Default Classic Cosmograph Ads

[Credit: All pictures and text by Subfiend unless noted otherwise]

This British advertisement from 1966 is similar to the one seen on p. 156 of Skeet & Urul's "Vintage Rolex Sports Models," except it has prices listed for the DJ, 5513 Sub with Explorer dial and the Cosmograph Ref. 6239 model.

Introducing the "new" Rolex chronograph, the "Le Mans." Circa 1964, one year before Rolex settled on the name Daytona.




[Mod's note: Amusingly, the watch is pictured upside down. A bit of a proof-reading "oops!" like in this H&K ad...;]
