Rolex Cosmograph Daytona 16528 Pave Dial with Emerald Hours

Diamonds and emeralds make this chrono racy...

This is one of the most stunning and interesting Rolex sports watches we have had the honour to offer. The Rolex Daytona needs little introduction, but this example in yellow gold deserves a fanfare due to its incredible dial and outstanding almost new condition.

The dial is fully set with diamonds across the whole surface, known as pave. The dial is also set with emeralds at the hour markers, which gives the watch a truly stunning presence. The sub dials are gold colour and the only text on the dial is ROLEX which is printed on a small plaque beneath the applied yellow gold coronet.

The case is in really superb condition and can only have been worn on a handful of occasions, even the case back sticker is still intact. The watch is accompanied by a Rolex service card (and invoice) from 2017 as well as both inner and outer boxes, wallet, calendar, hang tags and the Cosmograph Daytona booklet. The original solid link Oyster bracelet, ref 78398, is in truly outstanding condition with solid endlinks. The watch houses a Calibre 4030, based on the Zenith El-Primero movement, that has been fully serviced by our watchmaker.

This really is an incredible opportunity to acquire a very special and sought after example of the mighty Daytona!
