Rolex Daytona Big Red. Pure Beauty.

Watches Monte Carlo 8 dicembre 2020

The Rolex Daytona, a milestone in watchmaking, is a watch loved by the enthusiasts of the crowned brand. It has bewitched entire generations, because it is timeless and has always been considered the status symbol par excellence, for every age and sex group. The 6265 “Big Red” is a highly sought-after model. The piece that will be presented features a stainless-steel case and bracelet, screw-down push-buttons, a large screw-down water-resistant crown to guarantee a tight fit, and a black dial with silver counters, where the Daytona inscription in red stands out, placed at the top of the counter at six o’clock and following its upper curve. This inscription is introduced exclusively on the steel models and makes it a very attractive item for the collectors’ market. The bezel of the Rolex 6265 is in steel with a base 200 tachymeter scale, engraved with black numerals, a novelty compared to the previous reference model. The Rolex Daytona 6263, in fact, had a black bezel with a plastic interior and white numerals. The beating heart of this watch is a hand-wound chronograph, calibre 727, “white” 13-line movement, 21,600 vibrations per hour, with 17 jewels, a movement derived from the previous calibre 72A, with an hour counter and column-wheel chronograph sorting. The bracelet is a 19mm Oyster bracelet, with the ever-present Rolex-branded deployant clasp. Why is the Rolex Daytona 6265 “Big Red” a watch with timeless appeal? Because archetypes are immortal.
