  • Catalogue Essay

    Launched at the beginning of the millennium, the Cosmograph Daytona ref. 116520 marked an important milestone for Rolex with its first in-house automatic cal. 4130, which replaced the El Primero cal. 4030. With its final batched offered to the market in 2015, it made way for the ref. 116500LN which features a ceramic bezel instead of stainless steel.

    The present example is from circa 2010, featuring the iconic black dial and offered in “new-old-stock” conditions with its factory stickers still intact. One of the most sought-after references by Rolex today, its classic sporty aesthetic with a staggering wrist presence is what makes it a cult favourite. A timeless watch to be worn on any occasion, this is the chance for collectors to acquire this highly coveted timepiece now.

  • 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.
