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 in 1965 in tandem with the 6239/6241 pump-pusher models-both utilizing the Valjoux 722 movement. This watch is one of the earliest observed 6240 Daytonas.

Original stainless steel case is 37mm diameter by 14mm thick, with white bezel with Units per Hour scale, domed plastic crystal, screw down crown and screw down chronograph pushers. Serial number dates production to 1965

The absence of the word ‘OYSTER’ is consistent with both 1965 and normal non-PN dials for this reference. This can be considered the earliest—or first generation screw-down Paul Newman dial models. Original manual winding Rolex Caliber 722-1 with 17 jewels and adjusted in three positions, with column wheel construction, pristine and running well.
