Rolex Daytona Steel 116520 White ‘APH’ Dial


Mind the gap…

In 2000, Rolex unveiled their in-house movement the calibre 4130 through the 116500 series Daytonas. Today we re offering a steel 116520 in really wonderful condition having been serviced by Rolex in 2018. The case remains strong in all areas with a great condition bezel with all the numbers intact and crisp. This watch features an interesting dial that collectors have termed ‘APH’, due to the noticeable gap in the word COSMOGRAPH between the ‘R’ and the ‘A’. These dials appeared in the last four years of the 116520’s run. This example is in outstanding condition and features blue Chromalight lume in the hour markers and hands. The solid link Oyster bracelet reference 78490 in in great condition and features solid end links (SEL) and a clasp stamped ‘8 FK’. The watch will be accompanied by box, booklets, hangtag and service papers. The watch was serviced in 2018 and so there is still the remaining three years of warranty, which is fully transferable.
