Catalogue Note

The Rolex Daytona, reference 6241 was introduced in 1966 and was in production until 1969. There were roughly 3000 pieces made and a very limited number fitted with a 'Paul Newman' dial.

The present watch is a wonderful example of a reference 6241 'Paul Newman'. The dial is further distinguished with dark brown tropical registers. The white graphics of the registers are still bright white and the luminous dots are nice and intact and react very well under UV. The case still retains very nice proportions and overall this example has been kept in very attractive condition.
