Footnotes

  • The reference 6238 is often referred to amongst collectors as the "Pre-Daytona" and was launched in 1960.

    The "Pre-Daytona" with the silvered dial is the first Rolex chronograph to be fitted with the sunburst finished dial, officially referred to as "cadran soleil argent". The new dial finish and baton-shaped hands can be found on all Rolex Daytona chronographs up to the mid 1980s.
