Does one already know regarding the brand name this excellent model?David: During the was drafted in 1942 and issued a Rolex bubble back together with the Roman and Arabic numerals, and so i was acquainted with the manufacturer. I became wearing a Gallet Chronograph ($50USD new in 1959) daily since Christmas 1959 and wanted a particular reward for passing an essential exam. I attended a jeweler and considered catalogs since none ever had chronographs in stock in 1968. I picked the 6238 since i liked the clean uncluttered appearance when compared to the busy dial of the Gallet ( i always have and wear).Maybe you have put it on lots when you purchased it, as well as in the past few years ever since the value improved?

My latest purchase is undoubtedly an O&W Aviation 34017 33 with 24 hour dial.The 6238 is I suppose the "Crown Jewel" of my collection determined by robustness of ownership and appreciation worthwhile. Walking out to being shocked as i started online in the late 1990s an found out that we were looking at worth $10,000 or more. The biggest auction price I know of was around $40,000 back 2006 before the disaster happened.Would you ever consider have a look at Rolex again? Being a Daytona or perhaps a Submariner?I have considered some Rolex chronographs nevertheless the ones I prefer are from my range of prices.
