One look at Vasileios’ vintage Rolex Daytona Paul Newman replica watch and we knew we made the right choice to fly him out to our offices. The Paul Newman Rolex was an engagement gift that Vasileios’ father received from his father-in-law in 1971. Aside from the fact that the ref. 6239 is arguably one of the coolest, rarest, and most coveted vintage sports watches ever made by Rolex, this particular one is in excellent condition.
While the voyage was long and tiring, the all-expenses paid trip and payment Vasileios received when he sold us the Paul Newman, was well worth the effort. He even picked up a Submariner for himself while in our showroom.
The Rolex Daytona ref. 6239 copy watch was, of course, the first Daytona to be furnished with the Art Deco inspired dial—dubbed as the “exotic dial” by Rolex. This type of dial would later be known as the “Paul Newman” since the actor wore it often. In fact, the ref. 6239 was the same exact reference Paul Newman himself wore, but with a white dial. Vasileios’ ref. 6239, on the other hand, has the black dial, white registers, red outer minute track, and red DAYTONA label.
The Daytona Paul Newman Rolex ref. 6239 also includes the manual-winding Valjoux movement in addition to pump pushers. To say that the Paul Newman Daytona enjoys a cult following in the vintage Rolex ref. 6239 copy watch collecting world is an understatement. It is by far the most popular vintage luxury sports watch in today’s market.
