Introduced during the early 1970s, reference 6262 succeeded the reference 6239. Built with a metallic bezel calibrated for 200 units and round chronograph pushers, the timepiece was assembled with the updated mechanical Valjoux caliber 727, used for manually wound Daytona wristwatches until 1987. Usually built with a silvered or black dial, the early examples of the reference, such as the present wristwatch, featured a Daytona signature bellow Cosmograph, slightly wider than the latter.
Captivating specimen of the reference, the present chronograph is very well preserved and features subsidiary dials that have aged to a brown colour shade. Originally in black, this discrepancy is known as “tropicalization” and causes the dial to change in time to a different colour, which can be any shade from dark to a light brown.
