Rolex Ref 6034 Once Owned by Legendary Musician to Be Auctioned

This Rolex Ref 6034, a “pre-Daytona” chronograph in pink gold, was once owned by legendary musician — and watch collector — Eric Clapton.  And it will hit the auction block just 3 days from now, in Auctionata’s “Patek Philippe and Rolex Only” online sale. The last timepiece I featured from the collection of Eric Clapton was his super-rare and highly coveted platinum Patek Ref 2499. It sold for a whopping $3.6 million in 2012 Patek Ref 2499. The opening bid on this Rolex Oyster Chronograph Ref 6034 is set at € 50,000, but the final result could easily surpass this figure and reach into six figures if the right bidders show up. This Rolex Ref 6034 does not have the elite status of a platinum Patek 2499, but it is still a very special watch, in superb condition, with great provenance. A wonderful piece for the passionate and deep-pocketed Rolex collector.
