    When ROLEX’s Daytona is added with a little ‘dotted’, it will definitely catch the eye, this is the Ref. 6241 of LOT 45. Because the dial was engraved with TIFFANY & Co., the price suddenly soared to an unintelligible level. It’s just an ordinary Daytona chronograph, Cal 722 hand-wound winding movement, 17 rubies, Breguet-style hairspring, 3-way adjustment. In fact, ROLEX models have not significantly changed the appearance of their watches over the years, which has also caused an increase in the audience. After all, if the watch from decades ago looks similar to today, it will not have any negative impact due to the change of the aesthetics of the times. It may be that the auction system for this type of ordinary Daytona is not too mature, so it only gives a maximum cap of $ 60,000. However, the actual transaction price was more than 110,000 US dollars. Let everyone once again appreciate the appreciation of investment space of Daytona. Gold watches have always been an element of high-end products in the watch industry. After all, making watches with precious metal materials is an important indicator for each brand to position its product line. Any complicated watch will be represented by precious metals. Someone once joked that the ‘starter’ mentality of gold watches only prevails in the Mainland. In fact, otherwise, gold watches still have works close to art, and they can be accepted worldwide.
