Footnotes

  • The reference 6204 was presented at the Basel Fair in 1954.

    This model bears many of the known Submariner characteristics but the most obvious difference is the straight hour hand whereas later models were fitted with the so-called Mercedes hand.

    Reference 6204 is illustrated and described in Rolex Submariner by Guido Mondani - Lele Ravagnani, pp.22 - 23 and pp.70 - 73.
