Paul Newman‘s beloved Rolex Daytona watches have made huge impressions at auctions, racking up sale prices of $3,717,906 USD and $17,752,500 USD just last year. Now, an 18K yellow gold Daytona 6264 in the style preferred by the legendary actor has surfaced for sale, with a comparatively affordable price tag of £1 million GBP (approximately $1.3 million USD).

Though this watch wasn’t actually owned by Newman, it carries the vintage characteristics that the actor sought out in watches, which make it particularly uncommon; it’s only the fifth 6264 of this style to ever hit the market. Well-preserved and in excellent condition, the timepiece sports a unique lemon dial indicative of its age. Experts refer to the watch’s pump pushers and lack of any Oyster branding as a confirmation that it’s one of Rolex’s earlier 6264 models, produced in the brief span between 1969 and ‘72.

Get a closer look at the rare specimen over on Xupes’s website.

For a less ornate watch, take a look at OMEGA’s denim-inspired Railmaster.
