There is one reason we don’t see many of these folks. Do we have any here ???? This being a place where most models are held.

This watch came as a full set and is from 1988 R7 serial so defiantly one of the very first 16520’s. As it was this watch which send me Rolex crazy in the early days it is very special to me and sits like royalty within my collection.l

All time classic. Question to the forum: is there a view if the Zenith Daytona’s will maintain if not increase in collector desirability in the coming years? I’ve seen lukewarm feedback online and recently in discussions with some dealers, but history has...
Thank you for your reply.
I’ve not experienced Luke warm reaction to the 16520 In fact the opposite and 16520’s becoming hotter than ever. Interesting question though and a similar one to the Patek Lemania V in-house. My thoughts are the Lemania will continue to climb in demand as...
Great Daytona Miles ...
And your absolutely right about it being overlooked recently within our community. Personally I love this model, in design terms it’s difficult to improve on. ...

I love the Zenith and the in-house. Great watches. This is my regular wearer and I’ve swum in it in Ibiza, Qatar and Dubai in the past six months. Never drops a second! R ...
i do not own
because it is not my kind of watch. For the money, i know watches who fit me better. I am not a swagger, so my interest goes to Vacheron Constantin for example. Enjoy my watches on my own way.
I have a couple.
Sadly I have not worn them in years I prefer the sub, sea dwellerAnd most of all GMT the best ...
Sure are Bill.
But I want to demonstrate just how rare they are. Might be a handful at best. I have seen a few later 16520’s with floating dials but very few R7 with Porcelain dials. For me it is only the very first 16520’s that are true Porcelain dials due to the proce...
We have all sold with regret.
But the most important thing is you stuck with your gut feeling. I think this is such an important quality of a collector. I actually really like the Gold version but the right opportunity never happened to buy one at the right price. M.
Nico maybe stash somewhere?
i know one moderator at TRF has one HL65? not here though, i have one but not porcelain, R series floating daytona. I just wore it this weekend.
But got an unpolished P-serial WG one here, one of the last Zenith ones: ...
