Vintage Rolex Explorer II Ref 1655

The 1655 Explorer is instantly recognizable from its bright orange 24 hour hand and steel 24 hour bezel. Rolex came out with this model in 1971 and it was specifically made for cave explorers. The purpose of the orange 24 hour hand is to help the wearer distinguish day vs night in environments where this isn't easily noticeable, like in a cave with complete darkness.

This example is in overall great condition and has aged beautify. From the custard colored lume to the vibrant orange 24 hour hand, this watch really pops. For a long time these 1655's were overshadowed by other Rolex sport models, but interest has gone up and we see many collectors seeking them out. Collectors tend to gravitate towards this model due to the striking and unique appearance compared to other Rolex models. This is a model we recommend to people who want a vintage Rolex, but are looking for something a bit different.
