The 'Zenith' Daytona takes its name from the movement sitting inside the case, which comes from Zenith and was the world's first automatic chronograph movement. Rolex took this movement and modified it to remove the date function, allowing it to fit in the same cases as the previous manually-wound Daytonas. Today, they are highly collectible and represent a very different time where watchmakers happily shared movements, rather than attempting to do everything in-house.

The watch is in good condition for its age. The case and bracelet is in excellent condition, but there is some wear on the base of the subdials' hands. There are also signs of wear on the hands, and there are some scratches on the 9 o'clock side of the bezel. There is also some very mild stretch on the bracelet.

This Daytona comes with the original inner and outer boxes, chronometer certificate, hang tag, polishing cloth, and original receipts.

ROLEX

Known by many simply as 'the Crown', Rolex has certainly done much to deserve its reputation. From its founding just over a century ago by a German immigrant in the UK, Rolex has grown to become an international behemoth, recognisable (and indeed visible) across the globe.

Compared to other modern watchmakers, Rolex is in the near-unique position where its vintage watches have developed an almost entirely distinct collector base. It's no surprise, however, given the diversity and iconic status of so many Rolex models. The vintage Rolex community has arguably brought vintage watch collecting into the mainstream by shedding light on the beauty of old, worn watches which had so long been ignored by most.
