By Paul Altieri,
The Explorer reference 1016 has always been in demand and highly sought after by Rolex enthusiasts, and for good reason. The slim 36 mm case looks fantastic on your wrist and its dial has kept its winning looks for more than 5 decades. It is exceptionally well-balanced with Arabic numerals at 3, 6 and 9 o'clock, and no date window, keeping it clean and simple. When hunting for an Explorer, it is important to look for a good case, a good dial and a great patina, and the 1016 we have here offers all of that.
This 1016 is a beautiful piece. The case is in wonderful condition and exhibiting minimal wear from typical use. The dial is the show stopper of this piece; the matte dial is in stunning shape with a beautiful light creamy patina. Combined with its well-preserved case and stainless steel Oyster bracelet, this watch is a highly collectible and attractive variant of the iconic Explorer that is sure to please.
