Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona

March 03, 2016

Introduced in 1963 to meet the needs of race car drivers, this timepiece features a bezel with a tachymetric scale, allowing drivers to measure their speed up to 400 miles or kilometers per hour. 

This is a versatile and elegant wristwatch for anyone with a need for speed. As global partner of Formula 1, Rolex still honors their traditional ties to motor sports. In the 1950s, they began their relationship with Daytona International Speedway, which became the inspiration for the Cosmograph Daytona. Rolex is now the official timepiece of the Rolex 24 at Daytona and the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Though it may have been designed for race car drivers, this watch is both elegant and distinguished, pictured here in platinum with an ice blue dial and chestnut brown bezel. With a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal that is water resistant up to 100 meters, this high precision personal timing tool can go sailing on the open water with you, too.

Style and function are not mutually exclusive when you own a Rolex, as the Daytona model demonstrates. The suggested retail price for the Daytona configuration shown above (reference # 116506) is 71,500 Swiss Francs, approximately $74,997 US.
