The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona in platinum, model reference 126506, is a testament to the brand’s enduring legacy of precision, luxury, and innovation. This model, featuring an ice-blue dial complemented by a chestnut brown Cerachrom bezel, is a pinnacle of style and performance.

The ice-blue dial, exclusive to Rolex’s platinum models, presents a serene and sophisticated face. Enhanced with snailed counters and 18 ct gold applique hour markers, the dial’s Chromalight display ensures exceptional legibility under all conditions. The central sweep seconds hand offers precise reading of 1/8 second, complemented by counters that display elapsed time in hours and minutes, making it an indispensable tool for professional drivers to measure track times with unmatched accuracy.

The Cosmograph Daytona’s bezel, moulded with a tachymetric scale, is not just a functional tool for measuring average speeds up to 400 miles or kilometres per hour; it’s also a marvel of durability and aesthetics. Crafted from high-tech ceramic, the bezel is corrosion-resistant, virtually scratchproof, and its colour remains unaffected by UV rays. The scale’s legibility is enhanced by a thin layer of platinum, applied via Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD), making it a perfect blend of form and function.

Crafted from 950 platinum, this Cosmograph Daytona showcases the metal’s silvery whiteness and vibrant luminosity. Among the densest and heaviest metals used in watchmaking, platinum’s exceptional corrosion resistance and malleability make it a challenging material to work with, requiring unparalleled skill. Rolex’s mastery in crafting this noble metal is evident in the watch’s impeccable finish and enduring beauty.

The Oyster bracelet, known for its durability and comfort, combines form and function in a design that has stood the test of time. Introduced in the late 1930s, this metal bracelet with its broad, flat three-piece links is the most universal bracelet in the Oyster collection. The folding Oysterlock safety clasp with Easylink comfort extension link ensures a secure fit, allowing for easy adjustment.

At the heart of the Cosmograph Daytona lies the calibre 4131, a self-winding mechanical chronograph movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. With a power reserve of approximately 72 hours and a Superlative Chronometer certification, this movement guarantees precision of -2/+2 sec/day after casing. The watch’s waterproofness to 100 metres / 330 feet, combined with its robust platinum casing and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, ensures reliability and durability in the most demanding conditions.
