Why are there so few real Paul Newmans? Human greed is the answer.

What is the exact amount? There are some variations, but in general a pump-pusher with a dial that is normal will cost around USD40,000. A 6241 Daytona retails at around USD40,000 while a Newman dial ref. 6241 is usually sold between USD150,000 and USD175,000. The premium is even higher when it comes to Daytona screw-pusher.

Another reason why there are so many fakes is because it's very difficult, if you can call it that, to authenticate a Paul Newman dial Daytona. The watches were sold without any documentation identifying them as Exotic Dial Daytonas. (The name "Newman Dial" was given to the watch only in the 1980s.) The watches looked amazing, but they were a huge failure. At least 20 Daytonas with normal dials were sold for every Paul Newman. Dealers could swap out dials, even if the watches had a Newman dial. This made it difficult to define what an original Paul Newman Daytona was.
What is the highest level of authentication possible? The watch must have the box, papers and an original dealer receipt stating it was an exotic dial model. It should also include Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver Replica Watches service receipts stating this watch is an exotic dial Daytona for the past 40 years. Unfortunately, this level of documentation is only found in less than 1% of watches.
