Rolex Explorer II ref 16550 Patina’d Dial circa 1986 B & P

SOLD

A very desirable example transitional model Rolex Explorer II ref#16550 serial # 9.3 million, circa 1986 complete with box and papers. This is the first generation sapphire crystal Explorer II with glossy black, lightly spider’d dial, with richly contrasting patina’d luminous indexes with matching hands. Additionally, the dial is also the coveted “Rail Dial”, with a clean line of empty space in the center of the 6 o’clock text. In typography, this refers to a “center justified” type set. With original squared font 16550, a quick identifier of this model as the earlier first generation version Explorer II.

An extremely nice condition example, having had a very light polish to retain the lug bevels and thick nature of the 16550 case design. With original heavy Oyster 93150 bracelet, and 593 end pieces. Recently serviced, guaranteed genuine, and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate time keeping and operation.

This very desirable l980’s Explorer II includes the original Rolex warrantee papers, the inner and outer box, Explorer booklet, and the original serial#’d hang tag.
