The Rolex Turn-O-Graph launched at Baselworld in 1953 can be considered, with all the rights, as the “father” of the Submariner, since it features many aesthetic aspects that is it possible to find on the Submariners. The black dial with the signature Rolex Oyster-Perpetual, the continued track for seconds and minutes, the baton, dot and triangle numerals, the small crown, the black, rotating, graduated bezel and more other. It was the bezel itself that change completely the idea of the watch not only as a useful object capable of showing the time, but also as a real tool instrument for the sport that will be shortly used on other models such as GMT, Submariner and Explorer. The 6202 you can see here, offered with the original certificate, is in great overall condition. The dial has a beautiful patina derived from the age and the hands have the same color of the radium indexes. All these features make this wristwatch a really rare and very collectable piece.
