Paul Newman’s Rolex Daytona Sold for a Record Figure.


The legendary actor’s iconic watch was sold for jaw breaking 17.52M USD making it the most expensive wristwatch ever sold.


The auction is hosted by the world famous Phillips Auction House. Paul Newmans personal watch was sold for a record breaking sales price of 17.52M USD (including the buyers fee), which is far more than the previously auctioned Bao Dais Rolex Ref. 6062 (sold for 5M USD) and last years Patek Phillippe Ref. 1518 (sold for 11M USD).        


The auction, run by Aurel Bachs, started with a reserve price of $ 1 million which is modest for Paul Newman’s own watch Rolex Daytona. Upon Tiffany Tos (of Phillips) clients bid of 10M USD, the auction became very excited.


Soon, the auction turned in to a battle between Tos and Monbarons clients. The final bid of 15.5M got the watch with a 17.52M USD sales price including the buyers fee.
