Today, the Ice Blue Dial Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona Replica Watch is still regarded as the highest honour for the endurance racing drivers, among the best in the world, who compete there each January. The DAYTONA became an unprecedented phenomenon, which has remained un diminished for 25 years. In 2000, the COSMOGRAPH DAYTONA’s peerless reputation was enhanced when Rolex equipped the watch with a new high-performance, self-winding movement entirely designed and manufactured in-house.
Its sporty appearance, as usual for Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona Replica Watch, was the result of functional considerations intended to respond to the wearer’s needs and to make the watch the best instrument for measuring time and speed on the racing track. The COSMOGRAPH DAYTONA is also the Ofﬁcial Timepiece of the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the chronograph worn by Tom Kristensen, a Rolex Testimonee and the only racing driver to have won the prestigious French endurance race eight times.
For half a century, the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Replica Watch has created its own legend. By the mid-1960s, it had become the winner’s trophy at the 24 Hours of Daytona, a race inaugurated in 1962 and renamed Rolex 24 At Daytona in 1992.
Daytona International Speedway inherited one of the most formidable histories of speed and motor racing, and gave its name to the chronograph Rolex dedicated in 1963 to racing drivers and motor sport enthusiasts: the COSMOGRAPH DAYTONA. An innovative chronograph noted for the excellent legibility of its functions thanks to highly contrasting counters and its tachymetric scale, which was no longer on the dial but positioned on the bezel.
Emblematic of Rolex’s watchmaking know-how and technological prowess, the numerous innovations in this movement allow it to distinguish itself, setting new standards for chronographs in terms robustness, reliability and precision.
But like all legends, the worldwide success of the Rolex Daytona Replica Watch has retained its share of mystery. Acclaimed by racing drivers and endowed with a prestigious heritage, the Rolex chronograph was propelled to the rank of an icon after a new, entirely redesigned and self-winding model was introduced in 1988.
