Rolex Explorer II 16550

By Paul Altieri

If you're in the market for a very collectible Rolex tool watch, consider the Explorer II ref. 16550. The Explorer II collection, itself, is widely sought-after for its versatile styling and attractive price point. The ref. 16550 is a particularly intriguing edition of the collection that is often referred to as the "transitional Explorer II" as it was the first reference to feature a larger 40mm case, a higher-beat cal. 3085 Perpetual movement, and a modern dial configuration that replaced the stick and baton hour markers with Rolex's staple dot, baton, and inverted triangle markers. The 16550 was also the first Explorer II to feature a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. An effortless balance between vintage and modern, this Explorer II is a must-have.

    I have made several purchases and one sales through Bob’s. The order process, payment, processing, and most importantly delivery have all been absolutely flawless. Very quick and efficient. I never look anywhere else for used Rolex.

    Superb site and transaction, phenominal delivery time. Some slight confusion concerning the special discount at the time. I didn't receive it. No big deal I would not hesitate to purchase another rolex from Bob's ! ***

    The purchasing process was quick and easy once I finally made my selection. Bob’s customer service was excellent. All my questions and concerns were addressed to my satisfaction. But most important of all, my husband loves his new watch!
