The Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona is the ultimate tool watch for those with a passion for driving and speed. Introduced in 1963, the Cosmograph Daytona was designed to meet the demands of professional racing drivers. It is an icon forever joined in name and function to the high-performance world of motor sport. More than 50 years after its creation, the Cosmograph Daytona remains in a class of its own among sport chronographs and continues to transcend time.
With its tachymetric scale, its three counters and its pushers, the Cosmograph Daytona was designed to be the ultimate timing tool for endurance racing drivers. This chronograph allows the driver to measure elapsed time, which is displayed in hours, minutes and seconds on the dial. The hours and minutes are shown on the watch’s distinctive counters at 9 and 3 o’clock respectively, and the seconds are read using the arrow-tipped centre hand and the 60-second scale around the dial.
