2. Rolex Daytona 6263 ‘Big Red’

If we take a closer look at Ryan’s watch, we can see that he is a proud owner of one vintage Rolex Cosmograph Daytona ‘Big Red’ watch ref 6263.

‘Cosmograph’ is Rolex’s term for a chronograph, and it’s a brand that embraced this name to set itself apart from other luxury watch options available in the market at that time.

Along with Daytona 6265, the Daytona 6263 was designed from 1971 to 1987. The 6263 has been equipped with black acrylic bezel pull-out, and the 6265 was prepared with metal bezel incised with a tachymeter scale. Apart from the bezel, both are identical watches.

The Daytona 6263 that is worn by Ryan, is special, particularly as it sports a ‘Big Red’ dial. The nickname ‘Big Red’ is derived from a large red label of ‘Daytona’ above its 6 o’clock register. The ‘Big Red’, a rare variant of the Daytona, is found on both black and white dials.

The Rolex owned by Ryan has a black bezel, a white dial, black contrasting sub-dials, and the red Daytona. This combines to make a stunningly balanced sports watch. Finishing the dial’s look are silver hour makers accented with the silver luminescent minute and hour hands, small lume plots, and, at 12 o’clock, the silver Rolex coronet.

This ‘Big Red’ dial has been housed within a Rolex Oyster case. 37mm, during this era, was considered a sporty and large size. However, today, for a men’s watch, 37mm dial is pretty restrained.

The vintage Daytona will go from formal tuxedo evening wear to casual daytime wear. During every award show, Ryan has been seen wearing Daytona 6263. This iconic piece looked good with Ryan’s black-tie suit.

  • Diameter: 37mm
  • Price: $97,500
  • Water Resistance: 100m
  • Release Year: 1971
