The 2016 Rolex Cosmograph Daytona gets a ceramic bezel, enhanced movement

Rolex has given the Oyster Perpetual Chronograph Daytona a whole new face with a number of additions in mechanics and design. The first things to catch the eye is the ceramic bezel that has given the chronograph a major facelift. While the case still remains waterproof, the case now measures 40 mm. The black bezel takes us back to the 1965 version that came fitted with a black Plexiglas bezel insert. Baselworld 2016 welcomes the new Rolex that looks as good as it is tough. With the promise of being scratch-resistant, the monobloc Cerachrom bezel is just what you’d love to sport on the greens this summer.

To match the rad new looks, the movement sees a major overhaul as well. With a Superlative Chronometer certification (Rolex, 2015), the quality of the movement is now regulated to -2/+2 seconds a day. It leverages the Rolex Parachrom balance spring in place of the silicon balance spring and maintains a 4 Hz caliber.

The steel version of the all new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona is available with a white and black dial. It will cost 11.800 Swiss Francs or $12,177.
