"Pre-Daytona" Chronograph Ref. 6238

€0 EUR

The reference 6238 shows that Rolex had gotten it right with its chronographs well before the Daytona. While it might not have come with contrasting sub-registers yet.

The 6238 is considered to be the pre-Daytona reference; most of the aesthetic codes were already in place, starting with the Oyster case and the pump pushers. It was already powered by a Valjoux 72, the main difference is the inner tachymeter, which the first Daytona would display on its bezel.

The model presented is the Pre-Daytona. A rare model at the junction of the Antimagnetic chronograph with the famous Daytona. A model designed in 1961, elegant and discreet, it secures a privileged place in the world of collecting. It is a round steel case 37mm in diameter with screwed pump pushers, crown and back. A rare and superb black dial with applied baton indexes with luminescent dots (all present).

This 6238 from 1965 is a historical myth brought to the screen by Georges Lazenby in 1969 where he played a James Bond in the film "Aux services de sa Majesté". This fabulous watch marks the history of the chronograph at Rolex, at the dawn of the Daytona. It secures its place as a mythical and historic chronograph.
