Rolex Explorer II ref 16550 Transitional Model Patina’d Dial circa 1987

SOLD

Scarce transitional model Rolex Explorer II ref 16550 serial # R2 circa 1987 with richly patina’d luminous indexes and hands. This is the first generation sapphire crystal Explorer II model with scarce and correct original “square font” 16550 bezel. The original glossy black dial features richly contrasting patina’d luminous indexes with matching hands.  Exceptional condition example, with super minty case, bezel, dial, and unusual original Rolex D link Jubilee bracelet with deployment clasp. Watch may have sat in a safe for decades, as it appears nearly unworn. Typically this model is seen with Oyster bracelet but the matching condition and end pieces strongly suggest the bracelet is original to the watch.  Guaranteed genuine and offered with our 1 year warrantee of accurate time keeping and operation.

NOTE: very faint rubbing visible under a loupe where the inside circle of the hour hand may have rubbed on the dial. Not visible without a loupe.
