All About The Rolex Daytona

Rose gold and stainless

Rolex has always been associated with car racing. So it’s not surprising that the Swiss watchmaker has created one of the most popular chronographs in the world, the Rolex Daytona. The watch was launched in 1963 and it comes in many awe-inspiring designs that have caught the attention of watch collectors all over the world. It is also a highly fashionable watch, making it a gentlemen’s favorite. But don’t let the Daytona’s good looks distract you from the fact that it is one of the best chronographs ever created. It has been certified as among the Superlative Chronometers, the highest possible recognition that a mechanical watch can get from the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute.

An interesting feature of the Rolex Daytona is its bezel that has a tachymeter. It allows the watch to measure speeds of up to 400 miles per hour. You’ll find the name Daytona in red at the top of the bottom-most sub-dial on most models. The watch is named after the Daytona International Speedway, a famous race track located in Florida. The speedway that opened in 1959 is home to two of the world’s most famous racing events, NASCAR and the Daytona 500. This is why the Daytona is a very popular watch among race car drivers and racing enthusiasts.

The platinum model

The Daytona comes in different models and they vary in price. One of the most expensive is the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Platinum. It has an ice dial and baguette diamond indexes. It features a chestnut brown bezel that is made from very durable ceramic, making it highly resistant to scratches. It’s also guaranteed not to fade easily thanks to its corrosion-resistant feature. This particular model of the Daytona will cost you $82,500. And it’s not even the most expensive model. For example, the Lemon Dial Paul Newman Daytona was sold for a jaw-dropping amount of $840,000.

Rose gold and stainless

Also popular is the Everose, which is otherwise known as Rolex Daytona Rose Gold. It features a proprietary pink gold alloy hence the name. It’s sought-after by collectors mainly because of its color. If you’re a true watch enthusiast then you should also know about the stainless steel model. It comes in two versions, one with a white dial and the other with a black dial. Rolex has just recently stopped producing the stainless steel model of the Daytona. They are being replaced by a newer model, one made with ultra-durable ceramic material.
