We are proud to present this hitherto unknown Rolex 6270 with its original set of accessories – fresh on the market and in a manner of speaking, straight from the wrist of the original owner in Germany.
The diamond river
This is the rarest, most prestigious and exclusive manual-wind Daytona in the world – the reference 6270 in an 18 K gold case is set with diamonds and sapphires and comes with the 18 K gold Daytona riveted bracelet.
This precious piece in mint condition has never been offered at an auction before; it comes with its original box and outer box, the original punched Rolex certificate with green sticker and country code 100 for Germany, cloth, spare gold links, service information booklet and a Rolex
service warranty card dated April 2012 in Geneva. The case still carries the original service stickers. The watch comes from the property of a German businessman who enjoys being in the company of beautiful objects and who purchased the watch in 1992 from an authorized German Rolex dealer.
FEATURED AUCTION PRESS RELEASE Press release of our 104th auction on May 22, 2021 More than 460 individual lots were listed in the catalogue of Dr. Crott Auctioneers' 104th auction.

FEATURED WATCHMAKING Charles Frodsham & Co. – High-End Watchmaking In keeping with the traditional work of the great chronometer
maker Charles Frodsham (1810-1871) of London, a team of exceptionally skilled watchmakers has created a wristwatch with a
double impulse escapement, developed from the plans drawn up by George Daniels. Stefan Muser is the recipient of one of the
first examples – and goes to collect his watch from London in person.
