On June 9, 2023, Sotheby’s New York will hold a “precious famous watch” auction. The auction will show two grand Rolex Di Tong watches at that time. Paul Newman owned both best replica watches; the latter is a legendary Hollywood movie star and a famous racer.
It is worth mentioning that Rolex watches with the highest auction transactions in history have an inseparable connection with Paul Newman. In 2017, FILS took a Rolex Ref.6239 “Paul Newman” Ditong watch for $ 17.75 million (at the exchange rate, equivalent to RMB 120 million), setting a world record.
This year, Sotheby’s auction will auction two Rolex watches that once belonged to Paul Newman. The first is Ref.16520 “True Time” Di Tong. In 1995, the 70-year-old Paul Newman participated in the Tongtong 24-hour endurance race, becoming the oldest holding cup driver in history (his team won the GT-1 championship).
As an event sponsor, Rolex presented this watch to Paul Newman. The watched watch is engraved with the words “ROLEX At Daytona 24 Paul Newman Rolex Motorsports Man of the year 1995”, and the auction is valued at 500,000 to 1 million US dollars.
The second is Ref.116519 Bai Jindi Tong’s watch. Sotheby’s revealed that this swiss replica watch was produced in 2006 and was the only Bucking Dutong watch that Paul Newman had. It is said that this is also the last Ditong watch (2006) that Joanne Woodward gave to Paul Newman.
On August 13, 2008, Paul Newman wore this watch and appeared on the limestone park track. The eyes are engraved with the words “Drive Very Slowly Joanne,” with an auction valuation of 500,000 to $ 1 million.
