Rolex Daytona Cosmograph Gold & Steel ref. 16523 Diamond indices Serviced & Polished, Zenith movement, X-Serial

21,399 

The Rolex Daytona is widely regarded as an icon in the world of luxury watches, and it’s not at all difficult to see why. It offers a timeless design backed by superb underlying functionality that traces its roots to a vibrant and exciting racing heritage. What’s more, the state of the grey market indicates you couldn’t sell your Daytona at a loss even if you wanted to, so you could always tell your wife it was an investment.
The particular ref. 16523 on offer here sports a lustrous golden dial adorned with diamond hour markers and contrasting subdials. The case and bracelet combine steel and gold elements, which underlines its affluent demeanour yet manages to preserve its sporty aesthetic. On the wrist, the watch is unmistakably recognizable as Rolex’s renowned chronograph since it follows the design of its iconic predecessors to the letter, including the red Daytona script – a reference to the “Big Red” Daytona of 1985.
It should be noted that this reference is powered by a modification of Zenith’s El Primero and not Rolex’s later in-house movement.
Our offering is in excellent condition – just serviced and polished per OEM specs. Comes as watch only.

The watch is covered by 1 year of limited warranty from ChronoTimepieces.

All our watches undergo a thorough inspection and are sold in fully-authentic condition. Naturally, this includes all external and internal components. They are also serviced where needed and tested for waterproofness where it applies.

Vintage watches are checked against our database of original examples to ensure no components have been replaced or tampered with over the years, and they are serviced using strictly OEM parts. It’s no secret that most vintage watches sold online are re-dialed, overpolished, or feature movement parts with questionable origins, and those are all practices we sincerely abhor.

You can rest assured that any exceptions to the above will be disclosed in the respective timepiece’s descriptive text.

ChronoTimepieces’s service including, without limitation, our website, all information, content and any features made available to you through our Site are provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis. Our directors, employees, agents, partners and content providers do not warrant that the service will be secure or available at any particular time or location.
Unless agreed otherwise in an individual case, ChronoTimepieces does not give any guarantees as to the characteristics of the goods which go beyond the statutory warranty rights or any other warranties.

  • All our watches come with a limited warranty of 1 year, starting on the date of purchase. The cover of said warranty is limited to the function, continuous operation and fair timekeeping and it does not cover misuse, neglect, abuse, water damage or any other form of wearer-inflicted damage.
  • Some used watches might still be covered by leftover Manufacturer warranty valid to any AD (Authorized Dealer) – please check the specific description of the watch you are buying.
  • Some new watches might be covered by Manufacturer warranty, usually activated upon purchase and valid to any AD (Authorized Dealer) – please check the specific description of the watch you are buying.
  • For vintage watches (we consider any watch older than 20 years vintage) time keeping is guaranteed within reasonable limits – ±20 sec/day, unless explicitly stated otherwise in the item’s description.

Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item’s price or in the shipping cost. These charges will occur at your own expense.

Note

Please ensure all the information is correct when providing your shipping details during checkout. We may have to contact you if there is any missing information or incorrect data. Delays may also occur due to pending payment verifications or customs clearance.

Each item sold by ChronoTimepieces is covered by a no-questions-asked 14 day inspection period, unless otherwise stated in the description of the purchased item. The item, however, must remain unworn and unmolested within that period of time – and in the same condition that it left our offices. If a return is requested, simply email info@chronotimepieces.com and we will respond with instructions. Insured shipping for returns must be paid for by the buyers and buyers assume all risk for it. A before and after video comparison and inspection is required before returns are cleared.

Consequence Of Cancellation

In the event of an effective return of order, the price of the purchased item/s will be returned to you. The shipping costs for returning the item will occur at your own expense and will be deducted from your refund. Shipping costs are non-­refundable.

The payment will be refunded via the same payment method that had been used by you in the original purchase if not explicitly agreed otherwise with you. ChronoTimepieces will not charge any cost associated with refunding the money.

In the case of deterioration of the purchased items, attributable to handling the goods in a manner which goes beyond testing their qualities and functioning, you owe a compensation to ChronoTimepieces. “Testing their qualities and functioning” shall be understood to mean testing and trying out the purchased items in a manner which is possible and usual, for example, in a physical store.
