New Platinum Rolex Daytona & Day-Date with Baguette Hour Markers & Ice Blue Dials


Today, we present two exceptionally rare Platinum Rolexes adorned with an ice-blue dial and baguette diamond hour markers. These timepieces represent the pinnacle of Rolex's craftsmanship and are a true testament to their exclusivity. We are thrilled to present them today, as they are virtually impossible to acquire through an Authorized Dealer.

1. Rolex Daytona Platinum - Baguette Dial (Ref# 126506) - $125,000

Rolex Daytona in solid platinum with baguette hour markers 126506

First in line is the Rolex Daytona, reference number 126506. This watch comes in at a 40-millimeter case size and is crafted entirely in platinum, featuring a stunning icy blue dial that makes you want to jump into a pool. The brown bezel and brown outlined sub-dials add a touch of sophistication. However, what truly sets this Daytona apart are the diamond baguette hour markers that make the watch that much more special. From the color of the dial to the brown bezel and, of course, the baguette hour markers, this watch really stands out from all the other Rolex Daytonas.

Exhibition Caseback

The Exhibition Caseback on the Platinum Rolex Daytona - a very rare feature.

Another really cool thing about this Daytona is that it has an exhibition case back which is very rare. Having this feature makes the watch a perfect collector's piece and a great watch for someone who really, really loves Rolex. We have this watch available for $125,000.

Ice Blue Dial

The ice blue dial color has been very popular throughout a lot of watch brands. But Rolex has been one of the first to really implement it into a lot of the different models. And this style color just sticks out from the rest. It's very different and just gives you like a refreshing feel. It gives off those summer vibes that make you want to sit by a pool and let your Rolex shine in the sun.

2. Rolex Day-Date 40 Platinum - Fluted Bezel, Baguette Dial (Ref# 228236) - $89,800

Next up, we have the Rolex Day-Date reference number 228236. This, again, is made in full platinum and has that gorgeous icy blue dial. This piece also features the baguette hour markers, and what I love about this example is that it has a fluted bezel, which gives it all the more shine. Fluted bezels tend to shine and catch the light much more than a smooth or ceramic bezel, giving this piece some flash.

Looking at the face of this watch, this one feels even more elevated to that summer feel because on top of the ice blue dial, fluted bezel, and baguette hour markers, it features a blue seconds hand, which is an incredible detail that they added. I'd call this watch the perfect summer piece if you spend some time in the sun by some water. We have this watch listed for $89,800.

In conclusion: How do I get a platinum Rolex? 

The only pieces that are harder to get from an A.D. than this are an off-catalog piece or a rainbow Daytona. Watches like this are at the top of Rolex collecting because they are so desired by so many. If you want to get one at retail, start by buying a smaller piece from the A.D., like a Datejust or a Submariner, and work your way up. If you're trying to buy a higher-end piece like this at the A.D., establishing that level of relationship with Rolex will take you years. You'll have to spend a lot of money and wait a lot of years; by that time, you might not even want the watch anymore; the gray market exists for a reason!

So, if you're interested in any of these watches, call or contact us through social media @WatchesOff5th and let me know which Ice Blue Beauty you like the most! Until next time, Bye!
