There is no secret to anyone that Adam Levine is one of the best dressed singers there is. Although he has a very casual and relaxed style all the time, the Maroon 5 main singer always looks perfect, and this includes not only his clothes but also his accessories. One of the most popular pieces that he is wearing is his watch; the Daytona 6240 Rolex, a collectible timeless watch.
Like any other Rolex watch, the Daytona model is also extremely elegant, a classic some might think, and designed to get the attention in any circumstance. Strangely enough, when Rolex first produced this watch only a number of pieces were made, because they thought that it will not sell well. Indeed, the Daytona did not have much success back in the 60’s, but nowadays the watch is extremely difficult to find and it can only be bought for a small fortune.
The Daytona watch is made from high quality steel that will not change its appearance over the years. A clear proof of this is that even nowadays, more than 50 years after the watch was made, it still looks impeccable and every piece that was produced in that time is mostly intact. The strap of the watch is also made of stainless steel, which makes it appropriate both for casual and elegant outfits; Adam Levine is wearing his Daytona successfully during concerts or on the red carpets with expensive suits.
One of the reasons why there’s so much discussion around Adam’s watch is not because the watch is a Rolex or because it is pricey (and it is quite expensive), but because it is a classic. The original version that was produced in the 60’s evolved, and anyone who knows something about watches can look at this piece and see how the entire collection evolved. The details may go unnoticeable for most of the people, but not for a specialist. Adam does not only show his impeccable taste in choosing clothes and accessories, but he is also making a statement: he loves the classics and he is not afraid to show it.
Regarding the price of the watch, it is difficult to say how much it is actually worth. It was made in a limited edition and not many pieces are still available in good condition, so it depends on how the watch looks now and how well it was preserved.
The annual Baselworld show will always have watch aficionados discussing what manufacturers may have in store for them, and Rolex are undeniably on the tip of everyone’s tongue. Recent years have seen growing speculation about a new Rolex Daytona chronograph model finally getting announced, and now that wait is finally over.
While not initially popular upon its release, the Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona, or simply Daytona, has now reached legendary status among watch enthusiasts and collectors. First released in 1963 as a watch perfect for racing, it became an iconic timepiece used amongst motorsport professionals thanks to its incredible performance and chronograph function.
Re-launches saw it become and updated piece for the modern collector, with the 40mm wristwatch now featuring an automatic movement and sapphire glass back. These models continued to remain elusive however, as the popularity of the Daytona continued over the years.
It has been almost 16 years since the most recent steel Daytona was released, and many have been clamouring for an upgraded model to feature a new ceramic bezel since it was first featured on the Platinum Daytona anniversary edition in 2013.
Now the new Daytona comes with just that, as well as a new model number (116500LN) and is available with either a black or white dial. The calibre remains the same 4130 of the previous iteration, as does the oyster casing and bracelet. While this may not appear like much, fans of Rolex know just how big this announcement is, and these new models will certainly be hard to come by – expect some long waiting lists in any case!
Back to main feature, which is unquestionably the new ceramic cerachrom bezel with a tachymetric scale. This type of bezel isn’t anything new to several watch models, but will be a first for the steel Daytona range and will prove to be massively popular.
For one it is incredibly durable, with the ceramic used being virtually scratch-proof and resistant to UV damage. The digits for the bezel are embedded with a platinum coating to help ensure their longevity too, ensuring that the aesthetics of this new Daytona will remain spotless and damage-free for life.
The black dial models will feature the same silver sub dials around the chronograph dials as previous models, whereas the white dial features black dials instead. Both help to create that beautiful dial-design that has become a hallmark for the Daytona. Other than that, the dials remain almost unchanged from their predecessors, which certainly isn’t an issue given how popular the Daytona has been.
As the oyster case remains, there isn’t much to note about the case. It features the same robustness as the previous models, with the case being constructed from 904L stainless steel. The bracelet is unchanged too, consisting of the oyster design from previous steel Daytona’s, including satined external links and polished central links. An Oysterlock clasp is present for fastening, which also has an easylink extender for adjustments.
