Eric Clapton’s Rolex “Albino” Daytona was sold for $505.000 during Sotheby’s Important Watches Auction.


In 2008, during Sotheby’s Important Watches Auction a very rare Rolex model called the “Albino” Rolex Daytona produced in 1971. This watch was formerly owned by musician Eric Clapton.

Eric Clapton was born in 30th March, 1945. Eric is an English blues-rock guitarist, singer, songwriter and composer, inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as part of the Yardbirds, then Cream and also as a solo performer. He was often considered to be by critics and fans as one of a kind musician, one of the greatest guitarists of all time. Clapton was ranked fourth in Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” and #53 on their list of the Immortals: 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.

Even though this wristwatch was supposed to reach a price between $100.000 – $150.000, according to estimations made by watch experts. It was sold for $505.000.
Nicknamed “Albino” because of the monochrome silver colour of its back round and subsidiary dial, it wasn’t quite popular between the Daytona models.
