Movement is the outstanding Rolex automatic winding Caliber 4130. Rolex designed and built this caliber as the best chronograph movement that could be manufactured. They concentrated on technical excellence (long lubrication life, long service intervals and minimizing friction), timekeeping excellence (C.O.S.C. Certified Chronometer) and serviceability (the watchmakers can service and/or repair the caliber easily).
Speed and Motorsports
Launched in 1963, the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona is closely linked to speed and motorsports. Its automatic chronograph movement allows short periods of elapsed time to be measured to within 1⁄8th of a second, and the tachymetric scale on the bezel enables the instant reading of speed over a given distance. Adopted by race car drivers for its performance, reliability and exceptional readability, this prestigious chronograph carries in red letters on its dial the name “Daytona” – the most famous race track in the United States.