As the bezel holds the crystal in place, the model is again water resistant to a depth of 100 metres.
The Daytona still has the 4139 calibre of the previous models. This self-winding movement has been made entirely in-house by Rolex and provides power reserves for up to 72 hours. What has changed in regards to this is how Rolex tests this calibre.
Since 2015 Rolex unveiled a new Superlative Chronometer certification, which happened to be more of an upgrade of the COSC certification rather than just replacing it. These tests are done entirely in-house by Rolex and are done using strict criteria (which happen to be stricter than most others too) to help ensure it performs to the highest possible standards.
This results in the new Daytona being in the order of -2/+2 seconds per day, which is incredible for a chronometer and just goes to show the high level of craftsmanship that has gone into the latest Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona.
These are guaranteed to sell fast, and with a price of £8,250 (€11,300), there’s no telling just how long they will be available for – although no release date has been announce yet!
A lot can be said about celebrities nowadays, however, the news that keeps up with famous people all around the world, often shows a weakness for noticing the smaller things involved in celebrities’ daily lives. Paris Hilton, for example, is a very stylish and current celebrity with the knowledge of constant fashion and clothing appeal.

Her most known attributes are displayed through various lines of perfume that she has distributed throughout the years as well as a very dominate fashion line. Also, Hilton has been known to display many of other fashion designer works as well as modeling them for the world to see. One of the great things about fame is the ability to bring to light the items that are often overlooked or aren’t getting enough attention.

Our cellphones and other gadgets now allow us to carry around a clock at all times, often leaving the watch as a last minute thought. However, watches are still an option that remains in style and a stylish way to keep up with your time.
Of course, we have Paris Hilton with her many famous styles that show it is still possible to show off the intrigued option of the watch. There are also a couple examples that have been known to show up on Paris’s wrist as one of her styling choices.
One of the best options many people are going with is the Diamond Rolex GMT-Master II watch. This 18 karat white gold case set watch with diamonds is priced at a very high appeal.

Kyle Richards is a well known television personality and actress; her career goes way back in 1975 when she appeared in a small television series. However, she is very famous for playing in ER and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Recently, she has been seen wearing one of the most desired timepieces in the world, a Rolex Daytona in Rose Gold, a choice that has attracted many appreciations from fashion critics and fellow celebrities.
The Cosmograph Daytona is unquestionably one of the most recognizable and popular timepieces in history. Initially, the watch was designed as a professional time keeping device for racing drivers, but in time it evolved into one of the most fashionable and luxurious pieces around. This iconic model comes in numerous versions of precious materials such as platinum, yellow gold and rose gold, but Richards couldn’t resist to the beauty and distinction of the famous 18 k Everose gold, a color option that looks irresistible on the classic Daytona dial with its three elegant sub-dials and functional tachymetric scale.
Kyle decided to match her rose gold Rolex Daytona with a short black dress complemented by a wide gold studs belt, a similar gold studs bracelet and lacquered black pumps. Her hairdo was really simple and clean, creatively paired-up with over-sized gold earrings.
The Everose gold version Daytona is so special because this unique 18 k pink gold alloy has been created and patented exclusively by Rolex in its own foundry. The material was introduced in 2005 and is used for all Rolex Oyster models that come in pink gold.
The main reason why the Rolex Daytona Everose gold worn by Kyle Richards is such a stylish and interesting fashion choice is the fact that it comes with a sleek black dial. The surface is clean and plain, enhancing the beauty of the small 3 dials which are pink gold and black with a raised circular pattern which reflects the light exquisitely. The hour markers are also Everose gold and coated with Chromalight for increased night legibility. Around the outside of this uber sophisticated dial there is a prominent 18 k pink gold tachymetric scale that has black embossed numbers. Everything about this model impresses in the most exquisite possible way.
