A very fine and rare stainless steel manual wind 'Paul Newman' Rolex circa 1969 topped Bonhams' Fine Watches & Wristwatches auction on December 4. First appearing in the early 1960s, the 'exotic' or 'tropical' dial was renamed the 'Paul Newman' by Italian collectors after the American actor wore the watch in promotional posters for the film 'Winning. Realizing twice as much as the nearest earning lot, the Rolex took £69,700.
