Notes

Dial, case and movement signed. DIAM. 40 mm. THICKNESS 12 mm. Following the instant success of the Daytona beach which was instantly sold out when announced in 2001, most watches were sold on the Italian market. Having never appeared at auction and complete with their original box and warranties, this exceptional set of Daytonas beach with diamond bezel is a fantastic addition to the discerning modern Daytona collector. According to our research, we know of only 8 others so far with this configuration.
