Motor-racing, precision, elegance and luxury – all these can be found in one watch. It is Rolex Cosmograph Daytona, first launched in 1963 to fulfill special needs of professional drivers who sought for the highest precision, superb functionality and perfect legibility in endurance races.
Named after the most famous motor racing circuit in the United States, Cosmograph Daytona Collection featured two big innovations for its time, which has brought it enormous popularity and the status of brand’s icon. For the first time, a watch from Rolex incorporated a self-winding movement with three chronograph counters. Along with a tachymeter scale engraved on its bezel, they allowed precise measuring of elapsed circuit time and speed. Furthermore, fat hands and over-sized hour markers of the Cosmograph Daytona, all coated with Super-Luminova, provides superb readability.
Besides their great functionality and beautiful sporty elegance, Cosmograph Daytona timepieces are also renowned by their luxury. Almost every watch from the collection is made of gold (white, yellow, Everose).
