Lot Essay

With Rolex punched Garantie et Attestation de Chronometre Officiel dated 12 October 1984, product literature and Rolex fitted green presentation box with outer packaging.

In the early 1980s, following the current trends, the Daytona case becomes larger with a restyling that updates its look. The "registered design" inscription between the lugs also changes and is substituted with "Orig Rolex Design" due to the expiration of the patent.

A new crown is adopted, the 703 Triplock, as well as new screw-down buttons coded 24-P302. These are characterised by the circular groove on the central component and thus, improves the waterproof feature of the chronograph.

The red "Daytona" designation is always present on steel models. The gold models dial remains relatively unchanged. The "Chronometer" designation is at 12 o'clock and the "Cosmograph" designation, rather than the classic "Daytona", is above the central register. The only combinations that are permitted are the champagne background with black registers, or black background with champagne registers. The graphics of the sub registers are black or golden.

This particular 18k gold 6265 was manufactured in 1982 and impresses the enthusiast with an amazing case with its sharp angles, is a testament to how lovingly it has been preserved. The hallmarks on the underside of the lugs are as crisp as ever and the same is true of the satin finish of both lugs and the case back. It comes with its original box and papers, making it an incredibly desirable 1980s production Daytona.
