More about Daytona SS/SS Silver Dial Circa 1970

This is a c. 1970 stainless steel Rolex Daytona Cosmograph, 6262/6239. It has an integral stainless steel folded-link 7835 Oyster bracelet, and an acrylic crystal. There are round pump chronograph pushbuttons, and a screwed-down case back and winding crown. The 37mm diameter solid three-body case, tachymeter bezel, and bracelet are polished/brushed. The tachymeter graduations on the flat steel bezel are to 300 units-per-hour. The dial is silver with black sub dials, applied steel baton hour markers with luminous dots, luminous steel baton hands, an arrow-tipped center chronograph hand, and there is an outer 1/5 seconds track. It has a subsidiary guilloche dial for the small seconds at 9 o'clock, a 12-hour register at 6 o'clock, and a 30-minute sub dial at the 3 o'clock position. The 13.5mm thick case, dial, and movement are all signed. The mechanical manual winding Rolex caliber 727 movement is rhodium plated. It's constructed with 17 jewels, a straight-line lever escapement, and a monometallic balance adjusted for temperature and 5 positions. It includes a shock absorber mechanism, a self-compensating free-sprung Breguet balance spring, and Microstella regulating screws. The mechanism oscillates at a frequency of 21,600 vph (3 Hz). In 1963 Rolex introduced the first Cosmograph model, the reference 6239. It wasn't named the Daytona until 1964, when Rolex officially sponsored the 24-hour race. After 1969, and the Paul Newman film, Winning, the Daytona became strongly identified with the actor.

I have been dealing with European Watch Company for over ten years, and have purchased several wrist watches, including IWC, Patek Philippe, Rolex, and Jaeger-LeCoultre. They were not only fairly priced but arrived in like-new condition, fully warranted by European Watch Company. This company has an attentive, knowledgeable staff, a large inventory, and is a genuine pleasure to deal with.

Just completed my 7th transaction with EWC and for the 7th time the transaction was smooth, flawless and quick. Joshua is quick to respond to any e-mails and answer any questions. Ashley knows how to complete the necessary paperwork to avoid any delays at Customs as I am located in Canada and all paperwork needs to be completed perfectly which she is an expert at. You only want to deal with the best and the team at EWC is the best. There is a Yiddish word to describe the people at EWC and that word is mensches which translates to people of integrity and honour.

After a lengthy search I located the Patek Philippe I desired at EWC, but the decision to make a high dollar purchase over the internet was a difficult one. Through numerous emails with Justin and looking at reviews of EWC I made the decision to proceed and I am now ECSTATIC. The watch is exactly as described and pictured. It was perfectly packaged and shipped FedEx overnight. My watch collection now includes the watch I have been seeking for over a year.In summary, you can deal with the EWC staff with confidence. They are professional, honest and you will receive a quality watch which will put a smile on your face.

I live in San Francisco but the EWC website is the first place I check once I get an impulse for a particular watch. EWC's website is cozy and feels like home. I enjoy the photos, presentation, description and historical notes of each item and really like their next day delivery, so I stay loyal to them. Sometimes I must wait awhile for a watch to become available but can usually find anything I want. Then there are the watches you never knew you wanted until you see them here.

Dear EWC, I have just completed my very first purchase with your company: a mint Lange Datograph. Robert was extremely help throughout the process with the item delivered nicely packed to my Hong Kong address within days. The condition of the watch was absolutely mint as described and has exceeded my expectations, even under a loupe! I will be a return customer in no time. Well done!
