Lot Essay

This endangered species strap is shown for display purposes only and is not for sale. The watch will be supplied with a calf leather strap.

The present ref. 116518 is preserved in good overall condition and its impresses by its perfectly harmonizing black and champagne dial with outer red minute divisions, considered by many collectors as the legitimate successor of the famous Paul Newman Daytona.

Reference 116518 was launched at the 2001 Baselworld equipped with a fully in-house Rolex movement, calibre 4130. With fewer components, meaning improved reliability and an easier servicing procedure, this new movement also had an increased the power reserve: 72 hours compared to its predecessors 54.
