Staying true to earlier references, the 6265 was introduced during the 1970s and produced until 1987. Launched with the reference 6263, the main difference between both chronographs resides in the bezel.
Assembled with a stainless steel, 14 or 18 karat gold case, the present chronograph was crafted with a metallic bezel graduated to 200 units per hour, as well as the mechanical Valjoux caliber 727 succeeding caliber 722-1. Using screw-down chronograph pushers, a screw-down case back and a wider winding crown, the wristwatch bears the Oyster designation on its dial, as it benefits from enhanced waterproofness compared to previous references.
Part of the last manually wound Daytona chronographs produced and representing the peak of Rolex technical efforts for the reference, the present timepiece can be considered as a cornerstone of any Rolex collection.
