Rasool Khoory & Sons team up with Rolex to showcase Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona

Mohammed Rasool Khoory & Sons Group and Rolex join hands to exhibit the the story behind a legendary watch, the Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona, in a unique exhibition dedicated to the passion for speed and motor sport that inspired the iconic chronograph. The Rolex Daytona exhibition will be on display for the first time in Abu Dhabi exclusively at the Yas Mall from 20 November to 5 December 2016.
Through a series of panels and interactive displays the exhibition retraces the origins and evolution of the Cosmograph Daytona, an evocative watch named after the capital of speed in Florida (USA) and prized by the world’s fastest racing drivers and enthusiasts alike. Visitors will also be able to admire the new Cosmograph Daytona in 904L steel fitted with a monobloc Cerachrom bezel in black ceramic, combining the technical excellence and performance that distinguish Rolex with characteristic aesthetics inspired by the model’s unique heritage.
The Cosmograph Daytona,created in 1963 was born for racing and soon established n extraordinary track record in the world of motor sport thanks to its reliability and performance. Known simply as the “Daytona”, the watch has risen to the rank of an icon, as one of the best known and most coveted chronographs in the world.
For half a century, the Cosmograph Daytona has created its own legend. By the mid-1960s, it had become the winner’s trophy at the 24 Hours of Daytona, a race inaugurated in 1962 and renamed Rolex 24 At Daytona® in 1992. Today, the Rolex Daytona chronograph is still regarded as the highest honor for many of the world’s best endurance racing drivers who compete there each January.
“It’s all about the watch”, said driver Scott Pruett a few days before he and his team triumphed in the 2013 edition – his fifth victory. Today this leading endurance race, which begins the automobile sports season in the United States, is com- monly known by the name of its prestigious trophy: “The Rolex”.
More than 50 years after its creation, the Cosmograph Daytona continues to evolve. Rolex has never changed its approach: striving to design and manufacture a chronograph that best responds to the brand’s quest for perfection. Beyond that, legends tend to escape their creators and live on.
