 that compares the Zenith
 movement Daytona 
vs. in-house movement

Notes:

Rolex Cosmograph was first introduced in early 1960's with hand wound Valjoux movement. This movement was later replaced in 1988 with automatic Zenith's version of El Primero movement which was modified by Rolex (cal. 4030) before placed in the case. In 2001 Rolex introduced the new in-house made movement (cal. 4130) that is currently powering all Rolex Daytona Watches.
