What do you do when you desire a Rainbow Rolex Daytona but it’s virtually impossible to get your hands on one? You create an aftermarket custom Rolex Rainbow using a plain Everose Daytona, that’s what!
Well, maybe not you specifically, let’s leave the aftermarket customizations to a professional jeweler, like Diamonds By Raymond Lee in Boca Raton.
With all the hype around the Everose Rainbow Rolex Daytona, and the extreme difficulty of obtaining one, it was only a matter of time before a client would come in to ask us to create an aftermarket Rainbow Rolex…and this is exactly what happened this past month.
After all, we are known for providing the best aftermarket Rolex customizations in South Florida…
Our standards are Rolex-level – Let this aftermarket Rainbow Rolex creation speak to that.
Custom Rainbow Rolex Project
So, we took our client’s Rainbow Rolex project on, of course. Because our master jeweler and watchmaker has the skills, and we have the highest quality diamonds and gemstones, to make a custom Rainbow Rolex look identical to a factory made Rolex Rainbow Daytona…
We finished the job to perfection, and today, we are featuring our client’s new custom-made Rainbow Rolex Daytona for you all to see…
But, before we get into the specifics of this aftermarket Everose Rainbow Rolex Daytona, let’s talk about the real Rainbow Rolex, reference 116595RBOW, and why it is insanely popular and so very highly coveted.
The Rainbow Daytona was first released back in 2012. It was available in white and yellow gold, and was extremely limited in quantity…
It featured next-level craftsmanship to create a “rainbow” using diamonds and precious sapphire gemstones…
6 years later, Rolex introduced the newest Rainbow Daytona, in Everose – reference 116595RBOW.
Ever since the Rainbow Rolex Daytona came into existence, it has been one of the most talked about and highly sought after models in the entire Rolex catalog. Not to mention, one of the most valuable.
Rainbow Rolex Popularity
Although the Rainbow Rolex is not for everyone, and you will come across many negative comments due to its in-your-face confidence, it’s undeniably one of the most popular Rolex models of the 21st century.
For watch collectors with a deep affection for “blinged-out”, statement-making timepieces, the Rainbow Rolex is a miracle piece worthy of marveling.
And it’s not just adept watch collectors who appreciate the exquisiteness of the Rainbow Rolex, Hollywood A-listers and media tycoons alike also revere the colorful gem-filled Daytona.
The popularity of the Rainbow Rolex can be demonstrated perfectly in two ways – the Rainbow Rolex Waiting list and Resale value.
Even if you can afford a Rainbow Rolex Daytona, the biggest issue you face is finding one for sale. The waiting lists are implausibly long.
Rainbow Rolex Everose Waiting List
First, one of the main reasons the waiting list is so long that it is nearly impossible to get a Rainbow Rolex (brand new or even pre-owned) is because of the limited production. We are talking very limited numbers.
A Rainbow Rolex is not only unobtainable, they are also hard to spot in person. Most people will only see one by looking at pictures of a Rainbow Rolex online. So, the elusiveness makes the Rainbow Rolex even more impressive.
But it’s not only the limited production that makes the Rainbow Rolex waiting list impossibly long. At face value, they are a clear demonstration of Rolex’s masterful craftsmanship. A Rainbow Rolex is emphatically striking and upmarket. Moreover, it is so “Rolex”.
All of this combined makes the Rainbow Rolex Daytona so coveted, and dare we say, worshiped.
If you have any doubt about this, just look at the growth of the retail price versus resale value.
Rainbow Rolex Daytona Everose Retail Price
The new Rainbow Rolex has a retail price of $96,900, and it increases with additional options such as a diamond-set dial or a diamond set bracelet.
However, again, it’s pretty much impossible to get new, which is why the secondhand market’s price is way, way higher.
Rainbow Rolex Value
Pre-Owned Rainbow Rolex Daytona’s are selling anywhere from $250,000 to $400,000+, depending on which version you are looking at.
The value of any particular Rainbow Rolex has, on average, tripled!
This has made the Rainbow Rolex Daytona one of the best investments in the watch game, for any lucky person who was able to purchase one at retail price. This kind of growth is extremely rare, in any type investment portfolio, let alone luxury watches.
To sum it up – If you want to get your hands on one of these magically stunning watches, you can put your name down at an authorized Rolex retailer, but you will be waiting years. If not, forever. Because of this, your best bet is to look to the second hand market. That is, if you are willing to pay an exorbitant price…OR…you can have an expert jeweler craft you an aftermarket Rainbow Rolex. We think the latter is the best option, as did our client.
Custom Rainbow Rolex Daytona Everose: Aftermarket Diamonds and Saphhires
Now that we’ve run through some basic information on the Rainbow Rolex, it should be clear why someone would want to create a custom one.
So, without further ado, let’s explore the main feature of this post, the rose gold aftermarket Rainbow Rolex Daytona, which was handmade onsite at Diamond By Raymond Lee in Boca Raton.
Rolex Daytona 116528
Our client wanted a Rainbow Rolex, so that’s what we gave him.
