Overall Review

Rolex has long been an innovative company with beneficial advancements to make the timepieces the greatest they could be. To mention a few, they involve developing the self-winding wheel to perfection and patent protection of their Easy Link clasps, which extend or compress in 5mm steps to account for changes in temperature.

Regarding complexity and horology, Rolex hasn’t drifted too far from other companies’ paths. They have authentic applications in nearly all circumstances. Hence, the Cosmograph Daytona adheres to an exact idea by emphasizing function and design.

The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona 116519LN is housed in an 18k white gold casing with a polished, black Cerachrom bezel. The black bezel is exceptionally scratch resistant and free from color fading caused by sun exposure. The 18k white gold casing is also solid and well-polished, with brushed and refined finishing center lugs.

The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona comes in a Meteorite dial with black sub-dials. In addition, it has refined White Gold indexes, hour and minute hands with luminous fill, as well as a date display. Index hourly marking featuring white gold rims and bright filling is used. Also, minutes, seconds, and fractions of a second are finely printed.

Furthermore, the watch has a polished 18k White Gold screw-down crown with Rolex’s unique trip lock triple waterproofness tech. This ensures the crown screws down as firmly as a submarine hatch. On the other hand, the casing measures 40mm in diameter and 12.2mm in thickness, with a water-resistant rating of 100m (330ft).

The watch’s main dial is a dark silver steel, with black sub-registers for some of the Chrono functions as well as a tiny second sub-dial. The tiny moving seconds sub-dial is placed at 6 o’clock. The 30-minute clock of the chronograph is situated at 3 o’clock, while the 12-hour counter is positioned at 9 o’clock.

A scratch-resistant sapphire glass guards the dial. In a vivid bluish-green Super Luminova, refined, glowing indicators and illuminated hand style hourly markings provide excellent legibility in poor light situations. The dial extension features a beautifully inscribed minute, seconds, and split-seconds track that runs around the dial’s outer rim.

Technically, this Rolex timepiece, like all Rolex pieces, is powered by an extremely accurate Superlative Chronometer-certified caliber. The Rolex caliber 4130 is a self-winding mechanical movement and beats at 28,800 mph with 72 hours of power reserve. It’s an automated movement featuring Rolex’s blue patented Parachrom hairspring. It provides increased shock resistance and possesses paramagnetic qualities that guard against electromagnetic, the leading magnetic watches’ enemy.

Lastly, a sturdy case back protects the movement as well. The casing also has a trip lock screw-down winding crown for adjusting the time.
