The 16550 Rolex Explorer II marked the first instance of a sapphire crystal within the collection. It was also the first 40mm reference, making the ref. 16550 somewhat of a transitional Rolex. An upgrade from the ref. 1655, the ref. 16550 also received a thinner 24-hour hand and the now-iconic Rolex sports watch dial configuration that includes Mercedes hands and circle, baton, and inverted triangle hour markers. The Explorer II 16550 wristwatch is still fitted with a fixed 24-hour bezel and is presented in all-steel. The edition that you see here today is a very desirable variation that also features a striking black dial.
