The Tropical Oyster Paul Newman ref. 6263


Outstanding example of Rolex “Daytona ref. 6263”, manufactured in 1972. 

Introduced in 1969, Reference 6263 evolved from earlier models, inheriting features from reference 6240, the first Daytona fitted with a black acrylic bezel and screw down pushers, making the case fully waterproof and earning it the designation of “Oyster”. 

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

The present example is definitely one of the most beautiful and important Paul Newman ever appeared in the market.

Fitted with a stunning Mark 2 “Panda” dial, it is preserved in outstanding overall condition.

The dial is absolutely flawless, with no marks or scratches. The white grené surface is clean and very bright and all the luminous hour markers are perfectly intact. 

The stunning warm chocolate brown tone of the outer minute track enhances its incredible charme and rarity, making it the “non plus ultra” of all Paul Newman models.
