Rolex Daytona Self-Winding Story by Osvaldo Patrizzi and Guido Mondani (SKU RDSA)
The new book “Self-Winding Rolex Daytona” is the most complete and detailed edition on these watches. With 320 pages of completely unpublished contents, the authors begin their journey in the year 1988 with the reference 16520. For this model alone you will find 12 different dials, which are illustrated and described in every little detail. Following this long and thorough review of all the references with a Zenith movement, 14 different dial types of the ref. 116520 are illustrated and described in every detail, including the “chromalight,” “cream” and “APH” versions, to name just a few examples. In this edition you will find unique pieces and very rare prototypes, as well as customized watches and special dials. Technical features and examination of all watch parts (movements, dials, bezels, subdials, case backs, hands, indexes, pushers, winding crowns, bracelets and a lot more). Special attention is paid to the differences between dials and bezels: these little characteristics have a major influence on the value of a watch. This book focuses on the most sought-after “Cerachrom” Daytona, illustrates NOS models, complete with their box and warranty, and gives information on how a watch should look at the time of purchase today. This information will be very helpful, considering all the non-original models on the market. Moreover, you will find a description of all the latest models of the Oysterflex, the racing dials, the Daytona Beach, the Meteorite, the Everose, the Platona, the Rainbow and many more. This book also provides a list of the dials that can be fitted to each reference and the alphanumeric codes stamped on the bracelet clasps. This most useful index of references will help you to easily find whatever watch you are looking for. The edition “Self-Winding Rolex Daytona” is accompanied by a booklet with updated valuations of all published watches, based on their condition.
