About Rolex Daytona
The Rolex Daytona, originally introduced as the "Cosmograph Daytona" in 1963, is an iconic timepiece renowned for its association with professional racing. The name "Daytona" was later added as a tribute to the Daytona International Speedway in Florida. The initial model, Reference 6239, featured a stainless steel case, black acrylic bezel with a tachymeter scale, and pump-style chronograph pushers. In the 1970s, actor Paul Newman popularized the watch when he was seen wearing one, leading to the nickname "Rolex Daytona Paul Newman" for specific dial variations. In 2013, Rolex became a global partner and official sponsor of Formula 1 Racing. The Daytona has since undergone design and movement enhancements, including automatic movements, screw-down chronograph pushers, and the use of a ceramic bezel. Today, the Rolex Daytona is highly coveted by collectors, no matter vintage or new models. 2023 was the daytona 60 anniversary. Rolex has redesigned the whole Daytona series, powered by a new calibre 4131. It has bought a new standard of excellence in robustness, reliability, efficiency and precision.
