Watch details

A great example of this “grail” watch, such condition has become exceedingly difficult to find. The beautifully-preserved original dial, original bracelet, original hands and original bezel leave little to be desired- this is a handsome, honest watch noted specifically for the brightness of the colors retained on the dial. While we are not selling this watch as unpolished, the case could only be described as mint. 37mm This watch is not accompanied by any accessories. Stock 44634

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.
