Made for approximately 20 years, the family of Dato Compax includes references 4767, 5036, 6036, and 6236 and has to be considered a landmark model as it represents the first foray of Rolex into the market of complicated timepieces: offering a chronograph function with triple calendar, there was no other Rolex chronograph model presenting more complications. These models were available in either stainless steel, yellow gold, or pink gold, with a variety of different dial designs. Reference 6036, such as the present watch, is probably the best known representative from this family, and was in production for most of the 1950s. The present specimen has an unbelievably crisp and well preserved two body yellow-gold case retaining excellent definition to all edges and preserved in original conditions. The two-tone dial is highlighted by the applied gold numerals and the outer blue date indication with French indication of the triple calendar displayed by the two windows at 12 o’clock. With yellow-gold alpha hands and a wonderful gold Oyster extensible bracelet, the here offered Jean-Claude Killy, name derived from the fact that the Olympic skier wore one of these models, is an outstanding rarity and one of the best and most original examples ever appeared on the market. A most prominent trophy in any Rolex collection in the world.
