Rolex’s “Antimagnetic” chronographs with triple date were produced in few examples from
the mid-1940s to the early-1960s, in 18K yellow or 18K pink gold and in very few examples in
stainless steel, with various dial designs and hand shapes and with four different references:
• In the mid-1940s:Ref. 4767.
• From 1948 to 1951:Ref. 5036.
• From 1951 to 1955:Ref 6036, so-called by collectors the “Jean-Claude Killy” (after
international ski champion Jean-Claude Killy, who first became famous in the 1960s). This
reference was produced in 170 examples in yellow gold, 144 examples in pink gold and very
few in stainless steel.
• From 1958 to 1962:Ref. 6236.
This current example has been maintained in very good condition featuring an original dial.
Jean-Claude Killy (born August 30, 1943)
A French Alpine skier and a triple Olympic champion. He was a World Cup champion in 1967
and again in 1968. Killy won the Triple Crown of Alpine Skiing with a sweep of all three gold
medals at the 1968 Winter Olympics in Grenoble, France, in the slalom, giant slalom and
downhill events. He later even held a position on the Rolex board of directors.
