the Meteorite dial. However, the dial looks more handsome when paired with the Cerachrom ceramic bezel of the white gold Reference 116519LN. But it does complement the black Tachymeter bezel on the Everose and yellow gold models, too.

Finally, you cannot fail to notice the signature ‘Daytona’ name splashed out in red above the sub-dial at the 6 o’clock side. Overall, the combination of Meteorite dial, gold and ceramic bezel makes the watch looks spectacular. The new Rolex Meteorite Dial Daytona will indeed be a huge success and coveted.
