Our Opinion

One of the most iconic of all sports watches, the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona and has a special place in the hearts of watch fans and collectors worldwide. Named in honour Florida’s Daytona Beach motor racing scene, the first Rolex Chronographs to have Daytona printed on the dial were manual wind pieces introduced in 1963. These ‘tool’ watches were designed to assist racing drivers by including on the bezel a tachymetric scale allowing drivers to measure their average speeds up to 400 kph.

The Cosmograph Daytona has undergone two further modifications firstly in 1988 and subsequently in 2000. This pristine ‘2nd Generation’ example from circa 1994 sports the famed and desirable ‘Inverted 6’ on the (12hr chronograph) subdial at 6 o’clock. Powered by a derivative of Zenith’s El Primero, the Calibre 4030, this reliable and accurate Hi-Beat movement was modified to reduce the beats per hour from 36000 to 28800 thereby increasing the power reserve and durability.

At 40mm in diameter, the case size is in a perfect sweet spot to cater to the majority of wrist sizes. The stainless-steel body is perfectly complemented with 18k yellow gold detailing on the bezel, screw down chronograph pushers & crown and the central inserts on the oyster bracelet. By utilising a two-tone colour scheme, this watch is sure to wear well whatever the social occasion. Behind the sapphire crystal, the pure white dial is beautifully balanced, not only by the three subdials and elegant gold hands but the punctuation of the dial perimeter with eight clear cut square diamonds factory set in yellow gold.

This is a first-class example of a 16523 Daytona and with desirability for the Zenith powered Daytona pieces ever increasing amongst collectors, values look set to continue to rise in the current buoyant market.
