Rolex Explorer II ref 16550 Transitional circa 1986

SOLD

First generation Rolex Explorer II ref 16550 serial# 9.6 million circa 1986. Featuring 39.5mm diameter case with fixed 24 hour engraved bezel and sapphire crystal. With original black dial with nicely patina’d tritium luminous indexes and hands. Powered by self winding calibre 3085 movement with independently set hour hand for quick changing of date or second time zone. Shown on red silicon rubber or alternative leather bracelet for a great sporty look.

Note: The 16550 is the first generation sapphire crystal Explorer II, replacing the unpopular (at the time) 1655 so called orange hand Explorer II AKA Steve Mcqueen. Note the distinctive squared font of the correct 16550 bezel and dial signed SWISS T<25 denoting tritium as the luminous material. Very pleasing transitional vintage sports model.
