Rolex Daytona 16520 Patrizzi Coloured

Brand: Rolex


Golden mistakes

‌It doesn’t happen a lot but when it happens, it adds value. “Hold on just a second Gaillard, if I make a mistake during my work, it rarely occurs that this results in more money”. Well, it’s not that Rolex likes making mistakes. It’s rather the opposite. If they had changed the dial during service, something they would definitely have done to correct their mistake, this watch would be worth considerably less.

‌We’re glad they didn’t

‌Here we present you one of the finest examples the Daytona range has to offer. After the prices of the four-digit variants exploded over the past few years, this neo vintage 16520 is the next best thing. With its creamy colored sub dials, this watch has patinaed to something truly unique. The patina happened because of a faulty lacquer that proved to be too weak to withstand UV light. A mistake Rolex would still love to correct to this day even though they know the value of the watch will drop. This is because of their policy that all Rolex watches need to be to a certain standard both mechanically and physically.

‌What else makes this watch special is the fact that this is the last year of the 5-digit reference Daytona’s and that this one has luminova instead of the tritium.

‌So, we thank the 90’s watchmakers for their beautiful mistakes and keep on enjoying the different characters each and everyone of their watches bring.

‌The watch is in store and more than ready to be loved and enjoyed for many years to come
