If spending $27,000 on a new white gold Rolex Cosmograph Daytona like Crew Member Tandori did recently seems a bit decadent in these challenging economic times, consider picking up a used one like this leather band version we found on Portero. Here's the description:
"Form meets function with this gentleman's Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona watch, reference 116519. A round 18k white gold case with 18k white gold tachymeter bezel surrounds the black dial that houses the three sub dials of the chronograph; 30 minute register at 3, seconds register at 6 and 12 hour register at 9. A pair of silver and white hands marks the 44 jewel perpetual automatic 4130 caliber movement, which is shown through the applied diamond indicators as markers. Finishing this watch is the original Rolex black leather bracelet and 18k white folding clasp. This circa 2004 watch is in very good condition with minor scuffing on the case and case back and slight wear to the bracelet."
