The 6265 was introduced in 1971, still ftted with a screwed down pusher and now with a solid steel bezel. The production span of the 6265 lasted for 17 years when it was seized in 1988, replaced by the new era of the Daytona series, ftted with a Zenith El Primero based cal. 4030. Over the 17-year long production of the 6265, variants were available in yellow gold ftted with either a black or a gold dial. The present example is a beautiful example of a 6265 in yellow gold ftted with an attractive gold dial matching the color of the case.
