Design
Coming from the fabulous Oyster collection of the luxury brand Rolex, this Cosmograph Daytona M116523-78593 CHAM INDEX has a two tone stainless steel body accentuated with yellow gold accents. A screw down back cover and winding push crown is also included in the design. A simplified minute and hour system integrated together on one side, with an off-center clutch both saves space and makes reading the time accurately easier. A fixed, 18 ct yellow gold bezel with Plexiglas inserts forms the highlight of the clock piece giving the watch an aura of elegance. The dial of the watch is provided with a scratch resistant sapphire glass that increases durability of the watch. High security Oysterlock clasps ensure that accidental loss of the watch does not happen.

Features
The Cosmograph Daytona M116523-78593 CHAM INDEX has a number of features that add to its functionality and performance. As this Cosmograph Daytona has been dedicated specifically to racing drivers, it has a high precision chronograph, which is not only self-winding, but also a spectacular caliber of 4130.  The precision achieved is such that the time interval can be measured up to 1/8 of a second. This makes the watch double up for drivers as a personal timing tool during endurance races. The tachymeter on the bezel allows for accurate measurement of speeds. 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 for maximum precision of time and easy reading. The chronograph system gets activated by pushers that normally screw down when not in use. This characterstic ensures that the watch is waterproof up to 100 metres.     

Interesting Facts
The Cosmograph Daytona M116523-78593 CHAM INDEX is available in more than one version to go with a wide variety of choice and style. The Rolesor versions have a different dial and an option of substituting the classic oyster bracelet with graceful leather bands is also available.

History
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.

 

Essence
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.

 

Features
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.

 

Associations
The Watches from this series are used as trophies for every winner of Le Mans and the Rolex 24 Daytona races.
