Rolex Daytona 116520 DLC-PVDStyle #: 116520dlc
The Rolex Daytona commemorates the brand’s long association with the Daytona International Speedway, where the Rolex watch became the official timepiece of Daytona in 1962. It is designed for racing, with its oversize tachymeter scale and a contrasting colored seconds scale making it instantly recognizable and a must-have for racers needing to measure elapsed time.
The precision of the Daytona’s timekeeping is ensured with its in-house movement, the Caliber 4130, which was added to the Daytona series in 2000. The Caliber 4130 contains a reduced number of components for superior accuracy and is self-winding, which leaves room for a 72-hour spring. Kif shock absorbers ensure accuracy and balance for the escape wheel.
The chronograph measures elapsed time and calculates average speed up to 400 units per hour, and it can measure elapsed time in hours, minutes, and seconds. The wearer can quickly start, stop, or reset the chronograph with a one-press pusher located on the vertical rather than clutch. A satisfying, clear click indicates the pusher has been activated. When not in use, the pusher screws in like the other crowns. With its legible numbers, the iconic monobloc bezel is corrosion-resistant and scratch-proof. The color is UV-resistant to prevent fading, making it a durable timepiece for racers.
The Rolex Daytona 116520 DLC-PVD has a special Oysterlock bracelet for security and durability. At the same time, the Diamond Lock Coating (DLC) on the stainless steel casing creates a distinguished timepiece sure to impress even the most discerning watch aficionado. The bracelet is classic, timeless, and comfortable, with equal parts form and function.
