Recently, during the celebration of the ATP 500 tennis tournament in Barcelona, all eyes were on the wrist of Carlos Alcaraz. The young Spanish tennis star had just won the tournament and was wearing a Rolex Cosmograph Daytona ‘Meteorite’ 116518LN in 18k yellow gold. This particular version of the iconic watch boasts a black ceramic bezel, grey meteorite dial with black chronograph sub-dials, and an oysterflex bracelet. What makes this watch truly unique is the fact that it was only introduced in 2021 and is already out of production in all its configurations.

Rolex is known for its exceptional quality and craftsmanship, and the Cosmograph Daytona is one of the most sought-after watches in the world. The ‘Meteorite’ version takes this to another level with its rare and stunning meteorite dial. The dial is made from a piece of the Gibeon meteorite that fell to earth in Namibia over 4 billion years ago. The meteorite has a distinctive Widmanstätten pattern, which is formed when the meteorite cools over an extended period of time. This makes each dial unique and adds to the exclusivity of the watch.

The 18k yellow gold case and bracelet of the Daytona ‘Meteorite’ add to the watch’s luxurious look and feel. The oysterflex bracelet is a unique feature that combines the comfort of a rubber strap with the durability and strength of a metal bracelet. The black ceramic bezel is scratch-resistant and adds a modern touch to the watch’s classic design.

The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona ‘Meteorite’ 116518LN has a retail price of $34,750.00, but its market price is estimated to be around $100,000.00 due to its rarity and exclusivity. It’s no surprise that this watch has become a favorite among collectors and celebrities alike. In fact, other notable figures who have been spotted wearing the Daytona ‘Meteorite’ include Justin Bieber, Drake, and John Mayer.
