3 Classic Rolex Combos You Can’t Do Without

Paul Altieri

Never underestimate a classic color palette

One of the most classic combinations from Rolex is a two-toned steel and yellow gold case and bracelet with a light dial – it just works beautifully. Whether on a classic model such as the Datejust, or on sportier watches like the Daytona and Yacht-Master, the yellow Rolesor coupled with a bright dial is a timeless look that will always be in style. 

Yellow Rolesor Daytona, Datejust and Lady Yacht-Master are Classic Rolex watches.

Cosmograph Daytona 116523

The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona is an iconic sports watch decked out in classic hues is an unforgettable look. The clean light color of the dial allows the counters, hands, and indexes to pop, while the mix of stainless steel and 18k yellow gold lends both ruggedness and luxury to the watch. Plus the gold tachymeter bezel and gold pushers and crown of the Daytona 116523’s 40mm Oystercase emphasize the broad size of the piece while still maintaining its elegance.

Cosmograph Daytona 116523 is a two-tone watch made for those who have a need for speed.


The engine within the Cosmograph Daytona 116523 is the Rolex Caliber 4130, a self-winding chronograph mechanical movement with the chronograph (center hand) accurate to within 1/8 of a second, a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock and a12-hour counter at 9 o’clock.

This particular classic color combo of grey stainless steel, yellow gold and white dial affirms the two tone Rolex Daytona as the quintessential luxury chronograph watch.

Datejust 116333

Although the Rolex Datejust is the brand’s most versatile and customizable watch, the ultimate Rolex classic dressed in classic shades is a formula that will always work. The cool grey of the stainless steel 36mm Oystercase and bracelet outer links contrasts perfectly with the warm 18k yellow gold of the fluted bezel, winding crown and bracelet center links, while the ivory dial sets up the ideal backdrop for the gold hands, baton markers and crown logo to really shine through.

The Datejust 116333 is powered by the Rolex Caliber 3136 with instantaneous date function with rapid setting and stop-seconds for precise time setting.

The most “Rolex” of Rolex watches, the yellow Rolesor Datejust 116333 is an exemplary example of the timeless elegance of the brand.

Lady Yacht-Master 69623

A sporty, yet luxurious, little number for ladies that is just as fitting out on the open seas as it is among a more formal setting, the Rolex Yacht-Master 69623 can take on several personas thanks to its yellow Rolesor attire. The predominately stainless steel 29mm Oystercase and Oyster bracelet benefit from added preciousness via the 18k yellow gold rotatable bezel and bracelet inner links. Not only does the white dial harmonize impeccably with the mix of metals, but it also allows for clear legibility of the gold hands, black hour-markers and Cyclops-magnified date window at 3 o’clock.

The Yacht-Master 69623 is outfitted with the Rolex Caliber 2135 self-winding mechanical movement, and just like its male counterpart, it is a Superlative Chronometer Official Certified timepiece.

The two-toned Lady Yacht-Master strikes an effortless balance between a sturdy sports watch and exclusive feminine appeal despite its absence in the women’s community until released.
