The perfect balance between sportiness and luxuriousness, the Rolex Daytona became an instant classic. First introduced in 1963 it has become one of the worlds most loved and recognizable watches.
In 1988 Rolex introduced the first Automatic Daytona, the model 16520 in steel and 16528 in yellow gold. This new generation of Daytona housed the Zenith El Primero Calibre 4030.
The Zenith Daytona has developed into one of the most highly sought after and collectable Rolex of the modern era. It is one of the last models to have several different dial and bezel variations, as well as using an externally sourced movement.
