Stainless steel Rolex Daytona with two Rolex UK service slips….and most unusually a genuine diamond dial, fitted approx 15 years ago! Stainless steel Rolex Cosmograph Daytona model 116520 from approximately 2002, on Oysterlock 78490 bracelet. Unusually, soon after first sale the watch was fitted with a black / diamond dot dial that would typically be reserved for 18ct white gold models. Rolex themselves have been happy to accept this unusual specification, having twice now serviced the watch since it was swapped. This K28xxxx case number watch is in excellent condition, having most  recently been serviced by Rolex UK in July 2019, though the bezel and bracelet show moderate signs of wear. It comes with genuine Rolex 116520 boxes, Cosmograph Daytona booklet, the two year Rolex service warranty card dated July 2019 and an earlier one dated February 2007, both of which were carried out through us. We have also provided a certificate from the ALR Watch Register, confirming that we checked it with them. The NEW ceramic bezel models now have an RRP of £10,500 but waiting lists are generally closed and that model is commonly being sold on the secondary market for over £18,000. This has made the previous model 116520 an extremely attractive purchase and it remains in its own right one of the most sought after models in the range. We’ve never seen another steel Daytona 116520 with a diamond dial added like this, but can only speculate whether the first owner wanted it to look like a white gold model — or just fancied some sparkle! For those trying to work out what the diamond dial may be worth, it is a matter of simple mathematics to conclude that at the time of writing a diamond dial adds a £1,600 premium to the new RRP of those white gold Daytonas where it is an option.
