    The History of The Paul Newman Watch

    In 1961 Rolex released the Cosmograph. It was named after man’s quest for the cosmos. The watch was one of Rolex’s least popular watches but not all hope was lost. Eight years later an actor named Paul Newman starred in a movie called “Winning,” where he played a racecar driver. During the move Paul wore a Rolex watch that many believed to be the Rolex Daytona.

    Paul Newman was later on the cover of an Italian magazine where he was once again spotted wearing a Rolex. This time people were convinced that it was the Rolex Daytona. No one knows exactly how these watches inherited the name Paul Newman. Some say it was the local Rolex dealers who capitalized on the celebrities status to sell more watches. Whatever the reason, the Paul Newman is one of the most coveted watches for collectors everywhere.
