Lot Essay

Preceding the Cosmograph Daytona family of watches, the Oyster chronograph reference 6234 is one of Rolex's most timeless watches, effortlessly combining a sporty look with elegant, understated flair. Produced in 18k and 14k gold, the majority were cased in steel- fitting for a sports model. The dagger numerals, small subsidiary dials and blue telemeter scale work together nicely to create an informal yet refined look.

Different examples of reference 6234 are illustrated in 100 Superlative Rolex Watches by John Goldberger, pp. 120-127, as well as in I Cronografi Rolex - La Leggenda, Pucci Papaleo Editore, pp. 254-276
