Lot Essay

Of specific interest, the present timepiece distinguishes itself through its provenance and dial, nicknamed ‘APH’ due to the printing variation of the ‘Cosmograph’ text where the ‘APH’ letters are slightly separated from the preceding letters and the word is in a slightly different font than found in other examples of this reference. An important representative of the reference 116520, it is from the select part of production intended for the Sultanate Oman, and bestowed with the Khanjar symbol to its case back. In impeccable condition the watch is moreover offered with its original guarantee.

With the advent of the new millennium, Rolex decided to release a new version of their iconic Daytona chronograph. Introduced at the Basel fair in 2000, the case had been redesigned with new glossy lugs and was manufactured with a bracelet with solid links. The chronograph was assembled with the new movement caliber 4130, which lead the sub-register for running seconds to move from 9 to 6 o'clock. From a technical point of view, the new caliber maintains the COSC certification, has 44 rubies, a four-arms monometallic balance wheel made in Glucydur, micrometric "microstar" regulation featuring four elements screwed onto the balance wheel's ring, 28,000 alternations per hour, KIF shock-absorbing device. With time and the discontinuation of the reference, Rolex collectors started paying specific attention to this specific model and particularities of each pieces.
