The definitive tribute to a watchmaker’s love affair with motor racing, the Cosmograph Daytona is an iconic slice of Rolex history. In 1988, Rolex updated early iterations with the introduction of a new, self-winding movement and size increase from 37mm to 40mm. The subsequent reference 116520, launched at Baselworld in 2000, represented Rolex’s first new in-house movement for 50 years, in the form of the Calibre 4130 self-winding chronograph. Also notable was the updated vertical clutch mechanism, delivering an unprecedented level of stop-start timing precision. Cosmographs – particularly those featuring the modern ceramic bezel - have enjoyed increasing market value for decades, making them an ideal vintage watch investment for 2020 and beyond.
