Preowned Rolex Daytona 18ct Yellow Gold 'Paul Newman' Dial 116518
Rolex Daytona 18ct Yellow Gold 'Paul Newman' Dial 116518
Although no official association exists between the Rolex Daytona and the film star & avid amatuer racing enthusiast Paul Newman, this edition from the classic Rolex Cosmograph Daytona collection has become commonly known as the ‘Paul Newman Dial’.
The reference to the late great actor comes about because of the similarity between this modern, automatic self winding version of the earlier manual mechanical movement Daytona worn by Paul Newman himself which was distinctive because of the contrasting colours of the sub dials. Here we see the excellent contrast delivered between the Gold subdials and the black dial, perfectly encapsulated in the 18ct yellow gold case & gold bezel with engraved black tachymetric scale supported by the chronograph function. The dial is completed with white baton hour markers housed in 18ct gold with a red seconds hand and red minute scale giving the watch a true racing feel.
In perfect symmetry to the dial the watch is set on a black leather strap with a gold folding Oysterlock safety clasp ensuring this watch sits perfectly on your wrist everytime. The watch comes packaged in original Rolex inner and outer boxes with original Rolex warranty card
