Time – it’s an essential part of our day to day lives which we are ruled by. However, the need to know the time is no longer a mere necessity; it is also a way to make a personal statement. In today’s society a watch is no longer just a functional item of our daily attire, instead it has become a fashionable, iconic, elite, and glamorous signifier of your chosen lifestyle. A Rolex watch exudes class, luxury and wealth, which is a fantastic statement to be able to pronounce to the world.
A Rolex watch makes a fantastic gift, especially for a special birthday where you can present it during fine dining Birmingham. Johnson Jewellers have been official Rolex agents for over forty years, and as such jewellers can offer customers invaluable advice surrounding the various types of Rolex watches currently available.
A common question which many jewellers get asked is what is the most expensive Rolex watch in the world. As one of the leading manufacturers of watches in the world, it is not surprising to hear that the most expensive Rolex watch which has been sold exceeded $300,000.
In 2003 a Rolex watch was auctioned off for a magnificent $350,000. The Daytona Paul Newman is among the original Daytona produced in limited supply during the 1960’s until the 1980’s. The original series which featured the elite Paul Newman became an iconic watch, which is illustrated in the price for which it was auctioned off for.
The Daytona Paul Newman is a very rare watch, and its subtle features makes it incredibly hard to distinguish without a trained eye to find out the classic features which it holds. One of the most noticeable is it’s the dial, coined the Paul Newman Dial. The sub dial usually has block markers instead of lines and is set in a contrasting colour to the main dial itself.
