One of the rarest Cosmograph models, reference 6264 was produced for a few years only in the early 1970s. Together with reference 6262, it was the last Rolex chronograph watch to be fitted with pump pushers. It is understood that only some 1,700 examples in stainless steel were ever made of reference 6264. Along with the rarity of the model, the present watch is also eye catching due to the "Paul Newman PANDA" dial. The lightly brown on the white grainé with the red "Daytona" signature makes the watch very attractive. Preserved in very nice condition this rare reference with delightful "Paul Newman Panda / chocolate" dial is sure to please the most discerning of collectors.
