Baselworld 2016-The New Rolex Daytona Watch

Front of Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Watch 02

Rolex Dayona watch is remarkable, and now it adds a new Daytona at baselworld 2016.

The Daytona gets a new black Cerachrom bezel that’s reminiscent of their 1965 Daytona that had a black plexiglass insert around the crystal. As with all ceramic bezels, this one benefits from certain advantages bestowed on it thanks to the material it’s made of. You can expect a ceramic bezel to be virtually scratch proof on a day to day basis, it’s extremely resistant to corrosion and it’s unaffected by ultraviolet wavelengths. Then again, like all ceramic bezels the biggest risk to the Daytona’s Cerachrom halo is sudden impacts, ceramic shares the same issue as sapphire crystal in that it’s extreme hardness makes it brittle and likely to shatter altogether if the impact is severe enough.

The black dial Daytona gets silver surrounds instead, quite fitting for the watch I think.Front of Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Watch 02The movement inside the rolex replica watches hasn’t changed, it’s still the 4130 automatic self-winding certified chronometer movement which is reliable as ever. The 4130 movement has many high-end features that some top tier watches don’t possess. It makes use of a parachrom blue hairspring which is more resistant to magnetic fields than before. It’s also using a column wheel setup with a vertical clutch system as well, this means that it’s more complex in construction but the system can be more precise, the pushers will feel better to use and also the chronograph can be run all the time without causing damage to the movement. The movement is also good for 72 hours of running time without the chronograph being active as well.Side of Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Watch
