Rolex “Honeycomb Split-Logo 6202” Turn-O-Graph



Up for grabs is an exceptional and incredibly rare/important Rolex Turn-O-Graph, reference 6202, circa 1953.  The Turn-O-Graph has achieved legendary status in the vintage Rolex world as the pre-cursor to the mighty Submariner, and the first watch to feature a rotating bezel by the brand.  Clearly the design influence for the Submariner, the Turn-O-Graph was produced with a similar waterproof case for diving, and made in a smaller size, coming in at 36mm.  This particular Turn-O-Graph happens to be one of the rarest of all, featuring a very early “honeycomb” and “split logo” gilt dial, with matching early bezel insert, before Rolex incorporated the “red triangle” at 12 o’clock.

This particular Rolex Turn-O-Graph is in exceptional condition, likely one of the best in the world.  The case appears unpolished, with normal wear for a 70 year old watch (most noticeably, a small ding in the bottom right lug).  The dial is exceptionally well-preserved, with no major flaws or wear.  Likewise, the original radium lume is still present and in-tact on both dial and hands, aged to a nice and vibrant yellow color.  The original bezel insert is in similar excellent condition, with minimal wear.

This is truly a world-class example, and extremely to find in this condition (well, difficult to find period!). If you are in the market for a very special and top shelf vintage Rolex, this is one to strongly consider.
