The Rolex Reference 6062 stands as a monumental achievement in horological craftsmanship, masterfully combining elegance with technical innovation to forge a watch of timeless appeal. Within the prestigious old catalogue of Rolex, the 6062 occupies a unique position as one of the mere two models to feature the enchanting moon phase complication, alongside the 8171. Yet, the 6062 distinguishes itself through its exclusive case design, incorporating a sturdy screw-back case that significantly enhances its water resistance—a notable feat for its era. Unveiled at the Basel Fair in 1950, the reference 6062 signified a critical milestone for Rolex, marking the brand’s initial venture into automatic wristwatches endowed with both date and moon phase functions within a waterproof casing. Offered in stainless steel, yellow gold, or pink gold, this model catered to a variety of preferences with its diverse dial options. Among the yellow gold productions, merely a handful have emerged on the collectors’ market, each displaying unique index configurations such as the esteemed “Pyramid” indexes featured in this example. These “Pyramid” indexes, alongside the broad luminous hands, contribute to a dial layout that is as unique as it is legible, albeit with the indexes positioned more obliquely and inward than standard, and the hands containing a larger amount of luminous material than other variants. Crafted by Genex, the acclaimed case-making division of Gay Frères in Geneva, the gold case carries the master case maker’s mark 12—evidence of its superior quality and authenticity. Remarkably, the case back preserves the rare inscription “Registered Design—Modele Depose,” highlighting the watch’s unparalleled preservation and scarcity. The dial of this reference 6062 radiates with a captivating light tobacco patina, imbuing it with personality and an enduring charm. The deep blue numerals on the outer track, in conjunction with the exquisitely designed day and date windows, further augment the dial’s enchantment. The moon phase disk, executed by Stern Frères using the refined blue enamel champlevé technique, is a testament to the meticulous attention to detail and exemplary craftsmanship that went into the watch’s creation. In pristine, nearly new old-stock condition, with all original engravings intact on the case back, this Rolex Reference 6062 is a remarkable discovery for the discerning collector. Its scarcity, exceptional state, and superior craftsmanship position it as a true masterpiece of horology, destined for admiration and value across generations. Its exclusivity is further highlighted by its old origin from one of the most esteemed collections worldwide, the Mondani collection, and its 2006 auction sale. The strap, preserved as depicted in the Mondani catalogue, maintains a link to its noble history. This specific reference 6062, with its rare “Pyramid” indexes dial, epitomizes the pinnacle of Rolex’s artistry and innovative spirit. Part of the Rolex Connoisseurs Collection, it presents a singular acquisition opportunity for the most perceptive of collectors and horology aficionados, offering not just a remarkable watch but also a tangible segment of Rolex’s illustrious heritage.
