Rolex released the first Daytona in 1963, named in occasion of the world-famous Daytona speedway in Florida. The first reference to be realized was the 6239 equipped with a caliber 72B and then the 722. Only 2 years after the launch of the 6239, in 1965 was also presented the 6241, with the same composition of her older sister but with presence of a bezel made in black acrylic insert, the tachometer scale printed in white, available in stainless steel, 14k and 18k gold, it remained in production until 1969 and was fitted with the non-Oyster or non-screw down chronograph buttons and with optional silver, black or at an additional charge exotic format dial. The three-body water resistant case in 14k yellow gold of the watch offered here is very well preserved, the acrylic bezel strikes for the untouched conservation matching perfectly the black color of the dial compleated by its applied baton numerals, ocher luminous dots and very rare Everose subsidiary counters.
