Notes

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 dial has aged uniformly to a very attractive brown color on the sub-dials and the outer track that is sure to please the collectors of "tropical" dials.
