Rolex Daytona Arabic Numerals
Most people who drive beautiful cars probably don’t know an awful lot about the engineering that goes into their production. They see a Porsche 911, a Bentley or an Aston Martin and think “I would love to own one of those”. But then you ask, which 911 would you like? a 964, a 993 or indeed a water cooled 968 or one of the many variations of these models. Would you like a Bentley Continental GT, GTC, Mulsanne or Flying Spur and would many prospective purchasers be aware of the differences between the models. For those that are true lovers of the marques the devil is in the detail. So it is with the Steel Daytona Ref 116520.
To say you possess a steel Daytona is to say you know your watches. To one of the uninitiated it looks like any other Daytona but since making its debut in 2000 the reference 116520 has doubled in price mainly because of the exclusivity of the model resulting from the long waiting lists, whether self imposed by Rolex or otherwise. The Calibre 4130 automatic movement which powers this timepiece is notoriously difficult and expensive to produce which may be one of the drivers toward its rarity and price tag.
The stunning “Steel Daytona” which Pride & Pinion are proud to offer is in mint condition with a white 40mm dial displaying Arabic numerals and features an unmarked Sapphire Glass lens. The watch comes as watch only and is priced at a very reasonable 14,000 GBP. This watch is a must for those watch lovers who yearn to possess a luxury sports watch of distinction.
