    With the advent of the new millennium, Rolex decided to release a new version of their iconic Daytona chronograph. Introduced at the Basel fair in year 2000, the case had been redesigned with new glossy lugs and was manufactured with a bracelet with solid links. The chronograph was assembled with the new movement caliber 4130, which lead the sub-register for running seconds to move from 9 to 6 o'clock.
    From a technical point of view, the new caliber maintains the COSC certification, has 44 rubies, a four-arms monometallic balance wheel made in Glucydur, micrometric "microstar" regulation featuring four elements screwed onto the balance wheel's ring, 28,000 alternations per hour, kif shock- absorbing device.
