Pre-Owned Rolex Daytona

Originally released in 1963 to commemorate the first anniversary of the “25 Hours of Daytona” endurance race, the Rolex Daytona has remained one of the most coveted models in the watchmaking house’s lineup. The Rolex Daytona was specifically designed for motorsports racers and enthusiasts, with features that offer precision timekeeping, such as the extra-large tachymeter scale to measure speed and distance. 

At Luxury of Watches, we stock a vast selection of pre-owned Rolex Daytona watches, including classic reference numbers, such as the Daytona 116520, widely considered the height of Daytona innovation because it was the first model to feature Rolex’s in-house caliber 4130. The movement has 44 ruby jewels, and the balance wheel oscillates at 28,800 VPH, giving the timepiece an impressive 72-hour power reserve. 

The dial of the Daytona is easily readable despite the huge amount of information it conveys. It features the tachymeter indices on the bezel, a 30-minute counter at the 3 o’clock position, and a small seconds counter at 9 o’clock. True to its original purpose as a racer’s watch, the timepiece is fitted with a KIF Parachoc shock-protection system and an anti-magnetic Parachrom hairspring, giving this watch rugged durability that belies its elegant facade. 

The standard Cosmograph Daytona is highly sought-after by collectors. Their high demand means they significantly appreciate, making a pre-owned Rolex Daytona an excellent investment piece.
