Signed Dial, case and movement This is a very fine and very rare, water-resistant, stainless steel wristwatch with anti-reflective black tachometer bezel, round button chronograph and registers. The reference 6241 was the third Cosmograph Daytona to be released and was made from from 1961 until 1970. It was available in stainless steel and either 14K or 18K gold with a black plastic insert bezel. As an option, the "exotic dial" or so-called "Paul Newman" dial was available and is today very rare and collectible. The ref. 6241 was replaced by Ref. 6265. The "Paul Newman" models are much rarer than the standard "Cosmograph" dials and consequently are much sought after by collector.
