The "Oyster Cosmograph Daytona" reference 6263 is a must for most collectors of Rolex timepieces – not only because the watch is a true cult icon but also because of its beautiful and appealing overall design. The combination of the silvered dial with the red Daytona logo, the black subsidiary dials and the attractive black acrylic bezel presents a thrilling contrast to the sportive yet elegant steel case.
This reference 6263 dates from 1985 and has hardly been worn. The edges are sharp and the deep black bezel has no chips at all. The dial is particularly attractive and in absolutely perfect condition - the warm, silvery hue contrasts beautifully with the ebony-coloured chronograph registers, the cherry-red Daytona logo and the custard-coloured luminous dots.
References 6263 (with acrylic bezel) and 6265 (with engraved steel bezel) are available in two versions: with white dial with black subsidiary dials and with black dial with white subsidiary dials. References 6263 and 6265 were introduced in 1970 to replace references 6262 and 6264 (without screw-down pushers) and featured the larger "Daytona" lettering in red from about 1974, hence the name "Big Red".
