A wristwatch made for racing drivers, the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona was designed to measure elapsed time and calculate average speeds. The name refers to Daytona, Florida, where racing thrived in the early 20th century. The first series came to be known as the “Paul Newman” Daytona, named after the well-known actor and racer who famously wore it throughout his racing career. A Rolex “Paul Newman” Daytona is featured in Fortuna Auction’s upcoming Important Watches sale. Its black dial is designed with applied hour markers, red detailing on the outer track, and chronograph subregisters.
Another highlight is a night-themed Audemars Piguet Millenary watch in 18-karat white gold. It is designed with a diamond-paved extern zone, a blue aventurine off-centered disc, “stardust” decorations, and white gold hands. Also offered is a Jaeger-LeCoultre Skeleton Reverso platinum wristwatch, a limited edition piece with an engraved square face.
