The first Rolex Cosmograph to bear the name "Daytona" appeared in 1964, representing Rolex's sponsorship of Daytona racing. Decades later, the Daytona has come to represent the fast-paced world of professional racing. A true chronograph with stopwatch functions, the Rolex Daytona is accompanied by standard seconds, minutes, and hour subdials as well as an engraved Tachymeter bezel. The reference 16520 that is offered here today was released in 1988 and utilizes a Zenith "El Primero" calibre 4030 self-winding movement. Modified by Rolex to include a new escapement and larger free sprung balance, a reduction to 28,800 BPH, and the removal of a date function, the calibre 4030 will perform to Rolex's highest standards. The reference 16520 also introduced the addition of a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and a larger 40mm Oyster case size to the Daytona line. The reference 16520 that is offered here today is an exceptional find, with all-steel Daytonas becoming increasingly difficult to procure.
