Description

The Luna Rossa
The Rolex Daytona with Red Dial and Suspended Logo
Reference 16528

Sotheby's is thrilled to present this exceptionally rare and highly important Rolex Daytona with Zenith movement and blood red dial with suspended logo. This historically important wristwatch was discovered for the very first time only recently, is fresh to the market and previously unknown.

The case carries an E series serial number, indicating a manufacture year of 1990. The reference number 16528 is also the reference number used for the known porcelain floating Cosmograph dials.

The automatic Rolex Daytona was first introduced to the market in 1988. This new model completely changed the concept of a sports chronograph. The movement was powered by the celebrated Zenith El Primero caliber 400 mechanism.

There are many interesting attributes to this watch that make it highly unusual. The dial is the only known example to be finished with a deep red colour that is stamped on the reverse with the Singer signature and feet that are consistent with other suspended logo dials. What highlights it even further is the suspended logo and inverted 6 within the 12 hour register, again, consistent with other porcelain floating Cosmograph dials. Further rendering this watch exceptional is the wonderful state of preservation throughout with very sharp case lines, hallmarks and bracelet.

Sotheby's is delighted to be given the opportunity and trust to offer this extremely rare timepiece. Every aspect and detail of this watch render it one of the most exciting automatic Daytona to be offered at auction.

蘇富比於是次拍賣為藏家呈獻一枚極為罕有及重要的勞力士「Daytona」腕錶,搭載真力時機芯及血紅色錶盤印有懸浮Cosmograph標誌。此枚極具歷史意義的珍罕時計於最近才首次面世,從未見諸市場。

此錶錶殼刻有E系列序列編號,生產年份推斷為1990年。腕錶型號16528亦為「Daytona」系列陶瓷錶盤所屬編號。

自動上鏈「Daytona」於1988年首度推出市場,徹底顛覆運動計時腕錶的概念。此系列亦搭載知名真力時El Primero 400機械機芯。

此枚腕錶與眾不同之處在於其特徵。於深紅色錶盤背面的Singer品牌標誌及固定梢與其他印有懸浮Cosmograph標誌的錶盤一致,而且是獨見於此錶。錶盤印有懸浮Cosmograph標誌,12小時計時小錶盤的6字上下顛倒,與「Daytona」系列陶瓷錶盤相同。此拍品品相極佳,錶殼及鍊帶線條銳利分明,金屬印記清晰可見。

蘇富比能夠得到藏家信任呈獻此枚彌足珍貴的時計,與有榮焉。此拍品於每個細節均令其足以成為拍賣史上最矚目的「Daytona」自動上鏈腕錶。
