This product is unavailable
Over the past 50 years the Rolex Daytona has solidified it’s place in history as one of the most sought after and popular chronographs in existence. The iconic style of the Daytona has been imitated by various brands for decades, but none compare to the original.
Rolex released the Daytona in 1963, inspired by auto racing and named for the world famous speedway in Daytona, Florida, home to the Daytona 500. The recognizable design of this chronograph features three sub-dials, a screw-down crown at 3 o’clock and two push pins above and below the crown at 2 and 4 o’clock.
The Daytona gained notoriety after actor Paul Newman began wearing a 1972 Daytona his wife gave him after he took up auto racing. Collectors and enthusiasts began referring to Daytona’s with a particular style dial Paul Newman Daytona’s.
This particular Rolex Daytona, a reference 6265, is not only a "Big Red" but also has a rare "Sigma dial." A Sigma dial is a dial marked at the bottom near 6 o'clock with the letters "O T SWISS T O." This marks the dial a Sigma dial and means that the watches markers are made of gold, in this case white gold.
