I admit that I didnít really dig this reference even just a few months ago.
But how I feel about it has changed.
Nice pick up, congratulations.

Indeed, Iíve seen this watch referred to by dealers as the Paul Newman dial. Any idea why?

Pretty much anything with contrasting solid colored sub dials gets called a PN these days. The particular one in the OP shares the same color scheme as the old yellow gold 6263/6264 which have been called PNs for a long time.
