  • Catalogue Essay

    Since its introduction in 1963, Rolex’s Cosmograph Daytona has continuously evolved, starting out as a tool watch aiming at motorsports to lavishly gemset versions today. It is amongst the most sought after models for its masculine appeal, classic aesthetics, and exceptional timekeeping.

    In 1988, Rolex released their very first automatic models housing a heavily modified Zenith El-Primero movement.

    The present reference 116528 is part of the second generation Rolex's of automatic Daytona models but upgraded with Rolexes first inhouse chronograph calibre: cal 4130, launched in 2000.

    An incredibly attractive watch with its bold Arabic numerals, cream dial and black subdials, it is in overall excellent condition and is further accompanied by a full set of accessories including an extra white dial.

  • Artist Biography

    Rolex

    Swiss • 1905

    Founded in 1905 England by Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis as Wilsdorf & Davis, it soon became known as the Rolex Watch Company in 1915, moving its headquarters to Geneva in 1919. Like no other company, the success of the wristwatch can be attributed to many of Rolex's innovations that made them one of the most respected and well-known of all luxury brands. These innovations include their famous "Oyster" case — the world's first water resistant and dustproof watch case, invented in 1926 — and their "Perpetual" — the first reliable self-winding movement for wristwatches launched in 1933. They would form the foundation for Rolex's Datejust and Day-Date, respectively introduced in 1945 and 1956, but also importantly for their sports watches, such as the Explorer, Submariner and GMT-Master launched in the mid-1950s.

    One of its most famous models is the Cosmograph Daytona. Launched in 1963, these chronographs are without any doubt amongst the most iconic and coveted of all collectible wristwatches. Other key collectible models include their most complicated vintage watches, including references 8171 and 6062 with triple calendar and moon phase, "Jean Claude Killy" triple date chronograph models and the Submariner, including early "big-crown" models and military-issued variants.
