Rolex, Cosmograph Daytona, Ref. 116520

$34,000.00 USD

There is no other watch quite like the Rolex Daytona, which features a striking dial with contrasting colors and iconic case characteristics. This model, 116520, was introduced by the maker in 2000 to replace the 16520 and was discontinued in 2016.
Notably, the 116520 introduced the acclaimed Rolex caliber 4130 to the Daytona family, replacing the caliber 4030 based on Zenith's celebrated El Primero caliber. Since its introduction, the caliber 4130 has been the brand's standard chronograph mechanism, even in the modern ceramic-bezel ref. 116500.
In addition to being a highly sought-after and notoriously difficult-to-obtain Rolex model, the steel Daytona is regarded as a benchmark in the high-end chronograph industry.
This timepiece is in excellent condition and has recently been serviced. It comes with a Rolex presentation box and is backed by Twain Time's 12-month limited warranty.

Kathryn Robbins

Exceptional service! I am so happy with my purchase. Because of the pandemic I had to rely on photos rather than visiting in person. In every way Twain Time exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend them.

Daniel Lee

I just wanted to highlight their commitment to customer service, even during these pandemic times. My entire experience was terrific - from start to finish. They are incredibly knowledgeable and really want to understand what the client wants, never pushing the sale. Regarding the condition of my watch - I was very happy to see that the watch came in impeccable condition, even better than the description on their website. I dealt directly with Ornella and found her very helpful and caring as well. I bought my watch through the phone and she took care of me during the entire process. Highly, highly recommend Twain Time.

Erik Barrios

I came across Twain Time's Instagram account and saw that they were listing a watch I had been looking for. They were very responsive to inquiries and readily provided additional information about the piece (including condition, service history, additional pictures, etc.). When I received the watch, the condition was as good as described and they encouraged me to contact them if there were any issues after the fact. I would happily deal with them again.
