Vintage Rolex Explorer 1016 

By Paul Altieri,

The Explorer line of watches were produced to withstand extreme adventures. The prototype model was given to Tenzig Norgay and Sir Edmund Hillary as they ascended Mount Everest under brutally harsh conditions. The durable little watch survived with flying colors and quickly went into production. From that point to today, the Explorer model has remained virtually unchanged. That is a testament to Rolex’s craftsmanship, durability and tradition.

This 1.3 million serial 1016 has a stunning, lacquer dial and beautiful, gold, gilt lettering. The dial has aged incredibly well, displaying almost no wear. The hands have some slight mottling in the luminous material but match the hour markers quite well.

The watch case has just been polished and is free from scratches. It is on a USA oval link, jubilee bracelet with moderate stretch to the links. Overall, this watch is a superb vintage piece and would be a great addition to any collection. Please feel free to contact Larry with any questions at [email protected].
