Rolex “The Gold Pre-Daytona ref. 6238”. Status: sold

Exceedingly rare gold Rolex “Pre-Daytona” ref. 6238, manufactured in 1965.
Made for the North American market, the present 14k yellow gold example is preserved in outstanding condition.
The dial features the inner tachymeter scale in blue, the writing “Anti-Magnetique” and the “T-SWISS-T” at lower edge by 6 o’clock.

Launched in 1960, the “Pre-Daytona” ref. 6238 is the immediate predecessor of the 6239 the very first Daytona reference. It is the last Rolex chronograph to feature a plain bezel and an inner tachymeter scale. Produced predominantly in stainless steel, only a few examples were made in gold.
It definitely represents a great example of sporty elegance.
