About this watch

The Rolex Daytona in many of its variations is one of the most desirable and collectible watches available and I am delighted to be able to offer this quite exceptional piece.

The 16520 was first introduced in 1988 and remained in production until 2000. With the introduction of the reference came the first automatic movement in a Daytona, initially a heavily modified Zenith El Primero 400 caliber which today is highly prized by collectors, the 16520 was also the first Daytona with sapphire glass along with other significant modifications this was the to become the blueprint for what we recognise as all modern Daytona’s.

For the first few years of production the 16520 also had the unique feature of an inverted six appearing on the bottom sub dial, after around 1994 the six was returned to its upright position

The watch I have on offer today is a superb example manufactured in 1993 featuring a perfect inverted six dial along with the highly prized Zenith movement with the added benefit of recently being fully serviced by Rolex and still in factory stickers

The comes on its correct and perfect condition ref 78390 bracelet

The watch is supplied with its service receipt and pack from 2022 and a further purchase receipt for 2001 all contained in the Rolex hard wood box 

This a special opportunity to purchase a highly desirable black dial inverted six Zenith Daytona fresh from factory service with stickers and guaranteed by Rolex for two years
