Description

ultra-rare double signature (and retailed by) "Tiffany & Co" signature, steel band "Big Logo", full steel in a remarkable condition, mechanical mouvement Valjoux 72B caliber. With original box. Sober, rare, timeless ! "Queen-Mother" of all the Daytona !

Introduced in 1960 and demarking itself from the older non-oyster Rolex Chronographs, its pure, modern design makes it a milestone in the genesis of the Daytona; the main difference between a late 6238 and and early Daytona are the smooth bezel and the dial that has no constrasting registers, but instead features a plain silver or black dial (or gold). A very understated but modern piece of design.
