Notes

Dial, case and movement signed. DIAM. 36 mm. THICKNESS 13 mm. Approx. overall length 180 mm. Introduced in 1970 the ROLEX DAYTONA REF. 6262 was the updated version of the REF. 6239 featuring an improved and more accurate Cal. 727 movement. Considered one of the rarest Daytona references produced, the 6262 model was replaced by the Ref. 6265 with screw-down pushers circa 1971. Examples of Ref. 6262 with a black PAUL NEWMAN dial are particularly rare.
