Rolex Daytona John Mayer Ref. 116508
This watch requires no introduction, but for those who may not be familiar, let’s delve into the marvelous details of the timepiece we’re talking about.
The Rolex Daytona John Mayer, with reference number 116508, is one of the watches that has been nearly impossible to find nowadays, thanks to the man who made it a big hit like his top charting songs, the celebrity-watch collector John Mayer.
This watch showcases a solid 18k yellow-gold case with 40mm diameter and 12mm thickness. It also has a yellow-gold Oyster bracelet to complete its precious and elegant look.
And like other Daytonas, it also has an engraved tachymeter scale on its yellow-gold bezel, a screw-down pusher, and a scratch-proof sapphire crystal that gives you a clear view of its dial while protecting it.
But what makes the watch enthusiasts hot and bothered is the phenomenal green sunburst dial of the watch that can only be found in this particular model.
It has a different shade of green that Rolex ‘Kermit’ and ‘Hulk’ don’t have.
This Rolex “John Mayer” Daytona is powered by an in-house automatic caliber 4130, with a 72-hour approximate power reserve. Moreover, it has a water resistance feature of up to 100 meters.
It doesn’t have a date window, but it’s nothing compared to its functions, such as the chronograph function that is accurate to within 1/8 of a second, 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock, and 12-hour counter at 9 o’clock.
Despite these remarkable features, this watch has been discontinued (which makes it more alluring for collectors), meaning you can’t purchase a brand-new model of this timepiece from any official Rolex distributor.
However, if you are lucky, you can still find a model in the secondary market for an eye-popping price of more or less $100,000, far from its original retail price of $37,000 when it was released in 2016.
