Watch enthusiast have been anxiously expecting to see what Rolex would bring to the table at Baselworld 2013 on the occasion of Daytona’s 50th anniversary. They probably expected a brand new model, but the luxury watch manufacturer decided to do a little something else. Rolex has unveiled two fresh versions of older models: a GMT-Master II and a Platinum Daytona, both with new color variations.
The Daytona keeps its original 40mm dimension, but brings a new light blue dial and a brown cerachrom bezel. The color combination is classy and quite alluring, but more changes would have been very welcomed as well. Inside the case is a COSC automatic chronograph movement, calibre 4130, with a power reserve of 72 hours.
Also still 40mm in diameter, the new GMT-Master II is powered by a Rolex Calibre 3186. It features a two color cerachrom bezel insert with a day/night configuration. The colors are blue and black, as you can see in the photos below.
