Rolex’s new Daytona started its journey in outer space

Words by Rob Chilton

Iconic piece from the 1960s gets a 2021 update

The latest Daytona from Rolex began, not on the sketchpad of a watchmaker in Switzerland, but with an asteroid that exploded millions of years ago in deep space.

Fragments of the asteroid, mostly iron and nickel, gradually cooled as they made their way to Earth, eventually forming into a beautiful and unique crystallisation known as Widmanstätten patterns, that adorn the dial of the 2021 Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona.

Each dial is unique

Forever associated with motorsport and the recording of speed, the 40mm Daytona watch in 18ct white gold has come a long way from its 1963 launch model.

The Daytona is closely linked to motor sport

Dynamic black chronograph counters are positioned at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock, while the distinctive tachymetre scale has been moulded into the bezel made from a high-tech ceramic called Cerachrom. An Oysterflex bracelet completes the look of this watch that is out of this world.
