Purchased 6263 Daytona from an original owner..

I purchased this piece a little while ago from the original owner, fortunate for me they kept it in the safety deposit box since new. I really like how the dial turned a light grey

I know it has been difficult to find original owner watches lately, does anyone else have any success stories?

Absolutely beautiful! I much prefer the older, simpler Daytona.

Completely agreed, there is not much not to love about the 6263s

That is a real unicorn to find.

Original owner had saved it in the safe deposit box and never worn? Or like new? It looks perfect.

Did they also save the box and papers?
(I hope)
