A stunning, full set example of the Rolex Daytona reference 16528 from 1991. The Daytona 16528 offers an ideal combination of sportiness and opulence. With its head-turning 18k yellow gold case with its screw-down pushers, and contrasting black dial this Daytona offers the sort of wrist presence few watches can match. 

If we're honest, as lovers of subtle and minimalist vintage watches we thought we'd hate this - the result however surprised us! Yes, it's not subtle, but unlike some of the garish creations you see plastered on Instagram, the Daytona 16528 somehow still manages to remain elegant.

Just back from a complete service, this watch offers a great opportunity to get your hands on a full set example of what is already a very collectable Rolex Daytona!

The history behind the Rolex Daytona

The Rolex reference 6239 is considered by many to be the first Daytona. Launched in 1963, initially, it was known simply as the "Cosmograph". The following year Daytona would be added to the dial signifying the brand’s sponsorship of the annual 24 Hours of Daytona race, held in Daytona Beach, Florida.

Fast forward to 1988 and Rolex would launch the first automatic Daytona with the introduction of the reference 16520. The heavily modified calibre 400 movement from the Zenith El Primer that powered the 16520 gave rise to its name as the “Zenith Daytona”.

As well as the new movement, this series of Daytonas also included a larger 40mm case, new crystal and different hour markers and sub-dials that featured contrasting timing tracks instead of fully contrasting sub-dials of earlier examples. 

For an in-depth look into the history and origins of the Rolex Daytona, we highly recommend that you check out the article written by WatchTime called, 'Tracking the Rolex Daytona: A 55-Year History'.

Technical & Condition: 

Presented in overall excellent condition. The case, whilst polished remains in good order. The dial has taken on an attractive subtle patina that oozes elegance. The hands remain in excellent shape.

The Watches

Are all watches authenticated?

All our watches pass through a double authentication process to insure their authenticity. We also provide detailed photos of the watch from all angles to allow you to undertake your own anlysis. Finally as with everything, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out to our friendly team

What if something goes wrong with the watch

Whilst all our watches are fully serviced before sale, if something does go wrong, we'll repair it for free as part of our 1 year warranty

Do watches come with original box and papers?

It depends on the individual watch. You can see details under "The Basics" heading on this page. For the majority of vintage watches their original box and papers have been lost to time. Whilst they are nice to have, it’s important to note that “box and papers” DO NOT authenticate a watch despite what many in our trade say. It’s also important to realise alot of sellers (including some of the most well known in the UK) put together full sets of box, papers, hang tags etc by buying blank paperwork and boxes in the secondary market. This is a very regrettable, but unfortunately common occurrence in the trade but something we will never do!

How do I know it will fit?

For metal bracelets we provide the size it will currently fit in the description section of this page. If this measurement is too large or too small we are able to assist in either adding or removing links. We also offer this service, post service on a at-cost basis (i.e. we don't add a margin).

Can you change the strap?

Absolutely! If you don't like the current strap, let us know and we'll change it for free! We maintain a broad selection of styles and can also source straps to your specification free of charge.

Can you source something similar?

Absolutely! If its not quite what you’re looking for just get in touch and we can source one with our Free, No Obligation sourcing service. You can contact us on phone, live chat or simply submit the details of what you’re looking for on our “Find a Watch” page.

Payment

What payment options do you offer?

We accept payment by all leading credit and debit cards, ApplePay as well as bank transfer.

Do you offer financing?

Currently we don't offer financing but it’s something we're exploring.

Shipping & Returns

Can you ship an order to arrive on a certain day?

We can certainly try! We can request with our shipment partners for delivery on a certain day but ultimately the exact delivery date is subject to a number of factors outside our control.

How do I return a watch?

Simply let us know you want to send the watch back within the 14 return period and return it to us via Royal Mail Special Delivery. We’ll process your refund the same day we receive the watch back.
