Our Opinion

Offered here is a beautiful example of the Rolex Daytona in 18k Yellow Gold reference 116528 manufactured circa 2011.
This example, whilst excellent in condition, to begin with, is differentiated even further still by a small yet significant detail on the dial. Nicknamed the 'APH' dial for a small spacing error in the word COSMOGR ‘APH’ and only appearing in a small serial range, these have become highly sought after by Rolex collectors.

As all Rolex collectors know the most iconic vintage Rolex Daytona’s incorporated movements sourced from other suppliers, the Reference 116520/8 not only marked the first in-house automatic chronograph movement for the Daytona but the first in-house chronograph movement ever produced solely by Rolex. Visually the base model 116520 is virtually identical to its predecessor, the so-called “Zenith Daytona” models from the 1990s. This extended the life cycle of the style, which later evolved to the current ceramic “C-Daytona” models currently being offered.

The Rolex Daytona 116528 is the all-gold variation of the 6-digit Cosmograph Daytona. This stunning example was produced circa 2011 and boasts an 18k yellow gold finish, a 40mm Oyster case with polished lugs, a three-link Oyster bracelet with polished centre links, and a sophisticated white dial topped with luminous baton hour markers and hands. The dial also displays the chronograph registers in yellow gold as well as the Daytona logo in striking red font. As a traditional Rolex chronograph, the Daytona also boasts a 400-kilometer Tachymeter bezel and side pushers, giving this used Rolex exceptional sports watch style.

The overall condition of this ‘APH Dial Daytona’ is excellent. The case does not show any signs of over-polishing, with the lugs all being symmetrical along with the top brushed finishes remaining well defined. The dial is in superb condition with no flaws, the lume is clear/sharp and consistent in colour to the dial hour markers and hands. The bezels 18k Yellow Gold counting ring is in excellent condition, with no dings or scratches along with the engraving for the black writing and numbers being very clear and sharp.
The watch comes on the correct reference bracelet that is in very good condition and shows only minimal stretch and wear.
This stunning 18k Yellow Gold Daytona is accompanied with all its original Rolex accessories that include a box, manuals, hang tags, cardholder and guarantee dated April 2011.
