Rolex “The Floating Daytona ref. 6240”. Status: available

Extremely rare and early example of steel Rolex Daytona ref. 6240, manufactured in 1966. The present specimen stands out for the amazing silver dial featuring the rare and charming small “Floating Daytona” writing. All the luminous plots are perfectly intact. The charm of this early example is enhanced by the wonderful tone of oxidized “Millerighe” screw-down chronograph buttons.

Introduced in 1965 reference 6240 was in production until 1969: for the first time, Rolex introduced an acrylic bezel for the tachometer scale and the new screw-down chronograph buttons to improve water resistance. It is believed there are only 1.700 examples ever made.
