Explorer II model 1655

The Rolex Explorer II model 1655 with the orange 24 hour hand was produced for a only a couple of years in the 1970s. Because it was only produced for a relatively short amount of time it is a particularly rare timepiece. It then became a very popular watch starting in the 1990's making it now a very collectible piece. This particular watch is from 1972 with the original un-refinished dial. It is selling on our website for $9,500.
