For the Daytona’s 25th anniversary, Rolex surprised the public at the 1988 Basel fair by introducing the first self winding chronograph model in its history.
The newly launched reference 16520 was powered by a derivative of Zenith’s El Primero calibre, substantially modified by Rolex. It was the very first Daytona to be equipped with a sapphire crystal and a new larger diameter of 39mm.
The model was available in steel (ref. 16520), in steel and gold (ref.16523), and the present gold version ref.16528.
The launch of this “New” reference generated an immediate success and elevated the Daytona to its current mythical status.
