    The Swiss Watch Co UK Ltd presents this stunning Rolex Cosmograph Daytona ‘Zenith’ for sale.

    Born out of the early 1930’s sports watches worn by Sir Malcom Campbell, Rolex has long been associated with motor racing and speed. In 1963 Rolex removed the telemeter scale and moved the tachymeter onto the bezel for increased dial legibility and introduced the world to the term ‘Cosmograph’. But it was not until 1965 that the term ‘Daytona’ was used on the model, which came about as Rolex was the official timepiece of the racetrack.

    This version the reference 16520 was first produced in 1988, the 165xx series ran until 2000 and came in a larger 40mm stainless steel Oyster case compared to the previous versions 37mm. It features a fixed steel units per hour bezel and a clean white dial with the luminous hour markers with gold edging and steel/black hands. The chronograph sub-dials are white but edged in black indicating that the watch is powered by the modified Zenith El Primero movement known as the calibre 4030. It also has steel screw-down pushers and a matching steel triple-lock crown. It comes on a matching stainless steel Oyster link bracelet with a folding clasp with safety catch.

    Originally purchased in circa 1999/2000 and in mint condition, this Daytona comes with its original outer & inner boxes, instruction booklet, seal, swing tag, calendar card, leather card holder and former sales receipt. It was previously serviced by Rolex in May 2015 and comes with that service card/booklet.

    This is a serious collectors piece as the ‘Zenith’ Daytona’s were not made for long and have since become very collectable and valuable.
