The Paul Newman Daytona
Vintage models of the Rolex Daytona are extremely popular. They are often more expensive compared to their modern cousins. One of these vintage watches is with a brilliant story: the Paul Newman Daytona.
The main feature of this Paul Newman Rolex Daytona is the multicolor exotic dial with a contrasting minute track on its dial. The subdials are also unique with art-deco numerals. Because these watches were slow sellers, Rolex produced them in limited quantities. The story about these Paul Newman watches is that Paul Newman, a former race driver, was wearing a Daytona every day until his death. If you are on the market for a Paul Newman Rolex Daytona, bring at least €150.000 with you to purchase a piece.
One of the most expensive Rolex watches of all times, was the Paul Newman Daytona given by his wife Joanne Woodward. This particular watch sold at an auction for 17.75 million Dollars.
Before the Daytona was produced, there are some ‘pre-Daytona’s’ available which are highly sought after by enthusiasts. It was named the Cosmograph in the early 1950s and are limited. Prices for the stainless-steel models vary between €40.000 and €50.000.
Get your hands on a Daytona
Just like the case with the other models in the collection from Rolex, it is really hard to buy one from your local authorized dealer. You might get lucky when you can buy a Submariner, GMT-Master or a Datejust. If you want to get your hands on a Rolex Daytona, we advise you to look on Wristler for the desired model. The in-house caliber used in the Daytona is the 4130 with a 72-hour power reserve, and the design is so recognizable. Enthusiasts and collectors are always on the lookout for these Daytona’s as they seem to rise in price every month. Most prices of these watches increased over 100% in the past three years.
If you’re a lover of vintage watches, take a look at the 4-digit reference numbers for the Rolex Daytona as they are the first to be produced back in the day, around 1963. The newer models from the Rolex collection use a five- or six-digit reference number. And you can probably guess that when it’s called the RBOW, it has something to do with a rainbow.
