Notes

The Rolex Daytona reference 6241 was manufactured from 1965 to approximately 1969. The reference is fitted with a calibrated black acrylic bezel and still retains the pump pushers and a small winding crown ( 6mm) , which are the typical features of the non Oyster Daytona (6239/6241). This example has wonderful deep brown tropical sub-dials that helps to further enhance the attractiveness of the dial design.
