In 1969 references 6263 and 6265 were simultaneously launched, both with the wording “Oyster” on the dial. Based on the experience made a few years earlier with the ref. 6240, to tell the truth not particularly positive on the commercial level, these two new Rolex chronographs were also equipped with screw-down chronograph pushers. Based on the experience made a few years earlier with the ref. 6240, to tell the truth not particularly positive on the commercial level, these two new Rolex chronographs were equipped with screw-down chronograph pushers. Reference 6263 such as the present lot is the last version of the Rolex Daytona made with a manual-winding Valjoux movement. The aggressive look of this very nicely preserved tonneau case in stainless steel is due to the screw-down pushers to increase water resistance and the black acrylic bezel featuring a tachymeter track. The dial is silvered with applied baton indexes, luminous dots and the black subsidiary dials have aged till gaining a really fascinating brown tropical color. Moreover this watch comes with its original Box, Warranty and Email Confirmation of the previous Sale.
