PT Daytona VS PN Daytona

So if you had to choose .. Wich one would you take ? Think we all know wich one will be the favorite but i'm still curious to see what the opinions will be from everyone.



Cheers

I must say the PLN Daytona - then I'd start saving for the 50th Anniv. Platinum Daytona.

Sort of the Alpha-Omega of my Daytona spectrum...

PT....

Parts for PN are getting scarce. Few year ago the teeth on the ratchet wheel in my PN broke. My certified watchmaker had a difficult time finding an original Rolex ratchet wheel; he eventually found one and did a R&R.

I'd go with the PT. The PN is a great piece of history, though, and I completely understand why it is hugely popular.

Cheers!

PT. I believe we wont see high sales and it may stop production early (like vintage milgauss) and it will have a higher price in say 20 years after production

The PN for me as well.


But this would certainly be a concern for me, and I would want to make sure parts would not be a problem before getting one.

although I love the vintage, it is also smaller. Love the weight on the platinum but not crazy about the ceramic bezel. tough one.

Yes this 6263 screw down PN is twice the price. In fact mint ones if you can find one(which isn't likely anyway)are now selling for even more than twice the price.
