Transitional Rolex watches are very prized collector's items, both for their place in Rolex history and their unique character. Nearly every model in the Rolex portfolio has a transitional model, including the cult favorite Explorer II. The ref. 16550 is one such model that earns its title as a transitional watch because it was the first Explorer II to feature a larger 40mm case size, a cal. 3085 Perpetual movement, and a tougher scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. This reference was introduced in the mid-1980s and essentially bridged the gap between the Steve McQueen 1655 and the ref. 16570. The edition that you see here today is a desirable white dial Explorer II. If you've had your eye on this incredible Rolex, now is the time to invest in one for a competitive price.

Beautiful watch in excellent condition! I could not be happier! My experience with Bob's Watches was perfect. Great customer service and fast shipping.
