This vintage Rolex Daytona 6263 is perhaps one of the most sought after watches on the planet today. Consider that this watch comes with the original boxes, both inside and out, the original manual, the original bill of sale and the original warranty.
The watch was originally bought from a Canadian retailer and they elected to complete the warranty with the model number on the papers as opposed to the serial number, this however is clearly original and will not affect the value. The bill of sale is dated 1976 for the cost of $675 plus tax.
The watch has just been serviced by Rolex and a restoration service was completed indicating that they have done a full restoration without warranting the timekeeping due to the age of the watch. The service included a new bezel, crystal, crown and pushers. The folded Oyster bracelet, reference 7835, was also restored to near original new condition with a new buckle fitted also.
The dial had been changed prior to servicing, to a black dial with Red Daytona above the bottom register, however the original silver “non-Daytona” model originally sold with the watch was put away many years ago by the original owner who preferred the “Daytona” name on the watch and this original dial will also be sold with the watch.
I think anyone in the market for this watch knows what a plain watch without box or papers will sell for. This watch, with the complete package as well as a complete Rolex service is significantly more expensive, but a must have for the fanatical collector.
Due to the cost of the watch, wire transfers only please.
