The fist "Oyster Cosmograph" left the house of Rolex in 1963, however only after the appointment of Rolex as the official timekeeper in Daytona, the dials get printed with the legendary "DAYTONA"
writing; the myth was born. As usual the technique and the optical appearance during the next 25 years of production continuously changed - therefore this model has numerous variations till the
production of the manual winding Daytonas ceased. During 1988's Basel Fair the successor with automatic movement was presented to the world. Certainly the legend lives on, but collectors and
enthusiasts agree: The models from 1963 to 1988 are in their appearance and exclusivity unrivalled and a piece of history.
Our Daytona is one of the later examples of the reference 6265 from the year 1986. 1970 was the first year of production of this series with screwed pushbuttons. The last models left the Rolex
factory in Geneva in 1988. The watch is in perfect original condition and comes from a private collection. It still retains the original papers and box with outer packaging. The watch is serviced
by Rolex Geneva and for collectors a rare opportunity with all these documents.
