It was the collection of Rolex Daytonas, however, that brought about two new world records, appropriately enough for the iconic sports watch’s 50th anniversary year. The highlight of the collection, a very rare Rolex Ref. 6263 Gold Daytona “Paul Newman” model, with a prototype lemon dial and white graphics made in the late 1960s (lot 512), sparked an intense bidding war and ultimately sold to a room bidder for the astonishing world-record price of CHF 841, 300, nearly three times its low estimate and the highest price ever attained for a Rolex Daytona.
