Fresh on the wrist - 1991 Daytona 16520 White Inverted 6

Finally added a Daytona to the line-up! Huge thanks to Tim and TRF

Initially I was looking to build out my Transitional line up with a 16550 to add to the 16800 and 16750 but had to agree with a comment TJ made "If you want a Daytona now, 5 years, 10 years from now you'll still want one"


X-Serial
came with a later 78390 which I swapped out for this Hodinkee Racer to avoid home office desk scratching as it's surely going to see some serious wrist time.

Congrats!

What's the original bracelet it was delivered on, instead of the 78390?

It was delivered to me with a 78390 PML but would originally have been a fully matted 78360. I actually have another 78360 from a GMT which I just mocked up on there to imagine how it would look. I don't have any 503 endlinks and all the ones I see on C24 are $600+ which I can bring myself to pay for two pieces of pressed SS...

Contact a Rolex AD for the links. I would assume they can get those.
