Description

Beginning in the late 1960s, Rolex offered special dials, known as 'exotic' dials, on their Cosmograph Daytona models. Years later, watches with these dials became known as 'Paul Newman' models, as the actor is presumed to have worn one in the 1969 auto racing film 'Winning'. The 'Paul Newman' dial is characterized by square markers in the chronograph scale and subsidiary dials and the alternating patterning of the coloration.

Though widely available at the time, these dials were produced in smaller numbers and are rarer to find on watches today. The present lot is particularly rare as most Daytonas were made in stainless steel.
