The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona is one of Rolex’s most legendary sports watches. With its timeless, robust design, and precision accuracy, the Rolex Daytona is arguably more popular than the famous race track from which it took its name. Sharing a similar status to the Submariner, the Daytona is a highly-coveted model for racing enthusiasts and Rolex aficionados alike.
The Daytona was launched in 1963, and designed to meet the demands of professional racing drivers. Fitted with a tachymetric bezel, the Swiss chronograph measures speeds of up to 400 km per hour, and the Calibre 4130 enables highly accurate precision starts, and a 72-hour power reserve. Make no mistake – the Daytona is a superbly engineered professional tool.
As well as offering the high-end functionality demanded by elite racing drivers, the Rolex Daytona has a remarkable heritage. Its iconic design has seen it become one of the most desirable watches in the world. The watch has also become intimately connected with Hollywood star and racecar enthusiast Paul Newman. The star’s own personal Daytona, which he wore every day for 15 years, became the most expensive watch in the world when it was auctioned for £13.5m in 2017.
Like all Rolex watches, the materials that go into a Daytona are of the highest standard. The patented Cerachrom material used on all recent Rolex bezels is highly-scratch resistant and UV resistant. The sapphire crystal is virtually scratchproof. And whether you choose Oystersteel, yellow gold, white gold, Everose gold, or a combination of these, your Daytona is waterproof to 100m.
