I love my white dial and would never part with it but it would be nice one day to perhaps complement my white dial with a black dial.

Perhaps dress one down with leather strap and keep the other on the bracelet.

A dual ceramic Daytona combination would be killer to have in the collection :)

You think that putting the Daytona on a leather strap would be dressing it down? I personally feel the opposite...

I guess depends on the strap?

I had an omega without screw down pushers, and after about 10 years one of pushers fell out. I have a feeling the screw downs are not for water proofness but for overall integrity if used roughly.

As far as I know, the screw down is for waterproofness

Nice review. Thanks for sharing.
I concur fully with the con on having to unscrew the pushers..... it is a pain every time I have to use the Chrono feature on mine. It hampers a bit on the practical side.

While everyone seems to love the ceramic bezel, I prefer the older style metal bezel. I may be the only person who feels that on the Daytona the ceramic feels out of place to me.

Beautiful watch.

+1 on the older style metallic bezelon the Daytona .

Ceramic is nice on the sub...... maybe even on the GMT..... but the Daytona .... I donít think so !

I prefer the ceramic over the steel. I found the steel was scratch magnet

thanks. for SS sport model the daytona does wear small and is actually smaller than its 40mm described case size. I think it measures a tad over 39mm.

It's only overpriced if you pay more than MSRP otherwise I would say the watch is underpriced at MSRP

per rolex's website, "The Daytona's chronograph functions are activated by pushers that screw down like the winding crown when they are not in use, guaranteeing waterproofness to 100 metres"

I think it does serve a dual purpose though, as any good chronograph should have pushers that avoid accidental engagement. That is why the Speedmasters pushers are so hard to push.

One other thing that I love about the daytona is the crisp mechanical action of the 4130 movement. For example, when you first engage the chronograph, the action and sound is different than when you hit the top pusher again to pause the time.

Beautiful watch and nice review! I am waiting for my 116500 to arrive and hope to receive it by beginning of April. Meanwhile, I bought the big brother in order to make the waiting sweeter.

Would you say the ceramic Daytona bezel is as reflective as something like the SMPc? I sold one of these for being too shiny.
