The present specimen of pre-Daytona 6238 enchants for its really beautiful preservation and ageing. The three-body stainless steel case is in perfect proportions with sharp edges with still their satin finish and clean case back with screw down. 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 baton 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. Ancestors of the Daytona, the present 6238 comes directly from the personal collection of an important Italian collector that keep the watch for more than 35 years.
