There’s something perversely decadent about a gold toolwatch and even more so when it has two bracelet options.
The Italians are known to be stylish and they do not shy away from flaunting precious metal wristwatches. Did you know Italy is the world's largest gold jewellery exporter? Vicenza, a city in Italy, is the most important national production district; and the place where this specific 6265/8 was delivered to a lucky customer in 1983. "Gentiuluomo" -like the previous owner of this lavish chronograph- are the ones who made the Daytona popular and collectible.
Black in yellow gold always works very well and this screw-down Cosmograph is no exception. The contrasting champagne sub-dials are still very clean and the surface of the entire dial is spotless. The luminous compound, a combination of tritium and Zinc sulphide, turned slightly creamy and is still completely present and unmolested. The case condition is close to perfection with its thick lugs and pristine metal bezel.
Over to the bracelet; as we will spoil you with another option. So firstly, it comes with the original Riveted Oyster bracelet and correct Daytona-specific 71 end-links. But on some days you might want to stand out even more: enter this Brick-bracelet with Moreau finish that fits like a charm. Either way you will amaze even the most seasoned connoisseurs with this exquisite 6265/8.
