Rolex Cosmograph Daytona
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.
Datejust engraved bezel can be used as counter to calculate the velocity. By measuring the time, by a predetermined distance can be used elapsed The Cosmograph Daytona is an ideal instrument for the measurement of up to 400 units per hour, if specified in kilometers or miles.
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.
Inside the elegant exterior of the Cosmograph Daytona is a masterpiece of watchmaking. The caliber 4130 chronograph was designed and assembled by Rolex in 2000 exclusively for the Cosmograph Daytona and contains only 290 components - much less than a standard chronograph - which is a much admired symphony simplicity. It has a power reserve of 72 hours (66 hours if the stopwatch is in use) and within the Parachrom blue spiral - consists of a unique blend insensitive to magnetic fields - gives 10 times more impact resistant than conventional coils.
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.
Already in the 1930s, Rolex has produced its first chronograph. In 1935, while automotive technology was still in its infancy, Sir Malcolm Campbell, British daredevil with a Rolex on your wrist, set the world speed record on land and went into the history of more than 300 miles (484 km) per hour in his famous "Blue Bird". A remarkable achievement for the time!
With a drop of the green flag, gave way to anticipation of intense action. For 24 hours in a row demanding drivers must withstand competition from all sectors of the race, the constant curve and a tennis ball only 20% illuminated at night. If for one moment to another leads the resistance to physical and mental fatigue, the possibility of victory slipping as fast as a speeding opponents. Drivers who remain steadfast and confident in the face of danger, however, go further than ever before.
Rolex SA was first established in 1905 by Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis in London. They transferred the company's office to La Chau-de-Fonds to Switzerland in 1908. The company's first name was Wilsdorf & Davis" but Wilsdorf renamed it Rolex. The word "Rolex" has a lot of stories behind it. Some say that it was chosen because of its similar sound to a winding watch. It is also said that the name fits just right onto the dial. Until now, the company is famous for its innovations starting with the first waterproof watch case, first two timezones on a wristwatch, first date on the dial, and first chronometer certification for a wristwatch.
Rolex Daytona in The Sixties
When it was first released in 1963, the Daytona was unable to make a splash despite the manufacturer’s marketing efforts so much so that its lackluster performance encouraged retailers to offer it at deep discounts. In those days, the watches were manufactured without the “Daytona” print on the dial and, in fact, many were called Le Mans in the advertisements; Le Mans was another endurance race. Soon, the Le Mans designation disappeared and the Daytona name appeared.
In fact, Rolex became a sponsor of the 24-hour endurance race starting in 1963, the year the Daytona debuted. Since then, the winner the annual Daytona 500 NASCAE race receives the current year’s model chronograph – truly, an enviable prize considering the prestige and price of each Rolex piece. The Daytona, by the way, was the first chronograph released by Rolex with a tachymeter on the bezel, a feature that allows the wearer to easily and quickly calculate speed (i.e., distance over time).
The 1960s were also the time when many of the now-iconic Daytonas were released. In 1965, the first Oyster Daytona was released, a timepiece that featured water-resistant screw-down pushers known as the Oyster Cosmographs. The non-Oyster watches, the ones with the round pump pushers, were also available. In 1969, the Daytonas with reference numbers 6263 with its black acrylic bezel and the 6265 with the metal bezel were also released – and in the coming years, these two became the pillars for growing a Daytona collection.
Rolex Daytona is often made of 18-carat white gold, pink gold, 18-carat yellow gold or stainless steel. Its cases are often decorated with sapphires, diamonds, and bezel.
