Rolex is the type of watch brand that everyone loves and covets, because it makes watches for all types of people, from businessmen to fashion addicts, or from watch collectors to athletes. The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona is the type of sports watch that athletes love, and it has been one of their main preferences in matters of timepieces since it was first launched, in the beginning of the 1960s. It was and still is mostly preferred by racing drivers because it was resistant and precise. This line of watches from Rolex is actually legendary, and it has a complex history. This is the type of watch that any man would like to watch. If you are searching for the best gifts for fathers day, you should definitely consider this watch for your father as this is the type of gift that he will value forever.
To begin with, the first line of Rolex Cosmograph Daytona watches had a four-digit reference number, and it became so popular that it was soon short in supply, so a second line was launched, with a Zenith modified movement. Today, watches from the first line are highly valuable and collectible, and they are sometimes called Daytona Paul Newman because the American actor had received such a watch from his wife in 1972 when he started being interested in racing. Reportedly, he wore this watch until he died, in 2008.
The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona is obviously a mechanical, self-winding chronograph with Oyster case, which makes it waterproof and shock-resistant. The chronograph mechanism and the bezel with tachymetric scale allowed racecar drivers to measure the elapsed circuit time accurately, and to calculate their average speed. Another special aspect of this chronograph is that it is the 4130 chronograph caliber movement that is only made from 290 components, much less than usual movements. This simplicity, but its reserve of 72 hours too, makes it a unique and powerful watch that never fails you.
Like other Rolex watches, the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona is fitted with the blue Parachrom hairspring that is made from an alloy that is insensitive to magnetic fields and shocks. The watches from this line feature an Oysterlock safety clasp with Easylink comfort extension link, so the bracelet can be adjusted to any wrist. Some of them are entirely made of yellow, Everose or white gold, and others are made from combinations of steel and yellow or white gold. When matched with a deep blue dial, a yellow gold watch is a truly remarkable sight. Other models feature leather straps instead of metal bracelets, which make them look more classical and elegant, but still fit to be worn daily.
Rolex watches are appreciated by all men. They represent the best gifts for fathers day, but they can also work as anniversary gifts. Whether you are buying this watch for your father, your partner or for yourself, this is definitely a great way to show your love and appreciation.
