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. The reference 6034 is one of them: it was launched for the first time in the early 1950s and was later replaced by the 6234 by the end of the same decade. The present watch is an amazing example and attracts for the very well-preserved condition of the two body case, typical feature of this specific reference and of the 6234 since from the later models the case would have been composed by 3. It is characterized by the word “Antimagnetic” on the white patina dial, as well as having both a blue telemetre and a black tachymetre scale, dagger numerals and 3 subsidiary dials for hours, 30 minutes registration and constant seconds.
