The Rolex Daytona "Paul Newman"

Due to the coolness of Mr Paul Newman italian collectors started to call his “Exotic” Daytona giving the nickname Paul Newman. From origin Rolex asked their dial maker Singer to produce a special run chronograph dials because those where not selling quite well back in the days. The successful flight to the moon with the Omega Speedmaster was working negatively for the sales of the Rolex Daytona. Due to the oil crisis made the racing imago wasn’t very populair and Rolex needed to come up with something new. Except the development by Singer of the “Exotic” dial, Rolex developed the “screw down oyster-waterproof” pusher making their Daytona Cosmograph a sales hit.
