Breathtaking Rolex Daytona ref. 6265, manufactured in 1980. The present example stands out for its mint condition, making it an extraordinary and rare oppurtunity for discerning collectors. The dial is just flawless and the case is absolutely untouched. Hardly worn, it is still preserving its Rolex sticker on the case back. The combination of the silvered dial with black subsidiary registers and the red Daytona writing, creates an eye-catching contrast with the steel case of this outstanding specimen. Reference 6265 was introduced to the market in 1969 and ceased production in 1987. This new water resistant model featured screw down pushers and the ‘Oyster’ designation on the dial. Case n.: 6392xxx Calibre: Manual, 727 Diameter: 37mm Box & Papers: None Manufactured in: 1980

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.
