The Rolex Daytona with a Meteorite Dial

A step higher than earthly possessions.

Rolex presents three exclusive versions of its Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona. All three feature a dial that is, quite literally, out of this world. The watch faces are made from metallic meteorite from an asteroid that landed on our planet millions of years ago. On its space voyage, this asteroid (composed primarily of nickel and iron, cooled by a few degrees Celsius every million years, creating a unique and distinctive crystallisation within the material.

When this material is cut into thin sections, its beauty is revealed. These fascinating formations are known as Widmanstätten patterns. Since these are not manufactured, the patterns are quite unique.

These meteorite dials are available in three versions. The first is presented in an 18 ct white gold case, fitted with a monobloc Cerachrom bezel in black ceramic with a tachymeter scale and fitted with an Oysterflex bracelet. The second version is done in an 18 ct yellow gold case, a metal bezel on an Oyster bracelet. The third iteration comes in  an 18 ct Everose gold case, a metal bezel with a tachymeter scale, as well as an Oyster bracelet.

These new versions of the Cosmograph Daytona are equipped with the Calibre 4130, a self-winding mechanical chronograph movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex.
