Nicknamed “Big Red” after the large Daytona writing above the lower hour chronograph register, this dial stands apart from most other screw-down, steel Daytonas. It is one of the most sought-after references after the Paul Newman set and adorns other nicknames such as the Oyster Down (Oyster Sotto) Big Red 6263 or ROC Big Red 6263. The black dial version is more popular with collectors and ROC refers to the order of wording Rolex Oyster Cosmograph.

The dial is in excellent condition, with lume spots showing some minor aging in their shape. The 37mm steel case has no sign of dents or nicks and only slight signs of polishing or re-brushing, indicating this watch has been very well looked after. The bracelet is also in excellent condition.

The movement is a manual wind calibre 727 and watch serial 605****. The watch comes on an Oyster 78350/19 with 57 end links and a VC deployment clasp. It has a full set of original box and papers dated 8th July 1981 and additional booklets.
