The Rolex Daytona is the most desirable watch in the world along side the Patek Nautilus. People might love it or hate it but 2 things no one can argue. The importance of the Daytonas history and the fact no one could get it anyway even if they wanted to.
The one thing the Daytona has over this watch is marketing. While Rolex is king at marketing Blancpain seems to fall behind. That said, that wasn’t always the case for the brand. Back in 1983 Jean Claude Biver and his friend Jacques Piguet bought the rights back to the Blancpain name.
