Lot Essay

This attractive reference 6239 Daytona features a hidden gem on the inside of its case back. It is stamped ‘6242’ which does not correspond to any reference offered by Rolex. These case backs were made as prototypes and used on the reference 6262 Yacht-Master prototype. Other examples of 6239s with this case back have been found, all within a close serial range.
This watch offers the chance to own a very nice example of the first reference Daytona with a small variation that sets it apart.
