Rolex enthusiasts have recently had the privilege of discovering a new, anniversary version of the 1963 Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona. It is the first ever Daytona done in platinum. Born from “an obsession with perfection”, the watch boasts a 40 mm Oyster case made of 950 platinum and boasting a brown monobloc Cerachrom bezel with tachymeter scale that can measure speeds of up to 400 mph or km/h.
Powering the luxury timepiece is an in-house self-winding movement, Caliber 4130, with much less components than regular chronographs, resulting in considerablyenhanced accuracy. Perfectly matching the classy design is the ice blue dial with chestnut brown counters.
The bracelet is comfortable and resistant, also made of 950 platinum and featuring a folding Oysterlock safety clasp that was designed to prevent accidental opening. A very nice Rolex touch is the comfort extension link system called Easylink, and which allows the wearer to modify the length of the bracelet by up to 5 mm, thus ensuring uncompromised comfort in various circumstances.
