Rolex Cosmograph Moonphase 1957 Reference 6062


Rolex Cosmograph Moonphase
1957 Reference 6062

Rolex has a bizarre habit of recycling names. Take for instance, this Rolex ad from 1947. Notice Rolex refers to their Reference 6062 as a "Cosmograph." Recognize the world "Cosmograph?" Today Rolex refers to the Rolex Daytona as a "Cosmograph." So what does "Cosmograph" mean? According to an encyclopedia it means:

"1. The science which describes and maps the general features of the universe (both heavens and the earth), without encroaching on the special provinces of astronomy or geography. 2. A description of representation of the universe or of the earth in its general features."

My absolute favorite Rolex model in history is the Reference 6062 Moonphase with the star indices on the dial, and here is a 1947 Rolex catalog page.
