How similar is the “Special Commemorative Edition” Daytona to the antique Daytona “Paul Newman”? A little bit.

“Special Commemorative Edition” Daytona 126529, in appearance, absorbs some characteristics of the antique Daytona “Paul Newman.” The “Paul Newman” dial refers to the Rolex antique Daytona 6239, 6241, 6263, and other models, a dial design that appeared from 1963 to 1987. The black and white contrasting color matching dial is used, named after the actor Paul Newman wears it.

From Rolex’s new “Special Commemorative Edition” Daytona, it can be seen that the black and white panda color of the dial is matched, and the small white chronograph dial uses the iconic “small square” scale of “Paul Newman.” Above the small seconds dial at 6 o’clock is red DAYTONA English, with a black bezel; the appearance has the charm of the antique Daytona 6241 “Paul Newman.” On the tachymeter scale on the ceramic ring, the number 100 is painted red to highlight the 100th anniversary.

In addition to the details mentioned above, in terms of the overall design, the “special commemorative edition” Daytona 126529 is consistent with the new generation of Daytona that has been updated this year. For example, there is a metal edging on the outer edge of the ceramic ring, and the edging material is the same as that of the case, which is 18K platinum edging. The dial time scale is a new slender time scale—none of these changes.

“Special Commemorative Edition” Daytona, once again, the movement is through the bottom, and the function of the campaign has slightly changed.

At the beginning of this year, Rolex launched the Daytona 126506 with a platinum shell and ice blue face, the first time that Daytona has seen through the bottom. And now, following closely behind, this “special commemorative edition” Daytona 126529 has become the second through-the-bottom Daytona. “Special Commemorative Edition” Daytona 126529, using Rolex 4132 automatic chronograph movement. 4132 is a model that has not appeared before. Previously, the Rolex chronograph movement has always been 4130, and this year’s upgraded version is 4131. What is the situation with 4132 on this watch?

The “Special Commemorative Edition” Daytona 126529 has become the second through-the-bottom Daytona.

The 4132 movement of the “Special Commemorative Edition” Daytona is based on the 4131 movement with a slight change. The 12-hour clock at 9 o’clock on the dial of the 4130/4131 movement was changed to a 24-hour clock. To echo the 24-hour race of Le Mans. Because of this small change, a new number of 4132 was used. In other aspects of the movement, the 4132 campaign is the same as the 4131 currently used by the new Daytona. These have not changed, like the blue niobium hairspring, Chronergy escapement upgraded ball bearing automatic rotor (increased number of hops), and 72-hour power reserve.

Is it cool for a while, or is it always remarkable?

For other famous watches, it is widespread to see through the bottom. But for Rolex, it is a scarce thing. Almost all Rolex is not transparent from ancient times to the present except for very few models, such as the Prince. But there are new changes this year, such as the Perpetual 1908, Platinum Ice Landi, and this “special commemorative edition” Daytona, all of which are thoroughly understood. Through the bottom, it is now a primary “magic weapon” of Rolex. Since Rolex attaches great importance to the continuation of its history, it is difficult for the watch’s appearance design to undergo “shattering” changes, and the dial paint can only be changed yearly. And the trick of showing through the bottom is very eye-catching. It can be seen that once Rolex has made a thorough opening with the first one, there will be a second one. In the future, there may be more and more Rolex watches replica. But everyone knows that the bottom is a double-edged sword for Rolex. If there is little transparency, everyone pays attention; if there is a lot of clarity, everyone is not surprised.
