Rolex Daytona Yellow Gold Paul Newman Dial 116508
Introduced to an expectant public in 1963, the Daytona was Rolex’s first foray into the world of racing watches. Aimed at racing drivers, this highly technical piece features three sub-dials which allow the wearer to measure time intervals as they speed around the circuit – but the Daytona is just as comfortable off the track, with an effortlessly chic look which is sure to add a touch of class to your look, whether at a formal or informal occasion.
This unworn 116508 model boasts a bespoke dial created in conjunction with Hollywood icon Paul Newman, who was a huge fan of the Daytona. Much like the man himself, the 116508 is famed for its masculinity, with a ruggedly handsome 40mm yellow gold case housing a superb black dial with three useful sub-dials and baton markers. A yellow gold bezel and matching Oysterlink bracelet complete the 116508’s look, while this superb timepiece also features an automatic movement, water resistance to a depth of up to 100m and even comes with original box, papers and manufacturer’s warranty.
