Guarded Crown is pleased to offer this one owner, full set, stainless steel Rolex Daytona watch with a 5 million serial number and reference number 6265. This timepiece has a silver dial with black registers. The dial has “DAYTONA” printed in red and is referred to as “Big Red Daytona”.  This case serial dates the case production to approximately 1978, and it is fitted to its original Rolex Oyster 78350 bracelet, which has a G date code (1982). The warranty papers are dated 1986, and as the original owner stated, it sat in the window for years. Oh, how times have changed. This Big Red is the most complete and thoroughly documented watch that we have ever seen, and it will make a wonderful addition to the most discerning aficionado’s collection. There are a plethora of items included in this package, from original sales receipts, a service box, a display box, manuals galore, claim checks, service papers, a business card, a charge account card from the Authorized Dealer and even contemporaneous notes related to the watch. This is truly a special piece.
