The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona is among the most appreciated and recognized chronograph models by any manufacturer. When it comes fitted with the rare “exotic” or so-called “Paul Newman” dial, its rarity, aesthetic appeal, and collectability are profoundly increased. This dial, distinguished by the three dimensional construction, with sunken subsidiary dials and sunken outer chapter ring, was an alternative dial offered to clients at the time. Ironically, this variation was not appreciated by the market at the time of its production. It took decades for collectors to prize this "exotic" dial variation. The present example is fresh-to-market and comes directly from the family of the original owner.
