With Rolex period green presentation box.
Consigned by a private collector, the present watch is preserved in very attractive, original overall condition.
Reference 6241 was introduced into the market in the early 1960s and remained in production until around 1969. Available in stainless steel, 14K and 18K gold, it was fitted with the "non-Oyster" or "non-screw down" chronograph buttons and a bezel with black plastic insert, the tachymetre scale printed in white. Models in 14K gold, such as the present watch, were exclusively reserved for the North American market. The dials featured the designations "Rolex Cosmograph" but not always the "Daytona". The so-called "exotic" Paul Newman dials also available for reference 6241 were in two-coloured white/cream and black.
