Offered here is a beautiful example of Rolex Daytona, Ref. 6265 (circa 1974; 3.9m serial), with an “ROC” dial. This example is outfitted with a panda-silver dial, and features screwdown pushers. These screwdown pusher-Daytonas have soared in popularity over the last couple decades, and are coveted by collectors, new and old. However, what makes this example standout is the fact that the dial has turned “tropical”, meaning the black registers have naturally aged to a brown color.
The condition of this Daytona is excellent. The case has been previously polished, but lightly, with thick and even lugs. The dial is in beautiful condition, with no flaws, and as previously mentioned, the registers have aged to a caramel brown color. The original tritium lume is still present on both dial and hands, with extremely beautiful and puffy yellow plots, and only minor loss in the volume of some of the plots on the dial.
The watch also comes with a 7835 oyster folded link bracelet, with 271 endlinks, dated to the 2nd quarter of 1969. The bracelet has light stretch, and has 13 links in total. Further, the watch comes complete with its original box and “punched” Guarantee certificate.