Even though the Rolex Daytona is a considerably large watch, most often recommended for large manly wrists, Richards manages to wear it effortlessly. The large Cosmograph dial looks nice and natural on her wrist due to her inspired choice of accessories and clothing. The black and pink rose gold dial of the Daytona goes very nicely with Kyle’s short black dress that has a rugged studs gold belt around her waist. This and the flowing ample long sleeve manage to integrate the large masculine timepiece seamlessly into the actress’s cool stylish look.
There is no celebrity couple more fashionable and attractive than Victoria & David Beckham. To sum up their careers- David Beckham played Football for Manchester United, Real Madrid, AC Milan, LA Galaxy and PSG. He is currently retired, but makes a lot of money from advertising luxury products. Victoria Beckham was a member of the famous pop band- Spice Girls- and now is a very popular fashion designer. The couple is very stylish and versatile when it comes to their image, but regarding their public appearance one thing always remains the same- they stay true to their passion for Rolex watches.
Victoria & David Beckham have been seen wearing numerous different models created by Rolex, one more sophisticated than the other. David has been for the past decades a real male style icon. He is famous for its stylish outfits, hairstyles and luxury watches. He is a true chameleon when it comes to timepieces, switching from vintage to modern Rolex watches in an instance. The Deepsea Sea Dweller was his first love. With a water resistance of 3900 meters, this model got David’s full attention. He owns two versions of the Deepsea, the first one is the classic one and the second one is a customized version with a Black PVD coating. Also, the arrow shaped tip from the bezel is red color. This special version looks totally different than any other Deepsea. It creates a more bold and sportive look for its 43 mm case.
As I was saying earlier, he also likes vintage Rolex watches. He was seen numerous times wearing a Datejust with a 36 mm gold case, pale gold dial, baton hour markers and a leather strap. Another one of his favorite vintage designs is a Rolex GMT Master with nipple dial, brown bezel and a fatstrap.
Just like her husband, Victoria Beckham prefers both modern and vintage Rolex watches. One of her usual choices is a gold Rolex Daytona with an in-house mechanical self-winding 4130 Calibre. This gold version looks particularly good on a delicate ladies wrist. Next, Victoria has been seen wearing a vintage Day-Date with a dark color dial and a Day-Date with a pastel green Stella dial. Connoisseurs know that a Stella dial is the nickname used for Rolex’s enamel dials. Even though the green pastel Stella dial with gold case is a men’s watch, the color combination is ravishing and it looks spectacular on the wrist of an elegant lady.
The moment when photographers are completely overwhelmed with joy is when David and Victoria Beckham show up in public, each one wearing his Rolex watch. No matter if it is a special event or simply a basketball match, the couple loves to show off their fabulous and expensive luxury Rolex timepieces.
Had cuteness of the player been important in tennis, Andy Roddick would have definitely won the Wimbledon at least once. Had choice of watch been relevant, Andy Roddick would have won at least two consecutive Wimbledon tournaments. Sporting a Rolex Daytona on his hand with the Runners’ shield of Wimbledon, it is difficult to take your eyes off the gold and black Rolex Daytona watch.
It is the only watch in the Rolex stable that has a chronograph. This watches probably the only one in the world which does not look ostentatious despite the excessive use of gold. Apart from the face of the watch, which is black, each and every part of the watch is dipped in gold.
The watch has the hours, minutes and seconds hand along with three sub dials on the face embossed in two concentric golden circles. The combination of gold on black ensures proper contrast and the tennis player will never find it difficult to know what the time is.
The watch does not have a date view but that seems irrelevant considering the classy finish of the watch. The metal strap is strong enough to withstand rough and tough usage as is evident from the fact that Andy Roddick chose to wear this watch in the final; where he was going bang bang at full speed at the tennis ball.
The best thing about the watch is that it is suitable for formal as well as casual occasions. Despite the fact that Andy Roddick is dressed in a T shirt and shorts, the watch seems particularly apt for the occasion.
On the right hand side of the face of the watch is the trademark crown of the watch with the Rolex crown embossed on it. It is flanked by two push buttons which operate the chronograph.
