The Daytona name came in 1964/1965, when Rolex decided to brand the 6263 Cosmograph reference in order to appeal to the auto racing culture of the USA and was also an official sponsor of the Daytona 500 auto race held in Daytona Beach, FL. The Daytona quickly became a chronograph favorite among enthusiast and has grown into a statement of prestige in the horological world.
This specific 1973 example of the Daytona Ref. 6265 is sometimes referred to as a "ROC" dial as this early dial variant only bears the words Rolex Oyster Cosmograph and lacks the Daytona text above the 6:00 subdial. The silver dial with the offset crisp black matte subdials sets the tone for the watch’s appearance. The watch really pops due to the three black sub-dials on the silver dial and The stainless steel bezel is in wonderful and almost perfect condition and frames the dial perfectly
We love the vintage Cosmograph range of due to the fact that they have a high level of contrast which is something the modern Rolex Daytona range of timepieces has lost due to the completely monochromatic look of the dials found on today modern reference range.
