Rolex Explorer Steve McQueen

Rolex Steve McQueen Reference Number(s):


Years Rolex Steve McQueen was Produced:

1971 - 1984

Rolex Steve McQueen Nickname Origin:

The "Steve McQueen" nickname traces back to a Rolex advertising campaign from the 1970s, in which the watch manufacturer had used McQueen’s image to try to boost sales of the slightly obscure watch designed for speleologists. Despite sharing his name, the reference 1655 was never actually worn by Steve McQueen in his personal life. When not on set, McQueen chose to wear a stainless steel Submariner; however the high-profile advertisement campaign made such an impression that the reference 1655 Explorer II will forever be known as the "Steve McQueen."

Rolex Steve McQueen Celebrity Associations:

Steve McQueen, Jason Statham
