Rolex decided to launch the Zenith series of Daytonas in 1988. Taking advantage of the increased size of the case from 37 to 40 mm, these models came equipped with the legendary 4030 caliber with Zenith El Primero ebauche. The present Daytona is a reference 16 520 which means that its case and bracelet are entirely made in stainless steel. Preserved in NOS conditions, this specimen left the Rolex manufacture in 2000 and impresses for the quality of its case and rare black dial. This 16 520 is a very nice one for its well-preserved case and original bracelet and it’s special black dial. Moreover it’s sold with its original warranty and the sticker on the case back.
