The Cosmograph Daytona, introduced in 1963, was developed to meet the needs of professional racers. With its chronograph mechanism and bezel with tachymeter scale, the driver can perfectly elapsed circuit and calculate the average speed. The Cosmograph Daytona is presented here Everose gold.
Rolex are meticulous with their attention to detail. Quality control amongst Rolex staff is paramount. Lettering and print should appear perfect as Rolex wouldn’t sign off a watch that was anything less. Eyebrows should definitely be raised if there is any discolouration or inconsistency within the lettering itself. The spacing and font should be exact and if there is any lettering that is bubbled or crooked at all, then it is most definitely a fake.
Rolex Daytona does not have a date window. Any models containing this feature are absolutely replicas.
The Cosmograph Daytona was designed as the ultimate tool for drivers on a long-distance race. While the central second hand scanning allows accurate reading of 1/8 second, the two counters at 9 and 3 clock to measure each time, winning in 1 hour and minute that the driver, to make their trip can choose time accuracy and such to manage.
Rolex, form and function work together. Rolex engineers have used the technology to create the perfect spring to activate the chronograph mechanism when the finger pressure on the push exerted. The result is not only a reliable operation of the chronograph, but also crisp, clear “click”, also known by the users of this unique clock.
Daytonas have a triplock system to withstand underwater depths to prevent water from entering the case. The lack of this system is an easy way to authenticate a watch. If you pull out the crown there should be a black rubber gasket visible at the end of it – that’s the triplock system.
