By Paul Altieri,
The Rolex "Paul Newman" Daytona reference 6241 is one of the most desirable vintage Rolex chronographs. It features a bold "exotic" dial with unique box markers in the chronograph registers. These Daytonas gained their nickname as Paul Newman wore a Daytona reference 6239 with this exact exotic dial, featuring a red outer seconds track, white dial, and black registers with white printing. The reference 6241 featured pump pushers to start, stop, and reset the chronograph (later models featured screw-down pushers to increase water resistance). Furthermore, the reference 6241 features a black acrylic bezel with a tachymeter track for measuring speeds, compared with the steel bezel found on the reference 6239. This watch features a manual-winding Valjoux chronograph movement that was regulated by Rolex.
