Lot 5 — Rolex Daytona Ref. 116519
Normally seen in steel, this circa 2000 automatic chronograph is made in 18K white gold and runs 40mm wide. "A burgeoning watch collector, particularly one interested in vintage pieces, should look for brand name, rarity, condition, and complications (like the 12-hour and 30-minute registers here) when building his collection," said Nate Borgelt, a specialist in Watches & Clocks for Sotheby's. Estimate: $8,000 to $12,000.
