Rolex 116520 SLTSTK 40mm Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona Automatic

With its state-of-the-art technology, evocative heritage and sporting aura, the Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona swiftly became an iconic watch. Its dial carries in red letters the name “Daytona” – the most famous motor racing circuit in the United States.

Typical to its variants, this Yellow Rolesor beauty is presented in a masculine sized case that measures 40 mm in diameter, and is slim enough at approximately 13 mm for a watch of its class. Its stationaty bezel that is engraved with tachymetric scale, is fully made of 18K yellow gold, while its two-tone gold-steel Oyster bracelet that comfortably fasten with a folding Oysterlock safety clasp with Easylink 5 mm comfort extension link, has a width that is smoothly tapers from 20 to 18 mm. The watch has a solid caseback, and as seen in the picture, its logoed Screwdown Triplock crown as well as the pushers alongside that all are made of 18K gold, are fluted to make them easier to use. Anyway, in case you didn't know yet, Yellow Rolesor is a name that was registered back in 1933, designates for the harmonious combination of 18 ct gold and steel on a single watch.

Speaking of the timekeeping performance and functionality, this Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona houses the C.O.S.C. certified Chronometer Calibre Rolex 4130, a Swiss made mechanical self-winding automatic 44 jewels movements that offers remarkable accuracy, highly reliable, and capable to provides around 3 days of power reserve under full wind. This precise caliber functionality offerings are hour, minute, small seconds at six, and chronograph with central seconds, 12 hour, and 30 minute registers. These functions are handsomely displayed through its attractive, semi metalic slate sunray dial that features SuperLuminova coated silver tone hands and hour markers which can be easily read even in the dark. For an improved visibility, the slightly raised sapphire crystal that covers the dial is enhanced with anti-reflective coating.

Anyway, this Rolex 116523 SLTSTK has an original manufacturer suggested retail price of $16,900.00. This version of Daytona is not a new release so that it is quite possible to get it at the fraction of its initial pricing. Still, knowing how good this popular line fare in the competition, one or maybe two grands lower would already be a great bargain for it.
