Rolex Explorer II ref 1655 “Steve McQueen” circa 1978

SOLD

Rolex stainless steel Explorer II ref 1655 serial #5.4 million circa 1978. So called “Steve Mcqueen” model though reportedly there is no documentation that the famed actor and race car driver actually owned or wore such a watch. Featuring a 40mm diameter Oyster case with unpolished SS 24 hour bezel. Beautiful matte black dial with lightly patina’d luminous indexes and faded orange 24 hour hand. Powered by self winding movement with sweep seconds and date and 24 hour indications. On Rolex SS heavy Oyster link bracelet with deployment clasp. The bezel on this example is very sharp and unpolished, and it is our opinion that the case as well may have never been polished. Guaranteed genuine and offered with our 1 year warrantee of accurate time keeping and operation.

Note: A very pleasing example with original dial, hands, and bezel. Photos show some loss of original tritium luminous, but this does not compromise the especially pleasing vintage appearance of the watch. No restoration of the dial or hands has been undertaken. A very desirable model with great character.
