The 18k JPS Paul Newman Daytona 6264 24–31 July 2020 • 10:00 AM BST • London

Few timepieces are more coveted than a late-1960s gold Rolex Daytona. At the top of this exclusive group is a true gem: the ‘John Player Special’, named after the legendary 1970s Formula 1 livery, due to its black and gold “Paul Newman” dial. Exceedingly rare and produced in very small quantities over a short period of time, Daytona JPS models seldom appear for sale and fewer than 10 pieces of a gold ref. 6264 are known to exist. This single lot sale offers an ultra-rare Rolex Daytona JPS reference 6264 in 18-carat gold.

ROLEX, COSMOGRAPH DAYTONA PAUL NEWMAN "JOHN PLAYER SPECIAL", REF 6264 AN EXTREMELY RARE AND OUTSTANDINGLY BEAUTIFUL YELLOW GOLD CHRONOGRAPH WRISTWATCH WITH BRACELET CIRCA 1969. ESTIMATE £320,000–650,000.
