Description

First introduced in 1963, the Rolex Daytona is a legendary chronograph watch designed for motor racing enthusiasts. It boasts a highly precise and reliable movement and is recognized for its robustness and outstanding performance on and off the racetrack. The 116518LN model is a testament to the evolution of the Daytona, showcasing Rolex’s continued commitment to innovation and refinement.

The highlight of the Daytona Meteorite Oysterflex 116518LN is its stunning meteorite dial, featuring a unique pattern that varies from one watch to another, ensuring that each timepiece is truly one-of-a-kind. Contrasting black sub-dials and 18k yellow gold hour markers and hands add a touch of elegance to the dial, with luminescent material ensuring readability in low-light conditions.

The 40mm Oyster case, crafted from 18k yellow gold, houses the robust and precise Rolex Calibre 4130. This self-winding mechanical chronograph movement boasts a 72-hour power reserve and is a certified Swiss chronometer, ensuring the watch’s accuracy and reliability. The case is also water-resistant up to 100 meters (330 feet), thanks to the Triplock winding crown and screw-down pushers.

The Oysterflex bracelet, a Rolex innovation, combines the durability and waterproofness of a rubber strap with the comfort and aesthetics of a metal bracelet. The high-performance elastomer strap features a flexible metal blade core, offering superior resilience while maintaining a sleek appearance. The 18k yellow gold Oysterlock safety clasp ensures the watch remains securely on the wrist.

Other noteworthy features of the Daytona Meteorite Oysterflex 116518LN include the Cerachrom bezel, a Rolex-patented ceramic material known for its resistance to scratches, corrosion, and fading. The tachymetric scale engraved on the bezel allows the wearer to measure average speeds up to 400 units per hour, paying homage to the watch’s racing heritage.

 

 

Rolex – bio

Founded in 1905 by Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis in London, initially as Wilsdorf & Davis Ltd. Renamed Rolex by 1908 and moved its base of operations to Geneva, Switzerland in 1919.  Their success is due to their innovation namely the legendary “Oyster” case – first water resistant watch and their extremely reliable movements.
The most famous models are Datejust, Day-Date, Daytona, Explorer, GMT-Master, Submariner and many more.
The company is owned by the Hans Wilsdorf Foundation, a family private trust.
One story, never confirmed by Wilsdorf, recounts that the name came from the French words “horlogerie exquise”, meaning “exquisite clockwork”.
