The present Daytona is a modern interpretation of this trend, featuring a blue hardstone dial, precisely: sodalite. It can be considered one of the most well executed and appealing example of hardstone dials Daytona: the blue sodalite perfectly harmonizing with the white gold case. The index configuration changes as well, in respect to the standard model.

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.
