The present watch, property of a Private Collector, is a most beautiful and desirable example of the legendary reference 6236 - made in 1960, it has preserved a very good original condition. The charismatic dial reflects a great shine with no signs of any restoration and enhances the overall look of this celebrated chronograph watch.
Reference 6236 was the final version of the celebrated Datocompax model. In production between 1958 and 1962, it is easily identifiable by the larger bezel compared to its predecessors. In fact, the case of reference 6236 is made of three elements, the bezel no longer carved from the same block as the centrepiece of the case.
The model is described and illustrated in I Cronografi Rolex - La Leggenda, Pucci Papaleo Editore, pp. 402 - 409.
