Today we are showing you three great chronographs, all currently for sale. There are two screw-down Replica Rolex Daytonas and a waterproof Minerva. Of course, the Christie’s Lesson One Daytona sale back in November sent Daytona interest and prices soaring to new heights. Although the Daytona is by no means a rare Rolex replica watch, finding good examples is getting increasingly difficult. Many are finding their way into permanent collections rather than being passed between dealers, but here we’ve got two killer watches.
Rolex Replica Daytona ref. 6263 with Sigma Dial
The Rolex Replica Daytona reference 6263 with black dial, white registers, screw-down pushers, and a black bezel, is about as classic a vintage Rolex as you’ll find. John Mayer and Ben even discussed the 6263 in the very first Talking Watches. Andrew Shear of Sheartime is selling a spectacular one with a sigma dial, which means that at the bottom edge of the dial, you will see two small sigma symbols on either side of the “T SWISS MADE T.” The sigma symbols mean that the dial has gold indices, in this case white gold. Collectors love the little details on Rolex replica watches, and having the sigma dial makes it more valuable and desirable.
This Rolex replica watches Swiss includes all the original paperwork and has never been polished. Just look at the nice thick lugs and the full kit this comes with. It is clear that the Rolex collector community is increasingly placing value and desirability on unpolished, original thick cases, and this 6263 from 1973 is in mint condition, which you just don’t see too often with Daytonas. Most were bought to be worn, not stashed away in boxes unused, and they show it. This one is available for $42,500 at Sheartime.
Rolex Replica Daytona ref. 6265 with Tropical Dial
Of course, a hot commodity among vintage Rolex collecting are watches that have gone “tropical,” meaning the black color has faded to brown over the years. Matthew Bain is selling a circa 1970 Rolex Replica reference 6265 Daytona, which has a steel bezel and screw-down pushers, with a dial that has turned beautifully and uniformly brown. You can see the condition of the case here, but the chocolate color of the dial really shows through in the picture up top. We saw this watch at the Miami Beach Antique Show back in January and it was one of the highlights of the weekend. The price is $95,000.
