Luxury watch design by Rolex

A legend from the world of luxury watch design comes face to face with one of the world’s most iconic rallies – meet the Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona by Rolex. This model is a particular favourite of racing drivers since it is fitted with totalisers which calculate average speeds and lap times. The watch features the technical superiority you would expect from Rolex; all parts are in-house manufactured and this timepiece also features the patented PARACHROM hairspring which is resistant to shock and magnetic fields. Power reserve on this model is 72 hours. There are a number of different models available in the Daytona range from low-key white gold to a flamboyant number encrusted with brilliants. Perhaps the stand-out though is the eye-catching Everose model which has an attractive pinkish hue. Fans of luxury watches and those seeking the adrenalin rush of the race track will find both combined in the Daytona watch from Rolex.
