The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona reference 6263 is one of the most desirable chronographs ever produced. This model's distinguishing features are the screw-down pushers and black bezel.

Part of the most appreciated wristwatches, chronographs such as the present reference are cherished by collectors due to their rare nature. Enhancing its appeal, the dial of the timepiece has aged throughout the years from black to a highly attractive and uniform brown shade, a process now referred to amongst collectors as ‘Tropicalization’.
