Vintage Rolex Daytona ref 6263 serial # 5.5 million circa 1978. Very desirable so called “Big Red” model with original black dial with red Daytona printing in large font. This reference 6263 model is distinguished by screw down chronograph pushers, black lacquer tachometer bezel, original matte black dial with contrasting white registers and big Red Daytona printing. Extremely nice condition example, with beefy lugs, excellent condition bakelite tachometer bezel, and very pleasing original dial. Powered by calibre 727 manual wind movement, with Rolex heavy Oyster 93150 bracelet with Daytona correct 571 end pieces.

This is the iconic model for any Rolex collector or watch enthusiast. In excellent running and operating condition. No box or papers included. Of course guaranteed genuine. Consigned by our client, but not serviced by us. See many attached photos. Please enlarge with top left arrows. (Note some corrosion on chrono runner hand)
