Rolex Explorer I 1016 with Tropical Underline Dial on Jubilee Bracelet
The Rolex Explorer reference 1016 we have here was manufactured in 1964 and is fitted with one of the most stunning dials we have seen. It is an ultra brown underline 3-6-9 dial, which has turned from its original black color. The case and movement are in outstanding condition. The Rolex Explorer 1016 is an under appreciated watch and it really shouldn’t be. It’s as comfortable and durable as any other sport Rolex. This watch takes it name after the famous Everest expedition conducted by Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary in 1953. Edmund reached the world’s highest peak wearing a Rolex Oyster Perpetual, which would later become the Rolex Explorer.
