The Daytona reference 116520 is one of the classics among collectors and watch aficionados. Among the pieces produced the first year, it has been observed that some of the white dial turned to a cream color. In some very rare cases, the dial became yellow. This very rare dial has become a very desired item in the collection world. 

This strongly collectible wristwatch has recently been serviced by Rolex in September 2021
