Second Paul Newman Rolex Daytona



Paul Newman 

Rolex Daytona

"BIG RED" Daytona Reference 6263

Coming to Auction with Philipps

Looking back in the rear-view mirror it was probably easy to surmise it was just a matter of time before Paul Newman's second Rolex Daytona came to the auction market as Philipps just announced they will soon be auctioning this second "Paul Newman Daytona Grail". I plan to publish a deep dive on this magnificent Rolex Daytona watch soon so stay tuned...This is going to be a fascinating holiday season...

And yes, I was the first to document and showcase the fact that Paul Newman's daughter Clea Newman owned and was wearing her father's second Rolex Daytona [Reference 6263] watch back on October 24, 2017.

"Dad gave it (his Rolex Daytona) to me straight from his wrist...and it had been given to him by my mother (Joanne Woodward), so although it is his watch, it is also somehow hers too, which makes it very much the most precious thing I own." 
—Clea Newman (Paul Newman's youngest daughter)
