Watch details

The Rolex Daytona 6263 has long been an icon in the vintage watch world. This watch comes in a number of variations, but recently we have found ourselves enjoying the simplicity and cleanliness of this non-Big Red variation. This watch is in excellent condition with a beautiful clean dial, a slightly aged bezel and excellent case. The 24-P302 pushers could either be from Rolex service or original, as these pushers were introduced in the mid 1970s. If you have any further questions about this watch, please feel free to get in touch.

Birth of a Horological Icon Timepiece  The myth around the iconic Rolex Daytona has spread around the world recent years. Always has the Daytona model been attached to motor racing, at first Rolex called their new Cosmograph the “Le Mans” and little later to “Daytona” when Rolex started to sponsor the well known U.S. speedway.
Cosmograph: a name that was to be the forerunner of great fortune. Actually, the choice of the name proved to be neither easy nor expected. Whilst Rolex on the one hand flirted with the car-racing world, on the other hand it could not remain unaware of the vast media attention, which at that time was surrounding the conquest of outer space.
