Introduced in 1963, the Rolex Daytona was designed to meet the demands of professional racing drivers. With its highly reliable chronograph and bezel with tachymetre scale, it allows drivers to perfectly measure average speeds up to 400 kilometres or miles per hour, as they choose. An icon eternally joined in name and function to the high‑performance world of motor sport.”Daytona”is a memorable name which has created a legend before it has a thousand and one links with Rolex basic classic style. It all started in the early 20th Century in Florida, the United Daytona beach. With straight terrain, this vast hard sand zone stretches over 35 kilometers (22 miles). The natural circuit of the beach at the entrance to the beach is extraordinary, attracting many people from all over Europe and the United States to compete with other racing-drivers. Why so many racers choose Replica Rolex Daytona?
Daytona’s fame spread all over the world because of car racing and won the reputation”the speed capital of the world”.In March 1935, Daytona, the British driver Malcolm Campbell hit an average of 445 kilometers per hour which is the highest speed record at that time. Significantly, this “speed king” had been wearing the Rolex oyster watch from the beginning of 1930s. For half a century, COSMOGRAPH DAYTONA has created its own legend. Every year in January, the drivers came to this race. Many of the world’s excellent endurance racing drivers believe that Rolex COSMOGRAPH DAYTONA is still the highest honor.
In order to maintain the beauty of the pink gold watches, Rolex created an exclusive 18 ct pink gold alloy cast in its own foundry: Everose gold. Introduced in 2005, 18 ct Everose is used on many Rolex models. It is worth noting the ivory dial. The central sweep seconds hand allows an accurate reading of 1/8 second, while the two counters on the dial display the lapsed time in hours and minutes. Drivers can accurately map out their track times and tactics. The Daytona’s chronograph functions are activated by pushers that screw down like the winding crown when they are not in use, guaranteeing waterproofness to 100 metres.
The Cosmograph Daytona is equipped with calibre 4130, a self-winding mechanical chronograph movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. This model is equipped with Rolex proprietary Parachrom hairspring which offers greater resistance to shocks and to temperature variations. There is no doubt; the movement supports the functions excellently.
