Baguette Diamond Daytona

Set 2009 Auction Record of $315,000

The Antiquorum Auction house in Switzerland set an auction record in April of 2009, when the price realized for an 18kt gold Rolex Daytona was auctioned for $315,000.00 (U.S. dollars). Of course, the record has been broken many times since then, but I thought it would be interesting to take a look back at this Rolex auction record from 10 years ago.

This very interesting looking Daytona [Reference 6270/6263] was made in 1985 and has 28 baguettes surrounding the bezel along with 240 diamonds and 9 sapphire indices on the bezel. I believe this one of a kind Rolex watch was custom made for the Sultan Of Oman.
