HANDS Original


Reference 6234 was made from the 1940s to the 1960s. The reference appears in Rolex catalogues until 1963. It is found in 2 distinct versions: one featuring large counters and the other, such as this example, featuring small counters that do not overlap on the telemeter scale. This example has been very well conserved and is still fitted with its original dial showing some light patina.
