The Cosmograph Daytona 116520 was awarded 68 out of 100 by Watch Observer, with the news source noting a number of features which make this timepiece appealing.

First, the rich design elements usually associated with Rolex is instantly seen with this new model, where "the quality of the case and the dial's realisation is excellent, but unadorned", according to the reviewer.

A 4130 movement which has been applied to the product was also applauded, with the critic claiming it adds reliability to the timepiece, as well as an "easy-to-handle" product.

Consumers may also be swayed into making a purchase of the new Cosmograph Daytona with features like a 40-millimetre diameter case, a water resistance of 100 metres – for practicality – and a steel strap, for added elegance.

Recently, the company revealed the Explorer timepiece, which could also make a great Xmas gift, thanks to the combination of a sharp black dial, rich chrome and luminous hands and markers, Hodinkee reported.
