In the nineties, Rolex had started working on a new, entirely in-house developed movement – the Calibre 4130 – incorporating just 290 components, far fewer than a standard chronograph, making it much easier to service. Beating at 28,800 A/h like its predecessor, the new movement increased the power reserve from 54 to 72 hours and introduced a stop-seconds function together with Rolex own’s spiral balance-spring.
The new Rolex Daytona Cosmograph collection, housing the Calibre 4130, was finally launched during the Baselworld exhibition in the month of March 2000. All the new models of the new 116500 series had a diameter of 40 mm and were slightly thinner of the previous versions.
The adoption of the new Calibre 4130 resulted in some dial changes. In particular, the small seconds counter was moved at 6 o’clock inverting its position with the chronograph hour counter. The subdials at 3 and 9 o’clock were moved slightly up. Larger hands and hour markers improved readability, especially in the dark.
The bracelet and the clasp were also improved by introducing a much more solid construction while maintaining the Flip-Lock safety clasp first used in 1994. The new clasp introduced an Easy Link hidden inside the clasp, useful to quickly adjust the size of the bracelet.
This exquisite chronograph was delivered new to its first and only owner on September 2005 via the Rolex authorized store Mayors of Miami, FL and has been part of a private collection ever since, worn sparingly. The case and bracelet displays minimal wear and the crystal is free of any scratches. The sale of this Rolex is accompanied by its original box, outer sleeve, all papers and booklets as supplied by the manufacturer.
