This past weekend saw a record breaking sale of a very special Rolex. We're talking about the "Bao Dai" Reference 6062, which went on sale in Geneva and was estimated to go for over $1.5 million dollars. Well, it went for much more than that as the watch sold for a gargantuan $5,060,427 making it the most expensive Rolex to ever be sold at auction.
As for why it's so special, the watch is a very rare yellow gold triple calendar with moonphase on a black dial. Only three black dials with diamond are known to be in existence and this one was owned by Nguyễn Phúc Vĩnh Thụy, better known as Bao Dai, the last emperor of Vietnam.
