By Paul Altieri,
Steve McQueen, the ultimate king of cool, has the Explorer II 1655 named after him by collectors. This fact is highly ironic considering that there is no proof that he owned or wore this model. However this model is definitely cool to own and admire for its history and durability. Manufactured to withstand the rigors of extreme exploring like hang-gliding and mountain climbing, this model can live up to whatever wear you can throw in it path.
This timepiece is a 3.0 million serial meaning it was manufactured in 1972. The Mark II dial and hands are in beautiful shape giving this watch a fantastically clean yet vintage appearance. The case is in wonderful shape as well. It has been lightly polished in its life and has nice thick lugs. The case does show appropriate wear for its age. The original 7836 oyster bracelet is in good shape and its 10 foldover links shows moderate stretch. If you have any questions please contact Larry at [email protected]