To start, we needed to choose the watch. The rose gold Daytona reference 116528 was a no-brainer. It’s the reference that would allow us to create a Rainbow Rolex indistinguishable from one made by Rolex themselves.
The watch itself is made from Rolex’s Everose 18K rose gold. It has a 40mm case with the classic Daytona tachymeter bezel, an Oyster bracelet, and a champagne dial with black subdials.
As for the movement, the Rolex Daytona 116528 is powered by Rolex’s extremely reliable 4130 calibre.
All in all, it was the perfect watch to create a custom Rainbow Rolex.
We removed the Rolex 116528’s original bezel and dial, and customized a different dial and bezel. This way the original pieces can be put back on at anytime, which is good for resale value. Additionally, the rainbow bezel and dial have their own intrinsic value.
Aftermarket Rainbow Rolex
Here are the details of the custom aftermarket Rainbow Rolex Daytona we created.
Rolex 116528 Diamond Lugs & Crown Guards
We added round brilliant diamonds to the lugs and crown guards of the case. Just like a Rolex factory set Rainbow Rolex Daytona has.
We chose diamonds that fit flawlessly within the lugs and crown guards as it is essential for producing that flush look. Every single detail counts.
The white diamonds on the rose gold case looks outstanding, and is the perfect start for the bejeweled timepiece.
Aftermarket Rainbow Sapphire Bezel
The bezel we made consists of 36 baguette-cut sapphires. The sapphires are set in a range of graduated colors that ultimately form a “Rainbow”.
There are orange, yellow, green, blue, purple and pink sapphires. The intensity and shade of each sapphire is carefully chosen to create a seamless rainbow. It’s done in such an impeccable manner that it would be hard to distinguish our aftermarket bezel from Rolex’s factory-set rainbow bezel.
Moreover, not only do the colors transition perfectly, from one sapphire to the next, they also are of the highest grade.
When it comes to sapphires, clarity is essential. And these are all Rolex-standard sapphires.
We don’t skimp on any element of our aftermarket Rolex creations.
Custom Rolex Rainbow Diamonds & Sapphire Dial
The dial is equally as magnificent and enchanting.
Our client chose to do the full diamond covered dial. So, we took a Rolex Daytona dial and set it with pave diamonds. Every nook and cranny features small round brilliant diamonds.
In the end, we are left with an exemplary extravagant diamond dial, ready for its sapphire indices.
Rainbow Hour Markers
The indices take form in their original shape. But instead of being solid precious metal or filled with lume, we set perfectly sized sapphires at the center.
The sapphires were chosen just as deliberately as the bezel, forming a rainbow around the perimeter that matches the bezel with immaculate precision.
Again, every element and component of the watch undergoes stringent and rigorous detailing. We can only accept perfection.
Putting it all together – Our Custom Rainbow Rolex End Result
Once all the pieces were customized and finished, we safely removed the original dial and bezel and replaced it with the Rainbow Bezel and Dial.
We are left with a Rainbow Rolex Daytona Everose Aftermarket watch that is candidly identical to a factory made Rolex Rainbow Daytona.
We are now ready to present the custom Rainbow Rolex to our client.
100% Customer Satisfaction
Being that the custom Rolex Rainbow Daytona in Everose was as sound as a bell, our client was ecstatic with the end result.
We can honestly say this is the best aftermarket Rainbow Rolex we’ve ever seen.
So, huge thanks and major respect to our master watchmaker.
In the end, our client was able to expeditiously purchase a lavish timepiece that is effectively impossible to get, and is ridiculously expensive, at a low cost.
Rainbow Rolex Daytona Everose ON THE WRIST
One the wrist, the Rainbow Rolex is utterly magical and captivating. It combines the sporty Rolex Daytona demeanor with a vibrantly modern and fun flare.
What’s more, it becomes immediately apparent that Everose gold is the perfect precious metal to bring out the colors of the bezel. The pink hue magnifies the jewels exceptionally well.
It’s the type of watch that you can become absolutely obsessed with.
And this goes for both men and women…It will look just as good on a woman as it does a man.
Moreover, it is supremely versatile.
It can be worn with jeans and a tee on a casual day out, at the beach while sipping on your favorite cocktail (remember it’s waterproof down to 330ft!), or at a fancy party dressed to the nine.
It’s a fantastic watch that will fulfill whatever fantasy you can imagine…Speaking of which, we can’t wait to see what our client has in store for it.
Rainbow Rolex X Sapphire Jewelry
When pairing a Rainbow Rolex with other jewelry, you need to think in terms of precious gemstones and diamonds.
This sapphire and diamond flower inspired ring is the perfect example.
It features a mammoth blue sapphire centerpiece with a cluster of white round brilliant diamonds surrounding it.
Just like the Rainbow Rolex’s sapphires and diamonds, the ring’s blue sapphire and white diamonds are GIA certified and of the highest grade.
Let this be a gorgeous example of how to accessorize a Rainbow Rolex Daytona.
