Watch details

This is a lovely Rolex Explorer II Reference 1655 from 1977. The overall condition of this watch is excellent. The original dial is nice and clean with some aging on the lume. The hands also have their original lume. The case is nice and strong as well as the bezel. This watch comes on its original Rolex heavy oyster link bracelet with flip lock clasp.

Rolex presented the Oyster Perpetual Explorer II, dedicated to polar explorers, speleologists, and all those pushing the boundaries of exploration. The watch featured a distinctive 24-hour hand, an invaluable aid around the poles and beneath ground when you can't tell night from day.
