Rolex Rainbow: The Colorful Daytona

The Rainbow Daytona is Rolex's most extravagant chronograph. It's characterized by precious stones in the colors of the rainbow on the bezel. Thanks to its stopwatch function, it's not just a piece of jewelry, it's a practical accessory, too.

Highlights

  • Colorful jewels on the bezel, dial, and case
  • Bezel with gems encompassing the spectrum of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple
  • Precious materials such as white or yellow gold
  • High-quality chronometer: in-house caliber 4130
  • Stopwatch function

Rolex Rainbow: The Colors of the Rainbow

You can recognize a Rolex Daytona Rainbow immediately thanks to the precious stones in the colors of the rainbow adorning its bezel. Thirty-six baguette-cut sapphires sparkle bright red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. Some models feature up to 11 gems as index markers, but models with eight diamonds on the dial are more common. Gems are also found on the lugs and crown protector. Like every Daytona, the Rolex Rainbow is also a functional chronograph. The in-house caliber 4130, introduced by Rolex in 2001, times periods up to 12 hours. It vibrates at 28,800 alternations per hour (A/h), allowing you to time to 1/8th of a second.

Buying Advice for the Rolex Rainbow

If you're looking for a showy chronograph with brand recognition, then the Daytona Rainbow could be the right choice for you. The graduated rainbow sapphires on the bezel immediately catch the eye. Though there is no room left for a tachymetric scale on the bezel, the watch still functions as a chronograph. The watch is powered by the caliber 4130, which allows you to time up to 12 hours precisely. The Rainbow Daytona is a very rare model, making it highly sought after by collectors and fans. The price ranges anywhere from 12,000 euros for a pre-owned stainless steel model to 170,000 euros for a new model made of 18-karat white or yellow gold. You can buy other pre-owned Rolex chronographs for less than 10,000 euros.

Buying Tips

  • Very rare Rolex chronograph
  • Price ranges from 12,000 to 170,000 euros
  • Can be identified by graduated rainbow sapphires

Rolex Daytona: The World-Renowned Chronograph

The Daytona has been connected to racing from the start. Rolex presented the timepiece in 1963, naming it after the eponymous race track in Daytona Beach, Florida. The chronograph was introduced at a time when racing chronographs dominated the industry. Today, Rolex is still best known for three-hand watches; some of their most popular collector's watches are the Submariner and GMT-Master. This could be one reason why the Daytona didn't sell well at first. Consequently, Rolex produced only a smaller number. Vintage Daytonas from the 1960s are thus especially rare and sought after.
The "Paul Newman" is one of the most beloved Rolex chronographs, named after the actor and racer Paul Newman. Newman wore the watch while racing, which contributed to its fame. Unlike the normal Daytonas, the Paul Newman models have a contrasting dial edge. The three subdials feature Arabic numerals in an Art Deco style with small squares at the end of the line indices. Paul Newman Daytonas with reference number 6239 sell for over 100,000 euros at auctions.

Rolex Rainbow's Design

The 40-mm Rainbow Daytona case is made of either stainless steel or 18-karat white or yellow gold. Bicolor stainless steel and yellow gold models are also available, though the most impressive look is the pure yellow gold model with a matte-black dial and yellow diamond indices. Golden Arabic numerals (15, 30, 45) are at the three, six, and nine o'clock positions, and the five-pointed Rolex crown is at 12 o'clock. The golden, camouflage-patterned subdials at three, six, and nine o'clock function as the small seconds, 30-minute counter, and 12-hour counter, respectively. The three small hands are red like the main stopwatch hand, while the other central hands for the minute and hour are golden.
Precious gems such as diamonds and sapphires make the Rainbow even more valuable. Most noticeable are the 36 baguette-cut sapphires on the bezel, which span the entire color spectrum of the rainbow, from red to purple. White, brilliant-cut diamonds cover the lugs and crown protector. A three-piece link Oyster bracelet made of 18-karat yellow gold keeps the watch securely on your wrist.

The Most Modern Technology

The Rolex Rainbow has been powered by the in-house caliber 4130 since 2001. The balance wheel with a blue Parachrom hairspring vibrates at 28,800 A/h. It has been made of a zirconium-niobium alloy since 2005, thus making it unaffected by magnetic fields. The watch is regulated via Microstella nuts on the balance rim. This is a characteristic of every in-house Rolex caliber. Normally, a watch requires a regulator, which lengthens or shortens the balance spring, thereby influencing the movement's precision. The power reserve is 72 hours, but if the chronograph function is turned on, then the watch is powered for only 66 hours. The watch is also waterproof to 100 m (10 bar) thanks to a screw-down case back, push-pieces, and crown.
