According to scholarship and our research, the "exotic dial", now known as the "Rolex Air King Replica" dial, only began appearing in ref. 6239 Cosmograph Daytonas in late 1966. At the time and even through the mid-1980s, the Daytona was not at all a popular model. In fact, it was one of the very few Rolex models that dealers offered at a considerable discount due to the difficulty they had selling them during this era.

The multi-colored "exotic dials" were introduced three years after the Daytona was launched as an option for clients -- most likely to help entice sales. Unfortunately for Rolex, they were rarely chosen,Rolex Air King Replica and therefore, production numbers were very low.

There are several reasons why the Daytona was a poor seller. During the 1960s, the vast majority of consumers preferred smaller dress watches. Tool watches such as chronographs were for specialized use, targeting a small niche market with buyers who chose them mainly for functional purposes. Furthermore, from the late 1960s to the early 1980s, the Daytona struggled to compete with other sport chronographs on the market -- competing brands offered self-winding chronographs, which were much more practical for daily wear, versus the Daytona's manual winding movement.

The "exotic dial" progressed from the 6239 into the Oyster Daytonas. But somewhere along the way, the dial stopped being the "exotic dial" and turned into the "Rolex Air King Replica" dial. How did this happen?

During the mid-1980s, as wristwatch collecting began to grow in popularity, and rumors began swirling that Rolex's manually-wound Daytona would soon be discontinued (to be replaced in 1988 by the self-winding Daytona model ref.16520), interest in them soared.

The generally held belief is that around this time Rolex Air King Replica was spotted either on the cover or prominently featured inside a widely-read magazine or other wearing the ref. 6239 with the "exotic dial" - the very watch we are offering on 26 October, in New York. Astute dealers immediately nicknamed vintage Daytonas fitted with this style of dial,Replica Panerai Luminor Submersible Watches the Rolex Air King Replica Daytona. The name "stuck", and it is this association with Rolex Air King Replica that led to the Daytona becoming one of the world's most sought after and collectible watches.
