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
