Designer Rolex Watches
The Legend really earned its name tonight. Additionally to setting a "new world" record for just about any Rolex Daytona offered at auction, additionally, it grew to become the 2nd most costly Rolex Watches ever offered, behind the ref. 6062 "Bao Dai" that set the brand new overall world record for just about any Rolex just yesterday. (The Legend even finished well in front of the former runner-up, this ref. 4113 split-seconds.) Which means Phillips has offered the 3 most expensive Swiss Rolex Watches on the planet, in only twelve several weeks believe it or not, and number 1 and # 2 in just 24 hrs. Pretty good whatsoever.
The Rolex Reference 6062 just offered for $5,060,427, which makes it probably the best Rolex Submariner Watches at auction. The timepiece offered as like today's rolex submariner watches: Five, setting the "New Rolex World" record (as everybody expected).
This excellent ref. 6062 is special for several reasons. It's the only known illustration of the Swiss Rolex Submariner having a black dial and gemstone indexes, also it belonged towards the last emperor of Vietnam, who had been quite the type. Many expected it to interrupt the Designer Rolex Datejust record (held with a split-seconds chronograph ref. 4113 offered by Phillips just 12 several weeks ago), however the Bao Dai smashed beyond the CHF 2.5 million mark immediately, and also the only unknown left was what lengths collectors would choose this watch.
