This popular model falls among the category of “Neo Vintage” sport models from the 1980’s and 1990’s which are fitted with sapphire crystals, but which still used the more vintage era tritium lumes on the dial and hands. Starting in 1998, Rolex switch from using tritium, to the brighter glowing Luminova. The tritium model Explorers, Submariners, and GMTs have all become collectible models.

A classic contemporary collector’s model for a man and also popular as an oversized model for a woman.
