Lot Essay

The panorama of manually-wound Rolex Daytona Chronographs encompasses 7 different models, plus two bejeweled models produced in extremely small numbers. Among the non-bejeweled timepieces, only three models truly qualify as Oyster case (indeed, while these three models bear the Oyster designation on the dial, the others do not). A true Oyster case is defined by the screw back, screw down crown and screw down chronograph pushers that ensure increased water resistance. Reference 6265 is one of these highly sought-after models. Together with its sister reference 6263 (the difference being the black-insert bezel rather than the metal one), reference 6265 is the final evolution of the manually wound Daytona. It is distinguished, beyond its metal insert and screw down pushers, by the caliber 727 (evolved from caliber 722-1).

The present watch impresses due to its pristine condition. The dial is wonderfully preserved with black registers that are beginning to turn a dark shade of brown, a feature for vintage Daytonas that is highly sought after. In addition, the luminous dots which accent the baton numerals have aged well and evenly throughout. Furthermore, the dial prominently features the renowned retailers signature, Tiffany & Co. The case is full and well proportioned, offered with its original bracelet this watch ticks all the boxes for collectors of vintage Rolex.
