Men's Models
The Explorer 1 model was developed with the aim of creating a durable watch that could withstand harsh environments for explorers who travel to various places. While retaining the Oyster case and perpetual functions, the streamlined design has attracted many people, and the refined details of this sports model make it a model of perfect functional beauty.
This time, we will introduce the Explorer 1 Ref. 1016, one of Rolex's most representative sports models. First introduced in 1963, this historic model is one of the most iconic vintage Rolexes, beloved by adventurers and watch enthusiasts alike. In particular, this model, the final R series produced in 1988, is highly rare and has become a valuable item for collectors. The beautiful sandblasted matte black dial, classic borderless Arabic numerals, and Mercedes hands give it a sense of historical value.
The movement is equipped with a hackable automatic caliber 1570. As the name suggests, this movement has passed Chronometer certification and combines high precision and durability. It was produced for a long period from 1965 until the late 1980s and is said to be a "monumental piece of automatic winding movement", and it also served as the basis for subsequent Rolex automatic winding movements, making it a major presence.
The bracelet is set with a genuine stainless steel Oyster hard bracelet. This particular item is a gem that comes complete with a genuine box and manufacturer's guarantee. Furthermore, the first part of the serial number is R88*, the same as the year of manufacture, 1988, and the sale date is January 1st, 1989, in Hong Kong, so it has a fascinating story that is sure to please any enthusiast. A repair invoice is also included, but as far as I can see, no parts have been replaced and only an overhaul has been performed. Please come and see us in store.
