The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona is the ultimate wristwatch for speed enthusiasts and one of the pure classics within the Rolex-Portfolio. Shortly after it’s introduction in 1963 it became an Icon. Designed as precise tool, it allows to measure elapsed time, which is displayed in hours, minutes and seconds on the dial. The tachymetric scale on the bezel guarantees reading precision, which makes it the the ideal instrument for measuring speeds up to 400 units per hour. The pushers activate the Chronograph function.
Reference 16520 was introduced in 1987 with the famous El Primero movement provided by Zenith.

This beautiful Zenith Daytona underwent a full service at Rolex in April 2019
