Rolex developed Daytona with the needs of professional racecar drivers. A love of speed and racing inspired it. The Daytona watch has been a cultural symbol in motorsport since its introduction in 1963. The Daytona is highly precise and mechanically trustworthy, particularly at maximum speeds, thanks to a few additional performance features.
For instance, compared to conventional chronographs, its structure and style combine fewer components, boosting the movement’s accuracy while saving space. Other functional and design aspects of the Rolex Daytona (โร เล็ก ซ์ เด โท น่า, which is the term in Thai) include its oversized bezel with an exceptionally clear tachymeter scale, the precise start and stop operations, a seconds hand that runs smoothly, a 72-hour power reserve, and the ability to run for extended periods without losing accuracy.
The Best Racing Instrument:
The Rolex Daytona is one of Rolex’s more intricate timepieces and has several practical applications. Its distinctive dial with three more compact subdials gives it a unique appearance. The watch’s Cosmograph, comprised of these three subdials, is a quicker and easier method to convey that it is a certified Rolex or self-winding wristwatch. The Daytona is the best timepiece for drivers who love racing with its three subdials and two pushers. It enables drivers to gauge passing time using the seconds, minutes, and hours displayed on the dial.
Setting A Daytona’s Timer:
Position 0: The casing must be completely free from screw into the crown and the pushers along either side of the crest.
Position 1: Crank the height of the watch by twisting the winding crown in a clockwise direction when unscrewed. A minimum of 25 spins are required for partial winding when the first time wearing the watch or when it requires reset after having stopped.
Position 2: When the head is unscrewed and pulled to the first notch position from the case, it is in this position. Twist the crown to set the correct time when it is in this state.
How Should I Wear My Rolex Daytona?
- Turn the pushers counterclockwise to release them.
- Be sure that the clock’s second hand is at a stop. You can manually stop it if it hasn’t already by pushing the higher pusher at 2 o’clock, which is above the head.
- Press the bottom pusher at 4 o’clock (below the crown) to return the second hand and counters on the Rolex to zero.
- When the timing feature is activated, press the upper pusher button to stop it.
- To view the passing seconds precisely, consider the middle chronograph subdial.
- For an exact evaluation of the passing time in minutes, consider the counter/subdial at three o’clock.
- For an exact evaluation of the amount of time that has passed in hours, look at the counter/subdial at nine o’clock.
- Turn the pushers clockwise before firmly set inside the casing to screw them back down.
- Ensure never to remove the pusher button at the bottom when the clock is working or running. Some think doing so could potentially harm the watch’s internal movement.
