Baselworld 2017: Rolex reveals its popular Cosmograph Daytona watches in gold

At the ongoing Baselworld 2017, Rolex has introduced three new versions of its Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona line. It was just last year that the watchmaker refreshed their popular Cosmograph Daytona line of watches by launching the ceramic bezel design. And now Rolex has released the Cosmograph Daytona with ceramic bezel in 18-carat yellow, white and Everose gold. Joining the ranks of the Yacht-Master, the new models are fitted with the innovative Oysterflex bracelet in elastomer reinforced with a metal blade, and are equipped with a monobloc Cerachrom bezel, patented by Rolex, in black ceramic.

On the inside, the watch remains the same and is equipped with calibre 4130, a self-winding mechanical chronograph movement. The movement is accurate to +2/-2 seconds per day and has a 72-hour power reserve. The crystal face of the timepiece is virtually scratchproof sapphire and the 40mm-wide oyster case which is crafted from a solid block of 18-ct gold is waterproof to a depth of 100 meters (330 feet). The pricing has not been announced by Rolex as of yet.
