Like any tough racing horse, the pedigree of each Rolex watch can’t be under appreciated and one of them is the Daytona series. The series first appeared in 1960’s and reached the peak of its popularity in the 1980’s. It took awhile for Daytona watches to be considered luxurious by consumers and experts.
