A Rolex Daytona timepiece is one of the most iconic watches that Rolex has ever produced: much of the success of the modern-day Daytonas can be attributed to the various Rolex chronographs that came before them. Preceding the Cosmograph Daytona family of watches, the Oyster chronograph reference 6234 is one of Rolex’s most sought-after watches, effortlessly combining a sporty look with elegant flair. This model followed the reference 6034 composed by a two-body case made in solid yellow-gold that shows intact and very crisp stamps. The yellow-gold dagger numerals and alpha hands are the original one with still the same luminous material and the silver dial is aged perfectly with a charm champagne patina completed by the black outside tachymetric scale. Examples of any reference 6234 presented in such excellent condition fitted with such dials have rarely appeared on the market so far, making the present lot a must-have for collectors of vintage Rolex sports watches.
