Rolex 1655 "Rail Dial" Explorer 2
not in stock

This is a rolex 1655 explorer 2 from 1975 with rare and perfect „rail dial“. The vintage toolwatch still features all it´s original parts including the old rounded t116 plexi. the mk3 „rail dial“ with the words Superlative and officially, as well as chronometer and certified, being aligned over each other, is absolute flawless and appears with beautiful light eggshell toned tritium with perfect texture. the tritium in the original handset is matching that color perfectly.

the 38mm steel case has been polished before but is still very fat with strong lugs and an unpolished original mk3 bezel. the 78360 bracelet with 580 endlinks comes with some scratches from wearing and is in good and tight condition. The „Freccione“ has received a full movementservice from our watchmaker this March and was even tested waterresistant on 3 bar. The invoice will of course be delivered with, as well as a nice black Rolex box.

The 1655 Explorer 2 „Orange hand“ was also the choice of mountainclimber legend Reinhold Messner, like many beautiful images of the 70s and 80s still proof us.

Our example is for a collector who is looking for a beautiful example with flawless mk3 rail dial and which can also be worn as a stylish daily companion. A true icon of rolex toolwatch history.
