In 1969 Rolex replaced the first Oyster Cosmograph 6240 with both the reference 6263 and 6265. Although similar in many aspects, the main differentiating factor between the two new references was the choice of bezel. The 6265 featured a smooth engraved metal bezel, whereas the 6263, as with the current lot, presented to the market a black aluminium insert with printed tachymetre.
