More about Daytona 116518 18K Yellow Gold / Tahitian MOP Dial

This is an 18K yellow gold Rolex Cosmograph Daytona 116518. It has a leather strap and a matching 18k yellow gold deployant buckle, and a scratch resistant sapphire crystal. The 40mm diameter solid three-body case, downturned lugs, solid screwed down case back, round chronograph buttons and winding crown are polished/brushed. The Rolex patented Triplock winding crown with the triple waterproofing system is protected by the crown guard. Tachymeter scale graduations are engraved on the fixed bezel measuring up to 400 units per hour. The dial is black Tahitian mother-of-pearl with applied gold Roman numeral hour index markers, gold baton hands, a center chronograph hand, and an outer minute scale. The three subsidiary dials have distinctive gold rims. There is a small seconds subsidiary dial at 9 o'clock, and 12-hour and 30-minute registers respectively at 9 and 3 o'clock. The chronograph is accurate to within 1/8 second, with stop seconds for precise time setting. This is a superlative chronometer with the COSC certificate from the Control Officiel Suisse des Chronometres testing institute, indicating it has endured the 15-day examination. It's water resistant to 100 meters/330 feet, and the 12mm thick case, dial, and movement are all signed. This Rolex Cosmograph Daytona 116518 has a mechanical automatic self-winding Rolex caliber 4030 movement. It's rhodium-plated, with oeil-de-perdrix embellishment, and it's constructed with 31 jewels, a straight-line lever escapement, a shock absorber mechanism, and a monometallic balance adjusted to 6 positions. It includes a self-compensating free sprung Breguet balance spring, 289 components, and Microstella regulating screws. The oscillator has the patented Rolex paramagnetic blue Parachrom hairspring, with bidirectional self-winding via the perpetual rotor that was invented by Rolex in 1931, consisting of a half-moon shaped oscillating weight that pivots freely in both directions on its axle, utilizing the energy of the natural wrist movement. The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona 116518 was introduced in 2000. The legendary Cosmograph Daytona was first introduced in 1963 – a professional quality instrument for endurance racing drivers with the tachometric scale for measuring average speed on the bezel. The cluster of triple sub dials was reminiscent of the dashboard of a Ferrari.

Testimonials

I have been dealing with European Watch Company for over ten years, and have purchased several wrist watches, including IWC, Patek Philippe, Rolex, and Jaeger-LeCoultre. They were not only fairly priced but arrived in like-new condition, fully warranted by European Watch Company. This company has an attentive, knowledgeable staff, a large inventory, and is a genuine pleasure to deal with.

Just completed my 7th transaction with EWC and for the 7th time the transaction was smooth, flawless and quick. Joshua is quick to respond to any e-mails and answer any questions. Ashley knows how to complete the necessary paperwork to avoid any delays at Customs as I am located in Canada and all paperwork needs to be completed perfectly which she is an expert at. You only want to deal with the best and the team at EWC is the best. There is a Yiddish word to describe the people at EWC and that word is mensches which translates to people of integrity and honour.

After a lengthy search I located the Patek Philippe I desired at EWC, but the decision to make a high dollar purchase over the internet was a difficult one. Through numerous emails with Justin and looking at reviews of EWC I made the decision to proceed and I am now ECSTATIC. The watch is exactly as described and pictured. It was perfectly packaged and shipped FedEx overnight. My watch collection now includes the watch I have been seeking for over a year.In summary, you can deal with the EWC staff with confidence. They are professional, honest and you will receive a quality watch which will put a smile on your face.

I live in San Francisco but the EWC website is the first place I check once I get an impulse for a particular watch. EWC's website is cozy and feels like home. I enjoy the photos, presentation, description and historical notes of each item and really like their next day delivery, so I stay loyal to them. Sometimes I must wait awhile for a watch to become available but can usually find anything I want. Then there are the watches you never knew you wanted until you see them here.

Dear EWC, I have just completed my very first purchase with your company: a mint Lange Datograph. Robert was extremely help throughout the process with the item delivered nicely packed to my Hong Kong address within days. The condition of the watch was absolutely mint as described and has exceeded my expectations, even under a loupe! I will be a return customer in no time. Well done!
