MEET THE COS­MO­GRAPH DAY­TONA

Hong Kong Tatler - - Style Watches -

Made in stain­less steel with a black ce­ramic bezel, the Cos­mo­graph Day­tona is pretty al­lur­ing be­fore you’ve even touched it. The ad­di­tion of an inky black bezel is an im­por­tant up­date as it gives the watch a vin­tage feel, which fits with the old-school rac­ing aes­thetic of the Day­tona. The ce­ramic bezel is also scratch re­sis­tant, which is ideal for the more ad­ven­tur­ous watch lovers. The ad­di­tion of a white dial makes the time even eas­ier to read than on its pre­de­ces­sor, which was oc­ca­sion­ally hard to read in di­rect sun­light.

When it comes to the move­ment, ac­cu­racy has been im­proved to -2/+2 sec­onds per day by the ex­cel­lent 4130 move­ment, a self-wind­ing ma­chine with a col­umn wheel and ver­ti­cal clutch, which also fea­tures the in-house Parachrom Bleu hair­spring. As with all Oys­ter mod­els, the move­ment can’t be seen, as it’s cov­ered by a solid case back. The only down­side of this sleek, pre­cise time­piece is its pop­u­lar­ity. Ev­ery­one wants to get their hands on one, which means wait­ing lists are up to two years long.
