Rolex is presenting exclusive versions of its Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona, the benchmark for those with a passion for driving and speed.


Rolex is presenting the latest creations brought to life by its unique watchmaking expertise. These timepieces take us from the deepest caves to the highest mountain peaks, from the outer reaches of the solar system to isolated polar regions and from ultra-precise technology to exacting artisanal craftsmanship. They are watches that invite you on an adventure – be it geographical, technical or aesthetic.

New Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona versions feature new meteorite dials, new dials with diamonds as hour markers, and a new Sundust dial on models in 18 ct yellow, white or Everose gold.

All three versions with meteorite dials – a rare natural material from outer space – have black chronograph counters at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock. The version in 18 ct white gold is fitted with a monobloc Cerachrom bezel in black ceramic with a tachymetric scale, and an Oysterflex or Oyster bracelet. The other two watches, one in 18 ct yellow gold on an Oyster or Oysterflex bracelet and the other in 18 ct Everose gold on an Oyster or Oysterflex bracelet, have a metal bezel with a tachymetric scale. A standout visual feature of the Cosmograph Daytona since its launch, the iconic tachymetric scale is moulded into the first watch’s Cerachrom bezel and engraved on the metal bezels of the other two versions.

The new black, diamond-set dial has snailed counters, 18 ct gold applique hour markers and hands with a Chromalight display, a highly-legible luminescent material. The dial is available on models in 18 ct Everose gold on Oyster or Oysterflex bracelet and on 18 ct yellow gold on Oyster or Oysterflex bracelet.

The new Sundust, gloss, sunray finish dials feature black counters for 18 ct Everose gold versions with Oyster or Oysterflex bracelet. Rolex also presented the new sundust, gloss, sunray finish set with 11 baguette-cut diamonds for 18 ct Everose gold versions with Oyster or Oysterflex bracelet. The sunray finish creates delicate light reflections on many dials in the Oyster Perpetual collection. It is obtained using masterful brushing techniques that create grooves running outwards from the centre of the dial. Light is diffused consistently along each engraving, creating a characteristic subtle glow that moves depending on the position of the wrist.


Launched in 1963, the Cosmograph Daytona was designed to meet the needs of professional racing drivers. Fitted with a tachymetric bezel and a high-performance mechanical movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex, this now legendary chronograph is the instrument of choice for measuring time intervals and determining average speeds.

The Cosmograph Daytona is an icon forever joined in name and function to the world of motor sport. More than 50 years after its creation it remains in a class of its own among sport chronographs.

With its origins in the far reaches of the solar system, the material which adorns the dial of these new Cosmograph Daytona watches – metallic meteorite – comes from an asteroid that exploded millions of years ago. On the voyage between planets, fragments of this natural extraterrestrial material, primarily composed of iron and nickel, cool by a few degrees Celsius every million years, creating unique, distinctive crystallization within the material that is impossible to recreate on Earth. Metallic meteorite is rare and challenging to work with, but once it is cut into thin sections and a chemical treatment is applied, the great beauty of its interwoven internal structure is revealed. These fascinating and varied formations are known as Widmanstätten patterns.

For its dials, Rolex works with leading experts and selects only the sections of meteorite with a particularly well-formed surface rich in different shapes and reflections.


Like all Rolex watches, the Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona is covered by the Superlative Chronometer certification redefined by Rolex in 2015. This exclusive designation testifies that every watch leaving the brand’s workshops has successfully undergone a series of tests conducted by Rolex in its own laboratories according to its own criteria. These certification tests apply to the fully assembled watch, after casing the movement, guaranteeing superlative performance on the wrist in terms of precision, power reserve, waterproofness and self-winding. The precision of a Rolex Superlative Chronometer is of the order of −2/+2 seconds per day, or more than twice that required of an official chronometer.

The Superlative Chronometer status is symbolized by the green seal that comes with every Rolex watch and is coupled with an international five-year guarantee.
