Gents stainless steel & 18ct Gold Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona with slate grey dial
A statement, an investment, a legend – the Rolex Daytona offers more than just a time display. This watch gets its legendary title from the most famous motor racing circuit in the United States: Daytona.
