we have a very interesting news for you about the Daytona Paul Newman red dials.
This topic created many discussions and doubts between collectors, dealers and in the specialized forums.
Somebody says that these dials are fake, somebody that they are original and they spend a fortune to have this type of watch with the red dial.
Osvaldo Patrizzi spoke to Singer & Cie SA, the company that produced the dials for Rolex in the past, and now we know the truth about this famous red dial.
This letter explains that Singer made an expertise of the* red/black Rolex Paul Newman dial of the ref. 6263 series No. 6625090 and the managing director affirms that this dial is original and was produced by Singer Ateliers in the Sixties.
Here you have the text in French written by the managing director of Singer & Cie SA.
We remind you that the original letter written by Singer will be published in the book Rolex Daytona Story, coming out in 2012 and already available for reservations.
Rolex Daytona Story will not be just the world’s biggest book on Rolex watches (together with “Rolex Submariner Story” and “Collecting Rolex Milgauss, Turn-O-Graph, Yacht-Master, Explorer”) but also the most important edition ever done on Rolex.
All Rolex Daytona references will be presented with the dates of the beginning and end of production as well
as specifying all their main features: push-buttons, crown, bezel, dial, crystal, bracelets, graphic details of logos, writing and hallmarks.
Updated prices of all Daytonas are enclosed.
