ROLEX COSMOGRAPH DAYTONA 2014

ROLEX COSMOGRAPH DAYTONA 2014

The Cosmograph was part of a long Rolex tradition in chronographs. The first chronograph equipped with a waterproof Oyster case appeared in 1939. The Cosmograph Daytona was robust, waterproof and featured a tachymetric scale on the bezel for calculating average speed.

Rolex presents a new jewelled version of the Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona that combines the nobility of 950 platinum and the radiance of purest – quality diamonds. This luxury timepiece is equipped with calibre 4130, a self-winding mechanical chronograph movement with a column wheel entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. Like all Rolex Perpetual movements, the 4130 is a certified Swiss chronometer, a designation reserved for high-precision watches that have successfully passed the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute tests.

The Cosmograph Daytona’s 40 mm Oyster case guaranteed waterproof to a depth of 100 metres (330 feet). The dial is entirely paved with 437 diamonds, apart from the ice blue chronograph counters and the resplendent bezel is set with 36 baguette-cut diamonds.

It’s time to buy a new watch – it’s time for Rolex!
