$17,752,500… That was the hammer price on Paul Newmans personal 'Paul Newman' Daytona. Who’d have guessed that when the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona was introduced in 1963 that this rugged chronograph would become the worlds most important investment watch? Each time ultra rare vintage examples like the Albino, Hermes, and Oyster Sotto grab the headlines, prices move again for the classic models. With its highly reliable chronograph functions and bezel with tachymetric scale, the Daytona has become an icon eternally joined with professional racing drivers and the demands of professional racing. The lastest model with its ceramic bezel and in-house calibre 4130 movement is a regular sight on the wrists of former F1 stars like Jackie Stewart and Mark Webber.
