Product Description

Reference 6309 is a fusion of the two Rolex models "Turn-O-Graph" and "Datejust". It was advertised with photographs of the United States Air Force Demonstration Squadron Thunderbirds, which soon led to reference 6309 and its successors being referred to as "Thunderbirds".
This watch has an extremely beautiful bezel with perfectly preserved engraving. The dial has acquired a charming patina and features the red "Datejust" logo in the centre as well as the original "roulette" date wheel, which is very rare today.
