The present example features a 'floating' Daytona dial, more often seen on reference 6239 (see Lot 185 for reference 6239 with the 'floating Daytona' dial configuration). The 1.4 million serial number dates back to 1965 - during the first half of production of reference 6240. One can speculate that the 'floating' Daytona dials were used to test out the newly added screw-down pushers.
The rarity of reference 6240 coupled with the early 'Floating Daytona' dial further enhances the collectability of this piece.
