Next month, Phillips will cooperate with Bacs & Russo to hold the Racing Pulse New York Watch Auction to present one of most important models of Rolex in the world – fake Rolex Daytona Ref.6263 “Big Red”. For more than 20 years, Paul Newman usually wore this watch, leaving many precious photos.
In 2008, he gave this Rolex replica with black dial to his daughter Claire Olivia as gift. According to Claire, this special timepiece was gifted by Joanne Woodward for their 25th wedding anniversary.
Now the Paul Newman Daytona are very popular and all these watches are all sold at high price. But in fact, this steel bracelet copy Rolex Daytona is not the “Paul Newman” Daytona exactly. We all consider that the Daytona with special “exotic dials” as Paul Newman Daytona. However, this timepiece without the exotic dial worn by Paul Newman is not the “Paul Newman Daytona”.
The popular Daytona Ref.6239 was auctioned at $15,500,000, refreshing the auction record. While will this copy Ref.6263 “Big Red”be sold at a high price?
