Have you heard about it? Or have you been living under a (space) rock? Rolex has just released a new Daytona that is literally out of this world. Equipped with white gold, yellow gold, and Everose, the new Rolex Meteorite Dial Daytona is cool, modern, and totally covered. We took the time to research everything we could about this new Daytona – from the materials used to the retail price, release date, and more. Plus, we’ve pointed out all the details you shouldn’t miss. Well, let’s take a closer look!┬á
The new Rolex Daytona with the meteorite dial is not yet available. It will be available at retailers soon, probably in the next few weeks. However, since its announcement, there are undoubtedly thousands of people around the world trying to get on the waiting list for this fake watch. As a result, it’s unclear how long they’ll be making the watch and who on the waiting list will get it. It’s also worth noting that at Bob’s, we don’t work with a waiting list. Our website is updated daily with our latest watches – we encourage you to keep a close eye on it. Often we will have a brand replica Rolex watch for sale, maybe even this one. But remember, it’s first-come, first-served!
The Meteorite Dial is more than just a cool name – Rolex actually uses meteorites to create these unique, world-beating designs. Okay, so you’re probably wondering – what’s a meteorite? Well, it’s actually the stuff at the center of asteroids – rocks that flew through space billions of years ago – and landed on Earth. As Rolex explains, “During its journey, the center of the meteorite gradually transformed, creating a very unusual metallic pattern caused by the very slow cooling of the molten asteroid core”. What Rolex has done is to create a dial from these space rocks – each with its own unique and distinctive geometric pattern.
So, are meteorites as rare as fake Rolex claims? Not really. They’re much easier to find than you might think, which means they’re not all that precious or expensive. However, they are very unique and most replica watch companies only use meteorites on their most famous, expensive, and collectible timepieces.
Finally, let’s boil down the details of these unique dials here. While the meteorite may be the first element that catches your eye, there are many other small details on this dial that are worth noting. First, we love the pointed baton hour markers, which are outlined in gold (white, yellow, or stellar) and then filled with Rolex’s high-resolution Chromalight display with its long-lasting blue luminescence. Note that the baton is smaller and fatter at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock to make room for the subdials, and at 12 o’clock, there are no indexes to make room for the Rolex crown logo.
