Reference 6263 and 6265 entered into production in 1969, replacing the first oyster chronograph, reference 6240.  The present 6263 from 1974 is highly desirable amongst collectors, featuring its original black acrylic tachometer bezel and the extremely sought after 'sigma' dial.  

The 'sigma' designation can be found at the 6 o'clock position alongside the T-SWISS-T signature, and indicates that the hour markers are white gold rather than stainless steel.  The silvered dial gives this watch a sporty, yet elegant aesthetic.  The contrasting black subsidiary dials and black acrylic tachometer bezel makes for a more modern look - which is particularly appealing to collectors today. 

The present example is offered completely fresh to the auction market, and was worn lovingly by the original owner for the past several decades since it was originally purchased on December 16, 1976.
