Rolex Cosmograph Daytona in Everose Gold
Among Rolex's most iconic designs stands the Cosmograph Daytona. Created and used primarily as a timepiece for racing, the Daytona aptly earned its name for providing accurate speed readings by pit-crews and drivers alike during the golden age of motorsport.
On the dial, we can see three subdials that count elapsed minutes and hours, along with continuous seconds. In addition to the no-nonsense chronograph functionality, the watch sports a tachymetre on the bezel, and a micro-seconds track for more precise timekeeping on the outer edge of the dial. Another interesting feature of the Cosmograph Daytona, is the addition of screw-down pushers to operate the flyback chronograph. This specific style of pusher allows for the watch to maintain a reliable 100m water resistance, that is otherwise uncommon with chronograph timepieces.
Our Cosmograph Daytona pictured here is a reference 116505 Chocolate Arabic. The case is made of a proprietary Rolex Rose Gold 18kt alloy called Everose Gold. The bracelet comes in the same alloy type, and is styled in the popular Oyster Bracelet arrangement. Rolex's clean, attractive, and functional elegance does not end with the case and dial; under the hood, we can observe a Rolex Calibre 4130 automatic movement. The 4130 is an impressive chronometer grade caliber that sports a proprietary antimagnetic Parachrom balance spring, a bi-directional winding rotor, and a grand 72 hours of power reserve. Our timepiece comes with the original Rolex green leather display box, a Rolex servicing guide and brochure, the original warranty card, operations manual, and a Rolex branded brochure and history guide.
The watch contains a scrambled serial number, and the original date of purchase from a Rolex Authorized Dealer was in November of 2013.
