After the time scale is changed to the same sapphire as the bezel, the aura of the whole watch becomes more restrained but more consistent, and because the orange sapphire and gold case are also warm colors, with a black rubber strap The face plate complements each other, so Fei Tianwang wears a plain black suit and wears a Daytona 116588SACO to add points to his style.

Federer rarely wears the Rolex Daytona 116588SACO with gemstones. This is the brand’s facelift to be launched in 2022 and belongs to the catalog hidden version.
