PRE-OWNED WATCH CONDITION EXAMINATION

This Rolex watch is in overall very good condition with some wear to the clasp, bracelet and bezel. Dial appears slightly aged and bracelet has abrasions due to continuous wear and light stretch.

ROLEX DAYTONA 16523 Zenith Movement

By Paul Altieri

Before the Cosmograph Daytona was powered by an in-house movement, it relied on the Zenith "El Primero" cal. 4030. This movement was outsourced and then modified in-house to beat at a rate of 28,800 bph and to remove the date mechanism. Before the Zenith movement was introduced to the Daytona collection, the iconic chronograph was only available with a manual-winding movement. Needless to say, this edition of the Rolex Daytona has since become a highly prized collector's item on the secondary market. Reference 16523 is a handsome steel and gold example of the cult favorite Zenith Rolex Daytona that displays the time on a sharp black dial. Add it to your watch box today before it's gone!

    100% as Advertised

    This is my third purchase from Bob's, and, as with the previous two, the experience could not have been better. All of the watches are exactly as advertised, look better than the pictures, and operate perfectly. With two of the watches, I've had to order additional links. The service in both cases was excellent.

    I have made several purchases and one sales through Bob’s. The order process, payment, processing, and most importantly delivery have all been absolutely flawless. Very quick and efficient. I never look anywhere else for used Rolex.
