Watch details

"Representing the end of an era"- Josh Bonifas. This watch would have been among the last examples of a ref. 1016 Explorer produced or sold. It also marked the end of the use of plastic crystals, as Rolex transitioned all models to sapphire. These later examples have a unique place in the history and evolution of the model that make them relevant to the collector. This piece comes with the original warranty paper and booklet. The dial has been replaced during service. 36mm. Stock 37687
