Our Opinion

In recent years, if one watch has captured the imagination of collectors and enthusiasts alike it is surely the Rolex Daytona. Vintage Daytona’s have enjoyed a surge in value especially since the 2017 auction of the ‘Paul Newman’ for $17.8m.

It was first introduced in 1963 in honour of Daytona’s famed beach racing scene. Refreshed in 1988, Rolex introduced a new model powered by a derivative of the Zenith El Primero chronograph movement designated ‘Calibre 4030’. A number of modifications included reducing the beats per hour to 28800 from 36000 – to lengthen the time in between servicing and increase the power reserve.

Presented stainless steel, this stunning example of a 2nd Edition reference 16520 is from the year 2000. Behind the sapphire crystal, it has a jet black baton dial with the 3 additional subdials finished in a beautifully contrasting pale gold. Luminova filled batons encircle the perimeter of the main dial, save for the 12 o’clock position reserved for a gold Rolex crown. The elegant pale gold hour and minute hands also have Luminova applied. At the 6 o’clock position sits the 12 hr chronograph subdial with ‘Daytona’ in red curved over the top.

At 40mm width and just over 12mm height, it sits comfortably on most wrists secured by oyster bracelet featuring a deployant clasp with Flip-Lock safety clasp for extra security.

Not only highly collectable, they are robust, reliable and serve as useful sports timing watches. Alongside the 12hr chronograph, the Daytona’s primary sports function is for timing speed via the inclusion of a Tachymeter into the bezel, perfect even if your average speed hits 400mph.

Given that 2nd Edition pieces actually ceased production in 2000 when Rolex began using an in house movement, examples such as this are likely to increase in rarity and value.
