Offered here is a beautiful example of Rolex Daytona, Ref. 6263 (circa 1974; 3.9m serial), nicknamed the “Sigma” Daytona, due to the printing of two small sigmas at the bottom of the dial next to “T SWISS T”. 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.
The condition of this Daytona is great. The case does not show any signs of polishing, with thick and even lugs, and normal wear from use. The dial is in beautiful condition, with no major flaws, and only one very minor tool mark above the “R” in Rolex. The original tritium lume is still present on both dial and hands, with extremely beautiful vibrant yellow and puffy plots, and only minor loss to some of the plots on the right side of the dial, which is very common for these early Daytonas. The original Bakelite black bezel is likewise in good condition, with no cracks.
The watch also comes with a 7835/19 Rolex folded-link bracelet, with 357 endlinks, dated to 1972. The bracelet has light stretch, and has 12 full links.
