$56,000.00

Scarce and popular iconic vintage Rolex Daytona ref 6239, serial # 1.1 million circa 1965. Extremely nice condition early “plunger” pusher model with heavy beefy lugs, steel 200 mph calibrations bezel and with a beautiful condition Rolex service replacement dial signed “Oyster” and with red printed “Daytona. With clean, shiny, and unscratched hands. Powered by caliber 72B manual wind movement. Fitted with heavy Oyster Rolex bracelet ref 78350 with 357 end pieces. Guaranteed genuine, just fully serviced in excellent operating condition.

The Daytona has continued its meteoric rise over the past few years. The 6239 is the first and classic Daytona reference # and the model most often seen fitted with the Paul Newman dial. The Daytona model featured an outer tachometer bezel, stainless steel as in this example, and with a black lacquer bezel as in the 6241 model. Actor Paul Newman’s own exotic dial “Paul Newman Daytona which recently sold at auction for nearly $18 million U.S., was a 6239.

This vintage classic has recently been fully serviced and is offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate timekeeping and operation.

Note: the dial on this example is a service replacement dial replaced by Rolex during a service in the watch’s history. The original dial would have looked similar to this example, but without the term “Oyster” on the dial, and with the word “Daytona” in red. The service dial is in pristine condition free of any scratches or defects and with fully intact tritium luminous dots.

Vintage Rolex & Pre-Owned Rolex Watches

There is no watch brand more associated with quality, prestige, luxury, success, and social status than Rolex. Founded in the UK in 1908 and soon relocated to Switzerland, Rolex is credited with countless technical advances in time keeping accuracy, the introduction in 1928 of the water and dust resistant “Oyster” case, and in 1933, the perfection of the self winding “Perpetual” movement. With sponsorship of sporting events as wide reaching as the America’s cup, to the Daytona 500, golf and tennis tournaments, and expeditions to the far reaches of the world, Rolex has always promoted it’s brand as an icon of success, achievement, and conquest. With popular “tool” watches such as the diver’s Submariner or Seadweller, the Aviator’s dual time zone GMT, the spelunker’s 24 hour Explorer, or the auto racer’s Daytona, Rolex has created loyal followings for the sports minded man. And the dressy Datejust and Presidential models, once the CEO’s trademark timepiece, are now much sought after by both men and woman as a luxury fashion statement. Whether vintage Rolex or more contemporary, your choice of a Rolex will always be a good choice.

All of our pre-owned Vintage Rolex watches are fully restored and guaranteed genuine to give you excellent service and piece of mind.
