Michael Bublé’s New White-Gold Rolex Daytona Stole the Show During a Concert in Mexico

We’re heading into the most Michael Bublé time of the year, and the Canadian crooner’s newest watch is keeping him right on schedule.

The “Santa Baby” singer, who has become a modern patron saint of holiday music, performed a show in Mexico City on Thursday night with a sleek Rolex Cosmograph Daytona on his wrist. (He also showed off the same watch in a short Instagram video that was shared six days ago.)

Launched in 1963, the Daytona has been constantly refined and reimagined over the past six decades and has established itself as an exceptional racing chronograph. Rolex told Robb Report that this particular example is the Ref. 126519LN, which debuted at Watches and Wonders earlier this year.

The newcomer features a 40 mm case in 18-carat white gold, a steely gray dial with black subdials, and a black Cerachrom bezel with a tachymetric scale for measuring average speeds of up to 400 mph. The small seconds subdial at 6 o’clock allows an accurate reading to 1/8th of a second, while the two counters at 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock display the elapsed time in minutes and hours, respectively.

The timepiece is powered by the fresh new caliber 4131. The bidirectional self-winding movement achieves an impressive power reserve of approximately 72 hours. To top it off, the piece is equipped with Rolex’s patented Oysterflex bracelet, a rubber design that closes with a metal clasp. The watch, if you can get one, will set you back $32,100 in total.

Bublé has enjoyed a harmonious partnership with the Crown, sporting a number of coveted models over the past decade. His collection includes an AirKing, Datejust, and multiple Daytonas, to name but a few. In 2016, Bublé told BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs that his Rolex was the one luxury he would take with him to a tropical abyss. (The program was then forced to re-edit the interview, as it breached the BBC’s strict editorial guidelines regarding advertising on its shows.)

Perhaps we should call him the patron saint of Rolex, too.
