Explorer MK1 Frog Coronet Dial Stainless Steel 1016
This is a pre-owned Rolex Explorer mk1 frog coronet dial men's 1016 watch. 36.00mm case size in stainless steel, black quarter arabic dial on a stainless steel oyster bracelet, powered by an automatic movement. This Rolex is in good condition complete with rolex box & guarantee booklet. Circa 1972.
Offered here is a stunning example of the Rolex Explorer 1016 MKI matte dial, accompanied with its original stamped serial number guarantee booklet and box. This rare Explorer was manufactured circa 1972.
This example has the correct MKI Frog Coronet dial for its 298---- serial number. The 1016 Explorers bridge the gap between a dress & sports tool watch, without having the crown guards or rotating bezels found on the sports models. The rectangular indices along with the 3, 6 & 9 numerals really make the 1016 stand out from other Rolex sports vintage models. The Explorer 1016 is becoming harder to acquire in good condition & seem to be a hidden gem amongst Rolex vintage collecting.
The condition of this vintage Explorer overall is very good. The case has been lightly polished in the past, but still retains equal lugs with the brushed finish to the top edges remaining well defined, the bezel ring has no major dings or scratches & compliments the appearance of this piece. The matte black dial is in outstanding condition with no apparent flaws with the appearance of the tritium markers all matching, the hands have been replaced at some point, but all 3 of them are starting to age consistently. The Plexiglass is the correct slightly chamfered type for this model & it is also free of any detrimental scratches or marks.
The watch comes on its original Rolex 7836 Oyster bracelet with 258 end links. It is stamped 3/71 advising it is the correct period for this Explorer, the bracelet is showing only light wear that is consistent for a vintage bracelet.
This stunning 1016 MKI Explorer is also accompanied with its original all-important punched paper guarantee booklet and box.
