About This Watch

Following the manually-wound Rolex Daytona lineup that made its debut in the early 1960s, Rolex unveiled the automatic Daytona collection in 1988. Gone were the Valjoux-based hand-wound movements inside of the Rolex Daytona in favor of Zenith El-Primero-based self-winding movements. The affectionately nicknamed 'Zenith Daytona' watches were around for 12 years until Rolex finally introduced a collection of automatic Daytona watches powered by their first in-house chronograph movement.

At first glance, the two generations of the automatic Daytona look the same, both following similar design blueprints. Yet, upon closer inspection, the Daytona dial reveals which movement lies inside the watch - which is practical given that Rolex watches never come with a transparent exhibition caseback. If you're unsure how, read on to learn how to spot a Zenith movement inside a Rolex Daytona by looking at the dial.
