About this watch

Regarded as the first true Explorer the model reference 6610 was only manufactured for a very short period of time from its introduction in 1959 until it was replaced in 1963 by the reference 1016 ,The 1016 was by comparison manufactured for a full 26 years ,However it is the ref 6610 that has remained below the radar until recently ,with the surge in prices for all things sports Rolex wise it is harder to find something that is extremely wearable yet comparatively affordable.

The example I have for you today from c 1960 is just such a piece ,the 36 mm stainless steel case retains its crisp lines and the wonderful original gilt dial aged to a unique patination.

The watch is fitted to a later sports corfam strap and fitted with a genuine Rolex steel buckle
