Lot Essay

The present timepiece is distinguished by its excellent overall condition and the presence of the original Bulletin de Marche, a rarity by itself. Carefully cherished throughout the years, it was serviced by Rolex in 2012 and features a captivating dial, with the rare and coveted Sigma symbols on either side of the “T Swiss T” designation. The Sigma symbols indicate that the baton numerals and hands on a dial were made of gold, in this case, white. Offered with service protective stickers to its band and case back, the stainless steel case still displays strong proportions and the correct chronograph pushers.

Staying true to earlier Cosmographs, the reference 6265 was introduced during the 1970s and produced until 1987. Launched alongside 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 benefited from enhanced waterproofness compared to previous references.
