About This Rolex

The pre-Daytonas comprised of 6034, 6234, and 6238, and were the inspiration for the famous Daytona design that Paul Newman brought to ubiquity. Experts estimate that only 2,300 of the 6234 were ever produced from their production run in 1955-1961. Pre-Daytonas were handmade to an extent and thus have slight variations, like subdial size or anti-magnetic position.
