Rolex Cosmograph Daytona 6239

Addressing the holy grails of watchmaking, is not only difficult, it is also stressful. There has been talk, talk and talk about both of them, you usually occur one feeling of smallness difficult to explain. Today we will try to thresh with the children of Ancienne Gallery Daytonas because these are so extremely difficult to get, and so beloved by collectors and watch lovers.

The fascinating history of this myth Rolex, can be explained seeing the collection of chronographs that had the opportunity to play exclusively at Ancienne Vintage Gallery. Specializing in vintage watches, this well – known experts carefully select home Barcelona ensuring originality parts thereof, as well as its uniqueness. Let’s put our imagination and see what they bring us.

History. Why Daytona?

The story of the most famous chronograph in the world has its beginnings in the 6238 reference Rolex chronograph, called Chronograph, today known as Pre-Daytona. This reference evolved into the reference 6239, a model called Cosmograph chronograph, whose name evoked space travel. His movement caliber Valjoux manual winding 72B, was characterized by its case Oyster, its pressure switches and steel bezel with engraved tachymeter scale. This reference mounted various types of areas, characterized by their color contrast between the sphere and records (sub fields), and the recorded ROLEX COSMOGRAPH.

Finally, on the occasion of the sponsorship by Rolex Nascar US DAYTONA the word appeared in them, a name that has adopted the model for all other references to this day.

 

Among them Rolex produced a more limited alternative known as exotic spheres. The appearance of the famous actor PAUL NEWMAN advertising in a session of photos you sporting a 6239 model with one of these, was responsible for the myth and the new nickname of the sought after areas characterized by a combination of different colors. It is indeed this piece we liked this selection for its enviable condition. It is a 68 year clock but has hardly been used since then, something highly valued in the market today.

In it we see the combination used specifically for such exotic spheres, contrasting the white broken sphere background with black counters but especially also with that of the timer on the periphery of the field in red, matching 3 tones that give a nice sportiness to the sphere. Over the counter chronograph hours at 6 located, the beautiful Daytona inscription in red, with the letter serif Rolex feature.

Aesthetic state:

Draws attention to the good condition of this, with absolutely show any stain or blemish and pretty vintage cream tone acquired by fluorine luminescent needles and indices. Also the sharp angles of the watchcase, simply just pass the fingertips for them to have the feeling of having a new clock hands, clear sign that the clock has never been polished.

Does your bezel? Still impeccable, absolutely it preserves all black graph of numbers, something that usually come off with use. We can say that this is a bezel third series, which corresponds to a year of production, since the tachymeter scale starts at 200 units, unlike the previous two generations that began in 300.

The same feeling we have with the bracelet, series 7835 with 19mm reference terminals 271, dictate exactly what files Rolex. This does not show any slack or damage in addition be marked with the date of production at its end coinciding with the year of production indicates the serial number located between the handles at 6. At 12 and between the handles we can clearly see the reference clock, 6239, coinciding with the inscription inside the lid. It should also emphasize the clarity of both inscriptions between the handles, usually numbering deleted using clock due to rubbing of the box with the terminals.

Caliber:

 

You just need to see your photo. It is the “Naked Maja” section, the famous Valjoux caliber 722-1, evolution caliber 72B and 722, mounted in the references 6239 between 1967 and 1969. unpolluted state.

Finally also discuss his crown and pushers of Oyster Twinlock 600 series These are also perfect magazine and the actuating or wind the watch have the feeling of having hands a newly manufactured part, smooth and precise cutting edge .

Conclusions:

A single piece. No longer small wrist, lightweight, and does not transmit the strength of the current Rolex watches, but what a piece! The historical burden is incomparable, the obstacles they have had to overcome these watches to reach us have not been few. Beginning they were little pieces sold. The Omega Speedmaster of the time had machinery in-house and was quite cheaper. Then over time. We assume that everything has made them so highly valued, and many more than 6 digits in the auctions.

 

The chances of seeing them are vague and touch them, and they will be more in the future. This issue also found in virtually untouched, desire of every collector. Undoubtedly, a necessary condition for those who live with passion watchmaking experience. Watchmaking of yesterday, today, and why not? Always.
