Last year, the Paul Newman Rolex Daytona was actioned of for $17.725 million, making it the most expensive wristwatch ever sold. Few thought that this year's’ Daytona Ultimatum would be able to raise the bar, that is until it was announced that the one of a kind white gold Rolex Daytona reference 6265 will be going under the hammer.
The 6265, originally produced in the 1970’s, were only crafted in stainless steel, 18k yellow gold, and 14k yellow gold. The ‘Unicorn’ 6265 was thus most likely a special order.The dial is a Sigma dial with white gold markers and the case retains the proper hallmarks too. The watch features an unusual bark-finished bracelet, and it’s crown is made of stainless steel.
There’s no telling how much money the 6265 will be sold for, one thing's for sure, the new owner is sure to feel good about his purchase as 100% of the proceeds will go towards the children action charity.
