Our pick of the bunch and our favourite ever Rolex Daytona has to be the classic 116520. The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona 116520was released in 2000 and available with either black or white dials. The 116520 was the first Daytona to feature an in house movement. The 116520 is powered in the 4130 automatic movement with chronograph function and 72hour power reserve. The 116520 was only available in stainless steel. The bezel, case and bracelet are identical on both the white and black dial versions. Early versions of the Rolex Daytona 116520 were fitted with what have become know as "thin hands" and these models command a premium on the used and second hand watch market. Throughout the 16 year lifespan of the Rolex Daytona 116520, minor changes and upgrades were made to the dials and bracelet.
ROLEX DAYTONA MOVEMENT
The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona 116520 was the first Daytona to be fitted with an in house movement. The 116520 is powered by the Rolex calibre 4130. Prior to 2000 the Rolex Daytona was fitted with the heavily modified El Primero movement which Rolex called the 4030. The 4130 was the result of five years of innovation, refinement, and technical improvement. The 4130 movement features only 201 separate components, a 60% reduction when compared to the El Primero 4030 caliber. In addition to the 4130 being a more reliable and refined movement, the power reserve increased from 50 to 72 hours.
HISTORY OF THE ROLEX COSMOGRAPH DAYTONA
The Rolex Cosmograph ref 6239 was released by Rolex in 1963 and was original called the Le Mans. It wasn't until 1965 that Rolex named the watch the Daytona. Early version of the Rolex Daytona were fitted with push-in chronograph buttons before being fitted with water-proof screw in pushers in 1965 with the reference 6240. In October 2017 an "exotic dial" Rolex Daytona Cosmograph 6239 owned and worn by Paul Newman, with the engraving "DRIVE CAREFULLY ME" sold at auction for just under $18 million USD. In 1988 Rolex introduced the first self-winding Daytona using the Zenith El Primero movement. This movement was slightly modified by Rolex and renamed the 4030. In 2000 Rolex released a Daytona with an in-house movement. The Rolex Daytona 116520 used the Rolex calibre 4130 automatic movement with 72 hour power reserve. Rolex released the most recent incarnation of the Rolex Daytona in 2016 with the 116500. This model retained the calibre 4130 automatic movement but featured for the first time a Cerachrom bezel in black ceramic. The 116500 is available with either black or white dials.
