Often purchased through Asprey to be later delivered to dignitaries or friends, the Rolex made for the middle Eastern market are amongst the most collectible today due to their distinctive look and rarity. 2 versions were made for the UAE, both featuring the eagle with the signature of the King Mohammed bin Rashid Al Makhtoum and above the hour counter the signature of Wazarah Ad Dif'a department such as this one. Kept in immaculate condition and never offered on the market before, it is one of the most desirable manual wind Daytonas.
