The Pursuit of Excellence
This year marks the 60th anniversary of the legendary Rolex Daytona. Introduced in 1963, the Rolex Cosmograph was initially designed for racing enthusiasts. Shortly thereafter, the name evolved to reference the most prestigious race in NASCAR — The Daytona International Speedway. We now refer to this style as the "Cosmograph Daytona" or just simply the "Daytona."
In addition to the Daytona, Rolex is celebrating the 70th anniversary of the Rolex Submariner this year. The Submariner was added to Rolex's expansive collection as a water-resistant style made for divers.
Left Our uber rare 18kt Gold Cartier Paris Jumbo Tank comes with a bubble back to house the automatic self-winding movement, a stunning White Dial, crisp Roman Numerals, a Blue Sapphire Crown and Metallic Blue Hands. The jumbo size and automatic movement is a holy grail for an all original Tank Classic. Circa 1970.
Middle In the ‘70s, Rolex produced a very limited Day Date collection with hand-mixed colored enamels known as “Stella Dials." Ours has an Authentic Blue Factory Stella Dial and Diamond Markers. Circa 1980.
