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.
