Handsome and Timeless Like No Other: A Review of Rolex Daytona 116523

4 mn read

Through the years, the world of motorsport and horology has enjoyed a strong connection. Well, all thanks to the birth of Rolex’s Daytona line of luxury watches. For racers, it will eternally have an association with NASCAR and land speed records. Meanwhile, for timepiece collectors, it portrays one of the most coveted and priceless chronographs ever created. If you are dreaming of getting your hands on a Rolex Daytona for sale, then the 116523 is worthy of your attention.

Let’s get to know more about this legendary model.

Is the 116523 the Most Undervalued Daytona Model?

Everyone knows that a Rolex Daytona’s desirability and reputation has never been higher. However, while new versions can’t be acquired without stealing, cheating, or lying, certain references are still obtainable on the used luxury watch market. One of these is the 116523.

This reference is considered a bargain in the vintage arena. It is the Rolesor edition of the latest Daytona generation featuring the in-house Rolex calibre. In 2016, the Swiss watchmaker gave it a makeover, ultimately becoming the 116503.

The Aesthetics

A new or used Rolex Daytona 116523 comes with a two-tone colouring, 18K gold, and steel. Therefore, it is said to be the most versatile compared to its gold and steel stable mates. Here’s a fun fact–the Daytona was originally designed as a durable tool for professional racers, rather than just a fashion accessory. What’s great about the Rolesor version is that it is sophisticated enough to be paired with business suits. At the same time, it does not look ostentatious when sported on the wrist of a racecar driver.

Now, let’s talk about the design. The steel 40mm Oyster case comes with a unique Daytona gold bezel. It is also beautifully engraved with a tachymeter scale that enables drivers to gauge speeds of up to 400kph. Cool, isn’t it? The dial, which came in several finishes including mother of pearl, white, and black, features the standard second, 30-minute and 12-hour subdials.

Compared to the previous series, those dials changed position slightly in order to house the all-new 4130 movement. Thus, it tells you at a glance whether you are looking at an upgraded model or a Zenith Daytona.

The Movement

The Swiss company spent five years to perfect their in-house chronograph movement. They even manufactured a standard calibre by which all others are judged. It, later on, paved the way for the launch of the antimagnetic Parachrom hairspring, with up to 10 times greater shock absorption. It was also utilised as an integrated vertical clutch to guarantee the precision starts and stops of the seconds hand, as well as to maintain timekeeping accuracy to within 1/8 seconds.

We are mind-blown of the fact that the Calibre 4130 has only 290 separate parts, which are fewer than other chronometres. This sophisticatedly streamlined movement freed up space inside for a bigger mainspring barrel. And the result? An increased power reserve up to 72 hours.

Customization with Diamonds

Diamond Rolex Daytona is a popular model of Rolex watches. A lot are purchasing Rolex Daytona for investment because of its aesthetic value. Its look is simple enough to complement your elegance. So, if you are the type of person who want to boast wealth without uttering a single word, then Rolex Daytona is a perfect choice to consider.
