Rolex Explorer II Straight Hand Box and Papers "Like New"

REF. 1655

About as good as it gets! A super mint MK1 Orange Hand with original box, papers and booklets. You really don't see them like this anymore- this is one of the finest examples we've seen. For the collector that wants top quality.


Case is in exceptional condition, showing sharp chamfered and thick lugs. Original fat font bezel is in equally exception condition with a sharp edge and fully enameled numbers. Some small superficial marks on the case, showing very light and careful wear.


Excellent condition tritium dial and hands with matching mid-cream patina. No color fading of the 24 hour "Orange Hand"


Comes with a 78360 band with an "A" date-code clasp and 580 end pieces. 12 links with little to no stretch.

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.
