Footnotes

  • Introduced in 1964, the Rolex chronograph reference 6238 is better known as the "pre-Daytona". It was the transition model between the earlier non-Oyster cased Rolex chronograph and the Daytona model. The 6238 is rarer in gold than stainless steel, as the watch was in the Rolex catalogue for a brief period.
