Rolex has released three new versions of its classic Cosmograph Daytona in 18ct yellow, white or Everose gold. Now, while one can’t really go wrong with any Rolex, what Brogue particularly admires about these latest editions is each is fitted with the brand’s innovative Oysterflex bracelet – a metal blade overmoulded with high-performance black elastomer. The effect is a blend of technology and sleek aesthetics and is both striking and fittingly sporty. All are also finished with a monobloc Cerachrom bezel in black ceramic, which is corrosion resistant, scratchproof and the colour is unaffected by UV rays. First created back in 1963, Rolex’s Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona established a track record in motor sport and became known simply as the “Daytona”. Waterproof to a depth of 100 metres, inside the Cosmograph Daytona is Rolex’s calibre 4130, a self-winding mechanical chronograph movement developed and manufactured in-house. The oscillator, at the heart of the watch, has a patented blue Parachrom hairspring which is insensitive to magnetic fields and temperature variations and is up to 10 times more precise than a traditional hairspring. The power reserve is approximately 72 hours, so you can leave it for a full weekend without needing to reset the time, should you desired to (though Brogue can’t think why you would).
