Why would "mass produced" make it more "sort after"?

If you want the Daytona with a ZENITH movement and running seconds at 9 O' Clock, yes its fine.
If you want a Daytona with latest Rolex "in-house" movement - go for that.

Its personal preference - but dial is not MK IV

Does anyone have a list of the dial / hand combinations that were available for the Daytona? I keep seeing models with red hands for example but not in any official Rolex literature?

So Iím interested in opinions to an embarrassingly lucky problem.

I currently have a 116500LN white face ceramic bezel Daytona. I purchased it from a grey (I know, loser move but I was in love with it and just had to make her mine) a couple of years back. Watch is in fine shape, full papers and box. Some typical scratches from wear and tear. The problem comes in when today I get a call from my local AD who finally is back open, and tells me the he has a brand new white face ceramic Daytona for me as I had put my name on his list years and years ago. So I buy it, at list, and now have two of the same watches. My initial plan was to sell back to a grey dealer the current grey purchased watch to recoup the over sticker cash I paid a few years back; lower my basis if you will.
But then I started thinking (always dangerous). Why not continue to wear the grey purchased one and also keep the brand new one from my AD but stick the new AD purchased watch in the vault for 10 or 20 years and have an unused, never been worn, pristine watch 20 years from now. Iím a little torn between just recouping the money now that I spent initially, or going with plan B, and saving the new one in the never worn condition and hope that 20 years from now itĎs a true collectors item. As an FYI, I currently have this same situation with a 2006, 116520 Z series Daytona. It is still in the Ďcoffiní box, full stickers and all, never ever been worn. List price in 2006 was $6,000. Current value (based on internet searching) is $26,600. So itís increased $20,000 in 14 years. So, do I sell the grey back and recoup the over payment now, or keep the grey and the one I wear and stash the brand new one in the vault for 20 years. Iím interested in opinions. Thank you

Pick it up and stick it in the safe - itís worked before for you (wow!) so why not again - thatís indeed a lucky problem to have and one a lot us would love to have as well. :)

Or sell the grey one and use the new.

Yep buy it and put it away , I used to always take any new Daytona I was offered and sell my current version so I always had a watch under warranty and no servicing etc,

But now with zero returns from the bank just stash the watches after all you can always sell them if you need money

This is the 2006. Untouched. I think I will take the advice and put the new one away just like this and see what happens in the future.

I am looking to buy a Daytona I saw. It’s a pre-owned model - 2006. It has a white dial with gold and stainless steel.

I want to buy a rubber strap for it, with the Buckle. Where can I buy one from? What is the consensus of how it will look?

Thanks

Iíve long been a fan of using personal straps on certain of my watches. But, I do find myself sometimes swapping them off and on like some kind of Apple Watch! (like imagine if we all suddenly had to stay locked in doors with nothing to do......).

As for where to get one, there are many many on-line places of varying degrees of flexibility, price and quality. Personally, after trying a few others and looking around, I finally found Dangerous9 and purchased numerous straps from them in many different combinations of design for a few different model watches. Here is the link

https://dangerous9straps.com/shop/

Every time the new strap arrives, Iím blown away. You can pick from so many different leathers, colors,finishes.... it does take a while between order and receipt because everything is hand made and the components each hand purchased. But when you finally get the new strap, excitedly swapping it into the body of your watch and then finally wearing it, it just feels perfect!! I donít feel this way about every diff model of Rolex. Some models I prefer to wear as originally designed on the steel or gold bracelet. As it so happens, Iím currently wearing a white face Daytona 116500LN on a custom made strap of alligator on the outside and teju Lizard on the inside. It makes it a very different watch to wear. Funny, I prefer my black dial 116500LN only with the the original metal bracelet. All a question of personal taste I guess.

The pushers internal actuation are the weak link for this depth rating and must not be pushed while submerged. To ensure this, screw locks are fitted to each pusher.

The pusher is an assembly that contains it's own internal "O" rings and is screwed into the case with a gasket seal against the case. When the pusher is depressed, it deforms the "O" rings slightly and may allow water to enter the movement through the actuator rod hole. They also may be inadvertantly depressed so the usual mode should be with the pushers screwed down and locked unless in use.

Attachment 23225
Rolexes have always been viewed as the intersection of functionality, survivability, and luxury. That's why I've found it so important to understand the water resistance of watches and what they mean. (waterproof isn't even a term that companies can use anymore). You don't really know how water resistant a watch is based off the depth listed, so it's best to do additional research. I used this article to determine how careful I had to be with my YachtMaster : https://www.bobswatches.com/rolex-bl...aterproof.html

"Perhaps more than anything else, the unassailable reputation of Rolex watches rests on their ability to withstand the extremes. The brandís products have truly been to the highest, lowest, hottest, and coldest places on Earth, handling with ease the most hostile environments the planet can offer."
