The 50th Anniversary Rolex Cosmograph Daytona is encased in platinum

We’ve spoken about the Platinum Cosmograph Daytona 2013 that bedazzled everyone at BaselWorld. Let’s know more about this watch that is a remake of a 1963 Rolex Cosmograph Daytona. It is commemorating 50 years of this 20th century horology that Rolex created the new Cosmograph Daytona 2013, which for the first time in Daytona’s history has been produced in a 950 platinum case and bracelet. True, the 50th Anniversary Rolex Cosmograph Daytona is the successor to a legend. Still, its most striking feature is its very attractively set dual tone – an ice blue dial contrasting with a chocolate brown paletted monobloc Cerachrom bezel.

The movement in the watch has been kept the same, an automatic in-house 4130 caliber chronograph with a column wheel. With a dimension of 40mm, though all other features of the watch remain the same as the Daytona models of recent years, the key feature is its Cerachrom ceramic bezel with a tachymetric scale, rendering the watch as an ideal instrument to measure average speeds up to 400 miles or kilometers per hour. “The numerals and graduations are perfectly legible thanks to the deposition of a thin layer of platinum via a PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition) process.”

The 50th Anniversary Rolex Cosmograph Daytona will retail at $75,000.
