Notes

Provenance Antiquorum, Geneva, June 14, 2003, lot 99, sold for the amount of CHF 20 700.- Rolex Reference 6613 Day-Date This reference is extremely rare. Only one example can be found in literature, which is published by John Goldberger in 100 Superlative Rolex Watches. In his book, the watch illustrated is fitted with dial's numerals and calendar apertures in Arabic script. Very few other references 6613 can be found offered on the international auction market, which highlights the rarity and importance of the present watch.
