Dated from c 1958 and in stunning condition the explorer is instantly recognizable by its 3,6,9 configuration dial and the colour tone on this piece is exceptional having been expertly restored during its life at some point .Many collectors would prefer the decaying lume pots left or dials left cracked it is true but equally many clients want a vintage watch with undisputed pedigree and heritage but equally pleasant to look at .me I have to say the colours on this dial have me won over on this piece .
With an oyster case measuring 35.6 mm excluding the crown it is a vintage watch that wears perfectly well today
I am pleased to report that this piece also benefits from just receiving a full service by vintage watch expert Simon Freese and so is fully guaranteed for 18 months and keeping great time .
The watch comes fitted to a later black leather strap with steel Rolex buckle
