Created in 1963, this watch has established an extraordinary track record in the world of motor sport, rising to the rank of an icon.
On this new 18 ct Everose gold version, in lieu of the emblematic tachymetric scale, the bezel is set with a gradation of sapphires in rainbow hues.
The case is adorned with 56 brilliant-cut diamonds set into the lugs and crown guard, and the dial features 11 baguette-cut sapphire hour markers, each of which matches the colour of the corresponding point on the bezel.
The chronograph counters are in pink Gold Crystals, a material with a particular shimmer effect, created during the crystallisation of a pink gold alloy by means of a special process developed by Rolex.
Like all Rolex watches, the new Cosmograph Daytona carries the Superlative Chronometer certification, which ensures excellent performance on the wrist.
The Cosmograph Daytona’s Oyster case, guaranteed waterproof to a depth of 100 metres (330 feet), is a paragon of robustness and reliability. Its middle case, with an integral crown guard, is crafted from a solid block of 18 ct Everose gold.
The case back, edged with fine gluting, is hermetically screwed down with a special tool that allows only Rolex watchmakers to access the movement. The winding crown, fitted with the Triplock triple waterproofness system, screws down securely against the case, along with the chronograph pushers.
The crystal is made of virtually scratchproof sapphire.
The waterproof Oyster case provides optimum protection for the Cosmograph Daytona’s high-precision movement.
