The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona is the ultimate tool watch for those with a passion for driving and speed.
Introduced in 1963, the Cosmograph Daytona was designed to meet the demands of professional racing drivers. It is an icon forever joined in name and function to the high-performance world of motor sport. More than 50 years after its creation, the Cosmograph Daytona remains in a class of its own among sport chronographs and continues to transcend time.
The reference 116500 might just be single the most noteworthy update to occur to Rolex’s famous chronograph wristwatch since it first received an in-house movement more than twenty years ago. Ref. 116500LN is the first steel Daytona model to feature a ceramic bezel, and although it represents the least expensive model in the Rolex Daytona collection (at least when purchased at retail), it is arguably the single most desirable modern Rolex watch in existence and one that is virtually impossible to buy from an authorized retailer without spending a minimum of several years on a waiting list.
