Description
Of all of the Daytona references, model 6240 is by far the rarest and most collectable. Introducing the screw-down chronograph pushers, it was available in limited quantities starting in 1965 alongside the 6239/6241 pump-pusher (non-screw-down) models. The 6240 was discontinued when the models 6263/6265 debuted. This is the first water-proof Daytona and, as such, is one of the most important Rolex watches extant.

Original stainless steel case is 37.5mm diameter by 14mm thick, with black bezel with Units per Hour scale, domed plastic crystal, screw down crown and screw down chronograph pushers. Serial number 1659XXX dates production to 1967.

Original, untouched, clean and mint black three color Paul Newman dial. The absence of the word ‘OYSTER’ is consistent with earlier production 6240s. 6240 production was extremely limited.

Original manual winding Rolex Caliber 722-1 with 17 jewels and adjusted in three positions, with column wheel construction, clean and running.

Rolex folded link Oyster bracelet with ‘4 68’ date code.
