As the current CEO of DreamWorks Animation he has overseen production of more major hits including Shrek and Madagascar. 

Until today there has been a mystery surrounding which Rolex watch Jeffrey Katzenberg wears. It always appeared he wore a Rolex Datejust on a Jubilee Bracelet, but I discovered something amazing! He wears a very rare and unusual vintage Rolex Chronograph as you can see in the two photos below.

Grandfather Of The Rolex Daytona

So what kind of Rolex Chronograph exactly is Jeffrey Kaztengerg wearing in the photos above? It is a Pre-Daytona Chronograph Reference 6235 with dual scale Telemeter dial. The Rolex Chronograph Reference 6234 was introduced in 1955–coincidentally, the same years Rolex introduced the Rolex GMT Master.

The Rolex Chronograph Reference 6234 was made from 1955 to 1961, and during those 6 years Rolex averaged approximately 500 per year. The Reference 6234 is the great grandfather of the modern stainless steel Rolex Daytona.
