Description

The Daytona story began like a love story with racecar drivers, one of the most successful drivers used to wear Rolex watches was Sir Malcom Campbell who set many speed records in Europe and in a Florida city called Daytona Beach, he attracted the attention of Rolex and became their ambassador.

In 1955 version, the Reference 6234, was labeled the “Rolex Chronograph” a pre-Daytona model.
The birth, in 1963 the Rolex Chronograph reference 6239 with a tachometer scale engrave on the bezel to enhance readability of the dial was released, incredibly the initial name Rolex used was “Le Mans”, another famous racetrack based in France.  It’s only by 1965 that the *Daytona* name started to be printed on the dial of the 6239. Surprisingly the Daytona wasn’t a success back then, despite celebrities like Paul Newman endorsing it.

Eventually the model became popular and a more modern version was released in 1988 using an automatic Zenith “El Primero” modified movement, the reference 16520 (steel), reference 16523 (in steel and gold) and reference 16528 (in yellow gold).  Main difference was the case size of 40mm, 3mm bigger than its predecessor and the adoption of a sapphire crystal to replace the Plexiglas.  The limited supply helped the watch achieve a cult status.

By 2000, Rolex started to use an in-house movement on the new 116500 series, it remained the most sought after model.
In 2013 the Daytona Cosmograph Platinum (reference 116506) created by Rolex to commemorate fifty years from the launch of its most celebrated watch.

In 2016 the steel Daytona was refreshed with a new black ceramic bezel the 116500LN series.
With each release, the Daytona reinforces its status of cult sport watch, certainly the most desired sports watch in the world.

 

Introducing the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona 126500LN-0002, a legendary timepiece that embodies the perfect blend of precision engineering, iconic design, and timeless luxury. This exceptional watch continues the legacy of the Rolex Daytona collection, celebrated for its association with motorsport and its unparalleled reputation in the world of horology.

At the heart of the Daytona 126500LN-0002 beats the Rolex Caliber 4130, a self-winding mechanical movement known for its precision and reliability. This movement is equipped with a Parachrom hairspring, which enhances its resistance to shocks and magnetic fields, ensuring that the watch maintains exceptional accuracy over time.

The case of this Daytona model is crafted from Rolex’s signature Oystersteel, a high-performance stainless steel alloy that is both robust and corrosion-resistant. Its 40mm size strikes the perfect balance, making it suitable for various wrist sizes, and the iconic tachymetric bezel with a black Cerachrom insert is not only functional for measuring speeds but also adds a touch of sporty sophistication.

The black dial of the Daytona 126500LN-0002 features contrasting white chronograph sub-dials, providing optimal legibility while paying homage to the classic racing aesthetics of the Daytona collection. The central sweep seconds hand, along with the two pushers on the side of the case, allows precise measurement of elapsed time.

The watch’s Oyster case is complemented by a robust Oyster bracelet, ensuring both comfort and durability. The patented Easylink extension system allows for quick adjustments to the bracelet length, adapting effortlessly to changes in wrist size or climate conditions.
