Watch details

Superlative example of Rolex Pre-Daytona ref 6238, in extraordinary condition. Flawless matte black dial featuring the sought-after and rare, gilt graphics. Perfectly preserved luminous that has acquired a charming orange tone. One of the best examples of a subtle and understated elegance.

Reference 6238 is known as the “Pre-Daytona”, as it is the last chronograph model made before the first Daytona ref 6239, featuring a smooth bezel with a tachometer scale on the edge of the dial with registers of the same color.
