Explorer "Gilt Dial"
Stunning Vintage Example
This is certainly a vintage sports model we predict even greater things for, especially with the 60th anniversary of the Explorer fast approaching...
It's always rewarding to find such a rare and well preserved example of a 1967 gilt dial Explorer 1016. Unlike many other 1016's from this era, our 36mm Explorer dial has lost none of its glossy finish; with the beautiful gilt script debossed into the black laquer. The original creamy tritium of the hour markers (and matching 'Mercedes' hands), sit perfectly within their serifed borders, and identify this as a completely unrestored example - a collectors dream.
Fitted to its correct '7206' riveted construction Oyster bracelet, stamped '1st quarter 1968' and powered by Rolex's self-winding 1530 calibre movement. Did you know this was also the first Explorer to feature the S.C.O.C. dial?
