Perhaps the most important “Paul Newman” Daytonas ever offered at auction, this steel chronograph dating to 1969 — with a tachymeter bezel, 1/5-second-divisions track printed in red, and “tropical” Paul Newman dial layout (characterized by, among other elements, the combination of hashmarks with tiny squares in the chrono subdials— is one of only two such examples of this reference known to be in existence. The Italian nickname “Oyster Sotto” (“Oyster Underneath”) refers to the rare configuration of the word “Oyster” placed under the word “Cosmograph” at the 12 o’clock position. This is among the very first Rolex Daytona Replica watches with Paul Newman dials to be placed in an Oyster case, with screw-down pushers offering greater water resistance over the previous models’ “pump” pushers. The watch has a 37.5-mm diameter case and a stainless steel Oyster bracelet with deployant clasp, and contains a manual-wind Valjoux 727 movement.
Another highly collectible example of the same reference, also circa 1969, this watch features a Paul Newman dial in the so-called “Panda” style (off-white dial with black chronograph subdials and outer chapter ring) and like the Rolex Replica UK Oyster Sotto above, offers an intriguing example of aged color on the dial: the 1/5-seconds scale on the outer edge has evolved into an exceptionally uniform, and unique, shade of caramel orange.
With its wildly unconventional style compared to Rolex models of today, the Zerographe is largely a mystery even to Rolex aficionados and scholars, as there is no official information on the model available from Cheap Rolex Replica or even any period advertising to provide detail on it. What is known about this extraordinarily rare timepiece, however, is that it was the first Rolex chronograph in an Oyster case. This piece, issued in 1937, is the first to be fitted with the in-house Caliber 10 1/2″, a manually-wound movement with a single-button flyback chronograph function.
The Best Fake Rolex that graces the cover of Phillips’ catalog for this auction is one of only 12 pieces ever made. Extensive research has show that the example below, bearing case number 051’314, was the second one manufactured in this extremely limited run. The watch, dating to 1942, is even more significant to collectors because none of the 12 pieces were ever offered directly to the public but instead, most likely, presented to racing team owners and drivers that Fake Rolex Watches was sponsoring at the time. It features a a silvered matte dial, rose-gold raised Arabic numerals and baton hour markers, a tachymeter scale and a telemeter scale in blue print. It contains the manual-wind caliber 55 VBR, which powers a split-seconds chronograph function, undoubtedly for use in timing races.
This Daytona from 1966 — again, one of only a handful known to exist with this type of dial — got its nickname from the blue-printed pulsometer scale along the dial’s outer edge. This numbered scale — which necessitated a redesign of the existing Replica Watches Daytona dial to accommodate it — was intended for use by medical professionals, who would use it in conjunction with the chronograph to determine the exact number per minute of a patient’s heartbeats. On this dial, the hour markers were moved slightly closer to the center while the minutes scale and “T-SWISS” designation were also repositioned.
