Description

Vintage Rolex Daytona Cosmograph in perfect condition. This reference 6239 has a bakelite mk1 bezel, the original steel bezel comes with the watch as well. This Rolex Daytona dates back to 1969. The condition of the watch is very good. First of all the dial condition is mint with all tritium dots intact, the movement remains in well maintained and full original condition too. It has been previously serviced and not been worn much after. The Rolex Daytona Cosmograph is one of the most interesting watches for Rolex collectors and its very hard to find the perfect example. We are happy to offer this beautiful preserved sports Rolex which has not always been the most iconic Rolex watch. Back in the days the Daytona was a model which was difficult to sell for the Rolex dealers.


This vintage example dates from 1969, the same year of the recently sold ‘Paul Newman’s ‘ ref 6239.  This Daytona Cosmograph has been added with the very rare bakelite bezel. This resulted the watch to be in the same configuration as the (much rarer) reference 6241 Daytona.  Back in the days it was possible to change the bezel on request at local Rolex dealers. These days this would certainly be impossible, the bakelite mk1 bezels are extremely scarce and sought after by collectors. On request we are able to deliver the watch with the steel bezel mounted but we prefer the looks and condition of the watch as it is right now.
