VINTAGE ROLEX Daytona 6265

By Paul Altieri

Rolex came out with the Daytona in 1963 and today modern and vintage examples alike are some of the most sought after watches in the world. Rolex came out with the reference 6265 around 1971 and this would be the last generation of the manually wound Daytona. The defining characteristics of the reference 6265 are the screw down style pushers and metal bezel. Rolex offered this model in a few variations in stainless steel. Rolex offered them with a black dial with white sub registers, like the example we have here today or with a silver dial and black registers. Rolex also offered these with exotic dials known as Paul Newman dials and they offered the model in gold as well. The 6265 tends to be a little more understated because of the metal bezel. 

The example we are offering here has a silver "Sigma" dial with black sub-registers. Collectors refer to these as "Sigma Dial" Daytona's because of the two little Sigma symbols that flank "T SWISS T" at the bottom of the dial. The Sigma symbols mean that the hands and hour markers are made of white gold and you can find the Sigma symbols on some other watches of the era too. You can read more about the breakdown of Sigma dials here.

This watch is a real stunner in the metal and has aged beautifully. From the gorgeous buttery lume to the well preserved bezel, this watch just pops in the sunlight. This examples comes on its period correct "made in USA" Jubilee bracelet and comes with an additional later Oyster bracelet. Each bracelet gives the watch a different identity and changing the bracelet can make you feel like you have on a different watch. It's amazing how a bracelet can change the look so much. If you have been looking for a 6265 with silver Sigma dial this one checks all the boxes!
