The steel Paul Newman ref. 6241


Outstanding example of steel Daytona “Paul Newman” ref. 6241 manufactured in 1969.

Rolex’s Daytona chronograph sits in the pantheon of the greatest timepieces ever produced.

First released in 1963 with reference 6239, the model has evolved gracefully over the last five decades, and has become a grail watch amongst collectors. 

Reference 6241 was produced from 1966 to 1969: no more than 3000 examples were manufactured, with only a small number fitted with the iconic “Paul Newman” dial.

Officially named the “exotic” dial by Rolex and now known worldwide as “Paul Newman” dials, they were poorly received by the market and discontinued at the beginning of the 1970s. Today, Paul Newman Daytonas have become the most coveted vintage chronographs wristwatch.

The style of the Tri-coloured “Paul Newman” dial of reference 6241 is identical to Mr. Newman’s personal ref. 6239, with a distinctive trait that a keen eye may notice: the slanted “T SWISS T” featured in red writing underneath the 6 o’clock position instead of the flat “T SWISS T” featured on the other reference. 

Moreover, the cases were produced with two profiles with examples made before 1966 featuring a rounder appearance and the later examples featuring a rather oval appearance.

The present example 6241 is wonderfully preserved, both for its dial and case.

The charming white background of the dial features the red Daytona designation at 6 o’clock position and it creates a perfect harmony with the black and red outer second track and the black acrylic bezel. 

The luminous hour markers, which have aged to a sandy yellow hue, are fully intact.

The distinctive round pushers give a final touch of elegance to the whole watch.

It definitely represents an extraordinary opportunity for connoisseurs of exceptional timepieces.
