By far the most coveted watch in Rolex collecting world, with the rarest dial designed in which the oyster is written under the word chronograph. For years considered a chimera, it made speak for itself all over the world after the Daytona auction at Christie’s in 2013. Sold for over a million dollars, it has forever changed the world of Rolex collecting. To date they have appeared only 5 or 6 specimens.
Probably the result of the auction does not set the price of a watch but certainly today it exceeds € 500,000. If we consider that in 2012 tow examples were auctioned, one for just under € 200,000 another with brown dial for less than € 300,000 you can understand how the watch market is also an important investment that adds to the pleasure of owning them, a important opportunity to gain.
Thanks to Mr Corrado Mattarelli for this precious interview.
