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 - it is 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 produced them with a black dial with white sub registers, or like the example we have here today with a silver dial and black registers. Rolex also offered these Daytonas with exotic dials known as Paul Newman dials and in gold as well.
The example for sale here is referred to by collectors as a "Sigma Dial" and furthermore its a "tight sigma dial." Sigma refers to the little Sigma symbols on either side of the "T Swiss T" at the bottom of the dial under six. Tight sigma refers to the Sigma symbols being closer to the "T Swiss T" where as on the other Sigma versions the symbols are spaced out a bit more. To learn more about Sigma dials, go here.
This watch is in overall great, honest condition and is fresh to market.
