Extraordinary rare and early example of Rolex steel Daytona ref. 6239.
1963 was the historical year when Rolex introduced reference 6239, the very first model of the iconic Cosmograph. For the first time, the tachymeter scale was moved from the dial to the bezel and was calibrated to 300 units per hour.
The present 1st Series example is not only in exceptional condition but it is fitted with the highly coveted “ Double Swiss” dial. This superb grené dial is also enhanced by the chocolate brown registers that create a wonderful contrast. The case back is engraved “6238″.
Definitely an amazing watch with a powerful charisma and one of the rarest and most sought after Daytona known in the collectors’ community.
