Rolex, in the world of watchmaking is one of the most powerful and well-known names in history of watches. The following lots are some of Rolex’s most iconic models that pay homage to the brand that even today is constantly improving its manufacture fueled by the true desire for constant innovation.
The Explorer 1016 is one of the most iconic Rolexes, that was in production for almost 30 years. This reference started with a gilt, glossy dial, and towards late 1966, early 1967 the manufacture switched to a matte dial with painted numerals, which was made by the manufacture well into the 1980s.
Special attention should be paid to the present Explorers serial number. It is quite similar to that of Ian Fleming’s own personal Explorer. The serial number of the Ian Fleming Explorer is 596’851, just a few hundred watches later.
