Rolex Daytona Wristwatch at LOST

Lost is the American serial drama television series that follows the lives of plane crash survivors on a mysterious tropical island, after a commercial passenger jet flying between Sydney and Los Angeles crashes somewhere in the South Pacific.

Season 6 premiered on February 2, 2010, at its new timeslot of Tuesdays at 9:00 pm in the US and Canada and will feature 18 episodes. The sixth season follows two timelines, each an outcome of the detonation of a hydrogen bomb in the previous season finale.

One of the series’ main characters, Jin-Soo Kwon, was given, at the beginning of the series, two identical Rolex Wristwatches; two Rolex Daytona.

Two identical gold Rolex watches were given to Jin by Mr. Paik to deliver to business associates in Sydney, Australia and Los Angeles, California. Jin delivered the first one, but crashed on the Island before he could deliver the second one.

Michael found the remaining watch on the beach and decided to wear it. When Jin saw this, he attacked Michael. After Sun explained to Michael why Jin acted the way he did, Michael gave the watch back to him. After the second raft was launched, Jin returned the watch to Michael.

After returning to New York, Michael pawned the watch at Gus’ Pawn Shop in exchange for a revolver in an attempt to take his life. Gus noticed the watch’s Korean inscription: “Congratulations… mutual cooperation… business development… Mr. Paik”

Rolex watches are popularly regarded as status symbols and BusinessWeek magazine ranks Rolex #71 on its 2007 annual list of the 100 most valuable global brands. Rolex is also the largest single luxury watch brand by far, producing about 2,000 watches per day

There are two series of the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona. The original series, produced in small quantities from the early 1960s to the later 1980s, has a four-digits model or reference number, for example the reference 6263. This original series eventually became iconic[vague] but in very short supply in the early 1990s, which led to a second series to meet demand. The second series has a six-digit reference number, for example reference 116520. The new six-digit Daytonas are certified, self-winding chronometers with chronograph functions. Rolex was, and remains today, a sponsor of the 24 Hours of Daytona race at the time, and named its chronograph watch after that famous race.

Due to its limited production and iconic status, the four digit series Rolex Cosmograph Daytona is considered a rare watch to own.
