Description

Rolex Daytona ref 6239 with ‘Chocolate brown’ subdials

the Rolex 6239 

Rolex 6239 Cosmograph Daytona from 1969. The Rolex 6239 may be one of the most sought after chronograph watches today. The watch we offer for sale is one of the best examples on the market with a silver dial and dark brown subdials. The Rolex 6239 Daytona has not always been a popular Rolex mode, it was hard to sell a Rolex Daytona. Today it sounds unrealistic that a Rolex 6239 with the exotic ‘Paul Newman’ dial costed around 300 dollar back then. For example, a rolex day-date in yellow gold was 10 times more expensive then any steel Daytona watch

Recently the personal watch of Paul Newman sold for a record amount at Phillips watches. The ref 6239 is also known as the Paul Newman reference.
