Vintage Rolex Explorer 1016 

The Rolex Explorer Reference 1016 is an excellent vintage watch for any collector, new or seasoned. This particular reference was the most common Explorer series made with a production range of over 25 years beginning in 1963. This long production run resulted in a number of variations in the watch. Some early version featured a radium dial which was quickly replaced due to its radioactive nature.

This timepiece features the early style caliber 1560 movement used in this model. It was later replaced with the caliber 1570 movement to incorporate a new "hack" feature, which stops the second hand when the crown in pulled out to the hand setting position. This watch has the newer style Oyster bracelet, which replaced the original folded link one on the 1016 Explorer. The original black gloss dial sports a creamy 3-6-9 Arabic numeral and baton marker combination.

The 1016 was discontinued in 1989 but continues to be one of the most popular vintage Rolex watches. You can see a version of it below being worn by Mad Men character Don Draper.
