Previously, we talked about the origin of the Daytona watch, and more focused on the Daytona track and racers. In this article, we will appreciate the main development nodes of the Daytona watch and feel the characteristics of this classic watch. brilliant.
Some say that the Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona is the perfect Replica Rolex chronograph: efficient and precise, legible, robust, waterproof and comfortable to wear, this watch has won unprecedented success and World-renowned.
In the nearly 60 years since its inception in 1963, the Daytona watch has been washed over time and continuously improved. The rust-engraved text on the watch surface is the best proof: from the original only called cosmograph watch, With the evolution, it has been named “OYSTER (Oyster)”, “PERPETUAL (Perpetual)”, “COSMOGRAPH (Cosmograph)”, “DAYTONA (Daytona)” and “SUPERLATIVE CHRONOMETER OFFICIALLY CERTIFIED (official certification)” The words “Top Observatory Chronometer)” record the continuous development of this watch.
The dial of the first-generation Replica Rolex Cosmograph uses strong contrasting colors to create an eye-catching visual perception. The light-colored dial is matched with black, or the black dial is matched with light-colored. Rolex has established the series of watches from the first generation. Style features.
With the introduction of many new models, the series has become more and more abundant. One of the dials called “Paul Newman” is very famous, because the famous American movie star and racing driver Paul Newman often wears Daytona watches with this dial. The dial is designed to allow the wearer to read the time clearly in the tough racing environment, where the embossed seconds scale around the dial and the three chronograph counters are all in the same contrasting color, which is very striking.
In 1965, the Cosmograph was further evolved, replacing the original pump pusher with a screw-down chronograph pusher, a change that protected the pusher from accidental pressing and prevented water from penetrating the case. The rust-engraved “OYSTER (Oyster)” word is to highlight the strong waterproof performance.
The “DAYTONA (Daytona)” arranged in an arc above the 6 o’clock position on the watch surface is to highlight the connection between Rolex as the designated timepiece of the conference and the Daytona International Raceway in Florida, and to highlight this watch. The close relationship between the model and the racing world.
In 1988, Rolex improved the mechanical movement. It chose a commercially available self-winding chronograph movement and made significant modifications, that is, the 4030 movement was born.
Entering the millennium, Replica Rolex introduced a reinterpretation of the Cosmograph Daytona. This watch is equipped with the 4130 self-winding chronograph movement entirely designed and manufactured by Rolex, which is also more reliable thanks to a 60% reduction in the number of parts.
It is worth mentioning that the 4130 movement is also the first Rolex movement to have the name rusted on the automatic rotor, echoing the red arc DAYTONA on the dial. Unlike previous models, this new Daytona has no new words on the dial, but that doesn’t hide the watch’s outstanding performance.
In 2016, Rolex re-interpreted, creating a smooth and shiny high-tech black ceramic Cerachrom outer ring, replacing the original metal outer ring. The new bezel has a number of technical advantages: not only is it exceptionally hard against scratches and corrosion, but it also does not fade when exposed to UV light. In addition, the design of the watch has also been changed, with numerals and triangular marks engraved on the edge of the outer ring.
End note: From the design for racing drivers to the fact that celebrities in the political, economic, and artistic circles like to wear Daytona watches, this upsurge has not yet subsided. And the story about Rolex Daytona will continue to be interpreted..
