Footnotes

  • Rolex's Antimagnetic chronograph Ref:6036 with triple date were produced in very few examples in stainless steel, with various dial designs and hand shapes.

    This current example was purchased in London in 1952 by the current owner’s father and remains in original condition throughout. The exceptional condition of the dial and unpolished case, show that this watch has had very little use over its 55 year history, this combined with the Guarantee papers, box and polishing cloth make this one of the finest reference 6036 to come to the market for a long time.
