about the watch

The Rolex Daytona is a legendary timepiece that holds a special place in the world of horology. Its rich history and high collectible value make it one of the most sought-after watches on the market. With a variety of combinations available, this specific piece sports a black dial with yellow subdials combined with the red second hand, which earned it the nickname the “Paul Newman”, as a wink to the vintage models. This specific piece was sold in August 2021, and is in like new condition. The black dial has a matt finishing, which reduces the light reflections. The black ceramic bezel attenuates the bling of yellow gold from the case. Both previously mentioned points make this watch an easily wearable watch, being surprisingly not as ostentatious as it appears on pictures. The combination of black dial, yellow gold and gold subdials is perfectly enhanced with the red hand and minute track. The latters breaks the monotony of the dial, bringing character to the dial and, by extension, the watch. The Daytona on Oysterflex is one of the most comfortable watches to wear on a daily basis. The latter is designed to perfectly fit the wrist, meaning this watch does not move an inch when well worn. The watch is sold with its full set.

The watch is like new, so both the bracelet and case are in immaculate condition.

The watch is sold with its original box and warranty card.

The movement is a caliber 4130, which runs perfectly well.
