The quality of this 16 523 is stunning with perfectly well preserved crisp case and screw down pushers, such as the Oyster bracelet and the yellow gold graduated bezel. The glamorous Champagne dial with black subsidiary dials for the chronograph is mint but the main peculiarity that makes this watch absolutely desirable are the ten letters slightly above the hands. Their composition creates the important retailer and jeweler name Tiffany & Co. In fact, Daytonas, or any model, bearing the prestigious name of New York retailer on the dial are an exceedingly rare breed. Preserved in like new old stock condition, with also the Sticker fixed to the case back which confirms its small use, this watch is sold full set with box, papers and the original invoice of Tiffany & Co. New York’s boutique.
