Up for grabs is a Rolex Cosmograph Daytona in steel
reference 6262 with cal. 727 movement.
This reference was only made for approximately 2 years
2.3 mil serial number circa 1969
Excellent vintage condition case with thick and sharp lugs. The serial and reference numbers are very clearly intact. No corrosion or pitting.
Dial is in nearly flawless condition. No marks, no scratches, no drag marks. All tritium plots are perfect with nice yellow patina. Hands are perfect with matching patina. No relume, no refinish. There is a slight mark on very edge of dial between 3 and 4. Unnoticeable with naked eye. Subdials are damage and mark free.
Bezel is original, in excellent sharp condition. No damage, no signs of overpolish or refinish. No dents.
Crystal might be original to the watch, domed.
Caseback is original, in excellent and sharp condition. Correctly stamped 6239 inside with casemaker’s and Rolex hallmarks.
The original cal. 727 movement is in excellent physical condition. I am not certain that it has ever been service, there are no service marks inside of caseback. The gasket is quiet flat and took good amount of pressure to open the caseback, so this watch has not been opened in a very long time.
The watch winds smoothly, runs, and chronograph runs, stops, and resets for the most part. The hour totalizer gets stuck at about 1 hour mark when being reset, but after a few more clicks with lower pusher, it reset back to zero.
This watch was found on strap and I have replaced the strap with a newer Rolex 78350 bracelet in tight condition with 571 end-links.
No box or papers.
