Notes

Rolex, “Daytona”, Ref. 116520, “APH” dial

Nicknamed by collectors the "APH" dial due to the last few letters of the word "Cosmograph" that are detached from the rest of the word.

Made for a few years only before being corrected, this version is now sought after by collectors.

The watch has never been worn, still featuring its protective sealed sticker.
