Long time no see! Itfs Takaoka of Jack Road, the one in charge of buying antiques.
Breaking News !!!!!!!!
There are five antique Rolex Daytona watches to be introduced today!
Five rare pieces with even rarer search results on certain shopping sites, It is a sight that can only be described as a miracle.
So, in this article, we will be sharing such miracles with everyone, I would like to briefly introduce the characteristics of each individual watch.
Firstly, rare hand-wound Daytonas with soaring market prices.
In particular, highly-valued watches with initial original parts that have not been replaced.
What amazed me is that something that was 50 years old is maintained in its original form.
Let's look at each feature immediately.
Rolex Daytona-6263 without the "DAYTONA" notation
Here is the first piece today.
It is a 6263 without the "DAYTONA" notation on the dial.
The sigma mark at 6 o'clock indicates that this is the initial dial.
It is the pusher part of the watch that you want to pay attention to besides the rare initial dial.
The "no groove" pusher, letfs you know at a glance that it is an original part right away.
Even with a combination of a black bezel and black dial, it does not give off a gtoo-heavy impressionh, and the overall balanced design is also attractive.
Rolex Daytona-6263 "Big Logo" and "Big Red"
Next we have these two---"Big Logo" and "Big Red"
Popular even among the 6263 models.
As the name suggests, the main focus of this watch is "DAYTONA" logo printed in red at the top of the indial at the 6 ofclock dial.
Rolex Daytona-Black dial of 6265 "Big Daytona"
Therefs still more to come! Next we have-.
Even within the 6265 models, the ever popular black gBig Daytonah
The 6265 uses stainless steel and a thick bezel, thus giving off a different vibe from the 6263.
Rolex Daytona-6265, First-edition Dial without the gDAYTONAh notation
The last piece that we would like to showcase.
The 6265, original dial without the DAYTONA notation.
Similar to the first watch above, there is a sigma mark on the 6 ofclock indial.
The appeal of the 6263 comes from the rare first-edition watch dial.
Our main theme this time was the rarity of the products. However, that alone does not determine their high price point. Similar to the Zenith El Primero 16520 or the 116520 with our company-original watch movement and the current 116500, it is exactly because of itfs long history and accumulated popularity that the hand-wound Daytona series remains popular to this day. With the flagship gDaytona Paul Newmanh now not found anywhere in the market, other hand-wound watches are also slowly fading from stores worldwide. Thus, it brings me great joy to have the chance to introduce these watches to our readers today. I hope that from now on, we can have more chances to explore the world of rare history-rich watches together.> > vintage Rolex Cosmograph Daytona
