    Default Paul Newman's Paul Newman

    Well the Exotic dial Rolex Daytona owned by actor Paul Newman that led to the watch being known as the Paul Newman Daytona (Even by Rolex) has surfaced & will be auctioned in New York in the Autumn.
    Last month a Ref:6062 owned by the last emperor of Vietnam the Bao Dai sold for just over $5,000,000.

    There is speculation the Paul Newman Daytona could double that!

    Found: Paul Newman's Paul Newman Daytona, Seriously

    The story of how it left Mr Newman's ownership say's a lot about the man I think.
    Must have been a great bloke.

    No idea where this will end up. Jackie O's Cartier made over $300k without the premium, and this watch is the perfect storm of celebrity and lore. I only hope that the profits from the auction house are also going to charity...

    Yes all the speculation was $10 to $20 million & it didn't disappoint.
    Madness, but I guess if you have the money it's yours to spend how you like & if they stick to their promise to give all the proceeds to the Nell Newman trust even better.
