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 reference, the 16523, is the bi metal variant of the 16500 series. This example boasts the black mk3 'inverted 6' dial with wonderfully creamy baton markers. The case is still super sharp as is the mk3 bezel. 

The watch comes with its original Oyster bracelet that is stamped P1, denoting its manufacture in Jan 91. The movement is in exceptional health 0,1 beat error, 0 secs a day and at 280 amps. 

These early bi metal variants look so different to the modern versions, there slimness and warmer sub dials plus the contrasting red Daytona moniker make them stand out. 

This example is very well priced, considering the sudden surge of interest into gold watches, we cant imagine this will hang around too long.
