I visited Phillips Auction house earlier. Recently, there has been a lot of talking about this company because they are auctioning Paul Newman's Rolex. And guess what? It is a Paul Newman Daytona. I took some pictures and hope you guys enjoy them.

I can see what you’re saying but this could be a trick of the light or simply caused by the poor pixilation of the image. Without the watch personally in hand it’s impossible to tell from the photos

It is not the light. I took the pictures and amplified it because I noticed the uneven bevel while handling the watch. In person, it was very obvious.

Wow, I forgot you’d actually handled the watch. It certainly doesn’t do the look of the watch any favours but then again it is around 63yrs old. Personally, if I was able to purchase an all original 6200 I’d be waiting on a much cleaner example.

Do you happen to know what the asking price was on this 6200?

I believe it went for $600k plus auction fees (I will double check). For that kind of money, I would expect a better case. Even for half of that amount, I would expect a perfect case. Of course, I might be off.

I agree with your thoughts entirely. I can think of plenty of other watches that are more worthy of that kind of price tag, especially when it comes to aesthetics and condition. I guess if the watch has a great provenance that’ll be why the price is so high.

I do absolutely love the style of the 6200 but for $600K I’d be buying a vintage Daytona

Well, for $600K, I would buy a vintage Daytona and a house on the beach.

Have to say more guys here can refinish better chamfers/bevels, and probably relumes.
I’ve probably only seen about 15 - 6200’s, even with the crappy refinish it’s still in my top 5 :lol:

Quick update: The actual sale price for the 6200 is $579,000.

Like you, I think I’d spend that kind of cash on a great vintage piece and a house

Honestly, what is so bad about this watch? I mean it is about 65 years old and was worn. Probably you can find better and cheaper exemplars of 6538 but not of this.

There are much better examples of the 6200 out there that have sold for much less[WINKING FACE]

Here’s a great price reference article:

Like Mr Savy said, better samples for less out there. What would concern me is that the chamfer is a sign of someone messing with the case, as in trying to refinish the watch to look like it was not polish. That watch was promoted as being unpolished. Nothing wrong with polishing the case, specially for a watch that is that old. However, the sale information should disclose that detail.

At least mines got a gilt dial and has had a gentle restoration to make it look pretty LOL. It’s win-win for me, especially since mine cost almost 1000th of what that one went for at auction. For looks, my 6200 has them to die for, but of course, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. :D
