Lot Essay

Preceding the Cosmograph Daytona family of watches, the Oyster chronograph reference 6234 is one of Rolex's most timeless watches, effortlessly combining a sporty look with elegant, understated flair. Vintage Rolex chronographs with box and guarantees are extremely rare to find and a delight to astute collectors. The dagger numerals, small subsidiary dials and blue telemeter scale work together nicely to create an informal yet refined look. The present piece is offered in outstanding condition, the dial absolutely untouched, perfectly preserved and with the luminous material evenly aged to an attractive hue. Furthermore, the present example is offered with its original Rolex Guarantee and presentation box making it 'complete' and an impressive asset to any collection.

Different examples of reference 6234 are illustrated in 100 Superlative Rolex Watches by John Goldberger, pp. 120-127, as well as in I Cronografi Rolex - La Leggenda, Pucci Papaleo Editore, pp. 254-276
