The movement is in working condition at the time of cataloguing. The chronograph function is working properly. The bezel with minor signs of wear. The case with surface wear particularly at the lower pusher and at 10 o'clock. The case back with little wear and a small pinhead ding at 2 o'clock. Otherwise the watch is in excellent overall condition. The bracelet with little wear. Upon the previous owner's request, the watch has been sent for polishing to remove the mirror finishing and granting the watch an elegant and subtle matte finish.


Please note that the movement has not been tested for the accuracy of time and may need a service at the buyer's expense. Sotheby's does not guarantee the future working of the movement and we do not guarantee the authenticity of any individual component parts since subsequent repairs and restoration work may have resulted in the replacement of original parts.

Furthermore, the watch may not come with its original manufacturers strap or band.

The Rolex Daytona family of watches has over the years become synonymous with motor racing and with the Rolex brand itself. Being the only traditional chronograph manufactured by the brand for over half a century, the Daytona of today as a model has branched out into many configurations to appeal to all collectors, with different material, dial and strap combinations. The present watch is encased in full Everose gold, Rolex’s proprietary rose gold blend that is claimed to never change colour over time like other rose gold blends. With a matching gold bracelet and rose gold detailing on the dial, this watch does not lack in impact on the wrist and is a statement piece perfect for dressy or casual attire.


It is interesting to note that the previous owner of the watch requested it be modified, so the present watch features a fully brush finished case and bracelet with no polished surfaces to be seen. This gives the watch an altogether sportier feel on the wrist, and as a result also shows less signs of wear than a polished watch would.
