Initially known as Wilsdorf and Davis, the company was set up in a joint collaboration by Alfred Davis and his brother-in-law Hans Wilsdorf in the year 1905, in London. It came to be known as Rolex in the year 1908, and sbhifted base to Geneva in 1919.
A part of the fabulous Oyster collection of the brand Rolex, this Daytona M116515 LN_ CHOCO ARB has an Everose case that contrasts extremely well with the dial. This Cosmograph Daytona has been designed specifically as a trophy for every winner of Le Mans, thus it has been given an extraordinarily high precision level. The bezel of the watch is made of black monobloc Cerachrom and features a tachymeter scale. A high quality black leather strap with the signature Rolex Gold folding Oysterlock safety clasp, ensures the safety of the watch when you wear it.
A chocolate dial with snailed small counters forms the highlight of the timepiece. A scratch resistant sapphire glass over the dial offers protection from external wear and tear. Three sub-dials are included in the design of this timepiece. A 30-minute counter is positioned at the 3 o'clock mark and a 12-hour counter is positioned at the 9 o'clock mark, while a second’s counter can be seen at 6 o’clock. The Rolex crown is showcased in all its glory at the 12 o’clock position.
The Daytona M116515 LN_ CHOCO ARB has a number of features that add to its functionality and performance. It is a high precision chronograph, which is not only self-winding with a mechanical movement, but also has a spectacular caliber of 4130. The precision achieved is such that the time interval can be measured up to a 1/8 interval of time. A screw down back cover and winding push crown is also included in the design, which gives it that triple water resistance that is given to the range of diver’s watches. This makes it waterproof to a depth of 100 metres, which means that it can be easily worn while swimming in the pool, without causing any damage to the clock mechanism.
In 1963, Rolex launched a new-generation chronograph. It was called the Cosmograph and was dedicated to racing drivers. The series was immediately recognised as an unconventional model with prominent style and detail. The chronograph counters for these watches were of highly contrasting colour, black against a light coloured dial or vice versa. This made the chronograph stand out clearly, so that the drivers could make out the time at a single glance. The initial models of the series featured a tachymetric scale, responsible for the measurement of average speeds over a given distance using the chronograph seconds hand. The dials were simplified because the chronograph was moved to the bezel. This made the range appear technical and sporty.
The Cosmograph Daytona is not just a timepiece. It pays homage to the passion for speed, which propels racers. The Sand Beach in Daytona, Florida became famous worldwide as the perfect place to beat speed records during 1903-1905. It has been a site where several official records were set. This led to Daytona being the world capital of speed.
The Cosmograph Daytona range has a dial, which carries the name “Daytona” in red letters. It is indeed an iconic watch, available in 904L steel. This steel is a super alloy used in high technology, aerospace and chemical industries because of properties like corrosion resistivity even in the harshest of environments. This Cosmograph Daytona boasts of a glorious heritage because the aesthetics of the later models deliberately remained true to the codes of the 1988 as it was during this time that the Daytona became self-winding. The newer designs were crafted in a method that they still exuded their old charm but modern features like perfect ergonomics also began to find to find their way. A masterpiece when it comes to blending engineering and micro mechanics, these watches feature a self-winding chronograph movement called calibre 4130, which is manufactured in-house by Rolex in its entirety.
The Watches from this series are used as trophies for every winner of Le Mans and the Rolex 24 Daytona races.
