Rolex Daytona “Paul Newman” Ref. 6239 | December 2019 Important Watches

The Important Watches collection is led by an exceedingly rare and fresh-to-market Rolex Daytona “Paul Newman” Ref. 6239, known amongst watch enthusiasts as the most desirable and valuable vintage sport watches. It will be offered for an estimate of $150,000–$250,000 at auction. Famously worn by the actor and race car enthusiast, the watch has become just as legendary as the man who it is associated with.

“Paul Newman” Daytona’s come in a variety of reference numbers, and the 6239 reference is the particular model worn and popularized by Paul Newman. While the current reference offered this December is considered the least rare of the “Paul Newman” watches, it is certainly considered the most authentic. The present example is investment grade, checking all the boxes on condition and comes on the original Rolex rivet bracelet.
