To commemorate the centenary celebrations of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Rolex presents an original new model of its legendary chronograph.

Rolex launches the new Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona watch as a sincere tribute to the centenary celebration of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Rolex has served as the timekeeper for this event since 2001. In 2023, a special edition watch with a design and movement that has a deep connection with the Le Mans endurance race will pay tribute to this symbolic centenary celebration.

The new watch is made of 18K white gold, with a black Cerachrom ceramic outer ring. The edge of the outer ring is decorated with a thin border also made of 18K white gold. The red ceramic number “100” on the outer ring of the speedometer represents the 100th anniversary of this classic event.

Comparable to extraordinary speed

This classic watch was born in 1963 and was designed to meet the needs of professional drivers. The Cosmograph Daytona is equipped with a tachymeter outer ring and a high-performance mechanical movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. This legendary chronograph becomes an ideal speedometer device, which can read the average speed of a specific distance traveled within a fixed time. speed.

The Cosmograph Daytona has become a legend in the racing world with its reliable and outstanding performance. Sixty years after its launch, the watch still ranks first among sports timepieces.

High-tech ceramics

Rolex has repeatedly pioneered the development of ceramic technology. With its superb technology, it has developed an integrated ceramic outer ring and ceramic word ring. This material is not only scratch-resistant but also less susceptible to environmental influences. The high-tech ceramic word ring is made of special chemicals and is extremely difficult to corrode. After years of painstaking research and development, Rolex has developed a unique set of professional knowledge and innovative equipment and production processes, so it can produce ceramic components completely independently.

The new Cosmograph Daytona features a black Cerachrom ceramic bezel. Except for the number 100 marked in red, the molded scale and numbers on the tachometer are coated with a thin layer of platinum using PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) coating technology.

Oyster case, symbol of water resistance

The 40mm Oyster case of this new Cosmograph Daytona is guaranteed to be water-resistant to 100 meters (330 feet), making it a model of robustness and reliability. The middle case is cast from a solid block of 18K white gold. The watch is equipped with a transparent blue crystal case back with anti-reflective coating. Through the bottom cover, you can appreciate the exquisite decoration of the movement and the rotation of the automatic rotor. Rolex watchmakers use special tools exclusive to the brand to tighten the finely grooved case back to seal the case, so only Rolex watchmakers can access the movement. The three-buckle winding crown has a triple waterproof system. Like the chronograph buttons, they are firmly screwed to the case. The crown shoulder guard is integrated with the middle case to protect the winding crown. The mirror surface is made of anti-reflective blue crystal and is not easily scratched. The watch’s waterproof Oyster case provides the best protection for the movement.

Perpetual movement caliber 4132

The new Cosmograph Daytona is equipped with the 4132 movement. This chronograph movement is completely developed and manufactured by Rolex. It is an upgraded version of the 4131 movement released this spring. This self-winding mechanical movement embodies Rolex’s exquisite technology and has outstanding performance in terms of accuracy, reliability, power reserve and ease of use. The structure of the movement has been greatly improved, greatly simplifying the number of components, making the movement more reliable. The chronograph movement is equipped with a solid column wheel and a vertical chronograph clutch wheel device, which can start the timer instantly to ensure accurate timing. The plywood of the 4132 movement is decorated with Rolex Côtes de Genève, and is dotted with micro-polished pitting between adjacent patterns, creating a unique design that is different from traditional Côtes de Genève.

Caliber 4132 allows the watch’s chronograph functions to be displayed via a 24-hour mechanism, a technical feature that is the first of its kind in a Rolex model. The movement is also equipped with Rolex’s patented Chronergy escapement system, which is efficient and reliable. This escapement is made of nickel-phosphorus alloy and is not affected by high-intensity magnetic fields. The movement is equipped with a blue Parachrom hairspring, made from a unique paramagnetic alloy cast by Rolex. Even if the temperature changes, the hairspring remains very stable and has excellent shock resistance. The hairspring is also equipped with a Rolex final ring to ensure that the movement can still operate regularly in any position. The movement’s hairspring balance assembly is equipped with a high-performance Paraflex cushioning device designed and patented by Rolex to improve the movement’s shock resistance. The automatic rotor is equipped with improved ball bearings.

The 4132 caliber is equipped with a perpetual motion automatic winding system, which uses a perpetual oscillating weight to wind the movement. The structure of the barrel and the excellent efficiency of the escapement system enable the power reserve of the 4132 movement to be approximately 72 hours.

Innovative device

On the new Cosmograph Daytona watch, the chronograph function hours are different from the 12 hours commonly used in this watch, but are displayed on a 24-hour scale – this feature is due to a new patented device in the movement. The device consists of 7 parts and acts like a differential redesigned by Rolex. This gear reduction system, known technically as a planetary reducer, halves the rotational speed of the gear train used to turn the 24-hour hand. Its appearance is very compact and can be easily integrated without any adjustments to the movement structure. It is a strong proof of Rolex’s superior engineering technology. In fact, this device only replaces the transmission wheel and its operation has no impact on the performance of the 4132 movement.

Oyster strap and Oyster safety clasp

The new Cosmograph Daytona comes with an Oyster bracelet. The three-link Oyster strap, launched in the late 1930s, is strong and reliable and is the most popular strap for Oyster Perpetual watches.

The Oyster strap of this new watch is equipped with a folding Oyster safety clasp to prevent the buckle from opening accidentally. The Oyster strap is equipped with an easy-adjustable link extension system developed by Rolex. The wearer can easily extend the strap by about 5 mm. The strap links are equipped with Rolex-designed and patented embedded ceramic components, which are more flexible and durable.

Superior Chronometer Certification

Like all Rolex watches, the Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona also holds the Observatory of Excellence certification established by Rolex in 2015. This unique designation proves that each watch has successfully passed a series of tests in Rolex laboratories. In addition, the movements of these watches are also certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Center (COSC). The watch is tested after it is assembled and the movement is installed in the case to ensure that the watch can perform excellently in terms of accuracy, power reserve, waterproofing and automatic winding when worn. The average error of the Rolex Grand Observatory chronometer is within plus or minus two seconds per day. The accuracy that Rolex pursues is much higher than the standard for Swiss official chronometer certification.

The green seal, a symbol of superior chronometer precision, is included with every Rolex watch and comes with a five-year global guarantee.
