Lot Essay

Examples of reference 6034 with black dials are extremely rare. It is not uncommon for Rolex wristwatches with black dials from the 1950s to age or discolor to brown. For an example of a similar model with an aged black/brown dial, see The Best of Time - Rolex Wristwatches by James M. Dowling & Jeffrey P. Hess, p. 230.
