Add This to Your Wish List – The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona
The Rolex name obviously needs no introduction. Quality, fit and finish are top notch. Over the years, a great number of watchmakers have gotten involved in the automotive cross-marketing and race inspired luxury timepiece wars. And, for the most part, the execution across the board has been phenomenal. But the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona is still one must-have watch for any true collector. It’s something about the back-to-basics steel band and casing, bright tachometer readouts and simple design that gives it an edgy, sporty look that never gets old.
The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona in steel is hefty but not oversized at 40 mm. The dial is available in either black or white with a sapphire crystal glass face. It’s waterproof to 100 meters and is self-winding. The watch is great for measuring elapsed time and calculating average speed. It features a graduated tachometer bezel and a sweep second hand, minute and hour totalisators. This Rolex tends to sell on average for $12,500 but has an MSRP that is several thousands lower. The Cosmograph Daytona is a high demand, low volume watch which expertly marries form and function and should be on the wish list of any racing fanatic.
