If you are into motorsports you are likely aware of the infamous Indianapolis 500 race. This infamous race is a top level of American Championship Car racing lovingly known as the “Indy Car Racing”. For decades Rolex has been affiliated with a number of car racing events and serves as a sponsor to many race teams. In fact, Rolex even designed a watch with a race car driver in mind.

Rolex Cosmograph Daytona watches feature an instrument cluster inspired dial with a fully functional chronograph and a tachymeter bezel that is used to measure speed or units per hour. The most famous and coveted Rolex Daytona watches are vintage Daytonas known as “Paul Newman”.

Rolex Cosmograph “Paul Newman” Daytona received its nickname as a tribute to Paul Newman, a racecar driver, philanthropist, and actor with a lifelong dedication to Rolex Daytona watches. The name “Paul Newman” isn’t an official Rolex nomenclature for Rolex Daytona but rather an affectionate term used by the collectors, auctioneers, and watch enthusiasts to differentiate vintage Daytona watches produced between 1961 and 1987.

Another stunning watch that is designed for those on the go is a Rolex GMT. Initially created for Pan Am pilots, this watch has the ability to keep track of up to three time zones. The watch comes in a variety of bezel color combination for you to choose from: red and black, red and blue, and brown and gold. Some models of a Rolex GMT are available with diamond and gemstone accents. In fact the most expensive watch ever created by Rolex was a Rolex GMT which was covered with diamonds.
