The 6265, the 'grail watch' for many aficionados worldwide.

The model we offer you today dates back to 1987. So, it’s a late example. Characteristically, for the late 6265’s are the ‘Big Red Dials’, which means the word Daytona is printed in a large, red font.

Its 37mm case houses the famous Valjoux 727 and this watch, which has been kept in great condition, comes as a full set.

In 1958, NASCAR created the Daytona International Speedway in the city of Daytona, Florida. One year later, Rolex introduced the Oyster Chronograph; a manual-wind chronograph with an Oyster case. Rolex produced this watch to 1961 and then, the reference 6238 made its way to the market.

This watch is better known as the Pre-Daytona; the forefather of the Daytona. One year later, Rolex served as the official timekeeper of the Daytona Speedway. In 1963, the reference 6239, sometimes nicknamed by Rolex as ‘Le Mans’, was launched and this watch had the design of the Daytona as we know it today. It had the tachymetric scale engraved on the bezel and faceted hour markers and baton hands. In 1965, the name Daytona appeared on the dial.

In 1971, Rolex brought out ref: 6265, which we have on offer today. This Daytona had a steel bezel as opposed to some other references that had a black acrylic bezel. Moreover, this watch featured screw-down pushers and therefore, was made to be waterproof.
