Many horologist affinities toward watches did not start at their own lifetime. Perhaps what sparked their interest was a heirloom timepiece whose lifetime surpasses their owners’. Take Paul Newman’s Daytona, the watch was sold at an auction in 2017 for 17.75 million USD. The watch was originally a gift from Newman’s wife, complete with a beautiful and heartfelt engraving on the back. After wearing it for 15 years, Newman gifted the highly-coveted vintage watch to his daughter, Clea Newman.
