The Desert Eagle Daytona ref. 6263


Outstanding example of Rolex Daytona ref. 6263, manufactured in 1976.

Reference 6263 was in production from 1969 until 1987 together with its metal-bezel sibling reference 6265.

The final evolution of the manual Daytona line, it is considered the most representative and iconic reference since it incorporates all the details which made the Daytona a masterpiece of design: bezel with black insert bearing a tachymetre scale, screw-down pushers, and the unmistakable Rolex Oyster case.

Along with reference 6265, it featured the upgraded caliber 727.

The black/white chromatic scheme which alternates not only on the dial, but also on the shiny case and the black bezel, creates an undeniably harmonious and eye catching aesthetic impact to the hole timepiece.

Preserved in amazing condition, the present example represents an important step in Rolex history and it is immediately recognizable by its unmistakable dial configuration.

The “Desert Eagle” is an extremely rare personalized dial featuring the United Arab Emirates coat of arms emblem: the UAE Quraysh Hawk rendered in polychrome enamel relief printing which replaces the Rolex signature at 12 o’clock position. 

Above 6 o’clock is the captivating signature of H. H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

This rare dial configuration was made upon special request for Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, with only a handful of examples produced, all with serial numbers close to each other.

The charisma of the present example is finely improved by the tone of the registers which have turned in a subtle and captivating dark purple tone.

The below dial designation “T SWISS T” indicates the indexes to be in white gold.

It definitely represents a dream watch and one of the most rare and collectible Daytona.
