The Cosmograph Daytona, introduced in 1963, was designed to meet the demands of professional racing drivers. An icon eternally joined in name and function to the high‑performance world of motor sport. Fifty years after its creation, the Cosmograph Daytona remains in a class of its own among sport chronographs.
The Daytona’s design is an exercise in perfectly mastered symmetry. With its techymetric scale, its three counters and its pushers, the Daytona was designed to be the ideal instrument for measuring elapsed time and calculating average speeds on a perfectly legible display – while remaining the most elegant of Rolex’s sports watches.
