The Cosmograph Daytona was first introduced in 1963 to meet the high-precision needs of measuring elapsed time for professional racing drivers. The chronograph featured a tachymetre scale on the bezel and allowed the racers to measure average speeds of 400 miles or kilometres per hour.

The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona M116523-78593_ Blk Ind is made of Yellow Rolesor, a unique mix of 904L steel and 18 ct yellow gold, created specially in the company's own foundry for unmatched beauty and durability. Stick style hour, minute and second hands adorn the dial along with two sub-dials to serve the chronograph function and the 6’o clock sub dial to keep seconds time.
The dial is a bold black colour and is detailed with 18 carat diamond indexes in a gold setting for a dash of splendour.

The Oyster Monobloc case of the Rolex is hermetically sealed to protect the watch mechanism from elements such as dust, water and presssure. This allows for a water-resistance of 100 metres in the  Cosmograph Daytona M116523-78593_ Blk Ind.

The watch case window is made of a highly scratch-resistant sapphire crystal that is also anti-reflective in nature for easy time telling.

The chronograph is precise to one-eighth of a second. The timepiece is an officially certified Superlative Chronometer, which essentially means that the watch has undergone a rigorous test in varying positions and temperature settings for 15 days and 15 nights by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute. 

The blue Parachrom hairspring of the watch, finer than a human hair and created from niobium and zirconium is 10 times more resistant to shocks than conventional oscillator hairsprings so your device ejnoys a long-life even in less than perfect conditions.

Interesting Facts
The waterproofness of the Rolex watch is thoroughly tested through a three step process that includes a vacuum test, pressure test and condensation test, designed to reveal even the tiniest trace of moisture content in the case.

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.
