Rolex Cosmograph Daytona in Stainless Steel
Reference – 116520
The Story Behind This Watch
This is a lightly worn example of a stainless steel, black dial Rolex Cosmograph Daytona. The Rolex 116520 is one of the iconic watches ever produced and is sought by watch collectors across the world. This reference was the last of the line before transitioning to ceramic bezels in 2016. The G series is also unique, as it was the last production year before the "scrambled" serial numbers. It also features (in our opinion) the best of the 116520: engraved rehaut, re-designed solid oyster bracelet, and new flip lock clasp (from the 116710 GMT-Master II). This lead to an increased in the feeling of sturdiness and build quality.
Undoubtedly, this is sure to be a watch that will continue to appreciate in value as collectors continue to add late model (ie. previous reference) Daytonas to complement their existing collection.
