Very little has yet to be said about the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona. The model line, which draws from motorsport and an ill-fated effort to compete with the moon-fairing Omega Speed master, has transcended watch culture to become the unofficial mascot of the watch industry. With waitlists spanning into the years at authorized retailers, Daytona is undoubtedly the most desirable and hardest-to-get Rolex to date.

The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona 116500 presented here is the predecessor to the new Daytona 126500LN that was released in early 2023. Initially released in 2016, the 116500 was by far the most talked-about watch of that year, with high interest at launch. While the Daytona design has always been more evolution rather than revolution, the most striking change to this reference was the use of ceramic bezels for the bezel, as opposed to the stainless steel bezels seen in previous generations.

The Rolex Daytona has been and will always be the unofficial flagship model for Rolex, partly due to its rich history and its association with famous individuals. At 40mm, it's a wearable watch for almost any wrist size, and its design language sits amongst some of the most fabled designs.


This example is in "excellent" pre-owned condition. There are very faint signs of use in the form of hairlines along the case. The case is strong and has no signs of being refinished. During our quality control check, the watch was reported to be functioning within the original manufacturer's guidelines.

This Daytona 116500LN is offered as a full set with all of its accessories, including its warranty, brochures, manuals, and box. It is in full working order.
