Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Ref. 116523


Pre-Owned, Rolex 40mm Cosmograph Daytona, Steel Dial, Oyster Bracelet, Ref. 116523

The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona is one of the world’s most recognizable watches. While the addition of 18K gold lends this watch a luxurious touch, it is still a robust tool watch equipped with a resilient Oyster case, a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and the Rolex Triplock screw-down crown. Rolex released the Daytona reference 116523 in 2000 as part of the new-generation that was powered with their new in-house Caliber 4130 automatic movement. Prior to that year, Daytona watches ran on caliber 4030, which was a modified Zenith El Primero automatic movement. As with every Daytona, the watch includes a chronograph that is operated by the pushers next to the crown.

Rolex is recognized throughout the world not only as a brand associated with luxury, but as a watch that is both luxurious and precise.  For Rolex, this hard-won and well-deserved recognition was never in doubt.  The founder, Hans Wilsdorf named the company Rolex so as to be pronounceable in any language, as he anticipated the acclaim his company would receive due to its relentless pursuit of precision and accuracy.  Soon after its founding, Rolex produced the first wristwatch to receive the Swiss Certificate of Chronometric Precision, which was rapidly followed by a certificate of precision from the Kew Observatory in Great Britain.  From those roots Rolex built a legacy of innovation.  The Oyster watch was the first waterproof and dustproof wristwatch, followed by the first self-winding Perpetual rotor.  Building once again on innovation, the Datejust became the first self-winding wrist chronometer to include a date in a window on the dial.  Adventurous women and men who strive to achieve what was never before been achieved have chosen Rolex for their expedition, which both perpetuates the brand’s claim to precision and dependability as well as attests to its veracity.  Hans Wilsdorf may have anticipated the acclaim Rolex would someday achieve, but even he might have been impressed its success.
