The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona is among the brand's most beloved watch series. Once upon a time, it was literally impossible to buy a new model without a 3-year wait, despite Rolex never publishing advertisements for the watches for decades.
The Cosmograph Daytona defines the Rolex relationship with racing. Daytona was and is the world "Capital of Speed", being known for motorcar racing for over a century.
The Cosmograph Daytona was launched in the 60's for professional racing drivers, who were drawn to its precise chronograph features and the engraved tachymeter scale on its bezel. This enabled them to map average speeds up to 400 kilometres per hour by measuring time over a given distance.
With its Pink and black dial, the Rolex Daytona Cosmograph is indeed a stunning, contemporary timepiece.
The black Plexiglas insert on the tachymetric bezel ensures accuracy. The Cosmograph Daytona uses the legendary Oyster case made of Everose gold (18 ct pink gold alloy uniquely created by Rolex). The Oyster case is known for high quality waterproofing and has a winding crown made of 10 parts. This is perfectly complemented by the pink bracelet with flat three-piece links. The movement of the device is the automatic self-winding calibre 4130. The display is made of scratch-resistant synthetic sapphire crystal.
The watch uses natural wrist activity to power the watch’s movement, and doesn’t need to be wound manually. The wrist bracelet length is designed to be comfortably changed as per changes in temperature, altitude and physical activity, because of Rolex’s patented Easylink technology. The bracelet length can be increased by 5 mm comfortably. The Cosmograph Daytona features a seconds hand on the lower sub-dial (neighbouring the six o'clock position), with the other sub-dials displaying elapsed minutes and hours.
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.
