Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona, www.rolex.com
On the bezel or all the way around the dial, a tachymeter scale is frequently carved. You can determine speed, based on the amount of time spent going a specific distance when it starts at 500 units, which is often around the 7-second mark. A fixed tachymeter bezel is used in conjunction with a chronograph. It is used to convert speed for up to 60-second occurrences to seconds of elapsed time.
