  • Product Notes

    The Rolex Explorer is one of the most enduring watches of the Rolex line. As a watch that was designed for use by explorers, it puts a premium on durability and functionality; a true classic of timeless masculine luxury. This early 1970s so-called 'Frog Foot' dial is an example of the quintessential Rolex tool watch. The matte dial on this Explorer is in outstanding condition with fully intact tritium lume on the hands and dial, which have adopted a uniform rich vanilla patina. The case is not over polished and the solid link Oyster bracelet has minimal stretch. Our pictures are an important part of the condition report
