More about Rolex 16520 PATRIZZI Daytona SS Black Dial Zenith FULL SET

This is a stainless steel Rolex Patrizzi Daytona Cosmograph 16520. It has an integral stainless steel 78990 bracelet with 503B end links, a double deployant clasp, and a scratch resistant sapphire crystal. There is a Triplock winding crown protected by shoulder crown guards, and there are screw-down round chronograph pushbuttons. The 40mm diameter solid three body case, gently curved lugs, link bracelet, and wide fixed bezel with a tachymeter scale to 400 UPH are polished/brushed. The Patrizzi dial is black with applied luminous "boat" baton polished hour index markers, luminous polished steel baton hands with luminous inserts, and a center sweep chronograph hand with an arrow pointer. Around the perimeter is a white luminous minute/one-fifth second track. There are three recessed brown-patinated Patrizzi gold-rimmed subsidiary dials, including a running small seconds register at 9 o'clock, a 12-hour chronograph totalizer at 6 o'clock, and there is a 30-minute totalizer at 3 o'clock. It has a Certified Official Superlative Chronometer (COSC) rating, and it's water resistant to 100 meters/330 feet.

This Rolex Daytona Cosmograph 16520 has an automatic self-winding Zenith El Primero caliber 4030 (Zenith base 400) movement. It's rhodium-plated, with oeil-de-perdrix embellishment. It's constructed with 31 jewels, a blue Parachrom hairspring, an Incabloc shock absorber device, and a straight-line lever escapement. It includes a monometallic balance that's adjusted to temperatures and 5 positions, a self-compensating free-sprung Breguet balance spring, and Microstella regulating screws. The mechanism oscillates at a frequency of 36,000 vph (5Hz).

The Rolex Daytona Cosmograph 16520 first debuted in 1988. The Italian auctioneer Osvaldo Patrizzi discovered the anomaly of the brown patinated subdials in 2005.
