Watch details

For sale is this Tropical Rolex Daytona Cosmograph Ref 6262. This is an exceptional example of a Rolex Cosmograph Daytona reference 6262 in stainless steel. This is a transitional model made in the late 1960's and was the last of the push button Rolex Daytona’s ever produced. This was a very small production period.

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.
