Reference 6263 and 6265 have become the ultimate expression of the vintage Rolex Daytona. With production starting in 1969, 6265 was the last Rolex chronograph reference to house the iconic hand wound Valjoux 727 movement and was blessed with timeless proportions, sporty style and combined the Oyster case with screw down pushers, ensuring it was completely waterproof.
This example is elevated by its beautifully aged 18k yellow gold case and bracelet, making it the ultimate expression of sportiness and luxury.
