The Cosmograph Daytona, introduced in 1963, was engineered to meet the demands for reliability and precision of racing drivers. In 2002, Rolex created a special edition of this iconic chronograph, nicknamed "beach", as an allusion to the legendary Daytona Beach speed races. The reference 116519 made its debut on the four coloured dials offered for this model which consist of yellow or pink mother-of-pearl, blue turquoise or green chalcedony with roman numerals. Established as a genuine icon in the watchmaking universe, this legendary chronograph remains a mirror of 20th century design through the simplicity and timelessness of its lines, and continues to be an unparalleled source of fascination for connoisseurs of fine horology.
