The Daytona is arguably the most iconic timepiece ever released. Designed for the high-stakes world of motor racing and named after the race circuit in Florida that hosts the Rolex twenty-four hour race, it wasn’t the first tachymeter-equipped watch but it has certainly has been the most successful by far. It’s three subdial layout is instantly recognisable, as is that engraved bezel whilst the dial, unburdened by a date window, is clear and easy to read.
The tachymeter offers quick speed calculations, while the shape is instantly recognisable and supremely comfortable. Its smaller size and smart design makes it a versatile watch capable of working well with both casual jeans and a formal suit.
