Rolex Daytona 16523



Featured in Lug2Lug

Okay, let's have a look at this one. It's a reference 16523 and it was born the same year I was, 1995. It features the same black dial with champagne subdials, case size, screw down pushers, bracelet and clasp.

The focus here is the condition, particularly of the case. Not only does it show little evidence of wear but look at those lugs. They're brushed, polished and sharply divided.

And as if that wasn't enough, have a look at the case back – green plastic, bitches. The original Rolex sticker. In its 21 years, this Zenith Daytona did little more than desk diving and now we can enjoy its life of leisure.

Although certainly not the antithesis of bling, this vintage Rolex Daytona is markedly more approachable than its yellow gold sibling you can find HERE.
