At fifty years old, it has never been weathered; half a century after its launch, it is still as popular as ever: yes, it is the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona. There has been no radical change in any form. On the contrary, on the 50th Day, Rolex injected new vitality into it with a platinum case and ice-blue dial.

The anniversary celebration is low-key because Daytona has never stopped evolving for fifty years. As the name suggests, the development history of this watch is inseparable from speed and passion. The Daytona was launched in 1963, wearing track stripes. Never has a watch been so closely associated with a particular sport, except for the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms, which is widely regarded as the first military diver. Surface.

Reflecting the value of Rolex

The Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona perfectly exemplifies Rolex’s brand values. Rolex employs more than 9,000 people at its Geneva headquarters, Biel production factory, and subsidiaries worldwide. Understated, yet omnipresent. To truly understand the ethos of this independent brand, one needs to read between the lines, including that extraordinary timepiece creation – the Cosmograph Daytona. Objectively speaking, we can praise its performance, precision, legibility, durability, and reliability. In terms of design, the Cosmograph Daytona is entirely in line with the attitude of the watchmaking company, with an annual output of 800,000 pieces. It is timeless and elegant and has become a symbol of the wearer’s prestige. This is the Midas touch of Rolex, using a single watch to interpret the entire brand.

Cosmograph Daytona, 1988

Florida created its reputation before it became the name of Rolex’s most iconic watch model. Daytona’s famous long straight beach has become a legendary place for setting land speed records since 1903, and the subsequent construction of the highway was just the icing on the cake. In 1963, Rolex launched a new generation of timepieces for racing drivers – the Cosmograph Daytona. The light-colored dial is decorated with a black chronograph ring (or a black dial is decorated with a light-colored chronograph ring). The sharp contrast between the central and chronograph dial makes this new timepiece stand out. The tachymeter scale used to calculate the average speed over a given distance has also been moved from the dial’s outer ring to the bezel. Since then, the Cosmograph Daytona design has gone through many changes. The 1965 Daytona had two changes compared to the first generation: first, a twist-lock button replaced the pump button; second, the outer ring of the speedometer was made of black resin glass with white scales.

incremental change

Around 1965, the “Daytona” logo appeared on certain dials. The watch was initially sold exclusively in the U.S. market. It is said that this was a request of Rolex’s American branch to highlight the cooperation between the brand and the Daytona International Circuit and to close the connection between watch products and motorsports. Later, this feature gradually expanded to all dials, with the red arc-shaped “Daytona” wording transferred above the sub-dial at 6 o’clock.

Even during the quartz revolution of the 1960s and 1970s, Rolex remained loyal to mechanical watchmaking, especially the Cosmograph Daytona. In 1988, the brand equipped it with an automatic movement (this high-quality chronograph movement was already commercially available), but at the same time, Rolex made many modifications and replaced half of the original parts to comply with existing specifications.

The result is the 4030 movement:

  • Variable inertia balance wheel
  • Fine-tuning screws
  • Breguet hairspring
  • The self-winding component of the perpetual oscillating weight was invented by the brand in 1931

The changes have gone beyond the movement: the Oyster case has been expanded from 36 mm to 40 mm, a crown shoulder guard has been added, and the metal tachymeter scale has become wider (the scale unit has increased to 400).

More innovation

In 2000, Rolex introduced a completely independently designed and manufactured self-winding chronograph movement—4130. To start the timing, abandon the horizontal cross-linking device and use the vertical cross-linking device. Rolex engineers simplified the minute and hour counter systems and integrated them into a single module, thus reducing the number of parts in the timing mechanism by 60%.

This innovation saves space, facilitates the assembly of a larger mainspring, and increases the power reserve from 50 to 72 hours. The modern Cosmograph Daytona movement is also equipped with a Parachrom hairspring, which Rolex entirely developed, manufactured, and patented. 

In 2012, Rolex expanded its watch factory in Biel further. Shortly, the world’s largest watchmaking brand (by turnover) will launch more innovations. Rolex will not abandon its flagship product; naturally, it will not stop there.
