Rolex “Zenith” Daytona ref 16528 18K YG circa 1997

SOLD

Contemporary classic Rolex “Zenith” Daytona 18K YG ref 16528 U5 serial# circa 1997.  39mm diameter case with 18K YG tachometer bezel and sapphire crystal. With original gloss black dial with gold register surrounds. Powered by 3 registers automatic Zenith calibre movement. With Rolex 18K YG heavy Oyster bracelet with solid end links and short flip lock clasp.

This is the first self winding Daytona model, produced until 1999 with the Zenith movement until Rolex introduced their own in house movement with reference # 116528. The Zenith and Rolex models feature slightly different dial configurations. The most recognizable characteristic distinguish the Rolex from the Zenith is the location of the constant seconds register; at 6 o’clock on the Rolex, and 9 o’clock on the Zenith. The current model is very desirable with the black dial with gold register surrounds, but further more by having the flip lock clasp on the bracelet, which the first Zenith models lacked.

A very clean and desirable model. Sorry no papers, but a period Rolex box can be provided.
