Sobre el objeto

cal. 727 manual winding movement, 17 jewels "lemon dial", applied baton and luminous dots indexes, 3 engine-turned subsidiary dials for constant seconds, 30-minute and 12-hour register 18k yellow gold case, black bezel calibrated for 200 units, chronograph pushers to the band, screw-down crown and case back  case, dial and movement signed  with an 18k yellow gold Rolex buckle\nPopularity of the Paul Newman Daytona is at an all-time high and buyers of such models range from Rolex lovers, profound collectors to celebrities. While many would argue the reasons for its appeal to the general public, reasons can vary from its multi-color exotic dial, the reliability of the movement, the history of the reference and the history of Paul Newman to the rarity of the watch. Many collectors would also argue that the fun in collecting a Paul Newman Daytona is for the mysterious and indefinite database we have of Rolex. A Paul Newman Daytona can be any watch that has a reference of 6239, 6241, 6262, 6263, 6264 and 6265. However not all watches of these references can be regarded as a Paul Newman Daytona, and it is because a Paul Newman Daytona is defined by the configuration of the dial.  Simply speaking, the dial combination required for any collectors to claim their watches as a Paul Newman Daytona must include the characteristic of a 3-colored dial, an art deco-style font and the hash marks with small squares to the subsidiary dial.\nIt is said that for every 20 normal Daytona dials, there would be one exotic dial made. Yet among all the exotic dials made there is also a classification of which combination is more desirable. The combination immediately becomes more difficult when the reference and material of the watch come in to the picture. For instance a gold Paul Newman Daytona case would be rarer than one made in a stainless steel case, as there were only a fraction produced.\nThe present watch is a Rolex, Paul Newman Daytona reference 6264 in a yellow gold case and with a dial nicknamed Lemon dial by the Rolex community. The configuration of a Lemon dial is uncommon for various reasons; typically the dial color should be more of a cream color, and yet the Lemon dial features a more attractive citric tone with an intense black subsidiary dials and white graphics instead of gilt subsidiary-markers.  To the best of our knowledge, there are only a handful of Lemon dials known. What further distinguishes the present example is the outer minute track which has turned to a very warm tropical brown.\nThere are many very appealing features to the present watch. When one considers the 2.35 serial number, the correct Mk 1 bezel, the luminous dots that are even and have aged consistently matching the hands under the rays of an ultraviolet light and finally the case that is preserved in in excellent condition, with sharp finishes to the top of the lugs and gold marks beneath the lugs you have what many call today, a Trophy market watch. Sothebys is delighted to present this truly exceptional and rare Paul Newman 6264 with Lemon dial for auction.\nFor similar example of reference 6264 Lemon Dial, please see "Ultimate Rolex Daytona by Pucci Papaelo, pages 316-319.
