The John Player Special

Feb 19, 2017,03:52 AM

As you can see. This cigarette brand has a history with formula 1 during the 60s and 70s. Some amazing racing genes as illustrated on the choice of colors they use. It is at this same period Rolex made of of the most amazing chronograph know as the DAYTONA. An icon that needs no further introduction. From 1966 to 1969, only a few thousands of the ref 6241 daytona was made. Mostly in steel. But a few hundred was made in yellow gold. One in particular has a black dial with the sexy Paul Newman dial. The Italian later call it " JOHN PLAYER SPECIAL" due to it resemblance to the race cars color tone.

To me one of the most desirable time piecs of all time. What do u think? Iceman

I am just very lucky to be able to find these watches and to meet so many great people at the same time.

Iceman, this YG 6241 Paul Newman is just breathtaking.

I am not a-totally crazy about Daytonas PN. A true minefield that you can pay cash, more than other references, but when I face Beauty, it is always a total and intense pleasure. Yours is just superb. One detail, with its YG bracelet, it is even nicer. Th... 

Thanks Nikolas
