vintage ROLEX Daytona 6262

By Paul Altieri

Rolex came out with the Daytona in 1963 and it is still in production today. Rolex debuted the reference 6262 in 1970 and it would be the second generation of the legendary model. Rolex upgraded the movement caliber for this reference to the caliber 727 which would be the movement of choice for all the manual winding Daytona's going forward. The overall aesthetic was pretty similar to the previous generation with the defining characteristics being the steel bezel and pump style pushers. Rolex offered the 6262 with a silver or black dial and they also offered it with exotic "Paul Newman" variations too. Rolex offered the 6262 for a very short period for approximately one year from 1970 to 1971 and it's one of the rarest Daytona references in general. 

The example we have here is the black dial variant with white sub-registers and "Daytona" above the six o'clock hours register. Collectors refer to this variant as the "Blue Daytona" because of the blue Daytona text color. When looking closely at the word you can see it has a blueish grey hue which is only found on this model and some late reference 6239's with black dials. 

This watch is in great, honest condition and perfect for someone who wants a classic steel bezel, pump pusher Daytona with a twist. These "blue" 6262s tend to fly under the radar and belong in the "if you know, you know" club which is something we are seeing more collectors gravitating towards.
