Given the current frenzy around the Rolex Daytona with the Paul Newman dial, it will be interesting to follow the bidding on this example. Importantly, the second generation pushers are spot-on for a reference 6263 from 1972. However, as any small imperfection can heavily impact final value, it needs to pointed out that the lume dot at 9 o’clock is not intact and that the 357 endlinks are incorrect for the reference – those should be the reference 571. While the latter would be marginally more expensive to source afterwards, the fitting of 357 endlinks could in the long run damage the area under the lugs as they don’t taper perfectly, as shown in the picture below. The lot 145 is estimated between 100,000 to 150,000 euro (or $110,000 to $165,000), and you can find the full description here.
