Gorgeous example of steel Rolex “Pre-Daytona” ref. 6234, manufactured in 1958.
Launched in 1955, reference 6234 was produced in a variety of case and dial combinations. Rolex ceased its production in 1961 and replaced it with reference 6238.
The present chronograph, cased in stainless steel, is preserved in overall excellent condition. It features a charismatic dial with big registers and the inner black tachymeter and blue telemeter scale.
It definitely represents a superb example of sporty and understated elegance.
