Our opinion: The Predaytona is the last generation of chronographs preceding the daytona released in 1963, with several references in succession: 6034, 6234 and 6238 being the last produced of these series. Released in 1962/63, they were always produced at the same time as the first daytona reference ref 6239. Several dials were used in this reference, including some extremely rare ones such as black gilt. This model was also used in a James Bond film. A rare first version of the typical underline dial produced in a short space of time in 1963, its particular texture is unique to the 6238 in white gilt dial, as they are almost exclusively found in silver dial, which makes the watch a little smaller on the wrist. A true collector's item, with a dial in excellent condition and a serial number that perfectly matches its year of production.
