There are numerous varieties of the Rainbow Daytona available on the market. First, the yellow gold (116598RBOW) and white gold (116599RBOW) variations debuted in 2012. Likewise, the current production edition, the rose gold variant (116595RBOW), was unveiled just in 2018.

On the other hand, the everose Rainbow Daytona is studded with 47 sapphires, 36 baguette-cut sapphires along the bezel, and 11 more sapphires on the indexes. The bezel of the rainbow Daytonas in white gold and yellow gold similarly features 36 baguette-cut sapphires. However, the hour markings are 8 brilliant-cut diamonds instead. 

For several watch collectors, the rainbow Daytona is the ultimate Rolex. It is manufactured in very limited numbers, and the resale market is relatively strong. It is, therefore, not unusual to see the Rolex Daytona on the wrists of celebrities, given the striking appeal of its current variants and how it has evolved into a statement item. 

Let’s now take a look at some of the well-known individuals from a range of fields who have a soft spot for the Rolex Daytona watches:

  • Kevin Hart

Actor Kevin Hart has a well-known collection of fine watches, including Audemars Piguet, Patek Philippe, and Rolex pieces. As a guest, Hart was seen sporting the rare rose golden Rolex Daytona Rainbow while attending the Ellen Show. 



Additionally, along with the Rainbow Daytona, he has been pictured wearing a variety of Daytona models, such as the platinum Daytona, the steel Daytona featuring a panda dial, and both steel and gold classic Ref. 6263 Daytonas. 

  • Mark Wahlberg

Mark Wahlberg is, in fact, one of the most well-known movie actors worldwide. Many probably already know he has a sizable wristwatch collection, especially if you’ve been following him for an extended period. 

A piece from the 170 Tiffany Blue Nautiluses, a Patek Philippe Sky Moon Tourbillon, and other Rolex watches are among Wahlberg’s watch portfolio. The white golden Rolex Daytona rainbow is also one of his several Daytonas. However, because of its discontinuation, this white gold rainbow Daytona has become a favorite amongst many collectors and enthusiasts.

One way to know Mark Wahlberg is a real watch fan is the fact that he actually has two Rainbow Daytonas, not just one. Wahlberg has been wearing the rose gold version of the Daytona more lately, apart from his white gold rainbow version. Hence, we can conclude that if Rolex introduces another brand-new rainbow Daytona variant today, Wahlberg will undoubtedly purchase it as well.

  • Adam Levine

Lately, Adam Levine has received a lot of press attention—and not always for good reasons. Levine’s outstanding watch selection, however, has also been acknowledged. He has been spotted wearing various Rolex watches over the years, both classic and contemporary. 



However, his preferred Rolex model is definitely the Daytona. Levine’s possession of the most valuable contemporary Daytona in his inventory, the rose gold Rolex Daytona Rainbow, makes perfect sense given this situation.

  • John Mayer

According to many, the top celebrity watch collection belongs to John Mayer. He has a large portfolio of watches from Audemars Piguet, Patek Philippe, and Rolex, both new and old. He has also been sported wearing several “rainbow watches” on his wrist.

Among them is the brand-new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Music Edition in white gold featuring a bezel studded with various colored stones. Moreover, Mayer’s Rolex rainbow Daytona is made of white gold. 

Indeed, gem-studded bezels are Mayer’s favorite!

  • Cristiano Ronaldo

It’s worth noting that Ronaldo’s Daytona seems to have a dial made of black mother of pearl. Besides, the dial on his rainbow Daytona is identical to the one on a yellow-gold Daytona he donned initially in his career. Ronaldo also appears to have switched his rainbow Daytona dial for the mother-of-pearl dial.

  • Post Malone

Unlike fellow musician Adam Levine, Post Malone isn’t immediately associated with collecting watches. Even so, he reportedly has a collection of high-end watches. In addition to various Rolexes, Patek Philippes, and Richard Mille watches, he has been seen with the $1,000,000 Richard Mille RM 052 Tourbillon Skull.

Post Malone also appeared on Jimmy Fallon in 2019 while wearing the incredibly rare Rose Gold Daytona Rainbow 116595RBOW. With this, we can safely conclude that the artist seems to be a devoted watch collector.

  • Zlatan Ibrahimović

The career of Swedish football player Zlatan Ibrahimovic could be coming to an end. During his career, the striker, now 41, has contributed to numerous memorable scenes on the field. If you look closely, Zlatan has also worn some exquisite watches. Several Patek Philippe watches, Rolex Daytonas, as well as the Omega X Swatch Speedmaster MoonSwatch, make up Zlatan’s collection.

In addition, Zlatan has the Rolex Daytona “Eye of the Tiger” (the rose gold Ref. 116595RBOW rainbow Daytona) in his insane collection.
