Catalogue Note

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, as well as the alternating coloration patterns.

Though widely available at the time, these dials were produced in smaller numbers and are rarer to find on watches today.

Caliber 727 is illustrated in Carlo Pergola, Stefano Mazzariol & Giovanni Dosso, Rolex Daytona: A Legend Is Born, 2006, p. 122–125.
