Notes

The reference 6239 was the first reference to feature the so-called Paul Newman dial. The bridge stamped with 5 lines appeared in the caliber 722 and would become the standard until the end of the manual Daytona production. The stainless steel bezel used on references 6239, 6262 and 6265 were engraved and filled with black paint. The current example is fitted with an attractive black dial (silver was also available) and is considered by many the purest version of the chronographs. La référence 6239 fut la première référence à être présentée avec un cadran Paul Newman. Le pont également gravé sur 5 lignes est apparu sur le calibre 722 et deviendra la norme jusqu' à la fin de la production des Daytonasmanuels. La lunette acier a été produite pour les références 6239, 6262 et 6265 et celle-ci est gravée puis remplie de peinture. Cet exemple est équipé d'un cadran noir (la version en cadran argent existe aussi) et est considéré par les collectionneurs comme la version la plus pure des chronographes.
