The Rolex Daytona 16500 series 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 400 - Once Rolex had finished making over 150 modifications to the cal 400, the first automatic movement to grace the coronet was born, the now iconic 4030. 

This lesser know reference, the 16518 was only sold on leather, the sister watch to the 16528 that only came on a gold band This example boasts the much rarer white baton dial as apposed to the regular arabic numbers often seen with this reference. 

The watch comes with its Rolex deployment clasp marked EO denoting it was made in 2007. The movement is running like a dream. 0,1 beat error, -2 secs a day and at 260 amps. Paired with a stunning hand made taupe leather strap, it tones the watch down to make it perfect for daily use.

Considering the current yellow gold Daytona on Oysterflex retails at nearly 27k, we think this rarer and significant model is well worth 7k less.
