Since its introduction in 1953 and the first summit ascent of the Everest on the same year, the Rolex Explorer has embodied the pioneering and adventurous spirit of the brand.
The most famous Explorer reference is arguably the 1016 which was produced between 1963 and 1989.
This present lot is very attractive, not only because it is an early example, but also thanks to the very rare tropical patina of the dial.
