- A STAINLESS STEEL AUTOMATIC CENTRE SECONDS WRISTWATCH WITH 24-HOUR INDICATION DATE AND BRACELET
REF 1655 CASE 4028457 EXPLORER II STEVE MCQUEEN CIRCA 1975
- stainless steel
This reference can be considered as a true "tool watch" as in addition to providing the 24 hour indication, the orange hand also serves as a compass. If it is pointing to the sun, the North is at 12/24 o'clock in the Northern hemisphere and the opposite in the Southern hemisphere.
Consigned by its original owner, in well-preserved condition and coming with a very complete set, this lot is a rare opportunity to acquire a most attractive example of this iconic reference.
A similar example is illustrated in Skeet, M. & Urul, N., Vintage Rolex Sports Models, 2002, p. 85.
