1986 Rolex Explorer II ref. 16550 “Cream Rail Dial, Box and Papers, Unpolished”

    -

    Up for grabs is a Rolex Explorer 2

    Reference 16550

    9.0 mil serial number circa 1986 production

    Excellent vintage condition case with sharp and original chamfers and finishes. Clear numbers between the lugs.

    Excellent and original “cream” dial with Rail print. Nice creamy patina on plots and good cream color on dial itself. The hands are original and tritium. There was some oxidation on GMT hand, so the patina is dark. The other hands retain white color. In this case it nicely shows the contract between white and actual color of the dial. I recommend getting the hands color matched by someone like LA Watchworks, but the watch is presented and sold as found. Original date disk with open 6’s and 9’s.

    Bezel is in excellent condition with and correct font for 16550.

    Bracelet is a Rolex 78360 with 12 links, G date code, 501B ends.

    Watch comes complete with Rolex boxes, sleeve, hang tags, warranty papers from Tourneau, even copy of sales receipt when purchased new.
