Steve Carell is wearing a platinum 40mm Rolex Cosmograph Daytona


Actor and comedian Steve Carell is wearing a platinum 40mm Rolex Cosmograph Daytona featuring an ice-blue dial and a cherachrom bezel with a tachymetric scale on an oyster bracelet.

Carell’s breakthrough came as the boss of Michael Scott’s TV show ‘The Office,’ and he has received many accolades for his performances in both film and television, including the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Television Series.

About the Watch

In honor of the Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona’s anniversary, Rolex developed a special variation of this legendary racing watch. It came with a priceless 950 platinum casing for the first time.

The Oyster Perpetual, which embodies the ideal driver’s timepiece with spectacular technology and a refined aesthetic, was created to suit the needs of expert racing drivers. It is made with a 40mm platinum casing and an elegant iced blue dial, and it has subdials that let drivers precisely map all the racetrack laps.

The most recent Daytona maintains the original aesthetic code. This includes all essential components that make this piece among the most recognized race chronographs, notwithstanding the use of new content and an intriguing fresh color mixture.

Chestnut brown, an odd compliment to the icy blue dial tint, is the new theme of the monobloc Cerachrom ceramic bezel. 3 lacquer sub-dials were engraved with chestnut brown by the Swiss craftsman to provide great contrast and achieve maximum legibility. The 12-hour clock is located at the 9 o’clock position, with the 30-minute count placed at the 3 o’clock and tiny seconds sub-dial at the 6 o’clock position.

A center Chrono indicator that provides time readings with a precision of 1/8 of a second is present. These Chrono timers offer a wide range of capabilities for racing fans in addition to the tachymeter scale to measure speed up to 400 miles or kilometers an hour. Also, the Chromalight attached markings and indicators ensure exceptional legibility.

The 40 mm diameter Oyster casing, a company trademark, is made of exquisitely refined platinum. The Monobloc inner casing, a screw-down case-back, two push-pieces, as well as a screw-down crown featuring a Triplock waterproofness mechanism make up the unique, incredibly robust structure.

Similar material is used to create an oyster bracelet, which features both refined and polished links for a pleasing contrast. It offers excellent security and comfort in addition to a fashionable and eye-catching appearance. This is because it is fitted with an Easylink comfort expansion link as well as an oysterlock folding clasp.

Furthermore, the newest Cosmograph Daytona timepiece has the same internal Calibre 4130 self-winding automatic Chrono movement as the earlier iterations. This chronograph features a Parachrom hairspring for increased tolerance to changes in temperature and vibrations. Also, it has a significant impact on precision. The movement has a great 72-hour power reserve and oscillates at 28,800 pulses an hour (4 Hz).

Among the most sought-after watches in the world is the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona. For racers competing in endurance races, the classic chronograph serves as the best timing device. The Cosmograph Daytona has become one of the most alluring options throughout time for both collectors and watch lovers.
