Mind-blowing Daytona from 1979 in 18K yellow gold.

Museum Piece
Rolex DaytonaIn the 60’s Rolex made some changes in their chronograph line.
Mind-blowing Daytona from 1979 in 18K yellow gold. This fine specimen is a collectors dream, let us inform you why. Obviously the Daytona is one of the most sought-after models nowadays. But back when they were still fitted with a manual winding Valjoux movement, these chronographs were hard sellers for the boutiques, hence small production numbers of each reference; most of them in steel. The Daytona's in precious metal are even more uncommon!The 6265 is fitted with screw-down pushers and 18K yellow gold bezel. Both the steel as the gold ones feature a Valjoux 727 movement, yet only the gold models were supplied with COSC certification and the extra lines "Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified" on the dial. The matte black dial features the text in the same colour as the champagne sub-dials. The condition is extra-ordinary with all lume plots still intact. The case is strong and equipped with the original "7205" riveted Oyster bracelet with "71" end-links. Both the serial as well as the reference number are clearly visible and the hallmarks are very present. The condition you can expect from your favourite vintage watch dealer.
