Model nr: 16520 - Zenith
In today’s watch world – new, pre-owned and vintage – one model is sure to get pulses racing like no other. Whatever its reference – from the Newmans to the Zeniths – the Daytona is the most lusted-after, the most coveted and the most commercially successful Rolex model around.
The last of the 16520 Zenith dials is the MK5, which is very similar to the MK4. This version has very few serifs on the text, as per the MK4. The most obvious difference is the move from using tritium to Super-LumiNova for the filling of the hour markers, which is denoted in the lack of Ts in the signing at the bottom of the dial that now reads “SWISS MADE”.
The Zenith movement is Ultra collectible.
