Rolex Daytona 16528 – Black 6 Inverted Dial – Unpolished – Full Set
ROLEX DAYTONA 16528 ZENITH 18K YELLOW GOLD 6 INVERTED BLACK DIAL – UNPOLISHED – FULL SET
Like all great modern watches, the Rolex Daytona is steeped in history. Unlike most watches though, its history is tied to one particular person, Paul Newman. The famous Hollywood actor and racing driver famously wore a specific variant of the original series Daytona, an exotic dial ref.6239. 6239.
The second series Daytona had its movement supplied by Zenith and subsequently, when the Brand was sold to another company the movement was upgraded by a senior engineer named Charles Vermot and became the Zenith El Primero.
While first series Daytonas are true collector pieces, it would be remiss not to acknowledge the impact the second series Daytona has had on the collection too. Released in 1988 and produced until 2000, the second series Daytona is what gave us the contemporary Daytona aesthetic. With an upgraded 40mm case – up from the previous 37mm, the second series Daytona is almost indistinguishable from the modern third series. Powered by perhaps one of the greatest chronograph movements ever, the Rolex cal. 4030 – a heavily modified El Primero movement, the second series Daytona has the movement to back up its iconic looks.
