Both lots have been consigned to Sotheby’s by Joanne Woodward personally but, of the two, only this ref. 116519 was gifted by Joanne to Paul. In fact, this particular 1:1 replica Rolex Daytona not only is the last Daytona she gifted to Newman, but also the only Daytona in a precious metal. Of all Paul Newman’s personal Rolex Daytona fake watches online, this is the most modern with a production date of 2006. Before his death in 2008, Newman can notably be seen photographed wearing the watch while watching his Newman-Hass team race at the Indy 500 and during his famous Barbara Walters interview in 2007, as well as in 2008 taking his final laps at a private event at Lime Rock Park on August 13, 2008 just over a month before his death. This is truly the last perfect replica Rolex Daytona the legendary actor ever wore.
His wife Joanne’s inscriptions on the casebacks of the cheap fake Rolex Daytonas she gifted him are known for their recurring theme of wanting him to be safe while driving and racing. The first of the Daytonas gifted to her husband was inscribed with the message “Drive Carefully, Me”, the next “Drive Slowly, Joanne”, and this last and final aaa quality replica Rolex Daytona “Drive Very Slowly, Joanne”. Ultimately each watch conveys her enduring love for her husband throughout their 50 years together. Like the previous “Zenith” Daytona, the condition of the watch can be described as worn but loved with minor markings that add character rather than detract from the integrity of the timepiece. As it was put by Vice President, Head of Important Watch Sales and Specialist Leigh Safar: “These very special Swiss movement fake Rolex Daytonas worn by Paul Newman embody the everlasting love he shared with his wife, Joanne, as well as his love for racing. It represents a part of his legacy marrying the worlds of Hollywood and motorsport – and injects a bit of that romance to the world of high quality copy watches.”
