Produced from the early 1960 until 1967, the reference 6238 became known as the “Pre-Daytona” because following this model, Rolex removed the tachymeter scale from the dial and added it to the bezel. The present specimen of Pre Daytona 6238 enchants for its really beautiful preservation and aging. The three-body yellow-gold case is in perfect proportions with sharp edges and clean screw down case back. The argentè dial has that charm that only some watches are able to emanate, with a catching conservation that has been able to survive in all these years. The applied dagger indexes and the hands with luminous material are a further preciousness that increase the attractiveness of this watch together with the typical sunken subsidiary dials. Moreover, the dial configuration is the most sought after with blue tachymeter and red telemeter scales, both perfectly intact.
