Rolex Daytona Steel 16520 Black Dial U-Series


A change of colour is coming…

The Rolex Daytona is a Goliath of the watch-collecting world, with the post-1988 Perpetual Daytonas recently gaining a huge foothold in the collector community. We are delighted to offer this black dialed version dating to 1998 in beautiful original condition. The black dial is flawless with sub dials that have turned a nice mellow brown colour over time…this really is a great looking watch! The dial has tritium lume and the ‘6’ in the hours register, on the bottom sub dial, is the correct way up – traditionally this was known as a Mk4 dial. The original solid link Oyster bracelet, ref 78390, is in superb condition with a clasp stamped ‘U4’ and 503b endlinks. The watch has been fully serviced by our watchmaker.
