Rolex ref 6234 Pre-Daytona Anti Magnetic Chronograph circa 1957
Rolex Pre Daytona ref 6234 Cosmograph serial# 269,xxx circa 1957. Featuring a 36mm diameter Oyster case with round pushers, screw down case back and screw down crown and with original dial, hands, and lume plots. Featuring an off white original dial that has aged and developed a rich vintage character. The dial features raised triangular indexes, aged patina’d lume plots, tapered dauphine original lume hands. With outer black printed tachometer scale and blue printed telemeter scale. Powered by calibre 722 manual wind movement with registers for 30 minutes, 12 hours, and constant seconds. The dial is signed Rolex Oyster Chronograph Anti Magnetic SWISS. The 6234 models are far rarer than any of the more well known and recognized “Daytona” models. The Daytona models are most readily distinguished by the tachometer scale being engraved on the bezel, whereas the 6234 and the next generation 6238, feature smooth bezels with the tachometer scale printed on the dial perimeter. We think 6234’s such as this example represent great value compared to the very high premium prices of the Daytona models, and most certainly the very high prices now being achieved by the Zenith and cerachrome bezel Daytona models. The current model is a fine, all original condition model, showing great character, and with a great vintage look paired with one of our vintage sport style straps. Guaranteed genuine and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate time keeping and operation. Your purchase includes one of our signature fine leather watch pouches, ideal for travel and storage, a $55.00 value.
