Created by Rolex in 1963, the Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona is a luxury watch born to race. It has established an extraordinary track record in the world of motor sport thanks to its reliability and performance. Known simply as the “Daytona”, the timepiece has risen to the rank of an icon as one of the best known chronographs in the world.
The 40 mm Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona, equipped with a monobloc Cerachrom bezel in black ceramic, is the newest version of the iconic Daytona series and is being present at Baselworld this year.
The bezel’s high-tech black ceramic was developed and patented by Rolex. It is virtually scratchproof and corrosion resistant and the colour is unaffected by UV rays. This authentic watch also offers an exceptionally legible tachymetric scale, thanks to the deposit of a thin layer of platinum in the numerals and graduations via a PVD process. A key part of the Cosmograph Daytona’s identity, the tachymetric scale can measure speeds of up to 400 miles or kilometres per hour.

The Cosmograph Daytona’s automatic chronograph movement Calibre 4130, encased in polished 904L stainless steel, is accurate to within one-eighth of a second and boasts a power reserve of approximately 72 hours. This luxury watch carries the Superlative Chronometer certification redefined by Rolex in 2015, which ensures singular performance on the wrist.
The authentic watch comes in two versions – a white lacquer dial with black snailed counters and a black lacquer dial with grey snailed counters. In both versions, the hour markers and the hands are white 18k gold with Chromalight.
A blend of high technology and sleek aesthetics, this newest Cosmograph Daytona timepiece pays tribute to the chronograph’s rich heritage. The black bezel is reminiscent of the 1965 model that was fitted with a black Plexiglas bezel insert.
