The Rolex Daytona, reference 6262 is one of the rarest vintage Rolex watches ever made. Produced for only a year in 1970, ref. 6262 was a transitional model. Rather than utilizing some of Rolex’s famous technological innovations, such as the “Oyster” case, ref. 6262 offered a combination of luxury and old-fashioned design. Seen by most as ostentatious and impractical, the Dayton ref. 6262 did not sell well, quickly being phased out and replaced with more modern and technically advanced models. Now, however, the Rolex Daytona, ref. 6262 is finally in demand, having become one of the rarest watches ever made by Rolex.
