Rolex “Big Red” Daytona


SKU: 45f3d3d32s2s Categories: , ,


Offered here is an incredible example of Rolex Daytona, Ref. 6265 (circa 1979; 6.2m serial), nicknamed the “Big Red” Daytona, due to the printing of “Daytona” in bright red letters in the center of the 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.

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.  The original tritium lume is still present on both dial and hands, with extremely beautiful and puffy plots, and only the most minor of loss to the 9 o’clock plot.

The watch also comes with a 78350 oyster bracelet, with 571 endlinks. The bracelet has almost no stretch, and has 12 links in total.

This example is one of the finest on the market, and will be difficult to replace in terms of collectability and condition!
