Watches for the Rolex 24 - The 24 Hours of Daytona

The Rolex 24 (24 Hours of Daytona) race is scheduled to run January 30th and 31st, 2016 at the famed Daytona International Speedway.  The race is a thrilling test of endurance for both driver and car.

When you think of watches for the 24 hours of Daytona, the first one that springs to mind is the famed Rolex Daytona Cosmograph.  The Daytona really is synonymous with racing.  But, it's not a watch that everyone can afford.

If you want to achieve the same look, you should check out the Invicta Men's Speedway watch on Amazon. It's a quartz watch that offers a style that was obviously inspired by the famed Rolex.  However, it's offered at a price that almost anyone can afford.
