Catalogue Note

The Rolex Daytona is synonymous with sports, from the name on the dial to the chronograph complication. This spectacular yellow gold lot is particularly rare as most Daytona models were produced in stainless steel.

The present ref. 6241 bears the extremely rare combination of a gold dial with white text to the subsidiary dials. The serial number additionally lies in the 1.5 million range, confirming the short date that the watch was produced with this dial combination. It is equally presented in all original condition with an excellently preserved dial.
