The revival of the Cosmograph Daytona by Rolex

Presented originally in 1963, the Swiss company reinvents one of its sports classics: Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona.

The model that pays homage to Daytona Florida is a watch made with a solid block of 18 carat yellow gold and equipped with a 4130 caliber, and a self-winding mechanical chronograph movement, developed and manufactured by Rolex. The classic tachymeter scale of the brand is replaced by 36 trapeze-cut diamonds, which gives it a more formal touch.

The detail? The piece has the traditional hour and minute hands in the center, a small seconds hand, a chronograph with a precision of 1/8 of a second with a central needle, a 30-minute counter and a 12-hour counter. These functions are what gave the model a space in the universe of motor racing, where the chronometric requirements are crucial.
