Eric Clapton’s Rolex Sells for $1.4 Million

The exceedingly rare Rolex Reference 6263 “Oyster Albino” Cosmograph Daytona that once belonged to guitar icon Eric Clapton, which I describe in detail here, went up for auction yesterday in Geneva. And it smashed every record for any Rolex watch ever sold at auction, setting a new world record by hammering for the price of more than $1.4 million (including buyer’s premium).This “Albino” Reference 6263 was manufactured in 1971.
