Daytona!!!

I first tried on a Daytona a couple of years ago. It didn’t really do anything for me at the time, but over the last few months I’ve been fighting a growing desire to own one. In the end, I decided that resistance was futile and I’m now delighted to have added one to my collection.

I was initially going to go for an older reference housing the Zenith movement; the reality, though, is that Rolex modified about 50% of the parts to make it their own. The newer Rolex movement is lauded as one of the best chronograph movements ever made, and the sub-dial arrangements (with the running seconds at six) is to my mind preferable. I’ve therefore gone for a 2004 model (barely worn since new), with a black dial.

I really love this watch, and it’ll be getting a lot of wrist time!
