Notes

Part of the first series of Daytona’s launched in 1988, this reference 16528 has what is known as a four-line diamond index dial due to the words officially certified that were left out on these early examples. Also found with porcelain dials, this white dial has been kept in excellent condition as well as the case that even still has some left over caseback sticker.
