Rolex Vintage Explorer 1016 w/ Glossy Gilt Dial 

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, appearing to be unpolished and exhibiting minimal wear from typical use. The dial is the show stopper of this piece; the glossy, gilt dial is in stunning shape and beginning to fade to a dark brown hue. We believe that in a few years this will be a beautiful tropical dial that collectors are going crazy for right now. On top of that, the luminous material is still active and will glow for a brief period of time when charged. Mounted on a complementary leather strap, this piece would be the envy of any collection. If you have any questions please contact Larry at [email protected].
