Choose your Rolex chronometer. (Note: the chronograph is the cheapest of the bunch!)

You're welcome guys. For what I paid for this formerly "free" brochure, I could have bought a 6234 chrono and a 5508 Sub back in 1960.

I have better scans of the booklet on my office computer, but today is a holiday. I will replace these scans in a few days.

Thanks for the nostalgic trip, Dave. It's fun to look at that historical perspective once in a while.
