The Rolex DateJust Turn-o-graph, or "Thunderbird", is the ultimate proof that a sports watch can be elegant and fine! Designed by Rolex to provide its customers with a less expensive alternative to chronographs, this little marvel of watchmaking is equipped with a rotating bezel graduated over 60 minutes, which simply allowed the time to be measured by placing the index of the bezel on the minute hand.

This rare iteration, the 6609, with its cousin reference the 6202 Turn-o-graph were probably the two most successful models at the time at Rolex, after the Daytona. The model that accompanies this announcement dates from 1958. With a 36mm steel Oyster case, it has a white gold bezel, a cream dial in superb condition that takes on beautiful reflections in the sun.

An unusual reference, ultra-class, and the opportunity to get a real piece of history, because its nickname is not found at random: it is indeed this precise reference, with a custom dial, which was provided to the squadron of fighter pilots "Thunderbirds" in the mid 50s!
