Catalogue Note

The reference 6240 is regarded as an experimental watch and was only produced for a very limited time between 1965 and 1969. It was the first water resistant Cosmograph, differing from the references 6239 and 6241 by having screw-down chronograph pushers. It was replaced by the reference 6263 at the end of its production period in 1969. 

The present lot is retained in an honest condition, and the serial number matches what research believes to be correct for Rolex 6240 with originally fitted Paul Newman dials. They should, just like the present lot, be starting with 1'658'XXX.
