We are absolutely delighted to be offering this truly excellent example of the highly coveted Rolex Paul Newman Daytona 6239 manufactured circa 1967.

If you were to ask any vintage watch collector “What is your Holy Grail Watch” the vast majority would not hesitate to answer, “The Rolex Paul Newman With the Exotic Dial”.

It is considered the most important watch and dial configuration in the world of vintage collecting, especially in vintage Rolex collecting. This is one of the most prestigious and valuable watches ever produced by Rolex.

The Rolex Daytona exotic dial received its nick-name after the famed actor and race car driver was gifted a Rolex Daytona 6239 by his wife Joanne Woodward who had the case back lovingly engraved “DRIVE CAREFULLY-ME”. Newman was seen and photographed wearing the watch regularly over next decade as he competed in high profile races, including a 2nd place finish in the 24 Hours LeMans.

In October 2017 Paul Newman’s actual watch was auctioned by Phillips Auction House in NYC and achieved $17.75M making it the most expensive and iconic wristwatch ever sold.

Here at Xupes we really appreciate the vintage Cosmograph range due to their level of dial contrasts, which is something the more modern range of Rolex Daytonas seem to have lost with their respective dials.

The overall condition of this vintage Daytona is mint. The case with its non-screw down pump pushers does not show any signs of over polishing or detailing, with all the lugs being equally strong and the top edges of the brushed finish well defined. the serial number 159---- and model number 6239 are crisp and clear along with the inside of the case back being correctly stamped 6239. It has also been engraved 3 times recording that it has been professionally serviced over the years. The exotic dial is in terrific condition with no apparent flaws, the tritium lume is still present and consistent in colour to the dial hour markers and hands. The bezel’s stainless-steel unit measuring ring is in excellent condition, with no dings or scratches along with the engraving for the black writing and numbers still very clear.

The watch comes on its correct reference 7205 riveted bracelet with 57 end links that are all in exceptional condition. The bracelet is stamped 1/69 advising it was manufactured in January 1969 – this also indicates that its most probably the original bracelet that came with the watch, the bracelet is showing only minor stretch and wear.

The watch is accompanied by its period correct Rolex box and sales literature.

We have shown this watch to our trusted and recognised leading authorities and knowledgeable collectors in the Rolex vintage community. They have all commented on the outstanding condition of our example, with 2 of them going so far as to state that in their opinion, it is overall the best Paul Newman Exotic Dial that they have ever reviewed and handled.
