The Rolex Daytona perhaps is the most-desired, most revered watch in history. Its roots in motorsports are etched into the dial and bezel of the watch as well as our collective psyche. The very name Daytona evokes images of courageous men, seeped in gasoline, oil, and exhaust, striving for slight edges of advantage in engine efficiency and output, chassis weight and construction, tire composition, and racing strategy. At Daytona, before there was the modern corporate-sponsored big business of racing, there were cars setting land speed records on the beach. There were motorcycles proving their worth. There were heroes made. And there was an endurance race that Rolex decided to start sponsoring, called the 24 Hours at Daytona, a leg of the Triple Crown of Endurance Racing. 

When Paul Newman strapped his Daytona on his wrist in 1972, it is said that he did not ever take it off until his death in 2008. The watch is nearly universal in its appeal, so demand has increased year after year. The Daytona has gone through periods when it was in such short supply for the demand that even current models routinely sold for an amount far in excess of the retail price. Now, vintage models command many times their original purchase price, with one steel model selling in May 2015 for a record-setting $1.4 million. 

Fans enjoy the solid mechanics of the model, but they also love the aesthetics: the fixed, tachymetric bezel, the subdials, pushers, brushed and polished bracelet, and solid-feeling clasp. This is one watch that can truly be everything, and can be worn with everything in every situation. The Daytona makes anyone look like a rugged-yet-refined CEO-adventurer.
