Notes

As it is often the case, there is a small batch of serials where reference 6240 is equipped with non-oyster black Paul Newman dials. The reference 6240 was considered a test reference due to the fact that it was the first reference to feature screw-down pushers. For that reason it is also common to find this reference fitted with 722-1 movements. Caseback punched with reference 6240.
