By Paul Altieri,
Any vintage Rolex Daytona watch is a highly sought after watch by most collectors. They are available in a wide range of conditions ranging heavily damaged or heavily modified all the way to pristine but you need to mortgage a mansion to be able to afford it. Here at Bob’s Watches we strive very hard to provide only the best possible vintage watches, as original as possible. Occasionally, we are able offer a piece that is the best of both worlds, a great watch at a great price!
This 6239, Stainless steel, Daytona was manufactured in 1966 and is in fantastic condition for a watch that is 5 decades old. The steel case shows signs of light polishing but displays its nice, thick, lugs well. The original, 200uph bezel is in equally good condition with all numbers easy-to-read and all paint still intact. The dial paint is stunning and gorgeous to look at. The luminous markers do show signs of age. There are 2 missing and a few are partially flaked off. The appearance of the dial is not marred in any way by this, but we point it out because we want our customers to be completely informed about our watches no matter how small the flaw. This Daytona is completed with a gorgeous 6635 expandable rivet bracelet that is in excellent condition for its age. This is a beautiful vintage Daytona at a great price!
