Up for grabs is a Rolex Daytona Cosmograph
R serial number circa 1988 production
This is a very rare first generation Zenith Daytona with “floating cosmograph” dial and MK1 bezel which were only produced within the first year of production. Furthermore, it is rare to see this dial and bezel in excellent preserved condition on a 16523, as most have been cherry picked and put into 16528 or 16518 cases to increase the value of resale. This watch is as-found, purchased previously from original owner along with a lady’s president they had. No box or papers survived, but the condition makes up for that.
Excellent vintage condition case is probably unpolished and crisp and thick lugs. Clear numbers.
Dial is excellent, floating cosmograph with tritium hands and markers.
The bezel is beautifully preserved with its factory enameil and “bevel” still clearly intact.
The bracelet is original Rolex 78363 with 13 links, correct M date code on clasp, 403 ends, very light stretch from use.
