Today, I will appreciate a scarce Rolex watch with you. It is Rolex’s first chronograph watch, the predecessor of the Daytona series, and it is called Pre-DAYTONA in the watch industry. Ref.6238 was produced in the second half of the 1950s to the 1960s. Even after half a century, its popularity has endured for a long time, and it is The Dream Watch of many labor fans.
The design feature of Pre-DAYTONA lies in the position of the tachymeter symbol, which is not on the outer bezel but built into the dial. And the color of the outer dial and the small tachymeter dial is the same, so compared with the later Daytona series, it does not give people a strong sense of movement. In terms of movement, it uses the same movement as the original Daytona. It is Rolex’s original improved equipment based on Valjoux Cal.72, designed Cal.72B movement and Cal.722-1 movement, with small seconds, 30-minute speedometer, and 12-hour speedometer. Noob replica watches.
Ref.6238, as the predecessor of Daytona, is the historical model of the Rolex flagship and has a high reputation among many antique Rolex. Fake Rolex watches.
From the pictures, compared with the later Daytona series watches, Ref.6238 lacks the rough chronograph bezel and adopts a smooth bezel similar to that of Tan 1. The overall feeling is exquisite. After half a century of precipitation, the natural aging and discoloration of the silver dial and luminous material add a sense of historical vicissitudes to the elegant appearance, and you can feel its changes when you hold it in your hand—a heavy sense of historical weight.
