Sporty charm with the Rolex Daytona

The Rolex Daytona is today one of the most popular Rolex models worldwide. And there are reasons for that. The model is known for its iconic design, precision movement and close ties to motorsport. And that also explains its name.

In 1963, Rolex introduced the Rolex Cosmograph. And although the name Daytona was not yet on the dial, this watch is considered the first real Rolex Daytona. One enthusiast who appreciated the design of the Daytona was motorsports legend and actor Paul Newman. Newman often wore his Daytona and was regularly photographed wearing this famous watch. His own Daytona reference 6239 sold at auction for a whopping $17.800.000.

The story behind the Rolex Daytona

The Rolex Daytona has a fascinating history dating back to the 1960s, when it was introduced as a chronograph watch for professional racing drivers. The name “Daytona” is derived from the legendary Daytona International Speedway race track in Florida, where Rolex became an official timekeeper.

Over the years, the Daytona has become an icon of the watch world, appreciated for its sporty elegance and technical excellence. The watch features a tachymeter scale on the bezel, allowing drivers to measure speed and distance during races.
