Matthew's Note

This is a great example of the Rolex Chronograph reference 6238 known as the pre-Daytona. What is incredible is its provenance. This is the actual watch worn by George Lazenby as James Bond in the 1969 film On Her Majestys Secret Service. This is a very rare opportunity to own a piece of both James Bond history and horological importance. There are some different features on this 6238 which include the black hour and minute hand and the red seconds hand. I am not sure why this was done this way. There is clear provenance on this watch as it was the actual watch that was in a 2003 London Christies Entertainment and Film auction.
