Notes

The18kt Ref.6239 has been made in approximately 300 pieces, that makes it one of the rarest yellow gold Daytona chronograph. We estimate that only 10 percent of these were equipped with the exotic “so called” Paul Newman dial. It”s a hard challenge to find a well preserved, full set with all the service history.
