The 2016 Cosmograph Daytona is in line with the 2015 Daytona. The dial of the Daytona remains unchanged apart from the sub dial registers. On the white lacquered dial version they are now a black colour with white markings, which makes them more legible. It is also reminiscent of the previous 16520 model which had coloured sub dials for the white dial. Watchbazar likes the scratch resistant Cerachrom bezel, replacing the previous stainless steel bezel.
The new Cosmograph Daytona is available on a solid-link Oyster bracelet in 904L steel, with an Oysterlock safety clasp that prevents accidental opening. It features the ingenious Rolex‑patented Easylink rapid extension system that allows the wearer to easily increase the bracelet length by approximately 5 mm, for additional comfort in any circumstance.
The fluted case back is hermetically screwed down with a special tool that allows only Rolex watchmakers to access the movement. The winding crown – fitted with the Triplock triple waterproofness system – as well as the chronograph pushers screw down securely against the case. Its crown guard is an integral part of the middle case. The crystal is made of virtually scratchproof sapphire.
