comments An absolutely stunning and collectible daytona. They have become very rare to find, a great addition to any collection. This Fantastic and rare Cosmograph is in super conditions with one of the rarest dial variations known, the “Very Flat” dial, the three subdials don’t have the typical concentric circles and there is basically no “step” between them and the rest of the dial’s surface. A similar example is published on Pucci Papaleo’s “Ultimate Rolex Daytona” book, pages 476-479.

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.
