Description

Launched in 1963, the iconic Daytona reference 6239 is one of the most desirable watches ever produced. With a Paul Newman dial, the watch is launched into another realm of desirability. This example has a 1.7M serial number dating it to 1968 and a near flawless dial.

Like New

The watch is in overall very good condition. The case is extremely strong with sharp and thick lugs. There are light signs of wear throughout to the watch, commensurate with age. The inside case back is stamped 6239 and has watchmaker's marks. The dial is in near flawless condition. There are two very small spots only visible through a loupe near 8 and 10 o'clock. The lume has darkened with age, but all plots are present. There is slight deterioration at the 8 and 9 o'clock plots. The end links are 271 and the bracelet is marked "4, 71" indicating it's likely later. The bracelet shows a bit of stretch and is in equivalent condition to the case. The movement is working intermittently at the time of cataloging. The chronograph is not working properly. A service is required.
