Catalogue Note

The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona is now produced entirely in-house, but that wasn't always the case. Before the brand developed the calibre 4130, it outsourced the Daytona movement from Zenith. The reference 16520 is among the last of the Daytonas to run on a Zenith El Primero movement and is a highly sought-after collector's item. This particular example is distinguished from its peers by the aged tropical subsidiaries, making this watch unique in its own right and has been retained in very crisp and original condition.
