Paul New­man’s Rolex Paul New­man Day­tona, Ref 6239 Auc­tioned by Phillips in New York for US$ 17.7 mil­lion ( RM72.7 mil­lion).

A12-minute bid­ding war set a new world record for any wrist­watch at auc­tion, where the Rolex Paul New­man Cos­mo­graph Day­tona - owned and worn by New­man - far ex­ceeded its es­ti­mate of US$1 mil­lion. It is re­garded as one of the world’s most sought-af­ter and col­lectible of all me­chan­i­cal wrist­watches. The in­scrip­tion ‘Drive care­fully, Me’ on its case­back was cho­sen by Joanne Wood­ward to tem­per her hus­band’s need for speed. www.phillip­swatches.com
