By Eric Wind,
The Rolex Daytona reference 6265 is an extremely desirable model and one of the most desirable vintage Rolex chronographs. The reference 6265 and 6263 Daytona watches feature the word "Oyster" on the dial indicating their enhanced water resistance resulting from the screw-down chronograph pushers. The reference 6265 features a steel bezel with a tachymeter track for measuring speeds, whereas the reference 6263 features a black acrylic bezel. The present watch is known as a "Mark 1" Daytona 6265 and is among the earliest examples of the reference made. It does not feature the word "Daytona" on the dial, which was added later, and likewise does not have the Greek letter sigma on the dial on either side of the "T SWISS T" by 6 o'clock, which indicates that the hour markers are made of white gold. This watch features a manual-winding Valjoux chronograph movement that was regulated by Rolex and features a beautiful "soleil" or "sunburst" silver dial with black registers.
