Daytona race winner’s Rolex prize goes up for auction

on November 26 2015 | in Cars & Watches | by | with Comments Off

Auction house Bonhams expects a Rolex Daytona wristwatch (above) won by American racing driver Michael Lauer to fetch around $NZ100,000 when it goes up for grabs in HongKong next week.

The watch is named after the 24-hour motor race in Florida. Lauer, once the racing partner of the late Hollywood star Paul Newman, teamed with Trans-Am champions Paul Gentilozzi, Brian Simo and Scott Pruett in 2002 to win their class in a Jaguar XKR. Part of the prize for each driver was a Daytona Cosmograph.

Aside from its trophy status among racing drivers, the Rolex Daytona is considered the very icon of the racing chronograph – and one of the most coveted of Rolex watches, especially with the so-called ‘Paul Newman dial’, an original design limited to rare early versions.
