After motoring fans and actor, Paul Newman sported the replica Rolex Cosmograph Daytona upon his wrist, because it gained an almost cult-like status, spawning a dedicated fan base of motor-sport enthusiasts, businessmen, and style-conscious individuals alike.
The history of the racing watch also consists of the pivotal role Omega played with the launch of their well-knownSpeedmaster. Before the Omega Speedmaster became the first watch worn on the surface of the moon, forever cementing its role in space and aviation industries, it was a racing chronograph developed for professional race car drivers to use at the track.
