The case of this Rolex Daytona (ref. 16528) is preserved in excellent vintage condition. It shows all the signs of an unpolished case, retaining its original shape, with very light wear throughout. On the reverse, the milling on the case-back is nicely preserved. The case is original to the watch, with appropriately corresponding serial numbers, consistent with the year of manufacture. The case-back further exhibits strongly-defined, original hallmarks on the reverse of the lugs. The applied hour markers are tritium, matching the handset. The dial of this ref. 16528 is further distinguished by its condition, with no visible imperfections. The original, 18-carat oyster bracelet has no stretch, with flush ends links and corresponding references/hallmarks on the clasp. The 4030 calibre movement of this ref. 16528 has perfect mechanical functionality, keeps good time and comes with a two-year warranty from our company. The ref. 16528 offered here has a Mark III dial, which is consistent with the watch’s 1991 year of production. The sub-dial at six o’clock features an ‘inverted 6’ variation, where the number six is inverted and appears as a nine, a detail which appeared on watches produced as late as 1994-5. The dial also features text on 5 lines, with the words “OFFICIALLY CERTIFIED” reappearing after having disappeared on the earlier Mark II dial. This dial configuration is among the rarer ones, with most watches in this reference featuring a Mark IV dial which does not feature the ‘inverted 6’. The white dial on this particular example, beyond the appealing contrast and stark visual presence it gives the watch, also enhances its rarity.

All our watches are 100% authentic and exactly as described.
