The present example can be considered one of the most unadulterated 6241s to ever appear on the market. The satin finish on the lugs is immaculate. The case has obviously never been polished and showcases its full proportions and sharp angles. The black bezel is pristine, without as much as a scratch on it. The dial is a feast for the eyes: not only it is absolutely untouched, but the only sign of its nearly 50 years of age is the color shift of the outer track and counters, which are now a deep, rich chocolate brown, making this timepiece a tropical Paul Newman. The color shifting is due to chemical reactions of the paint with UV components of natural light, heat and humidity. It imparts to the watch an incredibly charismatic allure, and it is a most appreciated feature by Rolex collectors, due to its rarity, especially when the shifting is as homogeneous as in this case, as well as laymen, because of its undeniable aesthetic appeal. Combining the rarity of reference 6241, incredible condition, and a tropical Paul Newman dial, this timepiece will surely be source of endless satisfaction for its new lucky owner.
