[Comment]
    Paul Newman is a miracle. I believe everyone will agree, especially at auctions. Among them, Paul Newman, a good-quality gold case, performed even more. LOT 44 is a case in point. In fact, there are many other models of Paul Newman, each of which sell for jaw-dropping prices. ROLEX does not make complicated models in modern times, which is also a well-known thing. Therefore, the Daytona chronograph in its mass production models can already be considered a ‘complex watch’ by ROLEX. This Ref. 6241 Daytona chronograph by Paul Newman was produced in the 1970s with an 18K yellow gold case, a Cal 727 hand-wound movement, 17 rubies, and 3-way adjustment. The appearance is well preserved. Just such a chronograph, it turned out to be sold for more than 110,000 US dollars. Is there no such return on any investment?
Gold watches have always been an element of high-end products in the watch industry. After all, making watches with precious metal materials is an important indicator for each brand to position its product line. Any complicated watch will be represented by precious metals. Someone once joked that the ‘starter’ mentality of gold watches only prevails in the Mainland. In fact, otherwise, gold watches still have works close to art, and they can be accepted worldwide.
