Vintage Rolex Explorer 1016

By Paul Altieri, 
The successor to the Rolex Explorer model 6610, the 1016 was produced around 1963 and continued to evolve until 1989. With the reference 1016, Rolex doubled the Explorer’s water resistance from 50 meters to 100 meters! Rolex also updated the text on the dial, changing the “Officially Certified Chronometer” text found on the 6610 to “Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified”.
This lovely reference 1016 from 1979 features its original black matte dial retaining its vintage look and print. The luminous indexes have aged to a pleasing light yellow tone, giving it an unmistakable vintage character. Combined with its well-preserved case and Oyster bracelet, this watch is a highly collectible and attractive variant of the iconic Explorer that is sure to please.
