Perfectly coeval watch!!!
The watch is in excellent condition with no significant signs of use aside from daily wear marks. There are a few light marks present from occasional use. These slight signs of use are very difficult to see in real life, but they do show up in very bright lighting and/or with magnification such as our macro photos!
Aside from this, the watch is sharp, clean, and very well preserved! The crystal is MINT and free of any imperfections. The bezel is in very good condition! The oyster bracelet (ref. 93150 - 501B final) is in very good condition with moderate stretch, clasp engagement (code V2 = February 1996) functions as very well.
The watch functions properly, the EXPLORER II has been overhauled by our service center (only authentic Rolex parts have been used), should any issues occur, the watch is covered under 2-year Orologi & Dintorni warranty from date of your purchase!!!

Size guide for wristbands

1 | Lug width

The lug width is the width of the strap at the end that is attached to the watch. This is the interior distance between the two lugs (horn-like protrusions) on the watch casing. The strap will fit your watch only if the lug width of the watch is the same width as the strap.

2 | Buckle width

The buckle width is the width of the strap at the buckle end. If you want to keep your watch’s original buckle and replace only the strap, the width of the original buckle must be identical to the strap width. For watches with folding clasps, please choose a strap specially made for your particular clasp.

3 | Strap length

The strap length is the combined length of the short strap side 3A (without buckle) and the long strap side 3B. For metal straps, the length of the strap including the clasp is measured in the closed position.

4 | Strap thickness

Strap thickness is the height of the strap. Many leather straps thin out towards the buckle end, or “taper”. If you want to keep your watch’s original buckle and replace only the strap, the strap thickness must match the height of the original buckle. For watches with folding clasps, please choose a strap specially made for your particular clasp.
