This is a grail Rolex Daytona Paul Newman reference 6263 from the early 1970s. The 6263 model Paul Newman with the screw down pushers is a very rare model especially compared to a Paul Newman with pump pushers like the references 6239 and 6241. This watch is known as the "Panda" due to the black and white color of the dial and is highly sought after by Daytona collectors around the world.
The Panda was only produced for several years in the early 1970s so there are limited number of these watches available on the market. This particular example is in museum quality condition which is extremely difficult to find today. The dial is absolutely in mint condition and highly attractive with bright color and fully intact luminescent dots. The case is also in mint condition maintaining its original form and the original period acrylic bezel which are usually flawed.
On top of the rarity and condition of this Paul Newman Daytona, the watch comes with the original Rolex Service guarantee from 1978 and original box. This 6263 comes on the original fold over band with the proper reference and end pieces.
