Watch news! Earlier this week, a 1969 “John Player Special” Rolex hammered for $1.5m. It’s nowhere near a world record Rolex. In October 2017, Paul Newman’s Rolex Daytona fetched $17.75m. Still, it’s a pretty penny for a rare watch commemorating Rolex’s sponsorship of the John Player Special Formula 1 team. How rare? Our man @perezscope called out Hodinkee on their inaccurate account of the sale . . .
