The name Rolex commands respect. With such a long and storied history of producing the very best and most sought after luxury watches, Rolex doesn’t have to do much to convince a watch connoisseur that any of its current products are worth seeking after, saving for, and desiring. After all, with decade after decade of Rolex’ synonymity with high quality, luxury, and the best things in life, it would seem that Rolex only needs to put its label on a watch for that watch to take a life of its own among watch collectors. This is how much power the Rolex label has. Sadly, one only needs to consider the huge amount of counterfeits on the market to truly appreciate the brand power Rolex has. It truly is the gold standard when it comes to men’s luxury watch brands. With that said, just because a watch has ‘Rolex’ on it doesn’t necessarily mean it makes sense in your particular situation. You have to select Rolex watches carefully. Some do a better job of accentuating your personality and style than others.

116520WSO Overview & My Thoughts
When it comes to Rolex watches, the Rolex Daytona White Index Dial Oyster Bracelet Mens Watch is rather tame and somewhat sporty. Thanks to its scratch-resistant Sapphire dial window and its bezel design, you’d be forgiven for thinking that this watch is a sportswatch. It definitely has some sporty elements. Unfortunately, the Rolex Daytona White Index Dial Oyster Bracelet Mens Watch lacks water resistance and doesn’t truly qualify as a sports watch. It is what it is-a ‘sporty’ luxury watch.
Rolex Daytona Style: Sporty luxury watch
Make no mistake about it, the Rolex Daytona White Index Dial Oyster Bracelet Mens Watch is a luxury watch first and foremost. It has the impeccable Rolex craftsmanship and design you’d expect from a Rolex. With that said, it does tend to send mixed signals. It has sporty elements and sapphire-based scratch resistance but is not water resistant. Still, if you want to look sporty indoors, this watch is a great choice.
Daytona Movement Type: Automatic
A ‘luxury’ watch is not really a luxury watch unless it has an automatic movement. Sure, there are great quartz watches out there but for true luxury, you need to go with an automatic movement mechanism. The Rolex Daytona White Index Dial Oyster Bracelet Mens Watch definitely delivers on this front.
Rolex 116520WSO Special Features: Screw down crown
The screw down crown for the Rolex Daytona White Index Dial Oyster Bracelet Mens Watch is a nice touch. It brings a genteel touch to what would otherwise be a design that is a bit too sporty.
Critics of the Rolex Daytona White Index Dial Oyster Bracelet Mens Watch might say that it is ‘neither fish nor fowl’ because of this model’s confusing juxtaposition of sporty elements with its luxury label and design. They would be missing the point. This is a luxury watch through and through with a sporty accent. It delivers the best of both worlds-you get a high definition luxury watch with an impeccable label while projecting a ‘sporty’ side of your personality.
