Chic and versatile, this watch has the hallmark traits of modern-day Rolex Daytonas such as a 40mm case, large chronograph pushers and crown, and an Oyster bracelet but in solid Everose gold. The 116505 also comes with a matching Everose bezel, engraved with a black tachymeter scale.
When it comes to dial colors, black, ivory, rose gold, and chocolate brown were made available. Over the decades, various hour marker styles were also offered – from the traditional trapezoidal markers to Arabic numerals and brilliant-cut diamonds. Sometime in 2020, Rolex updated the diamond indices to the more modern baguette diamond-style hour markers.
