    James Cox: The man who sold Paul Newman’s Daytona (yes, that one)


    James Cox: The man who sold Paul Newman’s Daytona (yes, that one)

    On the 26th of October, 2017, after 12 minutes of bidding, a Rolex Daytona reference 6239 that belonged to legendary actor Paul Newman was sold for $17,752,500 USD (including premiums). It’s widely regarded as the most significant watch auction to date, not just for the hammer price achieved, but for the significance of the watch. In the room was James Cox, who, for decades, wore that watch on his wrist.

    That was nearly three years ago now, so we thought it was high time to catch up with James and revisit the story of ‘Paul Newman’s Paul Newman’, how it ended up on James’ wrist. We talk about what he’s done with the millions of dollars (hint: making the world a better place), why even he can’t get a new Daytona at retail, and what watch has replaced the most famous Rolex in the world.

    This episode is made possible by Swiss Typefaces.
