The most expensive Rolex model ever sold is on the market at a relatively affordable price: the vintage watch will set you back no more than a three-year-old Ferrari 488.
In 2017, Paul Newman’s Rolex Daytona sold for a whopping $17.8 million, setting a record for a wristwatch at Phillips auction. When the hammer came down at Phillips auction house in New York after 12 minutes of nerve-wracking paddle raising, more than 400 people witnessed a telephone bidder become the proud owner of Paul Newman’s Rolex.
The legendary watch attracted both connoisseurs and motorsport enthusiasts, and high net worth individuals with a penchant for Hollywood memorabilia.
When the wristwatch went to auction, James Cox – a former boyfriend of Newman’s daughter Nell – had owned it since 1984, when Newman gave it to him. At that time, the model retailed for around $200.
It took all but a few weeks for the most expensive boatshed offered for sale in Australia to sell. The Point Piper boat shed traded for $30 million only four years ago making it the most expensive property sold this year.

The two-storey boatshed is set on almost 2,000 square metres with Harbourside swimming pool, one of the largest private marina berths and a DA to convert it into a house.
