About this watch

As many collectors are aware it’s often the errors in manufacturing process that make some pieces more desirable than others and such is the case in the Patrizzi dial Daytona, named after the famous auctioneer who discovered the irregular colouring on a low number of Daytona dials. The fault in this instance is the substance zapon contains a silver content that has allowed the subdials to turn a very desirable copper colour. Each watch ages differently so no two are ever the same and I am delighted to be able to offer you one of the most collectible Daytona’s available today complete with the original Rolex punched papers dated 1996 and showing the watch was supplied by the prestigious jeweller Bucherer in Genève ,a watch that is not only a pleasure to wear but also hotly tipped as one of the best investments on the market today.

This example ref 16520 dates from 1996 comes equipped with the highly prized Zenith cal 4030 automatic movement, however the dial is the standout feature of this piece and in my opinion has the best colouration of any Patrizzi available I hope these images do it justice.

The watch comes complete with the original Rolex punched papers and Rolex inner and outer boxes.

This piece is in stock and ready for worldwide shipping.
