Staying true to earlier chronograph references of the manufacture, the 6265 was produced with the Valjoux caliber 727, screw down chronograph pushers and a metallic bezel graduated to 200 units per hours. The popular reference was introduced in 1971 and continued in production until 1988. Accompanied by a Rolex box.
