Ayrton Senna’s 18K Gold Rolex Daytona Watch

Apr 10, 2019

Ayrton Senna might just be the greatest F1 driver of all time — living or dead. But as all top-tier athletes know, he didn’t get there alone. It could be argued that, without Angelo Parrilla (the man who discovered Senna), his career might not have been so fruitful. That’s why, as a thank you to Parilla, Senna gifted his mentor this 18K gold Rolex Daytona Chronograph. And now, it’s up for auction.

Even without Senna’s connection, this would be a spectacular Rolex with its gold case and matching bracelet, contrasting black-circled sub-dials, and 31-jewel automatic movement. But it is certainly bolstered by the connection to the racer — complete with an engraved case back featuring his name. And if the historic Rolex Daytona isn’t enough to make this auction enticing, it also comes with a signed photograph and helmet faceguard, a confirmation letter from Parilla himself, and even the original packaging. It won’t come cheap, however, as Phillips is expecting this chronograph to go for over $101,000.

Purchase: $101,000+
