Catalogue Note

Designed with a 24-hour bezel and a luminous 24 hour big arrow hand, the Rolex Explorer II reference 16550 is a watch that was designed for those who spend long periods of time in dark environments such as spelunkers. The present example of the reference 16550 is very rare as it is made as part of a special edition of watches commissioned by President Hafez al-Assad in the late 1980s.
