This particular 116520 is known as a Panna dial Daytona as Ref. No. 116520 that were produced between the years 2000 and 2002 were subjected to a rare production defect: Over time, the dial of the watch would turn from white to an off-white, cream color.
Cream Panna Dial
The reason as to why this dial is cream can be attributed to a reaction that takes place, which turns the dial from white to cream. This happens when a thin layer of condensation forms on the surface of the dial because of sudden temperature changes etc. When this thin layer of condensation is exposed to UV rays (sunlight etc), for long periods of time it oxidises the dial and causes the color change. This is an exceptionally rare event and has only been seen on very few 116520 models.
