    The ultimate personalization of this watch is its Asprey signature finely engraved on the case back, proof that it was retailed by the most famous British house.

    The Rolex Daytona is widely accepted as one of the world's most iconic and legendary wristwatches ever created and is celebrating this year, in 2013, its 50th birthday.

    Asprey
    Renowned jeweller Asprey was founded in London in 1781 by William Asprey and was appointed jeweller to the Queen starting with Queen Victoria in 1861.
