James & Sons President Attends Iconic Rolex Daytona Auction

John C. Sunderland, the President of your local Chicago jewelry stores, James & Sons, recently had the privilege of attending an auction devoted solely to a specific, and special, Rolex model. Sunderland says, “It takes a very special watch brand to have a top auction house devote an entire sale to it. A few months ago, Christie’s in Geneva devoted an entire sale exclusively to one very special watch model, the iconic Rolex Daytona. Fifty Daytonas were offered and fifty were sold, for just over $13,000,000. A highlight of the evening was a Stainless Steel “Paul Newman” Daytona that sold for over $1,000,000!” The video below captures the excitement of the evening well!

James & Sons may not have a $1,000,000 “Paul Newman” Daytona available at our stores, but we do have plenty of other Rolex options available at our locations in Chicago, Orland Park, and Schererville. Rolex is an iconic name in watches for a reason – after all, no watch sells for $1,000,000 without something special to recommend it. Rolex wearers have many reasons for loving their watches. Some love the classic elegance a Rolex adds to any formal occasion. Others love a modern Rolex that can take any outfit to the next level of fashion. Whatever their reasons for loving it are, Rolex owners know they can count on their watches to keep precise time, impress their family and friends, and never go out of style. James & Sons is proud to offer a wide variety of Rolex watches for men and women, whether your sensibilities are classic or modern. Stop by our jewelry store in Northwest Indiana, or try our Orland Park and Chicago locations in Illinois, and find the right Rolex for you or a loved one today.
