Zlatan Ibrahimovic – platinum Rolex Cosmograph Daytona

Football legend Zlatan Ibrahimovic of AC Milan and Sweden national team is wearing one of the hottest models on the watch market: The 40mm platinum Rolex Cosmograph Daytona featuring an ice-blue dial and a cherachrom bezel with a tachymetric scale.

About the Watch

The platinum Rolex Cosmograph Daytona platinum model, a new version of a genuine industry classic, commemorates 50 years of watch manufacturing history. The Rolex Daytona reference 116506 was first introduced in 2013 to honor the model’s 50th anniversary. It created a buzz among collectors when it was first released.

The Rolex Daytona ref. 116506 has an ice blue dial that stands out. It has a sleek, sharp look that has a lot of personality without compromising the sophistication that this legendary series of chronograph timepieces is known for. The usage of an icy blue dial is significant for Rolex lovers or those in the know.

This hue is reserved solely for platinum Rolex variants and is not found on other Rolex timepieces. It’s a subtle reminder to fellow timepiece collectors and fanatics that the watches it adorns are made of solid 950 platinum. The chestnut brown Cerachrom bezel precisely matches the three sub-dials on the face, and the famous red “DAYTONA” emblem is plainly visible just above seconds’ hands at 6 o’clock.

The ice blue background is as tranquil as a secluded glacier lake. The incorporation of 11 diamonds carved in 3 various sizes distributed around the periphery of Rolex’s ice blue dial does not rattle the plumage. A diamond-set dial is offered as an alternative, just as you’d expect from the design Daytona model built from solid platinum.

A solid platinum Oyster bracelet with the model’s Oysterlock secure clasp secures this contemporary gem to the wrist. The unique Rolex Easylink extension system on this model allows the wearer to rapidly modify the bracelet by 5mm for a comfortable and safe fit.

The platinum Daytona’s robust three-link bracelet contributes significant weight to the whole device, making it among the heaviest timepieces ever made. As a result, you get the distinct impression that you’re wearing something with tremendous inherent value and superb workmanship.

The in-house Caliber 4130 beats away, hidden behind a sealed caseback as one would expect from a Rolex watch. This keeps time in the face of practically everything the external environment can hurl at it.

Because it has fewer features than a typical chronograph movement, the self-winding Cal. 4130 mechanical Chrono offers more reliability. The Rolex Caliber has a column wheel as well as a diagonal clutch. It also has the brand’s patented blue parachrom hairspring, which is magnetic field resistance and 10 times better resistant to temperature changes and shocks.

The 50th-anniversary platinum Daytona has become a vital element of Rolex’s iconic racing Chrono narrative. It is undeniably sumptuous and features a distinctive color palette associated with Rolex’s best offerings. With the exception of the several off-catalog variations studded in jewels, the platinum Daytona is the most luxurious rendition of Rolex’s legendary chronograph. If the hefty price tag doesn’t bother you, there isn’t a greater compliment to any genuine luxury timepiece collection.
