Rolex Daytona 16520 Porcelain Dial: a collector's watch at its best...

Written by Fabrice Gueroux. There are very few legendary watches in recent watchmaking history that have the reputation of being almost untouchable, or at least in pristine condition.

Here is a watch that can certainly be qualified as a showpiece and it is always a great pleasure for me to be given the opportunity to show what I qualify as a mythical watch and an exceptional collector's item.

Today, we all know how the Rolex Daytona Paul Newman has evolved over the years.

The Rolex Daytona 16520 porcelain dial shown here is very simply the logical successor of these untouchable watches that attract the attention of today's greatest collectors. I sincerely hope with these next few lines to convey my enthusiasm for this exceptional timepiece.
