With Rolex Service Guarantee dated 7 September 2001 issued by Rolex Service Division, London and Bexley, blank guarantee and period presentation box.
Ref. 6262 and its sister reference 6264 were introduced in 1970, fitted with the latest generation caliber 727 movement. The standard dial features the Daytona designation curling above the top edge of the central register. The Paul Newman dial, available in black and white, differs slightly from previous versions.
Amongst the dials regularly produced, the 'Paul Newman' is considered the rarest and most prestigious ever fitted on the Cosmograph Daytona. It has been developed in many different versions, some of which are undeniably exceptional. The reference 6262 offered here for sale shows incontestable proof of its rarity, displaying numerous points of great interest. Firstly the 'vessel shaped' form of its counters, the concentric circular threads covering two thirds of the circle's surface, which extends itself towards the raised border by means of a blank slanting track. This slope offers the traditional tri-dimensional effect, but at the same time distinguishes the dial from the rest of the well-known versions. Furthermore, the 'T Swiss T' is clearly more linear and modern than the 'sing-a-song' graphic of the previous versions. Added to which, it is proportionally slightly different to all the future productions of the 'Paul Newman' dials.
Consigned by its first owner the present watch furthermore impresses with its well preserved, original overall condition, making it a coveted trophy for the aficionado of the ultra-rare "Paul Newman" models.
