This Rose Gold Rolex Daytona Was Made For An F1 Racing Legend

Brazilian Formula 1 driver Rubens Barrichello is a legend in the world of racing, as he competed in the prestigious race from 1993 to 2011, earning 11 Grand Prix wins and 68 podium finishes. Not to mention, he holds the world record for most F1 race starts with a whopping 322. The Rolex Daytona 4130 ‘La Barrichello’ by Artisans de Genève — made in collaboration with the legendary racer himself — is a stunning timepiece for those in the fast lane.

It has an openwork dial to showcase the modified Rolex 4130 movement and rose gold rotor that matches the watch’s colorway. Exercising exemplary precision, each part of the Rolex was disassembled, skeletonized, and beveled by hand. The rotor is cast in 21K gold and made to look like a race car wheel rim before being coated in ADLC. It has a 72-hour power reserve, 4Hz frequency, and a water-resistance of 100 meters. Only a limited number of these astounding 40mm Rolex Daytonas will be produced and you can reserve one of your own with a deposit. The Rolex Daytona ‘La Barrichello’ comes with a hefty price tag at $78,000.
