Antiques Roadshow is a very popular show in the USA. In the most recent one, an perfect Rolex Daytona replica watch which was bought at 345 dollars was estimated in 500,000 – 700,000 dollars. It means that the value of this model has increased nearly 2000 times after 40 years.
The owner of this precious Rolex knockoff watch is an American veteran who bought in Nov.11 of 1974. At that time, the Daytona with this style was not as popular as other models. He never thought the underselling Daytona became so popular now. It is difficult to buy such a Paul Newman Daytona.
According to the American veteran, when he bought this Rolex Daytona, he just tried it on and then put it in the strongbox. The original reservation ticket, sales voucher, birth certificate, warranty certificate, instruction manual, watch box, and even the outer packaging were completely kept. This precious Daytona looks like new model.
