Watch details

The history of the Rolex brand includes many merits and accolades, however perhaps none more illustrious than Rolex’s sponsorship of the race at the Daytona International Speedway. This black dial steel Daytona, a highly-coveted model even without the addition of this piece’s unique origin, was presented by Rolex to one of the drivers or crew members of the winning team at the 2014 “Rolex 24 at Daytona”.   This rare commemorative is in excellent original condition and is accompanied by the original special presentation box that is unique to the watches Rolex offers to the winners of this storied event. The watch would be at home with the most sophisticated of vintage Rolex collections and represents the true spirit of the Rolex brand. 40mm. Stock 37872

Birth of a Horological Icon Timepiece  The myth around the iconic Rolex Daytona has spread around the world recent years. Always has the Daytona model been attached to motor racing, at first Rolex called their new Cosmograph the “Le Mans” and little later to “Daytona” when Rolex started to sponsor the well known U.S. speedway.
Cosmograph: a name that was to be the forerunner of great fortune. Actually, the choice of the name proved to be neither easy nor expected. Whilst Rolex on the one hand flirted with the car-racing world, on the other hand it could not remain unaware of the vast media attention, which at that time was surrounding the conquest of outer space.
