Paul Newman’s Favourite Rolex—the Daytona—Just Got a Style Upgrade

Everything old is new again, at least that’s what they say in the world of fashion, so it’s not surprising that the Rolex Daytona (a classic piece debuted by the luxury brand in ’63 and a fave of actor Paul Newman) is back on the market, and better than ever!

Featuring a new bezel with Cerachrom, a ceramic part that uses physical vapour deposition to give the numerals a platinum finish, plus two dial colour options (white with black accents or black with silver accents) the refreshed Daytona is a true beauty.DaytonaRolex2The racer’s watch also comes powered by Rolex’s 4130 automatic chronograph movement, which is now more accurate than ever with +2/-2 seconds per day – over and above what’s necessary for COSC certification.

And with vintage Daytona watches selling for as much as $100,000, the refreshed piece’s price tag of $12,400 is a total steal. No wonder the waitlist is five years long!
