As the second release of the BLAKEN Vintage line the “Paul Newman” Rolex Daytona is now ready to order. Just last week we presented the beautiful and subtle BLAKEN Rolex Submariner “Explorer Dial” and perfectly in line with that, the above Daytona also mixes vintage inspiration and brings a piece of Rolex history to our present times.
Back in 1963 when the model 6241 was on the market and famous movie actor Paul Newman decided to wear one of these masterpieces, the history began. The watch was sold for a record breaking price of $1.1 million at auction at Christie’s in 2013. Just the other day we presented a nice video explaining the various versions of the Rolex Daytona “Paul Newman” and its importance in the watch industry. Check it out here.
BLACKEN now pays tribute to the iconic design and its 41 years of history using modern technology and BLAKEN’s own hybrid process of their patented hardening and coating process. The basis model for this limited edition Daytona is the current Ref.:116520. A brand new Rolex Daytona has been given the vintage looks from the past, essentially creating the perfect hybrid of the two – vintage looks with modern materials and functionality. Limited to 41 pieces globally, you can now order your personal version of the watch directly from BLAKEN.
