Rolex Explorer II 16550 Cream Rail Dial

Sold

THE TRANSITIONAL CREAM RAIL EXPLORER

This Explorer 2 is a transitional era watch, when Rolex first began utilising sapphire glass crystals on their sports watches. This watch benefits from being accompanied by its original boxes and papers. These watches featured dials that were known to change colour from white to cream as can be seen on this example. The gentle aging seen on the hour markers perfectly match the hands’ lume tone. The bezel is in lovely condition with the black paint still intact in the markers and numbers. The radial brushing is still very pronounced around the full circumference of the bezel and the overall case condition is very good. The later 78360 bracelet is in very good condition with minimal stretch.
