ROLEX DAYTONA Ref. 6265
Fine and rare 18k yellow solid gold manual winding chronograph wristwatch with black dial and 3 registers.
In 1905, Hans Wildorf creates Rolex, since then the firm stands out from the market in all areas of amateur and professional activities, without forgetting motor racing.
Daytona takes its name from the famous race track located on the east coast of Florida.
Thanks to its tachymetric scale on the bezel and chronograph, drivers can use it to calculate their average speed times during races.
The Daytona became mythical and was made sacred by Paul Newman who wore it in the 1960s.
The Rolex Cosmograph is glorified with the highest bid ever made with the actor’s model at an auction sales.
The model presented here is from 1981. A round case in solid yellow gold of 37 mm diameter, a solid yellow gold bezel with tachymetric scale, with screwed crown, pushers and case back. A black dial with three registers, minutes totalizer at 3, hours totalizer at 6 and permanent second hand at 9. The superb solid yellow gold bracelet is riveted.
A rare Daytona model in chic and elegant yellow gold.
Perfect proportions, this chronograph made by Rolex is a symbol of prosperity and success.
