Rolex Explorer II ref 16550 Cream Dial circa 1986


Extremely nice example Rolex “cream dial” Explorer II ref 16550 serial # 9.6 million circa 1986. This is the first generation sapphire crystal Explorer II with the most desirable characteristics of this model; rich cream dial with contrasting white luminous indexes and hands, original silver (not black) luminous surrounds, which “rail dial” configuration of 2 lines of SCOC printing, and with correct and original square font 24 hour bezel. One of the nicest examples we have seen in a very long time. Fitted with Rolex heavy Oyster bracelet with deployment clasp. Often we see this model offered for sale as a cream dial when the dial hasn’t actually turned cream color. There is no question about the rich and very pleasing cream color with contrasting white lumes on this beauty. We don’t expect this one to hang around for very long. Guaranteed genuine and offered with our 1 year warrantee of accurate time keeping and operation.
