Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Stainless-Steel Watch Review
Description
The Daytona is a beauty that is not delicate; the stainless steel designed into an attractive watch will not easily show signs of wear and tear. It's COSC-certified and has a water resistance of 100 meters to boot, definitely worth grabbing-that is, if you can tolerate the long wait.

For Rolex fans, part of the thrill in getting a Rolex Cosmograph Daytona, or simply the Daytona, is the anticipation. See, even though Rolex updates the model every now and then, they were almost always in limited edition, especially the ones in stainless steel. It could take years before you could even feel one on your hands because of delays in delivery and the long roster of waitlisted clients.  Inevitably, part of the process is the head-scratching, heart-dropping moments when you just couldn’t catch a break in getting one.

Release date: 1963

Despite the limit of stainless steel Daytonas per model, the pursuit continues because of its timeless appeal and the mere power of the watch itself. For many of Rolex’s years as a watchmaker, its sole chronograph was the Daytona, and it was also among the most complicated it ever made. It is also a Rolex-that association already means a lot, knowing that the brand name itself is enough to draw enthusiasts.

Pros

The Daytona stainless steel fulfills the promise of a luxurious experience; the timepiece’s exterior is elegant, and Rolex devoted extra time in polishing every corner of the Daytona, some of which are harder to take notice of than the others. It will take plenty of beating before the beauty of this watch fades, mainly because of the oystersteel material, a superalloy that can resist harsh elements and erosion, down right to the simplest of scratches. Its COSC-certified, self-winding movement has been given the added amp in the Parachrom balance spring that makes magnetic fields irrelevant to the metal. The Daytona, despite being a racing-inspired watch, is also unmatched by most in its water resistance of 100 meters.

Cons

The Daytona is way expensive than most watches that have the same primary features, save for the 100-meter water resistance. If you’re not too insistent on buying yourself this Rolex, then there are options that are still high end but won’t break the bank as much as the Daytona would. The aesthetically pleasing dial has a drawback, too, in that it lacks an anti-reflective coating, which will cause gleams of light and slightly decreased readability.
