In this episode of “What Is On My Wrist” Cam takes us through an interesting Daytona Ref 6265 from 1974. This 1974 Daytona Ref. 6265 example, often referred to as a “ROC” dial and also as a “Big Eyes” Daytona. This is an early dial variant that only bears the words Rolex Oyster Cosmograph and lacks the red Daytona text above the 6 o’clock subdial. The nickname “Big Eyes” was coined by Rolex collectors to highlight the fact that the chronograph counters of this type of dial are larger than normal. The silver dial with the offset crisp black matte subdials sets the tone for the watch’s appearance. The watch really pops due to the three black sub-dials on the silver dial and The stainless steel bezel is in wonderful and almost perfect condition and frames the dial perfectly.
