The watch is to be auctioned off by Phillips in Geneva this May. All proceeds will be donated to Children Action

It is a Rolex Cosmograph Daytona reference 6265 in white gold, created in 1970 for a German customer. It's nicknamed "The Unicorn," and scholars believe it may be a one-off creation.

Up until about 10 years ago it was thought that Rolex only made the manual wind Daytona in stainless steel or yellow gold.  But  now this ultra-rare piece is finally being made available to the public.

This unique Daytona is expected to make in excess of  three million Swiss Francs when it goes up for auction for the first time during the 'Daytona Ultimatum' sale in Geneva.  The seller, a famous watch collector John Goldberger is donating all the proceeds to the children's charity Children Action
