This Rolex Daytona 16520 marks an important chapter in Rolex's history - the Zenith era - creating a blend of Rolex's iconic design language and the technical prowess of Zenith's Calibre 4030.
A movement celebrated for its unwavering precision and reliability, the collaboration between Rolex and Zenith has resulted in a captivating chapter in the iconic Daytona narrative - but the charm is not reserved just for the interior of the watch; housed within a durable 40mm stainless steel Oyster case, the watch unveils a pristine white dial. The tri-compax layout pays tribute to Daytona's racing heritage and the contrasting subdials sit perfectly against the silver-toned backdrop, striking an attractive visual balance.
One particularly charming aspect of this particular 1997 model is the tritium dial markers, over time, they've matured to a creamy hue, which beautifully offsets the crisp dial and amplifies the vintage appeal.
The watch also comes with its original 78390 bracelet, stamped V10 - having being produced in October 1996 - and its original box. With its unique blend of characteristics and considering the market prices of the more common modern ceramic versions, this piece offers an undeniable allure and compelling value.
