Rolex decided to launch the Zenith series of Daytonas in 1988. Taking advantage of the increased size of the case from 37 to 40 mm, these models came equipped with the legendary 4030 caliber with Zenith El Primero ebauche. The present Daytona is a reference 16 520 which means that its case and bracelet are entirely made in stainless steel. Preserved in almost NOS conditions, this specimen left the Rolex manufacture in 1999 and impresses for the quality of its case and rare black dial. Moreover, this Daytona is even more special for the presence of the rare and always appreciated Khanjar logo. Emblazoned on Oman’s white, red, and green flag it is the national emblem: the Khanjar has been used in Oman since at least the 3rd millennium BCE, and even in the distant past, they appear to have fulfilled a ceremonial as well as practical purpose. It has become known in the recent years for being depicted on special watches directly commissioned by the Sultan of Oman, His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said al Said. Now deeply located into the history of the legendary Rolex brand this insight is absolutely rare to find and they became even more unique if embellished with the Khanjar logo.
